The Notebook

the notebookWell I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you what a marvellous film The Notebook is but I couldn’t resist! It is definitely the best film for a girl’s night in. Last night, I stambled on it on TV and two hours later I found that I hadn’t changed the channel. It was not my intention to watch it, again, I’ve already seen it 2 or 3 times but I couldn’t help it.

The film is about a wonderful love story between Allie and Noah. What amazes me about this love story is that it is like a lesson in love. Noah says: if you’re a bird I’m a bird. What I get from that is: after I met you I couldn’t be anything else but what you want me to be; I couldn’t go anywhere else but where you are; I agree to anything as long as you’re there with me. It is as simple as that.

For those of you who have seen it, well you know what  I am talking about. For those of you who haven’t, I envy you!The_Notebook_15


The Lucky One

“…something happens when you least expect it, sets you on a course that you never planned, into a future you never imagined.”

Not having seen my better half for almost six months I wanted to watch a film to remind me of love. Having watched and loved The Notebook, Message in a Bottle and One Day I thought that a right choice would be to watch The Lucky One; another Nicholas Sparks novel adapted into a film. A marine got back from Iraq believing that he survived the war because of a picture of a girl he found in the ruins. So he was determined to go find her, his guardian angel.

Unfortunately the film was a bit disappointing. It describes the least tragic pair of lovers in any of Sparks’ novels. Beth, the leading lady, was a total bitch in the beginning for no apparent reason and Logan, the marine, turned out to be too perfect! But how can a man be perfect when he has longer eyelashes than his girl?

Nevertheless. the film is set in a beautiful scenery, the supporting characters of the grandmother, Beth’s son and her ex husband are more realistic and they do support the film. The photography is also excellent and the music is calming. You should watch it only if there is really nothing better to do.
