punch-drunk love is a good choice :-D  love the cinematography and the way the story unfolded. it's not your usual romantic fare.
"Everything has a RHYTHM to it. But that doesn’t mean that the beat will last forever. With some songs, you don’t enjoy the beat; but after four and a half minutes you’ll be onto the next song. Some days you wake up and your rhythm is on. Some days it’s sketchy; but everyday, you wake up. Maybe that’s the agenda: FINDING YOUR RHYTHM EVERYDAY."

Niceeeee. :-D
I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right. What have I got Harry, hm? Why should I even make the bed, or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I'm alone. Your father's gone, you're gone. I got no one to care for. What have I got, Harry? I'm lonely. I'm old.

i think its great that a pta film won, but truly i say adaptation is a better film.

My second choice would have been Y Tu Mama Tambien.....but PDL easily cinches up first place. 8)
