LIVE POLL: Fantasy Movies Without Special Effects

All these movies have two things in common: they belong to the fantasy genre and they don't feature any particular special effects, which means that they're set in the modern world and the magic that allows the story to transcend the rules of the natural world is implicit or scarcely visible on screen.

So, which fantasy movies with no effect (except on your heart) is your favorite?

@Pencho15​ 

Thank you very much.

Please can you double check your suggestions, I haven't seen all the films you suggested, but I know for sure that "Being John Malkovich" has special effects (the scene with all the Malkoviches), pretty sure "Mrs. Muir"  or "Wings of Desire"  have scenes where the ghost either crosses a wall or look transparent (but I may be wrong, it's been a while since I saw them), "Seventh Seal" is set in the medieval age and has that supernatural feel, just like "Princess Bride"... also any films that actually show heaven (big white place with clouds around) wouldn't work.

@ElMaruecan82​ Some of them I watched long ago, so I can't be 100% sure that they have no small visual effects, but I'm pretty sure that Yesterday, Look Who's Back, Ruby Sparks, The Family Man and It Happened Tomorrow should be on the safe side.

Pleasantville, as far as I can remember, has a mixing of colour and black and white worlds which probably can be considered a visual effect, but that and a firemen crew putting off a fire is all there is.

The rest I don't remember anything, but I can't be sure, I didn't remember the scene in Being John Malkovich until you mentioned it so I can be wrong about them too.

Thank you for the detailed clarification, I've added the safe side ones :)

A mix of colors and B&W is a visual effect in a very loose way but still...
