Romantic comedies have a special place in the movie category. When you’re feeling euphoric, there’s nothing better than watching made for each other, laughing, breaking up, and eventually reuniting kind of movies.
But there are times when a simple romance is required, not humour. You want to feel the attraction, see the sizzle on the screen between the tracks and see some of the greatest cinematic kisses ever. Perhaps you don’t even need to find the simple couple walking together into the sunset, but something is happening in your life, and you’ll have to grab a large box of tissues and scream like a catharsis in your heart.
Hey, that doesn’t mean one or two epic love stories don’t exist in case you know where to look. Thankfully several best all-time romantic movies are still available for download. If you don’t want to waste your time on download means you can directly watch movies here. Let us see those most epic romantic movies.
The English Patient (1996)
This adaptation of Michael Ondaatje’s novel stars Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas as two miserable lovers in North Africa during the Second World War. In 1997, he received 12 nominations at the 69th Academy Awards and won nine awards including Best Picture. Unless at the end you’re not crying then you’re a beast. Just kidding : P
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet are the stars of this spiritual journey of lost love that tells the story of a split couple experiencing a cycle of erasing each other’s memories. The movie has a classic Charlie Kaufman script, having a pass even if you’re not one for the trope Manic Pixie Fantasy Girl.
Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)
The favourite film festival, nominated for a multitude of awards at the end of 2019, follows a girl who was commissioned to fly to a remote island to paint a woman’s portrait as part of an arranged marriage; of course, she falls in love with his subject and forbidden love is formed.
In The Mood For Love (2000)
Set in Hong Kong in the 1960s, this beautiful film tells the story of two neighbours (played by Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung) whose spouses have an affair with each other. Those two continue to spend more time together as they face this deception, and ultimately grow feelings for each other.
Before Sunrise (1995)
Before the trilogy, the first instalment, Before Sunrise follows the whimsical story of a young man and woman who meet on a train and plan to go to Vienna by night. A beautiful ode to love, stretched out by constraints, this film will leave you in awe, and happy to learn that there is more to it.
Notting Hill (1999)
I’m just a girl standing in front of a guy, asking him to love her. Gah, we don’t know how cheesy he is, this story of a charming English bookseller (Hugh Grant) and A popular American actress (Julia Roberts, basically herself) is a real golden romantic comedy.
Shakespeare in Love (1998)
The movie’s title says it all. As he wrote the classic Romeo and Juliet, what could be more romantic than a romance involving famous playwright William Shakespeare? A love piece with a side of vintage Gwyneth Paltrow and forbidden times.
If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)
This adaptation of James Baldwin comes from Barry Jenkins, producer of Moonlight, who is his own kind of romance. They are a family, madly in love, waiting for a son whose relationship is broken when one of them is accused of a crime that he has not committed.
Love Actually (2003)
Several stars (including Hugh Grant and Colin Firth) attempt to pinpoint their love life with lots of tears and laughter in the mix. Also, there is an epic take of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas.”
Shape of Water (2017)
If you know something about Guillermo del Toro, then you know better than ever about predicting what the director of fantasy would think of a romance. Of course, other than that, it will be nicer and more distinctive than you can imagine.
Shape of Water tells the story of Elisa, a stupid girl who works as a concierge in a government laboratory when she falls in love with the lab’s top-secret specimen: an amphibious creature. The film is a true homage of love that comes in all types and sizes.
