December 22nd – Love Actually

For the full calendar click here.

Awfully close to Christmas and here come the movies you must not miss. If I had only one Christmas movie that I could watch in order to get into the Christmas mood it would be Love Actually.

Directed by Richard Curtis, who also made the fantastic The Boat that Rocked (again starring Bill Nighy), Love Actually is a collection of short stories featuring some of the greatest living british actors:

Bill Nighy, Emma Thompson, Alan “Snape” Rickman, Colin Firth, Rowan Atkinson, Liam Neesen, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley.

The movie deals with all kinds of love, be it the love between siblings, the type love that makes you do incredibly ridiculous things, unconventional love, the love to the people you spend your life with, unrequited love and a whole bunch more.

Two years ago my sister bought the DVD and forced the entire family to watch it and I am glad she did because from the title and the DVD it didn’t look that appealing but Richard Curtis manages to find the balance between sappiness and healthy dose of cynism.

Even the most clichéd scene has a hilarious icebreaker that makes you laugh, so put in the DVD and have the realization that Christmas is all around:
