Do you like  European cinema? Do you like biographical films, films about painters? Are you interested in primitivism, art naïve? Do you like stories of people’s lives? Do you want to hear a story of a man who was living with passion despite life's adversities, a homeless, hearing and speech impaired person who become famous? Are you interested in history? How about a love story in ancient Rome during the times of Nero or a story of a little Jewish girl during WWII? Maybe you like thrillers and stories about serial killers?
