by sander-dammann | created - 2 months ago | updated - 2 months ago | Public

I asked my parents to recommend my twenty movies I haven't seen, because I wanted broaden my movie horizon even more.

My parents were and are very important to me in my discovery of good movies. So, I thought it was a good idea to honor them with this list.

I will watch them in 2020. In this list I will keep you up to date with my progress.

I counted Die Nibelungen as one movie.
