We’ve brought ten great comedy films that use too much refined humor for the general public. They are works that take advantage of a more intelligent humor, working with various stories, such as life in a small American city, the friendship relationship of two friends, the troubled teenage school life and so on. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Parents (Bob Balaban, 1989)With the 1950s as a backdrop, the plot brings the daily life of a common family, composed of the couple and a child in the late childhood, inserted into a peaceful suburban reality of the United States. The film gains its dynamism when the strange habits of his parents begin to leave the boy paranoid, making him doubt the real identity of the two. Incredible in all its aspects, this film, little known and appreciated, is a delight to the film lover who is looking for something different in the seventh art. A film that walks between the genres of comedy, suspense and terror in a unique way, working to fascinate each scene transposed. Randy Quaid and Mary Beth Hurt’s great performances in front of the protagonists are still worth highlighting.
9º – True Stories (David Byrne, 1986)Life in a small town in Texas is studied by the film, bringing the social relationships of its residents and the strange way in which they deal with everyday situations. David Birner’s experience in cinema as a director, ‘Real Stories’ is a good option from the 1980s, with a big tangle of interesting characters and the pulsating figure of that small town.
8º – Career Girls (Mike Leigh, 1997)In the plot, two friends meet again after several years, remembering, together, several of the most important fragments of the past. Belonging to Mike Leigh’s cinema, ‘Simply Friends’ has a nostalgic and melancholic atmosphere for its scene unleashing, bringing the lives of two women who have to deal with the arrival of 30 years old.
