Love is an inexhaustible and eternal topic for movie directors. They manage to show perfect relationships in very different and difficult situations. When watching such movies, we want to take a deep breath and say, “I wish this were true!”
We have decided to collect 14 of the most memorable love stories. When people watch them, they really want to be in the characters’ shoes and experience emotions as strong as theirs.
1. P.S. I Love You (2007)

Not everyone can handle losing someone they love. This happens to the character of this movie. She doesn’t know why she lives, she gets extremely depressed, she doesn’t go out, she loses her job, and she lives in the past. Unfortunately, only in movies is it possible for a person to foresee such a situation and prepare instructions on how to keep on living after he or she is gone. These instructions will help her cope with pain and loss, and a new person, who will support her in this situation, appears in her life.
2. The Notebook (2004)

A touching love story about the relationship between 2 people of different social statuses. They fell in love with each other when they were very young. Even though their lives were quite hard, they never said “no” to their happiness. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that someone would start dancing in the middle of the road.
3. Atonement (2007)

A child’s fantasy could destroy the lives of several people, but it was a beautiful start: very strong emotions, endless happiness, and true love. While watching the movie, many viewers forgot that the people on the screen were actors and not real people.
4. The Fault in Our Stars (2014)

Despite how bad the sickness was, the characters of this movie took the risk to try to be happy. Of course, we could foresee how the story would end, but it takes real courage to let a person into your life knowing that the story won’t end with the words “Happily Ever After.”
5. Moulin Rouge! (2001)

Paris is the place where one can meet their true love and experience a kind of love without any conditions. Bright colors take you to the world of true love, and people love each other so much that even death itself is forced to wait and give the couple more time. It’s very hard to go back to our boring and dull world after such stories.
6. The Fountain (2006)

This is one of the most touching and beautiful love stories. The main character is ready to do anything. He sets out on a crazy journey that seems to be the only way to save his love.
7. Chocolat (2000)

In real life, it’s hard to meet a person who can make those around them happier with simple truths and things. Vianne is young and attractive, and she seems to be gifted. After some time, she will manage to talk sense into the unwelcoming people of the town. And she will also charm a stranger. He is also not just a simple guy — he seems to be rebellious, but he is very caring and kind. It’s hard not to fall in love with him.
8. Vanilla Sky (2001)

What do you need to be happy? “The person“ or ”the thing”? The ideal appearance or unlimited finances? Sometimes these thoughts make reality unbearable. The main character of the movie experienced what it’s like to have everything, to be rich, young, and attractive — and then to have it all fall apart. But love can take the mask off anyone.
9. Sweet November (2001)

The main character’s problems are familiar to everyone: being busy all the time and the inability to live a full life. Only a girl like Sarah can get to this person’s heart. She will impress you with both her strength and her fragility. She is always very easy-going and extremely sensitive.
10. Begin Again (2013)

Art, relationship, friendship, and a chance for a fresh start. You can’t come up with a more ideal story. “This is what I love about music — it makes even the most trivial scene make sense.” Unfortunately, there is no music that accompanies us in our daily lives.
11. Me Before You (2016)

Bright people are seen especially well in dark times. Louisa is like a celebration in Will’s life: she wears strange outfits and has unusual views of the world. Sometimes we all need to meet a person like this. Such people believe in themselves and make you feel confident too. They also make our lives meaningful.
12. Love Me If You Dare (2003)

Adults don’t play children’s games, but the characters from the movie Love Me If You Dare couldn’t stop doing it. It’s hard to imagine such a crazy relationship in real life. The only thing they love more then each other is doing crazy stuff. Could you ask someone you love, “What if we don’t meet for 10 years?” Could you keep your promise?
13. One Day (2011)

They met at a graduation party, they didn’t have a relationship, and they were friends for 20 years. Emma is smart, interesting, and always ready to help. Dexter is handsome and irresponsible, and he always needs her help. He tells her about every girl he dates, and she supports him even though she is fighting with pain. They always look for alternate ways, and they don’t dare tell each other about their real feelings. In real life, it often seems that any happiness is fragile and can’t last for a long time, so maybe it’s better not to reveal your feelings. It’s very sad that so many people are not as decisive as the characters of One Day.
14. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

You don’t simply break up with a person who was very important to you. You’ll still have memories of the person: special words, songs, and things that are meaningful only in the right circumstances. Joel makes a mistake trying to erase all his memories of his ex. A short time after, he realizes how much he loves this eccentric girl, so he tries to keep her in his memory by all means. If you had a chance to erase a memory, would you want to do it? Maybe in a moment where you were very emotional, but you would definitely regret it later.
