Julie delpy dating
is his finest work—drenched in hues of passion, throbbing with unspoken desires, while a mix of '60s pop and an orchestral score fill in the blanks between a man and woman (Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung) whose spouses are having an affair with each other.
It's a cruel reminder that love, no matter how strong, can't work without timing. We know the ship eventually sinks (that's certainly no spoiler) so maybe it's our fault for getting so attached to Jack and Rose's inevitably doomed love story, but it's hard not to when they're dancing and nude-sketching and having steamy hand-on-fogged-window sex in a car.
But unlike the alarming lack of spark between Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson (I blame the former), the twisted BDSM romance between this Grey and his secretary Lee (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is far sexier and surprisingly heartfelt (especially considering both parties are very down with the sadomasochism).
Maybe this isn't your kink, but it's certainly theirs—who's to say that's not romance?
Sorry to keep bogging you down with these not-so-happily-ever-after movies, but at least Blue Valentine doesn't keep up a façade that things end well for Dean (Ryan Gosling) and Cindy (Michelle Williams).
Knowing their eventual end makes the flashbacks to their happier days even more devastating, and yes, heart-wrenchingly romantic. This is the life of a Romantic poet (John Keats, as portrayed by Ben Whishaw), through the lens of a romantic filmmaker (Jane Campion, no stranger to period pieces), and the result is lush and melancholic.
It's too early to call the most romantic movie of this year (though there's plenty on the way, from the live-action Beauty and the Beast to the Fifty Shades sequel and festival favorite Call Me By Your Name).
After what seems like a mere one-night stand, Russell and Glen spend a passionate weekend together—filled with drugs, sex, and heated arguments.
Their relationship may come with an expiration date (Glen plans to move to America) but Haigh doesn't dismiss the idea that great love can be a brief one.
But there's never any question that the love between them is real—interpret that ending however you will—and that's why Amour makes this list.
Andrew Haigh's gay romantic drama plays out like a crystallized memory of a sweet but short-lived affair, one you remember fondly years later.
