So, Christmas holidays are over, and seems like all the magic that makes cold and hazy winter days brighter is far behind. But it’s to soon to fall into a funk as there is another great holiday coming – Valentine’s Day. And no matter what plans you and your sweetheart have for the big day – be it a romantic dinner or a day spent together at a ski resort – the best way to end it is and has always been to light up some candles, take a bottle of wine and watch a good movie about love. Check our list of the most romantic movies that will help you make this day with your Valentine full of love and romance.


1. The Notebook

The Notebook

Definitely one of the most romantic movies of all time, it tells the story of two young people, Allie and Noah, who were just meant to be together. Allie is a beautiful educated girl from a good family, Noah is just a nice guy, way out of her league. Their teenage-summer fling turns into something most people can only dream of – their love is so strong that can overcome all the barriers sent by the fortune. It’s not just the plot that makes you slop tears throughout the story, it’s also the play of the actors: from the very first shot you really believe them, you know for sure their love is real, you just feel the chemistry on the screen – and no wonder, the actors soon became a couple in real life!

2. Love Actually

Love Actually

Although the plot is set at Christmas time, it is hard to find a better story for the Valentine’s day. The movie pictures multiple love stories: for some couples love is just being born, for others it faces difficulties. But the main message of the movie can be felt in every shot: love is in the air, just be ready to feel and accept it. The stories are sometimes a little naïve and over-romantic, if there can be too much of romance, but you still believe every word you hear: just check the cast of the movie including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson and others – and you will immediately want to watch it. But you should have some patience and wait for the special day to watch it together with your other half.

3. Meet Joe Black

Meet Joe Black

Featuring such screen stars as Brad Pitt, Anthony Hopkins and Claire Forlani this movie is not just like other tearjerkers. You will be surprised to know that its main plot is not about love – it is about the Death itself, who takes the form of the young man to come and see how people on Earth are doing. And he, Death, falls in love with a real woman – how weird does it sound? Still this is one of the most beautiful love stories ever, acting is breathtaking, and, of course, Pitt and Forlani make such a good couple on screen, that you literally believe every word they say.

4. Romeo + Juliet

Romeo + Juliet

Has there ever been love purer than that of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet? Is there a movie more appropriate for the Valentine’s Day than Baz Luhrmann’s dramatization of this eternal love story? Some Shakespeare’s fans claim it is unacceptable to include guns, sport cars and drugs in the story of the 16th century, but for those who are not afraid to see the classics in an absolutely new light this movie is a must see. And the acting of the young DiCaprio and Claire Danes!!! They will make you believe that true love exists not only in Skaspeare’s romantic poems!


5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

Could you imagine the merry-maker Jim Carrey acting in a movie other than comedy? Could you believe gorgeous Kate Winslet would change her hair color from orange to green and back? And, finally, could you see them two as a couple? Well, they made a great one in Michel Gondry’s science-fiction romantic drama Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Apart from a highly intriguing plot you need to think over to really understand what is going on, there is a strong message that nothing can stand in a way of true love, and if the two are meant to be together they will find each other and will meet their destiny no matter what obstacles appear on their way.

6. Pretty Woman

Pretty woman

This beautiful love story of a modern Cinderella featuring one of the greatest screen couples of all times Julia Roberts and Richard Gere is a perfect choice for those who do not want to weep over undivided love and broken couples but would rather watch a good romantic comedy with a happy ending. There is hardly a person who has not seen the movie yet, but Pretty Woman is one of those screen masterpieces that are never too old and should be revised once in a while. Good both for couples and those who will have to spend this day on their own – just to make sure that real love exists and miracles happen.

7. Legends of the Fall

Legends of the fall

An unbelievably touching and sad war-time story about love, war and family relations. The main character, Tristan (Brad Pitt) returns to his father’s house after his brother gets shot in a war and dies in his own arms. Tristan’s love for his dead brother’s ex-fiance is in the center of the plot and one of the reasons the family faces numerous tragedies and losses. The story is filled with dramatic twists of fate, but the all-mighty and self-sacrificing love is what makes it beautiful and definitely worth seeing.

8. What Dreams May Come

what dreams may come

The story of how true love can overcome anything, even the death itself. Chris Nielsen dies in a car accident and goes to heaven. But the love for his wife is so strong that he keeps looking for her even in the world of the dead. All he cares about is her and is ready to stay by her no matter where – be it a heaven or a hell. Their love is ultimately rewarded and they get the chance to stay together forever, so this is a movie with a wonderful happy ending. The only sad fact about this movie is that there will be no more roles that Robin Williams, one of the greatest actors of all times who has made this world so much better, could ever perform.

9. Pearl Harbor

Pearl Harbor movie

The story of three people whose lives have been irrevocably changed by the war. Set up before, during and after the tragic Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the movie features such stars as Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett and Kate Beckinsale. The love triangle the main characters get into is tragic and sad, but their pure love and lust for life even when there is nothing around but blood and deaths is what brings hope and makes this movie worth watching.

10. Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty shades of grey

And for those who plan on going to the cinema on Valentine’s Day there can be only one right choice possible – Fifty Shades of Grey, that is set to be released just on the eve. The famous novel of the same name has been discussed so much so far that there is no need to describe the plot. The only thing that needs to be mentioned is that the movie trailer is really promising: you can literally feel the chemistry through the screen. So don’t forget to book two tickets and have a wonderful romantic night with someone you love!

But no matter what movie you choose for the special day, be it a tearjerker drama or a romantic comedy, you should also take care of the atmosphere to whatch it in. Make a nice dinner (it will be perfect if you do it together), buy a bottle of good wine, dress up nicely: it is a great holiday and shoud be celebrated respectively. And don’t forget about the present: it would better be not too expensive, just something symbolizing your love. And, of course, be nice to each other, have patience if something goes wrong and remember, that there is nothing that could stand in a way of true love!
