De fiecare data cand un eveniment anume se iveste in peisajul monoton al cotidianului, incerc sa ii gasesc un corespondent cinefil. Uneori reusesc sa fac ceva care ma face sa zambesc. Nu neaparat pentru inspiratie, ci pentru ca atunci cand vad rezultatul final, arata exact cum mi-am imaginat. Anul trecut, in aceeasi perioada a anului, facusem un popas primejdios al iubirii. Mai exact, facusem o selectie a celor mai nebunesti povesti de iubire din filme. La propriu. Cele mai atipice idile, impartite in comedii si drame, au primit locul lor intr-un top animat de pasiune si declaratii.
Anul acesta am vrut sa fac ceva diferit si alesesem altceva. Initial voiam sa fac un top al celor mai inspirate discursuri de la nunti, dar curand mi-am dat seama ca nu prea cunosc multe astfel de scene si cele deja alese, nu erau pe placul meu si ca erau prea putine.
Am reinventat ideea si am ajuns la o frenezie de momente dulci sau amarui, dar toate ghidate de impulsul unui entuziasm. Am gandit astfel sa adun laolalalta cererile in casatorie din filme. Asta da, provocare! Desigur, pe unele mi le-am amintit usor, dar altele nu le puteam plasa in vreun film. Dupa ceva munca de cercetare, am facut un TOP 30. Am inclus aici, asa cum o sa observati si cateva declaratii care nu sunt chiar o cerere asa cum o stim noi, dar care spre final conduc la casatorie. Sper sa va placa, iubitori de filme, devoratori de pasiuni teatrale si consumatori de frumos si romantism!

And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve.
