Top movies about friendship

Here’s a list of the best movies about friendship I recommend. You can watch them with your friends, family or with your partner.

Below is a list of the top 10 movies about friendship that I recommend.

1. My Neighbor Totoro (1988)

What’s it about? Two girls befriend a monster, a forest spirit.

Why watch the movie?

It’s an animated film from Japan. Unlike the American cartoons we see daily, Asian culture produces much more original and emotional comics, even when the characters don’t speak.

2. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (2008)

What’s it all about?

Two boys, one Jewish and the other German become friends without knowing that they were not allowed to be friends at that time, the SECOND WORLD WAR.

Why watch the film?

I recommend it precisely because of the more sensitive subject matter. The innocent world of children and the strict world of adults. The problem of discrimination creates enemies, not friends.

3.Perfetti Sconosciuti (2016)

What is it about?

Seven friends meet to have dinner together. They think they know everything about each other. But a game in which they read aloud the messages received while at dinner will show something else. From there, it all takes a turn that you’re probably already thinking about, and along the way, things will happen that you didn’t expect.

Why watch the movie?

It’s a film that makes you think. How much do we let our friends know about us? How superficial have relationships become? And how much do we feel our friends accept us for who we are?

4. Life (1999)

What is it all about?

Two people, who are sent to prison for life, become best friends. They try each time to escape, and each time they fail.

Why watch the movie?

I recommend the film to anyone who wants to see a good comedy about friendship and perseverance.

5. Hatchi: a dog’s tale (2009)

What is it about?

It’s the story of the friendship between Hatchi (the dog) and his owner (Richard Gere).

Why watch the film?

It’s a touching story about loyalty. Something you see more often and more clearly in dogs but not cats. I recommend it to the melancholy and those who have had a pet. By the film’s end, you will be crying, and so will those you watch it with.

6. Wishing Stairs (2003)

What is it about?

It’s a horror movie about two girlfriends. One of them dies, and the other feels she will have the same fate.

Why watch the film?

I recommend the film to those who are not scared. Asian movies are the scariest, so I recommend them if you want to see something dangerous about friendship.

7. Cinema Paradiso (1988)

What’s it about?

It’s a movie about a kid who befriends the movie screeners at the cinema and discovers his vocation for the film.

Why watch the film?

It’s an old film, but it captures how life-changing a friendship is.

8. Stand by Me (1986)

What is it about?

Four friends go on a mystery-like journey to find the victim of a murderer. Along the way, we learn more about the four: what they want, how they get along with their family, how they get along with their friends, etc.

Why watch the film?

It’s a film that captures the friendship relationship very well. When others don’t trust you, your friends are always there for you and give you the courage to succeed. And when life is hard, you’ll always have a friend by your side.

9. Good Will Hunting (1997)

What’s it all about?

A young man discovers he has exceptional math skills and is sent to a psychologist to solve his problems interacting with others.

Why watch the film?

Although the friendship relationship is put in the background, I recommend this film because it focuses on an essential issue in any interaction. In such a hectic world, we forget to appreciate the little things that happen to us and fail to appreciate the people around us.

10. Take Care of My Cat (2001)

What’s it all about?

Four girlfriends, each trying to solve their problems, maintain their friendship through a cat. It’s like The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but better.

Why watch the movie?

I recommend it because it’s about keeping the friendship relationship and succeeding simultaneously. It’s a complex issue that everyone has at some point.

11. Midnight Runners (2017)

What’s it all about?

Two boys in the police academy become friends trying to learn from each other the skills in which they do not excel (one in physical skills and the other in physical exercises). But what will make them more united and help them mature is a case they work on together.

Why watch the movie?

It also has comical moments and moments where it talks about taking responsibility, maturity, and the desire to help those around you.

I hope you like my suggestions.

I wish you a pleasant viewing with your friends!
