Best 35mm Lens (not adapter) - for "film" look

I posted before, but I wanted to know specifically the best 35mm lens I can get for my XH a1. I am wanting a "film" look. The LEAST EXPENSIVE the better.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Two things...

First, you say you want "the best" and "the least expensive." Those are mutually exclusive terms.

Second, no one single specific 35mm still photography lens is going to magically give you the "film" look. It's not as if there's one or two among hundreds that will do it when all others can't. The so-called "film" look is the result of a variety of different factors involving pre-production, production, and post-production elements all working together in order to create a look similar to 35mm film. It's such an involved and popular process that we have an entire forum dedicated to discussing it.
