This is a brilliant list, which I have been working my way through since the start of the year. The title "Top 100 Best Romantic films" is misleading though - it should be call "Top 100 films about love and relationships". This is not a list of light or breezy movies about how wonderful relationships are, it is a 360 degree review of all the good and bad things that happen in relationships from their start to their end.


Highly recommended, but don't expect to be smiling at the end of every film.

With respect, this list is hugely pretentious. Brief Encounter and Casablanca at 1 and 2 respectively, yet no place in the entire 100 for Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, Addicted to Love, or Untamed Heart? Movies like this are seemingly too low-brow to be included in the list, but they're massively popular, and *relevant*, whereas movies like 'L'Atalante', 'Letter to an Unknown Woman'; 'i know where I'm going' etc have practically zero relevance today, and are probably included to give the list some kind of credibility. Absolute joke list IMO.

Some of my favorite movies are on here but not my favorite, Pride and Prejudice, which of course I think it should be on there. And a lot of the movies I have never heard of.
