    I must say that I'm a little disappointed with the suggestions. So let's try to make it better ;)

    I will start with Russia.

    Andrei Rublev, not so much historical portrait as realist depiction if medieval life in Russia. Director is Andrei Tarkowski.

    Ivan the Terrible I and II by Sergei Eisenstein. It's a portrait of the tsar who transformed Russian medieval state into an empire.

    War & Peace by Sergei Bondarchuck, duration 7h!

    Shadows of Our Forgotten Ancestors, Sergei Parajanov. A very beautiful film about life&love in 19th century Carpathian mountains among Hutsul ethnic group.

    Come and see by Elem Klimov. WWII. Here we go again, nasty Indoeroupeans fight without limits. Be warned, not really entertainment.

    I see you like historically based films. So do I. :)

    The only one I haven't seen is the first one. I'll try to find it.

    Yes, I love that kind of movie! But I'm no historian so I'm not particularly obsessed with perfect historical accuracy (there are history books for that). For ie, La Reine Margot was not particularly accurate but I enjoyed it. I also love all the TV series like The Crown, Victoria or Wolf Hall (excellent). Even The Tudors!
    I think you can find the French revolution with English subtitles on Amazon.com
    Do you have any good historically based Italian movie (the kind I've listed above) to recommend?

    Well, it doesn't cover the distant past, but it explains Italy from the 60's disruptions through the Red Brigades and beyond to 2003, and it's one of my favorite series ever, a recipient of many awards. It's great for Italians of the diaspora who really don't know what has formed the consciousness of modern Italians

    It's called "La Meglio Gioventu" or "The Best of Youth". It's available for free on amazon prime.

    Also available for free on amazon prime-
    Garden of the Finzi Continis
    The Vanishing of Pato-1890s Sicily


    Also on amazon prime: but they make you rent it. Perhaps they're available for free in France?

    "The Leopard" or "Il Gattopardo"
    "1900"
    "Sunflower" or Girasole-It's spectacular: Sophia and Marcello during WWII
    "A Special Day"-same as above
    "Rome, Open City" with Anna Magnani
    "Amarcord"

    I own all six to let you know how much I love them.

    On Netflix:
    The Medici-not accurate, but fun

    The following are not precisely historical films except that Mediterraneo is about Italian seamen during World War two, but they're wonderful. I don't know where you can even rent that, or Il Postino. Cinema Paradiso you can rent on amazon.

    Mediterraneo
    Cinema Paradiso
    Il Postino

    Two other good films, but Bread and Tulips is in a modern setting:
    Bread and Tulips, which I loved
    Malena

    Make you rent those too.

    I also own all of those, so you know how much I like them. :)

    Thanks for the list, I'll definitely check them out!
    It's high time I watch The Leopard at last.
    1900 is with Gerard Depardieu, I see.
    They all look good, I think I'll start with Il Postino since it's set in Procida.
    Oh, and The Medici looks great too. I love that kind of series.

    Have you watched The Man who will come (L'uomo che verrà) and The Tree of Wooden Clogs ('Albero degli zoccoli)? I've stumbled upon them while doing a search on Google. They sound like good movies too!

    I don't know how I could have forgotten to add them.

    They're absolutely fabulous. They're both going on the "presents you could give me list".:)

    Hatfields & McCoys on Netflix.

    Bill Paxton and Kevin Costner are excellent in their roles, in this mini-series.

    Here's an interesting tidbit: Devil Anse Hatfield, Patriarch from the Hatfield Clan had a life-sized Italian marble statue made for his grave back in 1921. On top of that he was buried in a steel coffin. The total cost at the time adjusted to inflation was over $100K.:

    The Hatfield children spent $5,000 on the statue, which arrived five years after their father was buried in 1921 -- in a $2,000 solid steel coffin.

    It is a landmark in West Virginia.

    Good movie. So is the one about the Czech resistance.

    I'm not happy with the selection on netflix of movies I haven't yet seen, so I cancelled it. I think I'll give Hulu a try.

    Favorite Historical Movies

    What films are there that are set around moonshine and the prohibition era?I dont mean documentries or television shows but just fictional or based on true event movies.I watched lawless last week and totally enjoyed it.Ive also read on here that thunder road is quite good.
