At this time of year, we always have a little time to watch a Christmas movie. but which one to choose?
Follow the life of several couples and people during the Christmas period, from the has-been rocker to the young couple, passing through the solitary writer and the British Prime Minister.
Admit it, I’m not the only one throwing myself on the 8648th rerun of this great classic of December 24 romantic comedies. A choral film that has been delighting hearts since 2003. It doesn’t matter if Alan Rickam dares to cheat on Emma Thompson with his secretary and this hyper sexist storyline in America: I put all my feminist convictions aside before throwing myself body and soul into this film.
Because Love Actually is also a Hugh Grant in top form that we are still waiting for at 10 Downing Street, a rock’n’roll touch thanks to Billy Mack and beautiful stories of love and friendship for all generations. Worship we tell you!
> The Holiday (2006)
American Amanda and Briton Iris swap homes for the Christmas holidays, just to escape from their everyday life
Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Jack Black. It’s just a big yes from my side! And I think I like this romantic comedy even more than Love Actually!
> Bridget Jones (2001)
Single and blue flower, Bridget Jones, is looking for the ideal man. She notes her daily life, her questions and her romantic setbacks in her diary.
Because it was after all Mark Darcy who launched the fashion for the ugly Christmas sweater, right? In short, (almost) everyone knows Bridget Jones and therefore knows that it is a romantic comedy not to be missed.
A good Christmas movie is the one you watch at 20, 30 or 40 with the same joy as when you were 10. So obviously it’s a question of generation.
> Les Bronzés go skiing (1979)
You simply cannot miss it.
> Santa Claus is garbage (1982)
” – A mop ! It’s great Thérèse, I’m delighted, listen…
– No stone, it’s a vest.
– Oh yes ! Ah bah of course, ah bah and then of course it’s a vest: there are larger holes for the arms. So… I’m delighted, Therese. I am… Really I am delighted!
– And color point of view because… I had thought of a pretty shades of navy blue as I know you like, then I said to myself in these tones, it will change.
– You are absolutely right, Thérèse, because gray and burgundy go with everything, so you can’t go wrong.
– And then it’s something that isn’t common and that you won’t see with everyone.
– But I hope so, Thérèse, I hope so. Listen, if you only knew what’s good: I was still thinking last night that I needed something to take out the trash cans. »
> Gremlins (1984)
We surely laugh about it now, but it was still a bit traumatic for the kids at the time…
> Mom, I missed the plane (1990)
We agree that Kevin McCallister is a budding psychopath, right?
> Edward Scissorhands (1990)
The Burtonian style lends itself equally well to Christmas and Halloween.
> The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
No wonder the “emo” fashion arrived in the 2000s when we know that we were fed with this film…
> The Toy Race (1996)
This film is actually super annoying but Schwarzenegger was in all the kids’ movies of the 90s, we couldn’t miss it!
> The Grinch (2000)
Just for Jim Carrey, always for Jim Carrey.
The movie Sissi is THE movie to watch at Christmas.
