Movies of the Month: Valentine Day's selection.

Dear all,

Isn't it better to have loved and lost than to never had loved at all?
For loving is : facing complicated situations, , suffering from regrets and fearing to go astray from your daily routine as the Librarian's three selected films show it.






It's Complicated: Jake (Alec Baldwin), a divorced lawyer, married to a younger wife has a son, Pedro still feels affectionate to ex-wife, Jane (Meryl Streep), who is owner of a bakery shop.

When brought together at a family event, the two of them find themselves oddly attracted to each other after ten years of divorce which brings itself back to their own city and disrupts their personal lives.

But it gets complicated when Jane eventually falls in love with her architect (Dean Martin).

After an absence of two years, Charles Wills (Van Johnson) returns to his favorite bar and reminisces about his love affair with Helen Ellswirth (Elizabeth Taylor)at the end of World War II. Charles was an army Lieutenant writing for Stars and Stripes at the time and she the daughter of a one-time rich man who has always lived a life of luxury.

They are a study in contrasts - he is level-headed and serious while she is fun loving and carefree - but they eventually marry and Charles continues as a civilian reporter while writing the great American novel. His lack of success as a writer weighs heavily on him but his fun-loving wife parties on and the birth of their daughter won't be of any relief.

Over two decades ago, Emma (Tilda Swinton) left Russia to follow Tancredi Recchi, the man who had proposed to her. Now a member of a powerful industrial Milanese family, she is the respected mother of three.

But Emma, although not unhappy, feels confusedly unfulfilled. One day Antonio, a talented chef and her son's friend and partner, makes her senses kindle. It does not take long before she embarks on a passionate affair with the sensuous young man.
