10 Most Poetic Films Ever Made

3º – Days of Heaven (Terrence Malick, 1978)A poor young man who works on a farm makes a plan, trying to convince his girlfriend to marry the owner of the place, a man who was dying. However, things get out of his control when the girl begins to fall in love with the owner of the place, putting the whole initial plan in danger. ‘Days of Heaven’ works with a poetic atmosphere from beginning to end, counting on a simple but extremely visceral plot in what she proposes to tell.


2º – 3 Women (Robert Altman, 1977)A naive young woman from a small town in the United States has the chance to build her life in California. Instead, the young woman, wrapped in the reality of her new work, will meet another young woman, this more mature and with a deviant behavior, developing a strange relationship of friendship with her. Irretrievable, ‘3 Women’ is a film that has a burning atmosphere that is an active part of the plot, contrasting well all the inconsistencies found in the two central characters. Another fact that still elevates the film to the nickname of masterpiece is the breaking of that strange drama that we have in its final stretch, becoming a psychological terror that will certainly scare you more than many films characteristic of the horror genre. Shelley Duvall’s unforgettable performance in one of the characters and, of course, the great prominence of the whole work, the unique presence of Sissy Spacek playing the other central persona in history, achieving the greatest performance of his brilliant career and one of the most striking in cinema in the 1970s, are still worth mentioning. Finally, a masterpiece by director Robert Altman.


1º – Persona (Ingmar Bergman, 1966)A nurse is put in charge of an actress who had recently suffered a psychological breakdown. In a state of complete isolation, the two will begin to enter into a cathartic process that will change the way they understood life. ‘Persona’ works with the figure of building social masks in the human being, showing how, at times, we can dress them and forget our own essence.
