10 Greatest Romance Movies: Tahmina Rafaella

10 Greatest Romance Movies

It wasn’t easy coming up with this list as I am a big sucker for good romance. But nevertheless, here are some of my favorite romance movies with a memorable quote from each…

1)     Head-On: “Are you strong enough to stay between me and her?”

2)     In The Mood For Love: “It is a restless moment. She has kept her head lowered… to give him a chance to come closer. But he could not, for lack of courage. She turns and walks away”

3)    The Before Trilogy (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset & Before Midnight): “I kind of see this all love as this escape, for two people who don't know how to be alone”

4)    The Umbrellas of Cherbourg: “People only die of love in movies”

5)     Brief Encounter: “I don't want to pretend anything either to you or to anyone else. But from now on, I shall have to. That's what's wrong. Don't you see? That's what spoils everything. That's why we must stop, here and now, talking like this. We're neither of us free to love each other. There's too much in the way. There's still time, if we control ourselves and behave like sensible human beings. There's still time”

6)    Scenes From a Marriage: “Sometimes I don’t think of you for hours, and it’s magic”

7)     A Heart In Winter: “I must tell you the truth, I’ve decided to seduce you, without loving you”.

8)     Elegy: “But we never actually see the person. We see the beautiful shell. We're blocked by the beauty barrier. Yes. We're so dazzled by the outside, we never make it inside”

9)    Roman Holiday: “It would be difficult to — Rome! By all means, Rome. I will cherish my visit here in memory as long as I live”

10)  The Piano: “Ada, I'm unhappy. 'Cause I want you. 'Cause my mind has seized on you and can think of nothing else. This is why I've suffered. I am sick with longing. I don't eat, I don't sleep. So, if you have come with no feeling for me, then go. Go. Go. Get out. Leave!”
