Romance I believe has now become associated with a diabetic form of representation of love found in most rom-coms. And these rom-coms have unfortunately evolved into what superhero comics today have from pulp fiction, everything apart from its fundamental motive. A whole genre that dwells on excitement and the effort to outsmart the creators’ own self while writing conversations. Every romantic movie now inclines towards complexity because that would make it different from the other one, and in the process forgets that love is indeed one of the most natural and simplistic emotions. It’s felt, it’s not forced upon others, including the viewers.
Now I’ll be looking at some romantic conversations in movies, not on the basis of how big a grin the guy sports or how many tears of happiness the girl sheds. I’ll be looking at moments that have a profound impact on their characters as well as my own self. These moments are heartfelt depictions of love that may or may not leave a smile on your face, but viscerally depict the unbreakable bond between the characters. And since these are conversations the necessary prerequisite is to have two or more characters, apart from a unique entry whose inclusion will be understood contextually. So here is the list of 15 most romantic conversations from movies that will stay with you forever:
15. Before Sunrise (1995)
Jesse: I feel like this is, uh, some dream world we’re in, y’know.
Celine: Yeah, it’s so weird. It’s like our time together is just ours. It’s our own creation. It must be like I’m in your dream, and you in mine, or something.
Jesse: And what’s so cool is that this whole evening, all our time together, shouldn’t officially be happening.
Celine: Yeah, I know. Maybe that’s why this feels so otherworldly.
14. Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013)
Adèle: I miss you. I miss not touching each other. Not seeing each other, not breathing in each other. I want you. All the time. No one else. I miss everything. But I have to say, I miss this a lot. Let me touch you.
Adèle: Don’t say you don’t want to. I don’t believe it. I know you miss it too. Touch.
Emma: Stop. I can’t.
Adèle: Excuse me, I don’t know. I don’t know… It’s beyond my control.
Emma: You’re excused.
Adèle: You won’t see me anymore?
Adèle: You didn’t forgive me.
Emma: Yes, I did.
Adèle: You don’t love me anymore?
Adèle: Are you sure?
Emma: I’m with someone now. You know.
Emma: But I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. My whole life.
Adèle: Sorry. You know me. Sometimes I cry for nothing.
