2. Love is like the wind.

"A WALK TO REMEMBER " , One of my all time favourite movies in fact for me the best romantic movie till date and the only romantic movie that made me cry !!!!

PLOT : " Landon Carter is a popular guy at school who seeks the help of Jamie Sullivan to get through the college drama but both have nothing in common with each other, Landon's aimless, moody, reckless guy who breezed through school on looks, has no plans, no future and no faith in himself whereas Jamie is an very orthodox christian girl with a strict father , Landon falls in love with Jamie but when a heart-breaking secret becomes known that puts their relationship to the test, it is then that Landon and Jamie realize the true meaning of love and fate. "

This movie is adapted on screen from a novel titled the same written by Nicholas Sparks.I just saw this movie without any expectations and thought it would just be another run of the mill romantic flick but was pleasantly surprised with the subtleness in how the movie was carried from the beginning.

The lead actors Shane West & Mandy Moore did their role perfectly evoking the right kind of emotions in sync with their excellent chemistry , the orthodox christian daughter played by Mandy Moore was so sweet making me ponder whether is it too good to be true or just another hypocrite !!!

Each and every scene is so engaging backed up by soothing music creating a feeling of whether I'm watching too good a romance.The on-screen chemistry made me really jealous , i dunno who should be given the credit for this , the director ? Or the writer ? Its up to you to decide.

Another reason why it's such a great movie is because you see the transition of someone who I guess you can say was "heading on the wrong path" given another chance to make something out of themselves, and that makes you feel good.

I liked how they showed the transformation of Shane West's character. It was very believable. We get to witness a sort-of "miracle" as the film puts it of how a wayward teen turns his life around.

Mandy Moore delivered a performance so genuine and moving it totally stunned me. She was utterly spellbinding in every scene she was in .I thought her translation of "Its gonna be love" during the school play was cinematic magic. She was for those moments, every man's dream.

A Walk to Remember is not ur typical love story where love is just a part of it , I never expected this movie would touch me so much , You will feel as you are part of the movie by relating to it and you'll just love it.I hope i could love and care like that !!!

At times I agree, the film seemed to be headed down THE MAJESTIC path of over-sentiment but I'm sorry guys, I don't care. So long as Jamie was on-screen ripping my emotions apart, the rest really didn't matter!

This movie blows LOVE STORY totally out of the water.The film's simplicity, lack of pretension and strong supporting actors that serves it so very well.It makes you feel like you want to become a better person, and not be so selfish, self-centered, and makes you realize that there more important things in life.

"A Walk to Remember" is most certainly not a teen movie.It is a movie for everyone , for the older it gives them something to look back on , for the younger it gives us something to dream of in the future. I think it is great to watch a movie that makes you cry and smile all at the same time,and yet come out with such a happy feeling.

  • Rating : "PG"

P.S : The novelist Nicholas Sparks is also credit for creating another romantic masterpiece in " The Notebook " that also ranks among the all time great romantic movies.I rate " A Walk to Remember " as the best romantic movie till date , wanna disagree ????
