I'd never heard of this film until I came across it by chance in 2013, 10 years after it was made. It instantly became a favourite, which I watched three times in as many days, then ordered my own copy for repeat viewing, undoubtedly several times a year, in the future.
The film looks at a half-dozen, different relationships. Although most of them are implausible, and a couple of them, at least to me, are silly, even irritatingly so, a couple are quite touching and, overall, this romantic comedy is so utterly captivating and charming, that you willingly suspend disbelief. It's quite funny in all the right places, and superbly acted, not only by the stars (Grant, Firth, Thompson, Neeson, Linney and Rickman), but also by all the other, to me, unknown actors, especially Martine McCutcheon and Lúcia Moniz. Wish they'd played the original Troggs' 1967 hit song, "Love is All Around", instead of the mangled cover, but that's a minor quibble.
I usually agree with Leonard Maltin, but not in this case; I give it five, albeit flagrantly and enthusiastically biased, stars! This is a terrific, highly recommended, movie, thoroughly entertaining and heart-warming, even if it is "light fluff".
This past holiday season was the first time my lovely Googliebear and I ever saw Love Actually, a 2004 movie release that seems to star every British actor since the dawn of time. And to say we were mesmerized by this tour de force is an understatement.
The plot is simple really. It is all stories about Love. That’s it. Now enjoy.
To expand abit on that is slightly difficult, since so much happens to so many characters who interact in so many ways, that to explain everything away, even partially, would be hard. We are talking explaining requiring flowcharts, a powerpoint presentation, an abacus, and numerous sound affects.
To give you a taste of what to expect and love, one storyline involves the newly elected Prime Minister developing somewhat of a crush on a staffer. Another concept is a widowed step-father helping his son with first love. Yet a different aspect is shown when a middle-aged man contemplates an affair. Bittersweet hits us with the story of the woman torn between her brother and her maybe lover. And don’t even get me started on the aged rock star staging a comeback, very much on his own terms.
All these bits and pieces of humanity mesh and mix together so well. Just when one tale reaches a certain point, they wisely flip to a different one. This joyful process continues unabated throughout the entire film, making it all feel like one long continuing narrative, a glimpse we are all getting into everyone’s lives, journeys that are still going on to this day.Read more ›
Some of the scenarios are a little wierd like the couple of reserved tongue tied body doubles who spend all day in the nude together simulating sex and a single British Prime Minister (doesn't happen). All together the film covers eight couples in the throws of finding love, which keeps the movie interesting and fresh paced.
The genius of the film is in the way the little agonies and ecstacies of love are portrayed, which is so real it takes you beyond any feeling of contrivance in the story lines. You can see yourself and feel agonies of old come back to haunt you as this movie unfolds. The missed chance, the verbal stumblng, blowing the main chance by doing too much or worse doing too little or nothing. This is not the human condition type of great soul searing agony, in this movie everything you see happens every day in every country and at sometime in our lives to all of us.
Within the overall feel good factor there are some really good performances, Neesom dealing with the death of his wife and bonding with his step son in particular stands out in the memory.
The feel good comes from the fact that everyone, or nearly everyone gets their woman or man. The same sadly can not be said for reality, but watching the movie you conveniently forget and feel great.
