Great choice!

Anyways, I would totally recommend two films I mentioned from my motherland India-  Asha Jaoar Majhe (Labour of Love) and Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries). Both are art-house films which capture the very essence of Kolkata and Mumbai respectively.

That's a great choice, mate!

Although I love that movie, it's hard for me to pick one actually!

Before Sunset take place in Paris.
And Before Sunrise is Vienna.

I would select each city only ones in the list. FYC

Thanks for the suggestion, Hoekkie!
Corrected the cities for 'Before' series.

I feel that, if I select each city only once, the poll will be between cities and not between the movies. And even it's difficult to choose one movie depicting the city. eg. Roma, The Great Beauty and La Dolce Vita- all are great films. It's difficult to pick one.

I really like this one. My vote would probably go to Manhattan but there are several great films on the list.

FYC:
Do the Right Thing (NYC)
Salaam Bombay! (Mumbai)
Crash (L.A.)

Thanks Ruby!

Even I am confused which one to pick when there are so many great movies in the list. I may go with Hiroshima Mon Amour or Lost in Translation.

At #33, your description says "Italy" (not a city).

I was thinking about suggesting La La Land. You have almost nothing from Los Angeles.

Sure someone else will bring it up... but very little of Fargo, North Dakota is depicted in Fargo (1996).  Most of the film (and atmosphere, culture, etc...) takes place in Minnesota.

I went with Manhattan not only as a favorite but also because of how significant of a role the city plays in lending to the magic of the film itself.
