What makes a movie beautiful? From a powerful story to impressive shots, cinema has many elements and is one of the most complex forms of art.
Keeping in mind how complex it is to call a movie “beautiful” – but this time considering the visuals of the film a bit more than the other elements – here is a selection of the most beautiful movies from the 1970s.

The movies on this list are not ranked.
