We watch some movies and say to ourselves: "This only happens in the movies!" In fact, no. These films about love are based on real events. Look and find out what true love is like!
This story is familiar to you from the Disney studio cartoon: the main character of the film is Princess Pocahontas. A girl who actually existed and who managed not only to be presented to the court of King James I of England, but also to convince him that England needs to establish peaceful relations with the indigenous population of America.
As for the novel of Pocahontas with the sailor John Smith – historians have doubts about this. But we want to believe, because in this film they are very real.
Anna Leonuens taught English and culture for several years at the court of the Siamese King Mongkut in the 1860s and left two books of memoirs. On their basis, the American Margaret Landon wrote the novel "Anna and the King of Siam", based on which this film was made.
Unfortunately, in reality, the love of Anna and the king did not end with a happy ending: the king could not marry a foreigner, and Anna did not want to become the fortieth wife in the harem at all. Anna left Siam.
Henry has a rare luck: he meets the girl of his dreams, on the same day he manages to achieve mutual sympathy! However, there is one nuance in this story that almost ruined a great love: Lucy suffers from memory loss and the next morning after meeting does not remember Henry. But the main character does not give up and decides to win Lucy's love every day, even if it takes a lifetime.
The real hero of this story does not have such a problem: he met his wife Michelle Philpots long before the accident. But Michelle really forgets her husband every night and wakes up every morning in full confidence that it is 1994. Her husband reminds her of himself every day with the help of notes and photos, but he does not have to win her over again.
Kim and Krikit Carpenter had been married for only ten weeks when their marriage was broken up by a car accident. When she woke up, Krikit couldn't remember her own husband. After a medical examination, it turned out that the previous 18 months had simply been erased from the memory of Krikit. It was at this time that she met her future husband and fell in love with him.
The doctors did not give any predictions as to whether this amnesia was reversible, but Kim did not want to accept that his wife had forgotten him, and began to take care of her again. Now the couple is still together, they have two children. The memory of those 18 months never returned to Krikit. In the movie" The Oath", the characters of Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams are not called Kim and Krikit, but Leo and Paige. Everything else in the story is real.
Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was only 20 years old when she married the most famous artist in Mexico, Diego Rivera. Diego was rich and had a penchant for debauchery, and Frida had a short temper. Both of them became famous all over the world, both had many lovers and mistresses. But they could not stop loving each other.
The Civil War, two revolutions and the collapse of the Russian Empire. And against this background – the love of two people: Alexander Vasilyevich Kolchak and Anna Timireva. Konstantin Khabensky and Elizabeth Boyarskaya brilliantly performed the roles of two lovers who were unlucky enough to meet each other at a time when the world was collapsing around them.
The film tells the love story of Charles Dickens and Ellen Ternan. They met in 1857, when he was 45 and she was 18. The age difference did not prevent them from loving each other until death separated them.
The original title of the film is "Love Kills". An epic drama about the life, death and love of Sid Vicious, the bassist of the legendary Sex Pistols. The seventies, rock and roll and a heroin paradise for two, from which neither Sid nor Nancy returned to the world of the living. This is a movie about love, which could not be, because there is no love with drugs: there is either love, or drugs, or love for drugs. Sid and Nancy really loved each other. Sincerely and insanely. To the death.
Seven Academy Awards, including for the best film, the best work of the operator and decorators. Meryl Streep and Robert Radford in the main roles.
In 1914, the writer Karen Blix married her cousin, the Swedish hunter and writer Bror von Blixen-Finecke. The couple moved to Africa to manage a coffee plantation, but the marriage soon broke up.
