    My 5 favourite films of 1956, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
    Wilcox' FORBIDDEN PLANET, are :

    CALLE MAYOR
    LUST FOR LIFE
    SEVEN MEN FROM NOW
    LA TRAVERSEE DE PARIS
    UN CONDAMNE A MORT S'EST ECHAPPE OU LE VENT SOUFLLE OU IL VEUT




    (From 1949 to 1962 any Ozu's movie, with the exception of the unseen MUNEKATA KYÔDAI, would make my 5-titles lists. Because they are all like exquisite variations to each others, with the exception of OHAYÔ, I consider them as a one-and-single outstanding piece of achievement.)
