A Walk to Remember is a 2002 romance film based on the 1999 romance novel with the same name by Nicholas Sparks. The movie was directed byAdam Shankman and produced by Denise DiNovi and Hunt Lowry for Warmer Bors. The novel, written by Sparks, is set in the 1950s while the film is set in present day.

It is a drama that tells us a love story between a young couple. He’s the typical popular guy who’s always in troubles and he falls in love with a studious girl who’s always helping everybody. After passing the best moments of their life she confesses to him that she has leukemia so she’s very sick. Finally he’ll try to make each moment only until the end of her days.

Though the story is charming, sure you’ll cry a lot watching this film if you are a little sensitive.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a 2008 film written and directed by Woody Allen. The stars are Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall.

Two American young women are going to spend their summer holiday in Barcelona. Vicky is sensible and has intention of marrying; Cristina is emotional and is in search of new adventures. In Barcelona, both of them have a strange relationship  with Juan Antonio, a charismatic painter who still supporting a troubled relation with his ex-wife, Maria Elena.

Though it didn’t have a very good review, I think it’s an original film with great actors playing.
