Raiders of the Lost Ark (Original) / Raiders of the Lost Ark (US)
Indiana Jones is a professor of archaeology who goes on a quest to find a biblical artifact with an important symbolic significance. To find it, however, he must venture through inhospitable environments and elude the nazis. The editing of this emblematic film for adventure cinema is impeccable, with action sequences that keep the audience on the edge of their seats and that cleverly incorporate humour and romance. Directed by Steven Spielberg, this intriguing journey owes much to its star, Harrison Ford, who proved iconic as Indiana. The film became a classic, winning 5 Oscars and was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director, becoming the start of a successful franchise with a lasting legacy in popular culture.
