Woman. Would the world still be a world without women? No. Because everything revolves around women, around this fragile being, without much physical strength, but with a lot of spiritual strength, creative strength, dominating strength and the strength to make the world more colourful. Woman, a word that expresses love, gentleness and sincerity, sensitivity, fragility, strength, smiles, tears, hope, compassion, understanding, adaptation, patience, humour, sadness, stubbornness, submission, attention, generosity. Woman- mother, daughter, wife, grandmother, sister, lover, friend. How many tasks are attributed to woman and how rich she can be, just by the mere fact that she exists. This is why woman is praised by all the world’s great artists: woman is found in the thoughts of poets, woman is the muse of painters, photographers, woman is the main heroine of many film directors, and not only.
Having said that, I come with some film recommendations where the woman is in the foreground, the strong woman, the woman in all her aspects.Here, then, are five films dedicated to you, the woman.
