Inspiring Movies

My mother bought a smart TV which is directly connected to internet and Netflix and I’ve been addicted. My life has been challenging lately and watching inspiring movies has been essencial to keep me on track (or at least not freaking out).

Here are some wonderful movies I watched recently and inspired me greatly:

1. The Dark Matter of Love

The Dark Matter of Love Trailer from The Dark Matter of Love on Vimeo.

This is a beautiful mvie about adoption. An american family of three decides to adopt three russian children — an 11 years old girl and two 3-years old twins. The family didn’t speak any Russian and the children didn’t speak any English, but with the help of a team of psychologists and a lot of love and perseverance (and some dark matter we can’t yet decipher), they were able to integrate perfectly.

2. Moving Art, by Louie Schwartzberg

Louie Shwartzberger is a photographer specialized in time-lapse and high speed shooting, and produces beautiful movies about nature. They’re short — 15, 25 minutes — but very inspiring.

“We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye”.

I’ve watched all his movies available on Netflix: Flowers, Deserts, Mountains and Oceans. Now, he’s shooting a another one about Fungi.

3. Particle Fever

More than 10 thousand scientists and techinician from more than a hundred countries gather to fulfill a project that can change Physics  and the way we see life and matter. This movie tells the story of Cern, the Large Hadron Collider, a huge Scientific move that enchants every one who loves knowledge. A must watch!

4. Happy

Happy – A Documentary Trailer from Wadi Rum Films on Vimeo.

It’s hard to define happiness, but this documentary gives us a lot of hints. I loved watching it and it’s definitely very inspirational. Very famous too.

5. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

A movie about how diet can heal — or kill. Everyone interested about green juices, healthy living and diet should watch.

6. Space Dive


Do you remember the guy who jumped from Space some time ago? This movie tells his story. His name is Felix Baumgartner and he’s actually the second man who jumped from space and survived. Another skydiver tried many years ago and died because of a tecnical flaw. With beautiful images, the movie is a little scary in same moments, because so much can go wrong in such a mission, and when it does, even us, watching it from far away, can really get anxious.

7. TED Lectures

TED has many movies on Netflix, in which they gather lectures about specific subjects, like Love, Compassion, Life’s Struggles and so on. I love TED and always learn so much only by watching. I’ve also recently became one of their volunteer Translators (English and French to Portuguese) and I’m very proud of myself 🙂

I hope you can enjoy these movies too.
