7 Movies That Teach Us about Love ...


I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for romantic films - so any movies that teach us about love are winners for me. Okay, okay, so love probably isn't actually like this in real life - not for some of these films anyway. But a girl can dream, right? So here are seven movies that teach us about love, in all its messy, wonderful, hopeless glory.

1. Amour


Amour may be one of those movies that teach us about love, but it’s in no way a fluffy love story. This film has been a firm feature during the awards season this year, and rightly so. The French film, directed by Michael Haneke, focuses on an elderly couple and the process they go through after the wife, played by Emmanuelle Riva, suffers a series of strokes, leaving her unable to speak and paralysed. We follow George, her husband, as he copes with what's happened. It's an unflinching, terrifying and artistically beautiful look at the nature of love, death and ageing.
