Feelings on camera: 5 movies for Valentine's Day

Time-tested classics of world cinema will help to set the mood for romance.

February 14 is Valentine's Day, which is celebrated in many parts of the world. A wonderful addition to the holiday (or maybe its completion) will be watching a romantic movie. We recommend paying attention to the following movies:

"Letters to Juliet" (2010)

Sophie and Victor are a bride and groom. Their relationship has cracked - he, too engrossed in his own affairs, stopped giving her time. Being in Verona, the girl saw "Juliet's house", near which different girls who faced with love disappointments leave their letters to the heroine of Shakespeare's work. One day, taking the letters off the wall, Sophie finds a letter written by a young Englishwoman, Claire, who, while studying in Italy, fell in love with a local young man, but refused to run away with him. By coincidence, Sophie meets the grandson of that same Englishwoman and helps her find her longtime love.

"Mary and Max" (2009)

An animated story of two lonely people who met through correspondence. She is a teenager desperately looking for her place in the world, he is a man with multiple diagnoses.
