“Love Actually” 

“Love Actually” stands out from other romantic comedies because of its intelligent sense of humour and the message that it conveys. The action takes place at Christmas time and shows us the different aspects of love. Several stories which seem to be totally unrelated at first, turn out to have something in common and are linked in an amazing and astonishing way.

Charming as usual, Julia Roberts plays her character excellently. And handsome Richard Gere becomes a real gentleman. Ideal for lonely evenings, not very demanding, but very romantic.
