10 romantic scenes for Valentine's Day

By Sati. Thursday, February 14, 2013 , ,

On the occasion of Valentine's Day I decided to share 10 romantic scenes that came to my mind. Some of those are just the scenes where the characters expressed their love for each other with gestures and the look in their eyes. Others include beautiful quotes that I'll remember forever. Though the film that for me showed the strength of love the most - Brokeback Mountain - is not included, the films from which those scenes come from did a great job at showing the miracle of love. Jennifer Connelly's devotion in A Beautiful Mind, Viggo Mortensen's eyes in The Return of the King and Berenice Bejo's innocence and kindness in The Artist - they all portrayed beautiful emotions and at the same time the incredible strength of love.

  5. My favorite romanic scene: Ron and Hermione kissing in DH2. Even though it wasn't like the book, I was just glad it happened. For awhile there I thought their shit screen writer wouldn't include it.

    1. I liked the scene but I was disappointed there was no slow build up to it, I think it would have made it more memorable.

  6. I was expecting a Valentine's post from you and you did not disappoint Sati, so THANK YOU!! LOVE all of them with the exception of the two I haven't seen yet. Beautiful scenes indeed, you picked wisely :D You'd be happy to know that some of these couples are on my list of 14 movie couples as well (you might be able to guess which ones).

  7. Very cool. A lot of scenes from The Fountain pop into my mind when I think of Romances. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan sailing (floating?) off at the end of Joe Versus the Volcano. Benjamin and Daisy's scenes in Benjamin Button.

  10. Great post! I love the ones from A Beautiful Mind, Amelie, The Artist and Titanic.

    One of my favorites is the car scene in Before Sunset, when Celine almost touches Jesse when he is telling her about his dream and she pulls back with that look in her eyes. It gets me every time.

  13. You. Youuuuuuuu.

    What an excellent post, Sati. It's very sweet and so well done.

    While I like all your picks, my favorite is from Big Fish. Depending on the day, that's in my top 10 of all time. I show to my tough-shit 7th graders every year and they always look at me as if they've just seen actual magic. A few of them even get what's going on, too.

    As cliche and overplayed as it may be, the 'you had me at hello' bit from Jerry Maguire is also a favorite of mine.

    1. Thank you so much!

      Big Fish is in my top 20, have been there since I've seen it. It's just such a magical and fiercely romantic picture. Oh, it's a lovely film to show to the kids! The fact that they liked it gives me hope :)

  18. Amelie, The Artist, and Seeking For a Friend for the End of The World are all great scenes! Aragorn and Arwen too, but I forgot it considering I see it a long time ago, it should've been memorable because it's a long journey for them.
    Great post, Sati!
