help me id a movie: 80's. near the end, there is a widow/wealthy older woman who laments her husband's riches, insinuating their great wealth has not led to happiness. she shows the protagonist the tin foil/gum wrapper ring her husband proposed to her with when they were young, poor, and happy. any help?
moviefilter question: a film from probably the 80's. it takes place at a medieval university, i believe. a new initiate is taken to a hidden room, where the monks/professors/whatever they are have kept copies of all the texts that have been banned by the church or the powers that be. any ideas?
I'm looking for a movie from my childhood. It was most likely released in the late 80's / early 90's, and is a period piece taking place in turn of the century Europe. There fairies or magic of some fashion, a crystal ball figures into it, perhaps, and maybe a locket. My most vivid images of it are: someone falls through an ice sheet early on, and at the end the lead is hanged, but he wants death because he misses his love. That's about it.
