      Love yourself better than many people love you - after watching "Gloria"

      First Wellness Day of 2021

      I was watching the drama Gloria (Silver Bear at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival 2013) while reviewing my Value Framework Coaching course.

      Gloria hummed to the rhythm of the speakers while driving, boldly breaking the pitch and out of tune; I freely switched between lessons and movie clips, and I...

      [Last Film I Watched] Gloria (2013) 7.8/10

      Rightly tapping into the cliché of middle-age solitude, GLORIA, the up-and-coming Chilean filmmaker Sebastián Lelio's Golden Bear contender (rightfully won its leading actress Paulina García a coveted BEST ACTRSS gong), is a brutally honest take on our titular heroine's stagnated status quo and her inexorable endeavor to break it.

      A petit bourgeois divorcée, Gloria (García) is in...

      The film isn't inspirational feminism, just a personal story of a mature, tough woman fighting life.

      The story of a middle-aged woman's single life Hunting for love

      In addition to her daily work, Gloria's middle-aged life is hanging around the same bar and dancing with different men every day. When she returns home, she is faced with endless silence and emptiness. The relationship with her daughter and son is limited to daily visits, and her grandson does not allow her to hug her. She went to her daughter's yoga class and found out that her daughter had a boyfriend. During one...

      Aging is a scarier thing than death

      Aging is a scarier thing than death. What you will face is ugliness, loneliness, vulnerability, sensitivity, helplessness, disease, weakness. More separations, and their own separations. Gloria is a lucky old woman who immerses herself in twilight romances, attends old age parties, has a good sex life, reminisces fondly with her ex-husband, takes care of her son and grandson, and is as crazy as she was when she was young after a hangover on the beach . But behind all these joys, there is a...

      between past and present

      The difference between Westerners' attitudes towards life and Easterners' attitudes is obvious in this film. When they fall in love at such an age, they are not bound by age, but by the personality defects of the parties themselves. Rudolph is an unscrupulous coward, he longs for a new life, but does not have the courage to cut off the previous life. It's not that easy to cut off, then you'll live your old days. Rudolph chooses to wander between the past and the present, and the end result...

      I don't know why I think of "Auntie's Postmodern Life", but Auntie is burying the helplessness of reality in the nonsense, and G is full of middle-aged confusion. Is it love or passion that middle-aged women living alone are pursuing? village. Three and a...

      At first glance, it is bland, but after careful consideration, it is amazing. How much courage do you have to take pictures of old women's love? Like Neruda's poetry, it burns the nerves all the time. Admire the frankness of the film, not only "from poetry and poetry to philosophy of life", but also the naked body, saggy breasts and aging face. Those lusts like wolves and tigers and leopards are afraid that the young people will blush. The one-man show of the newly-appointed Berlin actress is...

      8.4. It hurts in my heart. The tangle of human nature, the weakness of love and not love, ugly lies and despicable desires. Sometimes moving, sometimes desolate, sometimes warm songs. I sang at the beginning and sang at the end, but my mood was very different. I burst into tears when I saw it at the end. I hope that when I get to that age, I will not be so lonely, seeking a romantic encounter in loneliness, reluctant to be separated from my children, and I hope to stay with the person I love...

    Evaluation action

    The Chilean film, instead of emphasizing the particular context of the country's history and politics, flatly tells a story of universal significance. This is not just a love, it is more about the triviality, helplessness, hope and loss, persistence and abandonment of everyone in life. Gloria lacks the most basic effective communication with her son and daughter, just because blood keeps each other connected, but they all seem to be...
