""Yesterday... all my troubles seemed so far away...

With the sad passing of Gloria Katz, writer of American Graffiti (1973) and the] release of Alfonso Cuarón's much anticipated Roma (2018), an autobiographical film based on his childhood in Mexico City, let's have a look on all these times where nostalgia was brought to the silver screen.

The following movies may not all be based on the director's or a writer's childhood or youth but they all have one thing in common, they convey a warm, sad, dreamy or bittersweet feeling of nostalgia, so powerful that some viewers might feel nostalgic about times or places they didn't even live in. (Another thing they have in common is that the main protagonist shouldn't be a gangster)

Which of these nostalgic films is your favorite?

Pretty sure there are others, I wanted to include Once Upon a Time in America but then I figured out it would make way for gangster biopics such as Goodfellas or City of God. And these movies don't exactly fit the purpose of this poll (though Leone's epic is incredibly moving on that level).. I'll add your suggestion. Thanks!

I can't wait to see Roma. Of the ones I've seen, it's a tough choice between a few, but probably Cinema Paradiso.
