When watching any movie, a person involuntarily experiences any emotions. A man laughs from a film made in a comedy genre, from a drama he cries and worries, psychological thrillers make people think and be afraid of what is happening. But there are films in which the genre fades into the background, and the first place is taken by the feeling of spirituality, which gives the cinema to its viewer. After watching these films, you get inspired and feel like you can move mountains or just do something good. For those who have not seen these wonderful films, we strongly recommend correcting this omission, and those who have had the pleasure to contemplate them will certainly want to watch these films again themselves!
Knockin 'on Heaven
The story of two terminally ill comrades who go all out, if you read only the description of the film, may seem not at all life-affirming. But everything was filmed, played and presented so well that after watching you start to appreciate every moment of your life. And I also want to go to the sea.
And in my soul I dance
The heroes of this film are people in wheelchairs. But they have more optimism than many healthy people. Chained by cerebral palsy, the guys do not lose heart and try to live in this world fully: to rejoice, do stupid things, protect the weak, dance and joke.
This film directed by Robert Zemeckis is a worldwide phenomenon of 1994, which even now, 20 years later, I want to watch again and again. Even when you know by heart what the heroes will say, with each viewing you discover something new for yourself. Apparently, this is real cinema - simple, clear and brilliant.
Untouchable (1 + 1)
The directors and actors of this film managed to create a life-affirming, witty, funny and charming picture. And they didn't go too far with proportions - the mixture of drama and comedy in the story of two friends, unlike white and black, turned out to be almost perfect.
The Incredible Life of Walter Mitty
This picture about the adventures of an office loser seems to be shouting from the screen “Don't be like everyone else!”, “Don't be afraid!”, “Change the world!”. Teenage enthusiasm was clearly demonstrated to us by the 48-year-old Hollywood comedian with experience Ben Stiller, who, in theory, should have been tired of all this for a long time. But the wrong one was attacked.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The director-wizard Michel Gondry in his film very clearly and in a manner characteristic only to him showed that in life you cannot just press the delete button like on a keyboard. In this he was helped by an amazing cast, and especially Jim Carrey.
Little Miss Joy
Perhaps the best film about the fact that the result is not important, but the process itself is important. Because if you, as the heroine of the film, suddenly conceived of becoming "Little Miss Happiness", and the whole motley family, consisting of a failed father, an impulsive mother, a gay uncle, a brother who made a vow of silence, and a drug addict grandfather, is going to help you , then it remains only to enjoy the process.
The boy Trevor came up with his own theory of changing the world, the essence of which is simple to the point of disgrace: I will help you, and you will help three others. It is not hard to guess that the theory will crash with a crash on the rocks of the world's cruelty, and we will almost lose faith in humanity ... But if the stars are lit, then someone needs it.
Breakfast at Tiffany's
The quintessence of the charm and female magnetism of Audrey Hepburn is the main advantage of this picture, shot back in 61, but still looks breathless. Dialogues, beautiful views of New York, a small apartment, an unnamed lazy cat and, of course, "Moon River" create a mood when you want to live and love.
Into the wild
Landscapes of incredible beauty, unbridled freedom and absolute detachment. A film that makes it possible, at least for a while, to get away from empty problems and unnecessary rules of society, to feel at one with nature and simply to discard everything. All this thanks to the cool directorial work of Sean Penn and the amazing acting.
In order for her to really like and sink into the soul, you need to turn off the internal critic, close your eyes to some unrealistic plot and learn to hear. Because the main role in this film is played by music.
Always say "yes"
The average manager, played by actor Jim Carrey, is deeply depressed. And in order to somehow cope with it, he decides to always say "yes" and agree to any proposals. So, in an instant, his life turns into a crazy adventure, in which it would be useful for each of us to be.
Life is Beautiful
A very bright and kind movie about a family from Italy, where a father and a son of Jewish nationality were sent to a concentration camp during World War II. In the camp, the father told his son that everything that was happening around was a very big game for a prize in a real tank, which would go to the boy who could not be seen by the guards. Despite the hardships of life, the family was close-knit and never lost faith in the best.
