L'amore

Roberto Rosselini directs Anna Magnani in two short films about love and lonliness. In the first, a woman makes a last-ditch attempt to save her relationship over the phone. In the second, a peasant woman believes she is pregnant with the son of God.

L'amour Existe

Director Maurice Pialat’s poetic 1960 short film about life on the outskirts of Paris.

L'amour Fou

The movie L'amour fou

L'argent

An innocent turns to crime after coming into possession of a counterfeit 500 Franc note in Robert Bresson's final film.

L'assassin Habite Au 21

Inspector "Wens" Vorobechik and his aspiring actress girlfriend search for a serial killer who leaves mysterious calling cards.

L'atalante

In Jean Vigo’s hands, an unassuming tale of conjugal love becomes an achingly romantic reverie of desire and hope. Jean, a barge captain, marries Juliette, an innocent country girl, and the two climb aboard Jean’s boat, the L’Atalante—otherwise populated by an earthy first mate and a multitude of mangy cats—and embark on their new life together. Both a surprisingly erotic idyll and a clear-eyed meditation on love, L’Atalante, Vigo’s only feature-length work, is a film like no other.

L'avventura

A girl mysteriously disappears on a yachting trip. While her lover and her best friend search for her across Italy, they begin an affair. Antonioni’s penetrating study of the idle upper class offers stinging observations on spiritual isolation and the many meanings of love.

L'eclisse

The conclusion of Michelangelo Antonioni’s informal trilogy on modern malaise, L’eclisse (The Eclipse) tells the story of a young woman (Monica Vitti) who leaves one lover (Francisco Rabal) only to drift into a relationship with another (Alain Delon). Using the architecture of Rome as a backdrop for the couple’s doomed affair, Antonioni reaches the apotheosis of his modernist style, returning to his favorite themes: alienation and the difficulty of finding connections in an increasingly mechanized world.

L'enfance Nue

The singular French director Maurice Pialat puts his distinctive stamp on the lost-youth film with this devastating portrait of a damaged foster child. We watch as ten-year-old François (Michel Terrazon) is shuttled from one home to another, his behavior growing increasingly erratic, his bonds with his surrogate parents perennially fraught. In this, his feature debut, Pialat treats that potentially sentimental scenario with astonishing sobriety and stark realism. With its full-throttle mixture of emotionality and clear-eyed skepticism, L’enfance nue (Naked Childhood) was advance notice of one of the most masterful careers in French cinema, and remains one of Pialat’s finest works.

L.a. Story

L.A. Story is a 1991 American romantic comedy film directed by Mick Jackson and written by Steve Martin, who also stars in the film. Set in Los Angeles, California, it tells the story of Harris K. Telemacher (Martin), an L.A. weatherman who falls in and out of love with the aid of a talking freeway sign which arguably speaks for the city itself. Over the years since its initial release, L. A. Story has acquired a strong underground and cult following. The movie is both a romantic comedy and a satire and celebration of life and L.A. culture. Three songs by Enya, "On Your Shore" and "Exile" (from Watermark) and "Epona" (from Enya), can be heard in this motion picture.

L.i.e.

A 15-year-old Long Island boy loses everything and everyone he knows, soon becoming involved in a relationship with a much older man.
