What's the most romantic non-rom-com movie ever?

Post by odyssia76 »

OK, what's the most romantic movie ever? I've been trying to think and it's tough. Yeah there are a million rom-coms but is that really romance? Not only can I not seem to be able to pick a favorite but I can hardly think of any serious (non-rom-com) movies that are truly romantic. At least not without being eye-rollingly, face-palmingly sappy. Prove me wrong, guys.

Gotta go with the wife's favorites for this because I'm a guy, I have no idea how to rank them:
- The English Patient (I fell asleep in the middle so it must be one)
- Out of Africa
- Portrait of a Lady
- Howards' End (sensing a trend here, english romance movies?)
.

My suggestion might be something like Spy Game. Brad Pitt is about to be killed in a Chinese prison because he went off reservation to rescue his girlfriend who he loves so much he created his own special opp to break her out.
