Worth to see.

We love cinema. We like to sit down with popcorn, nachos and Pepsi, in front of big screen and forget about our problems, our sadness and submerge into invented characters lives. And that’s great. We can get inspired from movies, stress out, find some topics to think about. The last thing is something that makes movies worth, for me, the most. I love, when after watching a movie, I still have this inside feeling. Today I decided to make a list of my favourite movies to watch, that really made me think and touched my heart.

1.       45 years (2015) (here)
“A married couple preparing celebrate their wedding anniversary receive shattering news that promises to forever change the course of their lives.”- imdb
The week before the anniversary Husband receive a letter, I don’t won’t to spoil what he read there, but it had a really big impact on them. They both review their lives and see how it changed. It is beautifully shown from more of the woman perspective (than as usually from a male one). It is said that this movie is based on a 12-page short story by David Constantine. It moved my heart with realness of their life, uncommon straggles and what love is really about (and how hard it can be). I cried really strongly and felt super sorry for main female character, Kate. All her life she tried very hard, and at almost the end, half of her life seems to be an accident, her love is like a mistake. It got 38 nominations and 19 wins (for example on Alliance of Woman Film Journalist, Berlin International Film Festival and other)

2.       Timbuktu (2014) (here)
“A cattle herder and his family who reside in the dunes of Timbuktu find their quiet lives- which are typically free of the Jihadists determined to control their faith- abruptly disturbed.”- imdb
Gorgeous, sad and moving movie about the radical Islam group and how they want to oversee others. We can find some fanatics trying to destroy others life with not only religion. This movie shows also the strength of ordinary people and their amazing imagination and warm hearts.
It got 17 nominations and 24 wins (like Academy Awards in Best Foreign Language Film of the Year).

3.       Gett, the trial of Viviane Amsalem (2014) (here)
”In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce. Only rabbis can legitimate a marriage or its dissolution. But this dissolution is only possible with full consent from the husband, who in the end has more power than the judges. Viviane Amsalem has been applying for divorce for three years. But her husband Elisha will not agree. His cold intransigence, Viviane's determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the judges shape a procedure in which tragedy vies with absurdity, and everything is brought out for judgment, apart from the initial request.”
- Written by Directors' Fortnight
This is the best review I could think of. It perfectly describes the movie, that is about a long hard battle between husband and wife, that despite of having evidences, witnesses still can’t get divorce without the permission of the ‘master of the world’-man/husband. When I watched it for the first time, I must own up, that I was crying. Crying how helpless, lonely and how no one reckon with that woman. Lots of nominations and wins like Best Film in Awards of the Israeli Film Academy.

4.       Tangerine (2015) (here)
“ A working girl tears through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve searching for the pimp who broke her heart.”- imdb
Well, this movie is about two transsexual girls showing their friendship, love to men and life. It might be controversial for some, but for me it is a great niche movie, that was filmed with phone camera and made into a little masterpiece. Some scene are super funny when some are tension-filled. It gained as well some nominations and wins. Definitely worth to watch.

Please let me know if You will watch something from my list, and if you have some proposition.
