8º – Tangerines (Zaza Urushadze, 2013)The film brings a small fragment of the lives of some characters in the midst of the war in Georgia in the 1990s. Rustic in its ways, the film shows how the figure of human stupidity ends up limiting the healthy contact between some individuals of different nationalities. The rhythm proposed here is cadenced, exploring quite what each character has to offer to the storybook, leaving the most exciting part to the final scenes.

6º – The Pianist (Roman Polanski, 2002)Characterized as one of the greatest works of director Roman Polanski’s filmography, ‘The Pianist’ shows the journey by the simple attempt to survive by a Jewish musician in the midst of World War II. A sad movie in all its ways, not delivering to its viewer any positive stimulus.
