Not as sad and gloomy as many other romance films, Breathe gives viewers a brighter view on paralyzed people – an optimistic and hopeful spirit of true love. During nearly 2 hours of the movie, you will be completely conquered and touched by the attention and sincere love that Diana, a lovely lady, gives to her husband Robin, a passionate guy who suddenly became paralyzed and had to lie still in a hospital bed.
Breathe portrays a moving journey, say ing that by the age of 30, what we need to care about is just work and family. Despite the fact that society had suggested that Diana had better choices, it turned out that the life of a woman in her 30s was to look after the person she loved. That is more than enough and happy for her.
How To Be Single (2017)
If you are still single or have been single, then do not ignore ‘How To Be Single’. Perhaps right from the name, the film has hit the feelings of women: how to live a free life, how to be yourself, pursue what you really want and have no regrets. Offering many meaningful lessons about life, the film does not make viewers feel like being taught or something, as the story of modern singles it portrays is so real.
Each girl in the film represents a different type of person: a girl who does not know what she really wants in a relationship and plunges into different guy after breaking up; a girl with a massive body, who understands what she wants, what she does and enjoys life to the fullest; a woman who is afraid of marriage, being a workaholic and always fears relationships; and a girl that gets obsessive about the standards she wants in her future love partner. It is these diverse colors in the movie that bring humor, affection, but also the humanity of the true meaning of being single.
