My Favourite Romantic Films

Light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures,
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time re-written every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? Could we?
Mem’ries, may be beautiful and yet
What’s too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it’s the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember…
The way we were..

(The Way We Were – Barbara Streisand)

These are my off the top of my head favourite romantic films. I was just going to do 10 but eventually whittled it down to 14!



Moulin Rouge


becoming jane


Love Story







wuthering heights

Only after I had made my selection did I realise these films are mostly about love and loss. I do not know what it is about the ache of lost love and the pain of letting go that draws me, but there it is.

What would you list as your top 10 romantic films?
