I vote for:
The Wind Will Carry Us (which incidentally, along with "Rosetta" is my favorite film from 1999)
The only other three that I have seen are:
Soloman and Gaenor - Good, but predictably tragic. In addition to the usual "Romeo and Juliet" angle, it reminded me a little of "Swept from the Sea".
Malena - Highly uneven; Tornatore seemed indecisive about whether to create a nostalgic, sentimental picture or a harsh, realistic one.
Goya in Bordeaux – Beautiful film, but the story was rather hollow. Not at all reminscent of Saura's great film, "Cria!"
