In case, you and your partner are looking for recommendations that will make you fall in love with (read: lust) each other, then you are at the right place.

22. Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)
Two insanely good looking persons engaging in the wildest sexual fantasies one can imagine is reason enough to book your tickets to this orgasmic treat of a film. The Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson starrer ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ series works for one simple reason – sex. The nonexistent cerebral maturity in their relationship is made up for by the intense display of physical chemistry. Despite being a hardcore erotic flick the film maintains a sense of mainstream commercial feel and all thanks to the high profile good looks and screen presence of the two leads. ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ by no means remotely qualifies as a good piece of cinema but you must credit it for reintroducing uninhibited sex in mainstream cinema. And naturally, the two protagonists in this tale of love, lust, pain and suffering became modern-day sex symbols even if on a superficial level. They are placed on the bottom of the list because their passionate love affair is bereft of any sense of purpose or novelty.

21. Carol (2015)
Todd Haynes’ ‘Carol’ is quite simply one of the most beautiful films about what it feels like to fall in love. These are two people dying to fall in each other’s arms, yearning for a sense of emotional liberation from the clutches of a cold society. Therese is a shy, young girl who isn’t happy with her boyfriend. Carol is a wealthy, middle aged mother on the verge of a divorce. These are two people in different phases of life, from a different strata of society but the world around them is cold and indifferent to their feelings and desires and this is where they meet. With an amazing cast and a nuanced script, Haynes crafts a timeless story of love so full of warmth and humanity.
