7) When Harry Met Sally, USA
Rob Reiner's film sought the answer to the famous question: “Can a woman and a man be friends or their natural instincts will take over?” It's easy to guess that the movie defends the second point of view, although after a failed attempt to start an affair, Harry and Sally become friends, trusting each other all their secrets.
