about this painting:
WHY WE WATCH ROMANTIC MOVIES
Romantic movies have always been one of the most popular branch of cinema industry. They enjoy a certain popularity among women of all ages. A lot of men love them as well, even if they would rather die than admit that.
What makes them so special? Why do we like to watch romantic comedies and melodramas, even when they lack being realistic or the screenwriter is definitely not Stephen King?
Probably, because they show the life, which is perfect. Plain and modest girls are loved and appreciated as they are (unfortunately, we have to admit that this does not always happen in real life). Young people chase their dreams and succeed. Talking about melodramas, they also make us experience feelings that are very strong and not easily found in everyday life. Luckily, we do not have to deal with various difficult situations that are sometimes showed in movies like famine, wars or uncurable illnesses. It can make us appreciate life more.
FAMOUS MOVIE SCENES WITH KISSES
Good scenes with kisses often become iconic for many generations. Let us look at some examples:
- Titanic, 1997
An unbelievably beautiful scene with Rose and Jack kissing on the snout of the ship with a sunset burning on the background inspired many imitations and parodies. And this is the best mark for success.
Moreover, we know that the love of these two characters is doomed to end, which adds to the scene some extra spice.
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 1961
It is unlikely that there is something more romantic and more iconic in the cinema industry that a kiss under the rain. This has turned into a cliché and every woman from 10 till 90 is secretly dreaming about such a dramatic and passionate kiss. And not only women.
- The Notebook, 2004
This is one of the most touching and romantic movies in the history of cinema. A kiss on the beach under the rain – one of the best shots of this tape.
A famous artists Leonid Afremov, being a pretty romantic person, could not resist the temptation of creating a kiss painting.
The canvas looks as if an action is taking place in the last century. Behind the figures of a lady and a gentleman who are wearing old fashioned elegant costumes, you can see a carriage of the beginning of the 20th century.
This time period is considered much more romantic than modern times. People had more social restrictions, and tragic love stories caused by social inequality, serious illnesses or distance were much more often. Love for them was the only way to experience freedom. So, no wonder, that Afremov decides to show this historical period on his painting.
