Romance

Por conta do dia dos namorados em várias partes do mundo (por que afinal no Brasil é em junho!?! Para não cair no carnaval?), no Cinematical rolaram vários posts de colaboradores citando cenas românticas favoritas de diversos filmes: Desencanto, O Pescador de Ilusões, Procura-se Amy, Antes do Pôr do Sol, Moulin Rouge!, Amores Expressos, Clube da Luta, entre outros.
Dentre os textos o que mais gostei foi sobre Um Romance do Outro Mundo. Por quê? Alan Rickman, oras. Também já tive um período de big crush por ele (assim como algumas das minhas amigas), a fixação passou, mas os suspiros serão eternos. E não, minha amiga do texto, a coisa do nariz não é só com você.In a recent Twitter conversation, I joked with a male friend that, were he able to conjure up celebrities out of thin air, I’d appreciate his sending Alan Rickman to my house for the weekend. My friend was surprised, and said that he thought I was being deliberately perverse — but an avalanche of female Twit-peeps leapt on board to passionately assure him that, oh no, Alan Rickman is the stuff of many a woman’s fantasy, thankyouverymuch. That voice, that accent, those eyes, that nose. Okay, maybe the nose thing is just me. But seriously — Alan Rickman is dreamy.
For most of us with this particular fixation, the initial infection came by way of the the 1990 film Truly, Madly, Deeply, directed by Anthony Minghella. It’s the story of a woman named Nina (Juliet Stevenson), who’s consumed with grief following the death of her live-in lover, Jamie (Rickman), a dead-sexy boho cellist. Sleepwalking through her job, distractedly dealing with the myriad problems that beset her run-down flat, Nina can’t get past her loss — until, one day, Jamie shows up again. He may be a ghost, he may be a figment of her imagination, but for a brief period Nina gets to be with her love again, and all is bliss. Until, of course, she starts to remember all of the small things about him that were far less than perfect … and as she lets go of her idealized version of their relationship, she prepares to re-enter the real world again.
Younger viewers who mainly know him as Snape may barely recognize the mustachioed fellow singing a song (!) in the embedded clip. Even those who love their Romantic Rickman with a more gloomy flavor (see: Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility) may be surprised to see how positively jaunty he is here. And don’t even get me started on Hans Gruber from Die Hard. Oh, and Blow Dry — have you seen Blow Dry? Did I mention that Alan Rickman is dreamy?

Nota: Deixe-me mencionar a minha cena romântica favorita: final de Kill Bill Volume 2, toda aquela conversa da Kiddo com Bill. Acho aquilo lindo e choro toda vez. Nunca esqueço do fim de semana que estreiou o filme aqui no Brasil (com seis meses de atraso, para variar) e as pessoas sabendo que eu já devia ter assistido vinham me perguntar se havia gostado e eu sempre dando a mesma resposta de que tinha achado lindo e romântico, é lógico que ninguém levava a sério. Mas é verdade, aquilo tudo é incrivelmente romântico.
