I come to you all asking for your recommandations regarding a specific genre of media I adore and do not get enough of, especially nowadays.
I talking about gentle stories, which is a term I stole from : [this movie list](Gentle Cinema, a list of films by Doug Dillaman • Letterboxd . )
It defines a gentle movie as :
Pleasant people doing pleasant things and there’s not much drama and you just kind of feel lovely about the world.
I really, trulu loves those kind of experience. I find that I acutally have very little tolerance nowadays for stories with “evil” people in it, like Games of Thrones, even though I loved it, I don’t think I would still enjoy it nowadays. I find that slower, tender stories are the one I really enjoy and that sticks with me longer .
So ! Do you know any movie, shows, video games, boardgames, role-playing games, that fills this criteria ?
My own recommendations :
- I just finished playing the video game Wide Ocean, Big Jacket; and that motivated me to do this thread. A very lovely game about two adults and two newly teenagers going camping .
- We watched last night Patterson, or the first half of it, and it was very sweet (hopefully, nothing goes horribly wrong in the second half. A movie about a couple, one artist and one bus driver writing poems.
- Studio Ghibli is probably what got me into this kind of movie, and I won’t quote them all, but I still have to mention My neighbour Totoro and Kiki’s delivery service; my two favorite.
- Jane the virgin was really good soap opera, and a love stories to telenovella. I’m absolutly not familiar with those kind of tv shows, but it still made me feel like it was aimed at me in some weird way. It is the ridiculous story of a girl who want to stay a virgin until her wedding but gets artificially inseminated but her boss’ sister. Very funny, sweet and lovely.
