Showdown - Best Kiss

Hope for more to come to mind but here's the thought process behind each.

Cinema Paradiso: All those stolen kisses by the censoring Priest finally playing on the big screen. A beautiful crescendo to a beautiful film.

E.T.: Elliot kissing his crush mirroring the kiss in the Quiet Man both surrounded by the turmoil of nature, both an expression.

It's a Wonderful Life: The almost kiss while George and Mary talk on the phone. The frustration, the anger, the emotion... the passion.

Don't Look Now: Donald and Julie rolling on the bed. It's physical, but it's about so much more than "did they or didn't they?". It's about a respite from grief, about anchoring to the one you love in the storm of despair.
