1. China Moon (1994) 5.5/10 Romance/noir - Not the most stunning in terms of acting or story, but it’s passable.
2. Maldeamores (2007) Drama, Romance, Comedy 5.5/10 Most of the situations portrayed were the absurdities of love or the annoyances that prevent love from occurring.
3. I've Always Loved You (1946) 3.5/10 Among Borzage’s worst.
4. Change of Heart (1934) 6/10 Starts off very blah, but then Janet Gaynor elevates it to another level toward the end.

A meandering yet fascinating time capsule of 1960s America. Gary Lockwood is not easy to warm to, yet his malaise is very easy to identify with - so anxious about the uncertainty of whether or not he will be drafted that he cannot keep his mind on (or commit to) one thing. As for the titular shop, it comes into the narrative as Lockwood tries to romance a lady who works there; but does he really want her or is he further trying to distract himself?

To call the story here muddled would be an understatement with Chuck's attempts to infiltrate a secret ninja organisation and a possible terrorism conspiracy often pushed aside for Chuck to constantly remember the past. We do not see these events though; rather we oddly hear them trough some of the most ridiculous voiceover work ever committed to film as his narrated thoughts sporadically echo aloud at increasingly random points here.

Dolly Parton is very lively in the lead role here and there are some great moments as she gives unconventional advice to her listeners when on air. The romance here is strictly by the numbers and quite predictable though. The film is also littered with montage sequences that chiefly seem to be there to showcase Parton's songs. Her tunes are catchy though and for the most part, this is a reasonably enjoyable affair. Spalding Gray has a fun bit part too.

Directed by David Lean, this at times feels like an attempt at another Brief Encounter and the final few minutes are very well done. The movie lacks tension and urgency though and the relationship never really seems as doomed or futile as the characters make it out to be. It is only around halfway in that the romance even kicks into gear with the majority of the film spent on Katharine Hepburn filming the Venetian setting on her Super-8 camera.

Kind of a slog to get through. It was a little hard to track, and while I appreciated the quality of the film making and the epic nature of it, it felt overly long and detailed for a love story. Great sets, costuming, etc, but not my thing.

1. China Moon (1994) 5.5/10 Romance/noir - Not the most stunning in terms of acting or story, but it’s passable.
2. Maldeamores (2007) Drama, Romance, Comedy 5.5/10 Most of the situations portrayed were the absurdities of love or the annoyances that prevent love from occurring.
3. I've Always Loved You (1946) 3.5/10 Among Borzage’s worst.
4. Change of Heart (1934) 6/10 Starts off very blah, but then Janet Gaynor elevates it to another level toward the end.
5. Amour & turbulences/Love Is in the Air (2013) 5.75/10
6. Summer '03 (2018) 6/10
7. At Middleton (2013) 5/10

The songs are generally pleasant here, but as a moody pianist, Frank Sinatra is the clear highlight with an especially chilling dangerous driving scene. Unfortunately, it is over 30 minutes in before Sinatra even appears with only the dullest of soap opera level relationship drama for over the entire first quarter of the film. The final five minutes are pretty weak too, especially considering the emotional crescendo that the film reaches shortly before.

35. 45 Years (2015)

Image

This film is best known for netting Rampling her first and only Oscar nomination and the film lives and breathes due to her performance and her subtle changes of facial expression as she begins to question her husband's past. Alas, there is little to the film beyond this dynamic; Tom Courtenay is rather muted as the husband and the whole things ends abruptly without any sense of resolution. Rampling and her character are certainly interesting though.

36. Code 46 (2003)

Image

A blend of sci-fi and romance with quite a few similarities to Eternal Sunshine. Tim Robbins and Samantha Morton do not share particularly great chemistry together though and a subplot involving viruses that are manufactured (to create greater empathy, improve one's singing voice etc.) ends up being more interesting than the strained love story. The concept is not half-bad, but less mushiness and warmer characters may have gone a long way.

And with less than half an hour until midnight, that's it for me this round. :sweat: Thanks for hosting, 72a!

This is utterly ridiculous, but sweet and fun. It's a happy film with adorable dogs and a cute love story between two of the canine leads. And bonus, dogs like this film too, as my wife and I each had a dog on our laps staring at the TV.

17. The Awful Truth (1937)
Maybe not quite at the heights of the finest screwball comedies like His Girl Friday and Bringing Up Baby, but pretty darn close. This has multiple laugh-out-loud lines, and an absolutely impeccable Cary Grant at his finest--sharp, witty, silly, clever.

I hit 100 early, so thanks for hosting 72allinncallme!

Interesting that I found no heteronormative Romances I could recommend this month. Only limited a LGBT movie: Bent.
