Black and white cinema is considered irrelevant, because modern technology allows you to shoot incredibly spectacular and vibrant color films. But it will be interesting to see some two-color pictures now.

Top 10 old black and white films that will be interesting to watch the audience today:

  1. "Live your life". This black and white picture in 1962 was created by Jean-Luc Godard, who at one time was in the ranks of the founders of the "new wave" of French cinema. He showed the audience a seemingly simple and so vital, but incredibly exciting, story of an ordinary provincial woman who decided to conquer the romantic capital of France. The girl came to Paris, inspired by the desire to stay in this city and take her place here, but, as is usually the case, she was on the outskirts. The picture is divided into twelve separate interconnected parts, the events of which unfold in the store of musical records, on the streets of Paris, in cafes and even in the police station. Viewers need to carefully observe what is happening and add their own opinions.
  2. "White Nights". The main character of this film, Mario, is a young Italian who faces Russian beauty Natalia and falls in love with her at first sight. Natasha’s grandmother sees poorly and maintains furnished rooms, and she strictly and tirelessly follows her granddaughter. Mario is very upset when he learns that his beloved is engaged to one of the guests of his grandmother's boarding house - a middle-aged man. But Natasha's fiance suddenly leaves and promises the bride to come in a year. The girl patiently waits for a man, but the romantic and temperamental Italian decides to take advantage of the absence of his rival and try to win the heart of the Russian beauty. He literally opens up a new world for her, and Natasha faces a dilemma: a promise made to the groom or new feelings that suddenly flare up.
  3. "Citizen Kane". The list of the best black and white films also included this one, according to the plot of which Charles Foster Kane, who is a breathtakingly rich newspaper businessman, suddenly dies in his own expensive and luxurious estate. When he dies, he manages to utter only one word: "Rosebud." The sudden death of Kane causes a real resonance in society, and several journalists decide to find out who Charles was. He lived a rather long life filled with ups and downs, in which there were many secrets. But the most important secret is the decoding of the incomprehensible and mysterious word "Rosebud."
  4. "M Killer". A maniac killer appeared in the city who brought fear to all the inhabitants. Regularly and very often, little girls do not come home for dinner and disappear.

A friend of the deceased, Martins is confident that his friend was a good man and definitely did not commit the bad deeds attributed to him. He begins his investigation in order not only to prove Lyme’s innocence and preserve his honor, but also to find the person who, according to Holly, killed his friend, is still at large and is somewhere very close.
