The female image presented in the Mediterranean Cinema, socially and culturally, offers an alternative to the mainstream Hollywood simulation presentations. In this article the presentation of Mediteranean women in Fellini's Amarcord, the mother and daughter of Almadovar's, the widowed women in Crete of Zorba and women dancing between Madonna and “the prostitute” will be discussed. The movies examine political evolutions of the countries through man-woman relationships. Therefore, by the Mediterranean cinema, the discussion of fatness, insanity, prostitution, sacrificial motherhood and widowhood will be discussed parallelly with the ideological adventure of the Mediterranean woman in history.
