2º – Greenberg (Noah Baumbach, 2010)After his rich brother’s family goes on a trip, a middle-aged maladjusted man is in charge of the big family home. In place, the man ends up getting emotionally involved with a local maid, forming a strange romantic bond and showing all his immaturity in relation to the most basic instances of life. A light comedy, ‘Greenberg’ is a great option to introduce oneself to Noah Baumbach’s cinema, with a story that escapes the ordinary and fascinating characters.
1º – What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (Robert Aldrich, 1962)Two sisters live in a large house, where one of them should take care of the other, since she is paraplegic. However, the reality is quite different, showing the cruel relationship between the two, as well as the inherent psychological decline to which they are both subjected. The disturbing terror of the 1960s, famous for bringing Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as protagonists, ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?’ bothers us because of its history, which always opts for the most cruel ways out with one of the characters, raising the figure of madness and the past as driving forces in the whole plot.
