Cinematography is an integral part of our lives. It is really hard to imagine our world without movies. Millions of couples are thankful to the cinema that made their first dates successful and gave a chance to continue their relationships. Millions of working people can’t imagine their leisure time after a long working day without watching movies on the sofa with a bucket of popcorn.
As for me, a nerdy single woman, cinema is a silent friend who always knows how to cheer me up, support and console me. Everything is simple. When I am upset and want just to be sad I watch my favorite tearjerker like ‘P.S. I Love You’ and have a good weep. When I need to get a shot of adventurism I view ‘Ocean’s 11’ (though I am not a gambler at all and have not even click on Nederlandsegokken NL website of online casino or any other site of this kind, not once) and ‘Casino’ by Martin Scorsese.
Now when Saint Valentine’s Day is coming with all its common attributes like hearts and ‘love is in the air’ songs, it really becomes stressful to outlive this holiday when you are alone (I guess, many singles know this feeling). And again I resort to the art of cinema. It comes to the rescue, shows me amazing love stories and reminds me that someday love will find me. Meanwhile, I enjoy my 3 top movies that create the appropriate romantic atmosphere in an unobtrusive way.
I never get tired of watching this movie again and again. It is my antidepressant and a source of optimism, and at the same time is a reminder that men can suffer from unanswered love or be afraid of being refused. The monologue of Alex “Hitch” Hitchens the role of which was so brilliantly played by Will Smith is the most powerful scene I like the most. In this film love wins everything and two love stories are happily ended, to my great joy.
- ‘Love and Basketball’
This film is a bit dramatic and make me worry about two main characters that are Quincy and Monica. The love to basketball was the first thing that united both of them. This sport was the background on which a long love story of Quincey and Monica developed. I like this movie because it shows that nothing is more precious than love and family. And if love is true, nothing can separate two loving hearts.
- ‘Something New’ by Sanaa Hamri
I adore this movie, and nobody will be able to convince me that ‘Something new’ is a regular melodrama. To my mind, it is a hymn to love overcoming social norms, prejudices and even our own misperceptions. And the thing here is not only in the issue of color, but also in so many frames and restrictions society puts like age, level of wealth or education. Love tramples on all conventions in this movie, and the leading characters Kenya McQueen and Brian Kelly get marry.
