Mission:Impossible (1996)
Although I don't like Tom Cruise,the man character in this film,I just love this film!. Set mostly in Prague,it's all about undercover C.I.A agents who are on a mission to find a 'mole' in their ranks.Most of Toms agents get killed on this trip and he is left to take the blame for it,so he enlists the help of a few more disavowed agents.But things are not as they seem.The best part is the 'team' breaking into the main C.I.A offices in Langley America,the helicopter scene near the end is unbelievable,and I have to go into the loo so as not to see my man get it....

Par-dela nuages (1995)
Par dela nuages,aka,Beyond the clouds,is made up of 4 vignettes (which is actually 5),which are adapted from Antonioni's 1983 book 'That Bowling Alley on the Tiber,Tales of a Director'.This is narrated all the way through by John Malcovich,so this is quite a melancholy series of mini love story films within one.
The first one is 'Story of a Love Affair That Never Existed'.This is a story of a relationship,Sastre and Rossi Stuart,that goes on for years without ever being consummated.
In the second story,'The Girl, the Crime',we find the narrator,John Malkovich,who actually finds himself drawn to a shopgirl,Marceau.She  killed her own father by stabbing him 12 times.
The third story in this combines "The Wheel" about a man,Peter Weller,caught between his wife,Fanny Ardant,and his mistress,Caselli,with "Don't Try To Find Me.".It all ends where it began,a relationship that can never be consummated.
Lastly,'This Body of Filth',a phrase from the 'Life of St. Theresa'.A footloose young man,Perez,falls for a young lady,Jacob,who is about to enter into a convent.
I have only ever watched this film once,Jeans role was very small in it and I can't remember which one of these stories that it was actually in?.But from what I remember.....Jean Renos goes home one day to find that his wife has gone and has taken everything but his half of a photograph with her.The place is even up for rent and he doesn't know a thing!.A woman who has broken up with her husband comes to look at the place,they start talking.Then Jean kind of tells her that they could get together as they both need to mend their broken hearts.I think this is the 'Don't try and find me' one?....Aw,how could any real woman do that to Jean?.
