We’ve selected ten movies every woman should watch before she’s 30. Below are works that explain in their plots the most basic characteristics of women’s daily life, their pleasures and problems in the midst of a traditional western society. They are light films that can provoke a positive sensation in the spectator at their end. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Like Father (Lauren Miller Rogen, 2018)After being abandoned at the altar by her fiancé, a woman in her thirties, shrouded in an inexorable obsession with her work, ends up receiving a visit from her father after several decades. After a night of drunkenness with him, she wakes up on a large holiday cruise that should be her honeymoon trip. Together, father and daughter will learn more about each other’s lives, discuss past events, and also glimpse outlets for their present concerns. A common comedy with a motivational aura, ‘Like Father’ is that traditional “feel good movie”, giving the viewer extremely fun moments that are never forced.
9º – Madame Bovary (Claude Chabrol, 1991)Based on Gustave Flaubert’s fabulous novel, the film brings the exacerbated trajectory of a young girl, exploring her eagerness to grow socially and her intense novels. This adaptation of ‘Madame Bovary’ is perhaps the best of all in the seventh art. Claude Chabrol manages to capture even the most emblematic nuances of the book, elevating a unique atmosphere for the unfolding of scenes. However, the main point of distinction between this work and the others is the presence of Isabelle Huppert as protagonist, delivering an unretouchable and visceral performance from the first to the last scene.
8º – Closer (Mike Nichols, 2004)Different, the plot distinguishes the routine of two distinct couples, united by the simple figure of chance, with their components finding the substance absent in their lives in individuals outside the arc of their relationship. Belonging to Mike Nichols’ cinema, this film is unretouchable from beginning to end, with a story that makes explicit the forms of love manifest in a traditional contemporary society.
