“In The Admirer, veteran director Vitaly Melnikov masterfully tells the story of Anton Chekhov.  Loosely based on a true story, the movie transports viewers to the 19th century to meet this literary giant through the eyes of a woman named Lidia Avilova. The author of several stories published in the popular press, she is often mentioned as one of Chekhov’s many love interests. Romantic, moving, tragic and humorous, and true to the Chekhovian style, these two passionate people, endowed with a heightened sense of duty, cannot seem to find a way out of their existential impasse. Will they find a solution to the burdens that destiny has placed in their paths?” – EuroChannel

Beloved Sisters (2014): Set during the German Enlightenment, BELOVED SISTERS is a gorgeous, sweeping romantic drama that depicts the lives of two bold young women and their unconventional joint romance with one of classical romantic literature’s most celebrated figures: Friedrich Schiller.

Beloved Sisters, Courtesy of Music Box Films

“The two actresses navigate the emotional complexity of their roles with quicksilver intuition and what seems like near-bottomless empathy. They make the sisters full individual creations who are nevertheless inextricably bound to each other with the aim of (among other things) making it practically impossible for the viewer to choose a “side.” It’s more their doing than Graf’s that one believes that Schiller could be entirely in love with both of the women.” – Glenn Kenny for Roger Ebert

“An epic story of mismatched love shaped in the most intimate terms, the Ingmar Bergman-scripted “The Best Intentions” packs a sustained emotional wallop that lightens its three-hour span. Story spans 10 crucial years in the relationship of Henrik Bergman (Samuel Froler) and Anna Akerblom (Pernilla August), from their first meeting in 1909 to the early summer of 1918. Costuming and production design are both richly detailed.” – Variety

Decameron Nights (1953): In the 14th century, famous writer Giovanni Boccaccio (Louis Jourdan) returns to Florence, Italy, to woo beautiful noblewoman Fiametta (Joan Fontaine). Although Fiametta rejects Giovanni’s attentions, he wins an audience by promising to tell her an original story. Relating a lively tale of a Spanish pirate, Giovanni then spins numerous other tales that Fiametta criticizes as mockery. After Giovanni challenges her to respond in kind, the pair flirts, trying to outdo each other in tall tales.

“Boccaccio spins three tales of illicit romance involving a trio of medieval husbands and wives. All three tales feature Jourdan as the romantic male lead and Joan Fontaine — spruced up in a collection of bright costumes — as the misunderstood and mistreated women of the tales. The first story concerns the bored housewife, of a middle-aged husband, who willingly jumps into the arms of a roustabout. The second tale tells the story of a husband who is highly suspicious of his wife’s fidelity and the wife’s circumspect way of proving her virtue to her husband. The third story is an ineffectual lark about a wife who fools her indifferent husband into demonstrating his proper marital role.” – Rotten Tomatoes

December Bride (1991): Set in early 20th-century rural Northern Ireland, December Bride is based on a novel by Sam Hanna Bell. It tells a melancholy tale of a spirited woman who – after becoming romantically involved with two brothers – rejects social and religious constraints to live her own independent life.

“This period drama set (in 1909) in Northern Ireland tells the story of Sarah (Saskia Reeves), a young woman born into poor circumstances in a devoutly Presbyterian family. Sarah and her mother Martha (Brenda Bruce) are hired to work as housekeepers by a widowed farmer, Mr. Echlin (Geoffrey Golden), who raises potatoes and sheep with his two sons, Frank (Ciaran Hinds) and Hamilton (Donal McCann). When Mr. Echlin dies in a boating accident, Martha leaves the farm and returns to her cottage, but Sarah stays behind, opting to work for Frank and Hamilton on her own terms, and takes both brothers as lovers… Director Thaddeus O’Sullivan won the Silver Rosa Camuna Award at the 1990 Bergamo (Italy) Film Festival.” – Mark Deming, Rovi

His Wife’s Diary (2000): A tragic story of love and loneliness – this is the unknown life of the great Russian writer Ivan Bunin. The confused love story that involved Bunin, his wife Vera, the young poet Galina Plotnikova, opera singer Marga Kovtun and literary man Leonid Gurov. A work of great honesty and piercing psychology.

His Wife's Diary, Courtesy Studio Rock

“1933 Nobel Prize winner Ivan Alekseevich Bunin is the subject of this Russian biopic, originally screened at the 2000 Karlovy Vary Film Festival. Andrey Smirnov portrays the writer, whose unabashedly bohemian lifestyle caused somewhat of an uproar in Europe and Russia in the years leading up to World War II. When the film opens, Bunin is married to the browbeaten Vera, and feels the need to take up a live-in lover — the beguiling poetess Galia. The romantic triangle becomes more of a trapezoid when Lionya, a fan of the writer, turns up on his doorstep and eventually moves in with the motley crew. When Galia leaves Ivan for a nightclub singer, however, their lives appear to be changing for the worse — an emotional state exacerbated by the escalation of political conflict in Europe.” – Michael Hastings, Rovi

Beautiful young widow Lady Susan Vernon visits to the estate of her in-laws to wait out the colourful rumours about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst ensconced there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and a future for her eligible but reluctant daughter, Frederica. In doing so she attracts the simultaneous attentions of the young, handsome Reginald DeCourcy, the rich and silly Sir James Martin and the divinely handsome, but married, Lord Manwaring, complicating matters severely.