The king speaks!
The film, which won four Oscars, does more than teach public speaking - the voice is only an outward manifestation of a person. The story of King George VI is about believing in yourself and that everyone deserves to be heard.
Director Tim Burton made a fairy tale film, a fantasy film, but not for us to watch, be touched and forgotten. The story of the inventor Edward Bloom is a hint that everyone sees their reality differently. Someone, looking at the night sky, will see just the sky, and someone will see the bottomless immense world of stars and universes. And, most likely, this second one is a large fish.
Director Steven Spielberg and actor Tom Hanks managed to create a film that is not easy to find a genre for. Somewhere a comedy, somewhere a melodrama, somewhere a parable. A film about the ability to follow your dreams. A film about the worthlessness of bureaucratic machines. And a film about friendship, which has a place even in the airport terminal flooded with people in a hurry.
The Pursuit of Happyness
A film based on a true story, where Will Smith and his son took part in the filming. They show a seemingly hopeless situation, where the love of a father for his son changes the whole life and the desire for happiness does not allow the heroes to break down.
Until I played in the box
A gorgeous movie with an excellent cast - Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman simply "sang" together and thereby only enhanced the viewing experience. There is not a single empty dialogue or frame in this film, all the minutes are filled competently and with feeling. And the conversations of the heroes about the eternal in old age do not bother, but rather push them to the idea that they need to live not tomorrow or in a week, but now.
Are social stereotypes pushing you into frames? The story of this young boy will tell you that you should not be so afraid of them, but rather do what you want.
The story of 18-year-old Jamil, an orphan from Mumbai, who gets a chance to participate in the game "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Being one step away from winning, Jamil unexpectedly ends up in the police station and then tells the difficult story of his life.
The Shawshank Redemption
A drama based on the book by Stephen King, which took 1st place in the list of 250 best films according to IMDb and the Kinopoisk website. And not casual. A motivating film that proves that a person is capable of much only when and in difficult situations he remains a person.
A drama based on real events about unprecedented human resilience and courage. Are you in a desperate situation? Seems like there's no way out? He is always there. Even if you are crushed by a huge boulder in the desert.
And this film was shot by Clint Eastwood and he himself played the main role of a grumpy old man, who in fact is still as kind and loyal as he was before his wife's death.
Silver Linings Playbook
This film is called in the original, and, perhaps, this best describes the impression of watching it. But a very interesting, memorable, touching story about people who are going through difficult periods of their lives does not even give hope, but confidence - everything can be changed.
An undeniably life-affirming picture of the engineer Ben, who embarks on an extraordinary journey to atone for the fatal act of his life. On his way, he meets seven strangers with different destinies and one amazing girl. His merciful actions are capable of changing a lot.
We always see only the result of the work that is invested in the creation of films, but we can almost never see how they are made. That is why we want to open the veil of secrecy and show you the special magic of cinema that takes place on the set during the creation of film masterpieces! You may even need soda and popcorn.

The first steps in animation were made over 100 years ago. During this time, animated characters have shown themselves to be excellent companions for a child. They opened him new information about the world around him, suggested how to learn how to make the right decisions, how to be friends and not be afraid of mistakes. And if earlier cartoons attracted only children, now everything has changed: adults also watch them with pleasure. After all, this is a great reason to get together with the whole family and escape from worries for at least a couple of hours.
We at Bemorepanda love cartoons very much and think that sometimes cartoons can “talk” to a child better than any adult. See for yourself.

The Disney studio employs not only funny, but also resourceful people who are always not averse to joking. One of their favorite tricks is to complement their cartoons with small references to each other.
But they do it so imperceptibly that untrained viewers often do not see these funny details. And this is not surprising. Some chips flicker in the frame so quickly that it is worth blinking at this moment - and now you have already missed everything.
