10 movies that have a philosophical air



Philosophy is everywhere and the art world reinforces this assertion by bringing debates to reflection, even seeking to unravel the reasons and the whys of the mysterious paths of human existence. This gaze is very broad, in the concept of understanding the world and what it contains. Seeking to reflect on this topic, we separate below some films that have interesting philosophical cuts:

The Eternals

In the plot, we meet an intergalactic group called the Eternals, who are destined for the planets to extract information and then obey orders from the celestials (something like their bosses). Thus, a group lands on earth long before Christ and thus sees the evolution of the human race and with the mission of not getting involved in any war, disaster or any act that may directly interfere in the outcome of a conflict. At some point, they are ordered to reactivate a sleeping Celestial in the depths of planet Earth.

Have fun watching:

The substitute teacher

The lack of balance that breaks the fundamental meanings of our existence. Presented at the Venice Film Festival in 2018, the curious feature film directed by Frenchman Sébastien Marnier is an inciting clip from the point of view of teachers and students of a traditional French school. A whole envelope of ways of thinking and actions of a group of cdfs students who use poetically based reasons to justify their actions and their consequences, are put on canvas in a metaphorical way ranging from quotes from philosophers to a photograph and a soundtrack that hit the mark. It’s not an easy film to digest, and its plot hides its climaxes, leaving the viewer to say the least surprised at what happens during the 105 minutes of screening.

accidental passenger

The fine lines between reason and hope. Available in the Netflix catalog, Accidental Passenger is a film full of doors to open in choices that start from a very distant hypothesis (a little surprise never seen by anyone after the takeoff of a spaceship that goes to Mars) but ends by being transformed into a great game of almost philosophical arguments where one can draw parallels with existential questions, philosophers and thinkers of all times. The film is directed by Brazilian Joe Penna in his second feature and has an excellent cast.


In the plot, we meet Doctor Romeo (Adrian Titieni), a middle-aged man who lives with his wife Magda (Lia Bugnar) and their daughter Eliza (Maria-Victoria Dragus) in a middle-class neighborhood of a Romanian city. . Romeo has a lover, Sandra (Malina Manovici), for whom he has immense affection. When his daughter Eliza is abused on the way to school and it prevents her from passing an important exam in time for her future, Romeo will have to walk a path where a fine line separates the positions of ethics and moral.

Hannah Arendt

At a time when original thinkers didn’t need a degree to teach, we met Jewish-German political philosopher Hannah Arendt, who worked as a journalist and university professor in addition to publishing important works on political philosophy. Always surrounded by books and texts that contributed to his work, we are introduced to friends (including some famous thinkers) and to a whole personal problem caused by his thought that resulted in the transformation of a judgment into a philosophical question.


You have to know how to live… British adaptation of a film called Viver by the brilliant Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, Living is an exciting drama that shows us the end of a path in a universe of possibilities that open up, when other the senses are brought back to life, in the trajectory of a bureaucrat who seeks to serve as an example, with no time for anger or regret. South African filmmaker Oliver Hermanus manages to achieve his career masterpiece, moving audiences in 102 unforgettable minutes of screening. The performances of Bill Nighy and Aimee Lou Wood (Aimee from Sex Education) are prodigious!

Welcome, Violet!

To tell a story, do you have to detach yourself from reality and embark on fiction? Starting from a very broad analysis of the always particular universe of the creative process, Bem-Vinda, Violeta! , inspired by the novel ‘Cordilheira’ by Brazilian writer Daniel Galera, is a film that navigates the emotional turmoil of a protagonist who finds herself in crisis through the character she creates for her new book. Fernando Fraiha, one of the directors of the famous program Choque de Cultura, returns to directing a feature film, after the great La Vingança (2016), in this film which is a pure reflection on the senses of human existence.

Lost on Mars

Solitude is the luck of all exceptional minds. The Martian film marks the return of the famed Alien creator, the eighth passenger behind the camera. Based on the work of Andy Weir, the feature film estimated at more than 100 million dollars, is an adventure with accents of suspense and drama that promises to please film lovers in service. Playing with several emotional variables, practically an X-ray of the protagonist is established, the film grows exactly in reasoning arguments for making survival decisions. A little cinematic masterpiece from this movie legend named Ridley Scott.

A pigeon resting on a branch ponders existence

Winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, A Pigeon Perched on a Branch Reflecting on Existence is one of the most unusual films of recent times, showing a certain derision in relation to the daily situations of humanity , which ends up tending the scenario towards the tragicomic. . At first glance, the film may be completely incomprehensible, bordering on madness, but when the dull noise of the unusual subsides, we begin to perceive an interesting logic contained in the strange situations in which we find ourselves. characters.

In the curious story, we follow two friends walking aimlessly down an abandoned road. With only a cart full of trinkets, reasoned reflections on society, dreams, life and destiny, the duo race against time because they don’t know where this path will lead them. Thus, the audience is involved in the reasoning from the experience of both, a fact that makes them reflect on their own existence on the planet.
