My top ten love stories (updated)

UPDATES

I forgot these two movies when I did the list yesterday.

They should be in the middle of the list.

The Age of Innocence (1993)


This movie made me realised for the first time that I like love stories.

In the Mood for Love (2000)


Maggie and Tony in this movie remind me of my Ma and Pa.


ORIGINAL POST

I don't feel like writing about politics today.

Really tired of it.

Today I just want to have some fun posting about movies for a change.

So, those among you all who are hardcore political junkies shouldn't read beyond this line, okay.

Well, my favorite movies are mostly love stories.

The following are my top ten love stories at the movies,

10. Romeo and Juliet (1968)



Simply the best Romeo and Juliet movie ever made.

9. Love Story (1970)



Probably the best American love story ever made.

8. Cyrano de Bergerac (1990)


Beautifully done and appropriately French.

7. Breakfast at Tiffany (1961)



It's not exactly a love story but there's Audrey Hepburn and bits about love.

6. Tous les Matins du Monde (1991)


Probably the most painful love story ever made into a movie.

5. Lust Caution (2007)


Best adaptation of a tragic love story from a book.

4. Notting Hill (1999)



I like simplistic romantic comedy too, and Notting Hill is my favorite of the genre.


3. July Rhapsody (2002)



A different kind of love story. Anita Mui's last movie.

2. Love Letter (1995)



A most poignant love story.


1. Blue (2001)


Trailer not available on Youtube. But you can find the full movie there. It reminds me of my first love....but I'm not a lesbian, okay.

  1. My favourite love story is "Painted Skin" and am waiting for "Bie Wen" (Don't Ask) which is yet-to-be made but I like the stellar cast.

    2. You ni pun... Takkan lau Annie nak cakap yes. What would the readers think about her if she'd answered yes. Try your luck lah, show who you really are and email her. But but, first, you kena watch that movie number 3 and be romantic as hell. Hehehe...

  4. Annie,
    Dissappointed that 'When Harry met Sally' didn't make it to your top 10 list.
    Notting Hill was so predictable like any Hindi film!

  6. Annie,

    We have seen memorable stories in English, Hindi, Korean, Mandarain, etc.

    I haven't seen anything memorable originate from here.

    I heard there are a lot of restriction by Finas, not about the love scenes but film makers cannot touch subject of this and that.....

    This made film makers difficult to make good film.

    Or is it because we are lacking in creativity?

    Am I touching politics here?

    Just curious that's all.

    1. Lack of tolerance for creativity. No.

  7. "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."
    - The Chinese Sage Lao Tzu

    Strength to do what is right, and the courage to sacrifice oneself for the sake of others.

  8. watch the (7 psychopath)....it is a love story...but, the other kind of a love story and not a guy liking a girl or the girl there liking a guy here kind of a love story.

  10. One of my all-time favourites is the 1939 American epic-historical-romance film adapted from Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel "Gone With The Wind " starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh.
