For a long time, the notion of good and evil was intrinsic to melodrama, which ended up causing it to be seen as an alienating matrix for already giving the viewer a point of view to be followed, that of the hero and, at the same time, a point of view to b e denied, that of the villain. However, it is necessary to investigate the possibilities of a melodrama that is not rooted in representing morals to be followed, but morals to be reflected by the viewers themselves. In the first moment, this article presen ts a study about the birth of the melodrama. The connection between victim and oppressor and the dichotomy that exists in the elemental paradigm of the melodrama also will be purpoused. Lastly, it will be investigated the possibillity of criating melodrama that are not fundamented in the judeo -christian culture; for that, it will be made a study of the movie Ali: Fear eats the soul and The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant.