“he bones of the story are likely familiar to fans of Austen’s much-loved books – a bunch of mostly well-bred society folks hang out on sprawling estates, gently jab at each other with the neatly placed barb, frequently and frenetically fall in love and still manage to tap into weirdly reliable bits of human nature – but “Love & Friendship” happily bucks romantic traditions and goes all in on the drama of social interaction.” – IndieWire

The Marquise of O (1976): A story of virtue and an epic tale of mistaken identity: A German Marquise has to deal with a pregnancy she cannot explain and an infatuated Russian Count.

The Marquise of O, Courtesy New Line Cinema

“It’s a comedy of manners (early 19th century), precisely observed, romantic in mood. The German actors—none of whom I’ve seen before—perform with the kind of grace I associate with stylish Restoration comedy, though the comedy here is of an entirely different sensibility… Characters don’t talk from the head but from the heart, and one of the things that makes “The Marquise of O. . . .” much more than simply likable is our awareness that their feelings are earnestly—possibly fatally—sincere.” – New York Times

On the Black Hill (1988): This isn’t so much about romance, as it is about the loss of romance, between a couple. It is also about the romance of a place and its people. Starring Bob Peck and Gemma Jones as an embittered married couple, the film charts their efforts to raise identical twin brothers in the turbulent early years of the 20th century. Sharing a unique bond, the brothers journey through eight decades of life, death and hardship together, all the while tied to the land on which they were raised. The epic sweep of the film takes in two world wars, exploring themes of nationalism, class, community, faith and pacifism. Featuring stunning photography and steeped in authentic rural imagery, On the Black Hill has been described as one of the best British films of the 1980s.

On the Black Hill, Courtesy BFI

“Like the 1982 Bruce Chatwin novel, on which it is based, the movie could never have existed without Thomas Hardy. These are Hardyesque country people rooted to a natural world that is less than benevolent. They are bound to one another in relationships that are part emotional necessity, part torture. Sheepshearing is the least of their problems. In 1895, Mary Latimer, a minister’s daughter played by Gemma Jones, marries a proud, rough-mannered farmer named Amos Jones (Bob Peck). There is no question that passion as well as desperation figures into Mary’s choice, and no surprise for viewers when Amos starts smashing dishes on the floor and criticizing the way his wife folds napkins as “very posh.” – New York Times

Parade’s End (2012): A British aristocrat becomes caught up in an era of social upheaval and the onset of World War I in this compelling five-part HBO miniseries. At the center of the story is a man’s effort to remain faithful in a loveless marriage, when he has found true love. Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall, Roger Allam and Adelaide Clemens head up a superb cast.

Parade's End, Courtesy of Mammoth Screen, BBC

“Benedict Cumberbatch plays a brainy aristocrat and Rebecca Hall a promiscuous woman who corners him into marriage. Like “Downton Abbey,” which has navigated some of the same territory, the world of “Parade’s End” is beautifully filmed with period detail. But “Parade’s End” is a more focused and darker story than “Downton,” as it gazes into its characters’ twisted souls and their self-contradictory attitudes. The viewer needs to embrace the inconsistencies of human nature and the way one person can be both heroic and hateful.” – Boston Globe

But when she is diagnosed with cancer, deeper feelings surface, and Lewis’ faith is tested.

“As the autumnal romance that coaxes Anthony Hopkins out of his genteel shell, inviting the audience to join him in a spectacularly good cry, “Shadowlands” actually has lots of old-fashioned virtues to recommend it. Here is Mr. Hopkins giving an amazingly versatile and moving performance, shifting the light in those knowing blue eyes to reveal endless shadings between delight and sorrow. “Shadowlands” offers a gratifyingly soapy love story, handsomely told.” – New York Times

Stealing Heaven (1988): Based on the novel by Marion Meade, this costume drama retelling of the doomed 12th century romance of Abelard and Heloise was directed by Clive Donner. Abelard (Derek de Lint) is a philosophy professor at the cathedral school of Notre Dame. Considered the greatest teacher in Paris at a time when professors of philosophy are required to be chaste, Abelard is a champion of reason and a man of the people. Despite what it could mean to his career and standing, however, Abelard falls in love with a student, Heloise (Kim Thomson), an upper class teenage girl raised in a convent and possessing an insatiably curious intellect, along with a rebellious attitude toward the second-class status of women in her society.

“Told from Heloise’s point of view, STEALING HEAVEN unfolds with the pulpy fervor of a classic bodice-ripping romance, but it’s an uncommonly well-crafted one. Veteran director Clive Donner displays a sure hand with Bryant’s complex script, making evocative use of Yugoslavian locations and a first-rate cast. De Lint is charismatic and compelling in his portrayal Abelard’s interior struggle between the spirit and the flesh, and Thomson is equally effective as the provocative Heloise.” – TV Guide
