We’ve listed ten wonderful poetic films for you to meet on this list. Below is the best that cinema has to offer when we talk about the theme of this list, with works that, regardless of their genre, elevate a poetic figure, either for a narrative question or, properly, in the acts of its central characters, substantial for the final quality of what is proposed.

10º – The Mirror (Andrei Tarkovsky, 1975)A man in his last days of life remembers landmark events of his childhood, his mother and striking facts of his journey in the world.
