Falling in Love

A good old fashioned tale of, well, falling in love. Nothing much else happens in this movie – in fact nothing much happens full stop, but that’s the beauty of it. Robert De Niro is a electrician riding the train everyday to work, he’s married with a kid – nothing much happening there, then – but one day he clocks Meryl Streep and after a few mornings bottling up his desire for her, he finally plucks up the courage to strike up conversation. They’re both cripplingly aware of their responsibilities at home, but they can’t help themselves and inevitably they, ahem, fall in love. Best scene is the one where they kiss for the first time, and De Niro finally blurts out ‘I love you, I really do’.
