Befriending the lyrical loneliness...

Essential movies for lonely people out there (like me) if you want to feel something in this big big world. To see every color, every character in desperate search for some human warmth, to understand and befriend them as we ourselves are looking for a proper connection.

Suggestions are appreciated :-)
