“Summertime and the living is easy…” Every year we look forward to this wonderful time — bright days, starry nights, warm weather, and, of course, vacations!

However, what are those who work all summer to do? Be sad and miserable, looking at happy colleagues’ faces on Facebook? No, of course! You should find other sources of inspiration to keep your work productive.

We would like to help you with this difficult task: below, we offer 10 films about overcoming your obstacles and conquering new peaks. So, let’s go!

The conquest of any vertex is always difficult. And what can we say about the highest peak on the Earth?

You should see the movie.

Zootopia

This cartoon is added to our selection consciously: great graphics, humor, a detective story… But the most important aspect of the cartoon is the idea that nothing is impossible. And even a small rabbit can become a good COP!

So, how is our selection for you? “There are films about people with a difficult fate in your selection,” you say. But we want to add, “These films all have the theme that all difficulties can be overcome”. Even working all summer J And if Hugh Glass in “The Revenant” could do it, can’t we?
