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).
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.
