The Storytellers Club 'Love Fest'. Any takers?

Originally uploaded by yasmin the storyteller.
Slight change of plans.

Instead of working up (or down) my personal list of favourite films, I, otherwise known as "da Boss", would like to propose a Love Fest.

In other words, we work up (or down, as the case may very well be) my list of all-time favourite LOVE stories instead.

The next screening should be, not this Friday, but the next, inshaallah.

Please go through the list below and cast your choice now. The first 25 to do so will automatically earn their place at the next screening.

Type on folks!

Satyajit Ray's "Charulata"
Neil Jordan's "Mona Lisa"
Raj Kapoor's "Bobby"
Billy Wilder's "The Apartment"
Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights"
