With Valentine’s Day on the way, love is firmly in the air. From tear-jerkers to rom-coms and Disney classics, MV Head Office have chosen their favourite romantic films of all time.

 

My Blueberry Nights

My Blueberry Nights

I love this film so much. It has Norah Jones (jazz musician & singer) in it, and in the last scene she’s fallen asleep on the café’s bar with cream from a blueberry pie on her lips. The owner and love-of-her-life-but-they-don’t-know-it-yet (Jude Law’s character) leans in and kisses her from across the bar. The End. Magic.

You’ve Got Mail

You’ve Got Mail

The technology is so dated now, but the story of You’ve Got Mail is timeless. It’s got brilliant humour, plus all the characters – side-characters included – have so much to them and all are integral. It’s really heart-warming and I can watch it over and over without ever getting bored.

Lost In Translation

Lost In Translation

Although it’s not technically a love story, Lost In Translation always makes me cry my eyes out. Ageing actor, Bob Harris (Bill Murray), and conflicted newlywed, Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), meet in Tokyo as they fumble their way through their respective lives – one in a loveless marriage, the other in the midst of divorce. It’s the things that aren’t said or acted on that makes the unlikely bond they form, and their meeting of minds, all the more poignant.

The Notebook

The Notebook

It’s just got to be The Notebook. I’m a sucker for a real love story and feel (as I’m sure all girls do) that there really are guys like Noah (Ryan Gosling) out there – you’ve just got to kiss a few ‘Lon Hammonds’ first… As with anything written by Nicholas Sparks, it’s a really poignant story that works so well on the big screen. It helps that Ryan Gosling is in it, of course…

The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid

There’s just something about this film. I think it’s partly the nostalgic sense of childhood, but also that Eric falls in love with Ariel because he can see good in her (as well as the fact that she is gorgeous!). Then the relatable theme of love for your family vs the pull of your true love, and the sacrifice of moving away to follow her heart. I also just love the “Kiss The Girl” song – so cute!
