Film therapy

Are there any movies you watch when you're feeling anxious or depressed? If so, what are they, and what about them calms you down and/or lifts your spirits?

  • We love "My Neighbor Totoro". It's an animated Japanese film with a lovely little story of two sisters who move to a new house out in the country and meet a 'magical' bunny like creature called a 'Totoro". The perfect antidote to stress! Another anime favorite is "Kiki's Delivery Service" about a girl who reaches an age to be independent and she just happens to be a 'witch', like her Mom (not an evil Western style witch, but more of a 'healer'). She has great adventures as she finds a place to live and a way to earn money (she can 'deliver' things because she flies on her broom). She also has a talking cat and meets a young boy and an older girl who becomes a friends.
  • No, I think about song lyrics and deep truths. And, I trade a spirit of heaviness for a spirit of praise. ♫♫ Rise, rise, people of love rise, people of love rise , Give yourself away ♫♫ - Robbie Seay
  • i watch movies like "the book of stars" when i feel lost. independant films seem to bring out the best in me when im feeling weird, etc. feeling like i can relate to others helps me alot. what lifts my spirits is knowing that if they can live with what hurt them the most than so can i, its a good motivater, not that i need much but it helps

  • Есть такие ...

  • Нет, скорее нету.. Но при поршивом настроение, Часто вижу "свою" ситуацию на экране. Последний пример был в докторе Хаусе :) 6 сезон, 21 серия, 42 минута :)))) А еще, что то похожие было в Симпсонах, тоже в 21 сезоне :) Тряпашный стал, до не узноваймости

  •  garden state, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, across the universe, and wristcutters, a love story...i don't know why, but these movies just make me feel at peace with the world for even a few minutes, or something, i think it's because i identify with them, and sometimes they make me sad, but i think that's all apart of it. ya know?
