Valentine's Day Films and Music, Part II


 Video cover of When Harry Met SallyTwo more fabulous romantic films :

 

When Harry Met Sally (1989) The film raises and addresses the question of whether men and women can be just friends.  It has inspired several relational concepts, such as “high maintenance,” and has made it easier for all of us to get our salad dressing on the side!

 

Love Actually (2003) Although set during Christmas, this film is both romantic and hilarious all year round.  A series of vignettes of different aspects of love as shown through ten people whose lives and interests intersect.  It is also cleverly written and portrayed.

 

We also have the music soundtracks for both films! 



Valentine's Day Films and Music


book jacket

 

With Valentine’s Day coming up, why not cuddle up on the sofa and watch a romantic film?

 

Here are some suggestions for the warm at heart…(release dates in parentheses).

 

Valentine’s Day (2010) A romantic film with all the heart-warming and heart-wrenching events taking place in one day! We also have the sound recording to the motion picture.

 

He’s Just Not That into You (2009) A film based on the book that was inspired by a line of dialogue in Sex and the City. We have both the sound recording and the BookCD!

 

Paris, Je T’Aime (2006) Eighteen short films depicting different types of love that take place in 18 of the 20 arrondissements in Paris.  The film is embellished with gorgeous, scenic transitions between shorts, and is among my favorites! 

 

You’ve Got Mail (1998) Two romantics who correspond via email are unaware that their sweetheart is the same person for whom they feel disdain. This film is a remake of a previous film, The Shop Around the Corner (1940), with James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, and updated to reflect current technology and society.

 

Casablanca (1942) An all-time favorite that ranks 3rd in the AFI’s top 100 American Film picks with Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid.
