Five Romantic Films to Watch on Valentine’s Day

It’s Valentine’s Day so having finally cleared the hallway of a mountain of cards (Poor postman, or woman… having to deliver on a Sunday too!), I’ve appropriately compiled a list of five romantic films worth watching. For the record, I’ve avoided any films that have featured in my previous posts.

Delicacy (2011)

Audrey Tautou is beautiful. Her co-worker (Played by Francois Damiens) is not… but they get together in a ‘love is on the inside’ kind of film.

Samba (2014)

Another French film, this time starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Omar Sy.

Sy plays a Senegalase migrant who ends up in detention and Gainsbourg is his caseworker. Cue … a blossoming romance!

Untamed Heart (1993)

Christian Slater and Marisa Tomei star in this Minneapolis based film. Slater’s character has a baboon’s heart… or at least he thinks that he does!

Slater saves Tomei’s character from a late night attack, cue a, well… love story, obviously!

Bed of Roses (1998)

Another Christian Slater film. It’s my blog, I can do what I want!

Slater runs a flower shop and secretly provides an upset woman (Played by Mary Stuart Masterson) with some flowers. Cue a, well… romance, obviously!

The Science of Sleep (2006)

Okay, by this point I was struggling so it’s back to Charlotte Gainsbourg. This Michel Gondry directorial effort stars Gael Garcia Bernal as well as Alain Chabat. Its surreal and arguably not first and foremost a romance but still, it’s a fine film!

Disclaimer: Don’t worry. My wife doesn’t get jealous about the mountain of cards every year… she’s long over it!
