Movies featuring "Nessun Dorma" (Puccini) on soundtrack

I was introduced to the beautiful "Nessun Dorma" by the movie below. It's one of those soundtracks that I know that I've heard in a lot of places before, but never really noticed it. Thank you Mandy Moore, for actually mentioning the author of the piece, Puccini, in your movie:

Chasing Liberty (2004)

So now I'm wondering, what other great movies use that track?

It's actually a collection of short films, (music videos if you must) set to famous opera aria's.

And it's pretty cool.
