I'm a fan of tragic and sometimes strange/supernatural love stories and was looking for suggestions of films I should check out.

 

Just a few I love:

Solaris (Tarkovsky version)

Hiroshima Mon Amour

Lost Highway/Mulholland Drive

Chasing Amy

That Obscure Object of Desire

 

Always looking for suggestions.

Thanks

I'd suggest Jean-Pierre Melville's moody telling of Jean Cocteau's Les Enfants Terrible; David O. Selznick's tale of supernatural love, Portrait of Jennie; and Luchino Visconti's heartbreaking Le Notti Bianche...

Solaris:

 

I'm not as well-versed as ol' Jack there, but ;-)

 

here are three all American films -

 

Ghost

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

Somewhere in Time

 

They're all basically tragic love stories with supernatural thrown in the mix.

 

Enjoy - Anne

Jack beat me to the punch on "Portrait of Jennie."

 

 

"Sentimental Journey" (Fox, 1946) qualifies on the tragic and supernatural part. However, for someone who's watched "Lost Highway" and "Mulholland Drive," "Sentimental Journey" is as far from David Lynch films as "Driving Miss Daisy" is from "Bullitt" (to steal a line from a "Mystery Science Theater 3000" episode!).
