The famous "chapter four" scene from the 1996 French-Italian film version of Goethe's 1809 physical chemistry based novella Elective Affinities.
In publications, films are segments of events or processes of time, tending to be human related, presented in the form of motion pictures or moving images shown accompanied by corresponding recorded sound.

Ninotchka | 1939
See main: It’s a Chemical Reaction, That’s All
In 1939, in the film Ninotchka (Ѻ), by Hungarian writer Melchior Lengyel (1880-1974) (Ѻ), is centered around the Russian scientific ideology of love, as professed by Swedish-born American actress Greta Garbo, as compared to the American romantic model of love, embodied by Melvyn Douglas, the former telling the latter:

Love is a romantic designation for a most ordinary biological—or, shall we say, chemical—process … a lot of nonsense is talked and written about it.”

In 2018, Gill wrote and directed the film The Laws of Thermodynamics (Las leyes de la termodinámica), an English-subtitled Spanish film, set in Barcelona, filmed in a seven-week shoot (Ѻ) starting in 4 Oct 2016, purporting to be about the laws of thermodynamics and physics generally applied to explain relationships (see: relationship physics), specifically between actor Vito Sanz, playing the role of an astrophysics graduate student, and actress Berta Vazquez, playing the role of a model turned actress

An avid collector of films wherein “chemical” scenes are employed is American chemist Mark Griep, who, along with his wife, since 2001, have researched into and watched some 400+ chemistry-infused films. Griep uses many 3-min “chemical” scenes, in his classroom, to connect to material being taught; he also bundles clips for high school and college students. [1]

In 2009, Griep, together with Marjorie Mikasen, published ReAction! Chemistry in the Movies, wherein the present 110 films in outline, in respect the chemistry used. [2]
