Almost every Hollywood film revolves around romance. It’s a manifestation of a society that regards women’s interests as frivolous while men’s interests are regarded as art, and romance films are mockingly referred to as chick flicks. The cinema has produced some of its most gorgeous and idealistic films due to romantic longing. Here is one of the most romantic movies.

Top 5 Romantic Films That Made History

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

This is a Charlie Kaufman-style romantic comedy. It draws its title from a poem by Alexander Pope written in 1717. It depicts the aspect of love that most films ignore – disputes, boredom, tiresome habits that drive couples apart, and the awful, stilted moments surrounding a break-up. At first glance, the film’s notion of a couple being able to delete each other after a terrible break-up to live on in blissful ignorance appears to be a dismal view of love. However, as Joel’s memories of Clementine are deliberately sought out and zapped, chinks of light begin to shine. Kaufman’s second partnership with Michel Gondry was Eternal Sunshine. The smart French director was an ideal match for Kaufman’s freewheeling writing, which immerses us in Joel’s memories as they are peeled away.

When Harry Met Sally

How often do you see romantic films when a pair meets across a crowded room and instantly knows they’re destined to be together? “When Harry Met Sally” is refreshing because it doesn’t go to either of these extremes; instead, it simply proposes that men and women can be friends first and then develop a sexual relationship over time. They are slightly annoying to one other but they are amicably separated, meeting only a few times over the years before forming a close friendship. They have such natural chemistry with one another that the love they develop is entirely organic.

In The Mood For Love

This is a romantic comedy about two henpecked succeeding neighbors who fall in love. Wong Kar-wai takes his time shooting a film, going without a traditional script and waiting to see where the mood takes him. As a result, his actors rarely have access to the larger picture. The beautiful colors on the screen are softened with nostalgia and ripened by pleasure, as represented by Christopher Doyle, Wong’s frequent cinematographer. It’s an unconventional love story primarily recognized as the director’s best work. It’s also as well-made as you’d expect from a Wong production.

Casablanca

Most wartime film romances have an unspoken tremor: the film must handle the feelings of lovers separated by war. Casablanca epitomizes movie romance in part because it is so far from reality. It received the Academy Award for Best Picture and seemed to bring history to life because it premiered shortly after the Allies had taken control of the actual Casablanca. Another element at work crucial to romance and the period of censorship in the movies is that want might be most intense when it cannot be fulfilled. It’s not simply a question of whether they’ll survive; it’s also a question of whether love can transcend the different lives.

Secretary

Secretary is a film about people meeting each other because they have unique requirements. Their wishes may be individual, but their fantasy is universal: they want someone who accepts them for who they are, who can meet their needs, and with whom they can share happiness. Not everyone loves one other in the same way, and not everyone is genuinely interested in completely embracing a sexual kink lifestyle. Secretary is a rare love story that acknowledges that everyone has different requirements and delivers a charming story that shows there is someone out there for everyone.
