Love Actually Reviews
Also, this scene when Harry bought a gift another woman. It`s disgusting. And he knew that this decision will have dire consequences. He could lose his beautiful family.....
What I really did not like? Porn actors - if I remember their names were John and Judy. It was utter rubbish. Bill Nighy - at first I even took him for a real rock star.
But special attention, I want to draw to Mia. She had not a lead role. But I liked her. You ask me why? She is like «fallen woman». But I will say that there is no. Mia lonely, young and beautiful girl. And yes - she is cunning cutie (oh oh). Don`t judge a book by its cover. I saw it just the girl who was looking for her love, and in fact she was unhappy.
Put it in a nutshell, I want to say there are different situations in this movie, some of them dramatic, others funny, sometimes touching but never corny. Moreover, It made me laugh, it made me cry, hug everyone, tell everyone how much I loved them!!! The film is really kind and nice, and I would advise you to watch it. My vote is nine. Xo xo
First of all, I was on the edge of my seat when I found out that the film was divided into small stories related to each other. Discussing about all scenes and amazing couples of characters will take much time so I'll speak about my favorites. It's not a secret that the best couple in the movie for me is Juliet (Keira Knightley) and Mark (Andrew Lincol). Actually, Juliet is quite happy-go-lucky, but at the same time, she is down-to-earth and shrewd, because she first understood that Mark had fallen in love with her. But being so shy, Mark couldn't open his heart and confess his feelings.
Also I have a strange feeling about that couple John and Judy (Martin Freeman and Joanna Page) who was shooting in a so-called "romcom in a bed" almost during the whole film. Their actions were so unconvincing, wooden, feeble and unbelievable that they looked ridiculous. Although, I'm glad they were together.
Secondly, Harry (Alan Rickman) and Caren's (Emma Thompson) story sent chills down my spine because this is so vital and urgent nowadays and it showed how relationships can change after a long period of living together. Karen was so realistic, suspenseful and convincing that I could hardly control my feelings. Anyway, she was a strong woman and made everything to save her family, and Harry finally understood what value he was losing when trying to cheat on his wife.
Thirdly, I can't express how much I like and appreciate such an actor as Rowan Atkinson. It was interesting to find out that he played a role in the film as a cameo. Thanks to him the film was decorated with the unforgettable atmosphere of that old British humor, which can be seen in the films starring Rowan Atkinson.
To sum up everything I've said, without a doubt this film is worth watching and deserves good reviews. Despite the fact that this movie is quite slow-paced, simplistic, filled with clichés and predictable, it's so realistic, original, well-developed and versatile that I did like it. Nevertheless, we need to thank all the acclaimed and unsurpassed cast and its perfect work, all the lead and supporting actors. Also that was fantastic to listen all the soundtracks and songs during the whole film that made me enjoy the atmosphere of Christmas.
I advise everyone to see this movie at least once, you will not regret about it! And I wish you a merry Xmas and a happy New Year!
Well, the plot is unbelievably simple and common. Sometimes the stories are utter rubbish and on the verge of absurd. For example, relationships between David and Natalie , as no distinguished Prime Minister will marry a woman from the lower class.
There are several well-known and great actors like Liam Neeson and Keira Knightley but nevertheless, their play is unconvincing and mediocre.
After watching the movie, I was terribly frustrated because I could've watch smth else.
If I were you, I would think of it well whether watch the movie or not.
I hope everybody would enjoy this film as I did!!!!??
What aboutcharacters of the film - they are all quite different. I suppose that there are no minor characters, perhaps only Billy, who connects somehow all the characters and creat a Christmas mood throughout the film. If to speak more precisely, let's take one couple. For example David and Natalie. The first problem in their relation is that David takes a high position-he is a prime minister, whereas Natalie is just a secretary from a common family. But David likes Natalie's impulsive and spontaneous character. It's very funny to watch for them, how they try to communicate to each other, contrary to the laws of society.
To sum up, I can just say that's a cute film. There are no special effects but the plot and the couples' stories are great. Also the soundtracks to the film, Christmas songs that you can't help not to sing along.
Big figures like them have made a great job, creating their characters. Neeson appeared to be a good father (unlike "Taken"), Grant was perfect being minister.
This is the only romantic comedy, that have ever made me laugh (for the record - I don't like movies like this). It also brought me some Xmas spirit, which worth 5 stars already+ good soundtrack, which is not my favourite (don't like pop), but I have to admit, that they know, in which moment to use it. These components made me feel better. And, of course, Christmasy. But, I have to take one star away because of a storyline about Colin (C. Marshall), and it's too naive.
All in all, it's gonna be in my NY Movie list. If you haven't see "Love actually" - please do. You won't regret it)
To tell the truth, «Love Actually» it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me smile. It's adorable when it needs to be and also creates some drama when it's important. I really liked «Love Actually», there were hillarious characters and they weaved them all in together perfectly. I think the music is the true soul of this movie. Especially the song «Too lost in you» by Sugababes. Cheers for this music band!
I would like to distinguish three story lines of the film which have won my heart.
The first story line is the relationship between Jamie (Colin Firth) and Aurelia (Lucia Moniz). The play with the language barrier is quite clever. Firth is all sincerity and gentleness here. Moniz's exquisite charm is quite irresistible. Together, they make the most wonderful couple.
The second one is relationship between Daniel (Liam Neeson) and Sam (Thomas Sangster). I suppose that it is of great value to watch growing mutual love they share with each other. The boy is so cute at his age, however he has very mutual inner world and soul!!!
The third best story moment when was the press conference given (standing side by side) by the American President and the British Prime Minister. The moment when Hugh Grant (as the Prime Minister) finally tells the American president to his face that Britain will no longer grovel before American wishes but will have an independent view of its own - great!!!
Nevertheless, I am really shocked at all the bad reviews I have read regarding this film. I suppose that this movie is cool. I guess, maybe you need to be in the right mood for it?
To sum up, this is a movie about taking big chances, about making big gestures to show our love, and about the bigges feelings that might make us crazy and miserable but remind us that we are alive and why we are alive. In conclusion, any movie that manages to include a child dressed as a Nativity lobster, love-emergency lessons in both drums and Portuguese, and Hugh Grant dancing through the halls of 10 Downing Street to the Pointer Sisters is worth seeing at least twice.
