5.0 out of 5 stars Love Actually is actually good, 16 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Love Actually [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
I love this film and I am not usually the soppy type but no matter how many times I watch it still makes me feel good.

Love Actually covers the tales of eight couples. Unrequited love, lost love, new love, first love, free love and the love between families and friends are all covered. The couples are all interlinked in some way, they may work with each other or be relatives or friends, sometimes they are merely in the same scene but not aquainted. At times incredibly moving, at times very funny, the story has you rooting for the characters and sometimes cringing with frustration at what happens.

Set in the run up to Christmas, the cast are fantastic, Colin Firth (as a cheated on husband), Liam Neeson(as a bereaved father struggling to comfort his son), Emma Thompson (as a let down wife) and Hugh Grant as the British Prime minister (but playing himself as usual). All ably supported by Alan Rickman, Laura Linney (who's story is my favorite), Gregor Fisher and Bill Nighy (as a clapped out old Rockstar). There are also appearances by Martin Freeman, Keira Knightly, Rowan Atkinson, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Andrew Lincoln to name a few. The film moves between characters covering the circumstances of their situations and telling the individual stories of their relationships.

This is not going to be a film that will suit all tastes but I loved it. It's easy to watch, the soundtrack is amazing (I can never listen the The Beach Boys 'God Only Knows' without a tear now) and the feelgood factor is high.
