5 Movies For Those Who Failed in Love


Heartbreaks are hard to deal with, anyone who has been through it can relate to this. Just when you think you can get busy in your life and maybe you will just get over them, there comes a moment when you’re alone and your mind just starts giving you a flashback of your memories. Dealing with heartbreaks alone is really tough, its a little less difficult if you have some one you can talk to and just cry upon.

Movies help us get out through these situations because the story that you see sometimes just connects with you and you can feel the pain, you understand what they were trying to tell you throughout, you learn a thing or two and this is how you get over heartbreaks.

So here are 5 movies for those who failed in love.


City Lights (1931)

‘City Lights’ shows a time and a place that was very hard to cope with, but in spite of all that, happiness was found and life was celebrated. Whenever we go through a tough period, as much as we may dislike it, in the end we will yearn for other people to come closer and provide us comfort. That’s how they get through all the miserable events in this film, and they always figure out a way to find something to laugh about. The ending of this film provides a great message to all those brokenhearted lovers out there. It is by mending our hearts that we give others something to love us for. Forget looks, wealth, and success… it all comes down to the heart, where all that matters lies.


When Harry Met Sally… (1989)

The movie claims that soul mates do exist, and eventually everyone will find theirs. While that may be taking it a little too far, it might be just the kind of motivation someone needs to break off the period of loneliness brought on by heartbreak. This film is like a warm blanket, because of how sweet it is, and it carries this cozy feeling throughout its runtime. It’s one of those movies that you can only truly appreciate if you are completely alone, since the situations that take place feel all the more familiar. Rob Reiner is an incredible director, and it really shows here. One of the greatest films to be made in its genre, ‘When Harry Met Sally…’ will definitely make you laugh and leave an everlasting impression.


Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

most rewatchable filmsWriters Charlie Kaufman, Pierre Bismuth and Gondry show through their film the importance of the events that happen in our life. They are what make us who we are by shaping our ideology, practices and actions. Removing them would mean throwing out moments of our life. Everything that happens to us is something that we will ultimately look back on and cherish, simply because that’s part of how we got here. ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ is one of the greatest films ever made, and it allows one to examine as well as find some value in each one of their own memories and experiences, even the somber ones.


500 Days of Summer (2009)

This film is for anyone looking for a person to relate to and find a sense of optimism in, because as far as its thoughts go, ‘(500) Days of Summer’ argues that one broken relationship is nothing to worry about when there is so much fish in the sea. Life is all about experimenting with chance anyways, so why not do the same with your love life? Our expectations and anticipations often get the better of us and we don’t give life the chance to bring on its surprises. This is the happy note on which ‘(500) Days of Summer’ ends, which I feel is enough to help anyone regain that lost sense of enthusiasm. If it were summer all year long, the grass wouldn’t grow.

Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)

For those out of a relationship, this film may feel extremely relatable, as all the household responsibilities fall upon just one person soon after, and life just generally gets harder to live; but as the son and his father figure out for themselves, as time goes on, life takes upon different streams and gets refreshed once again. The process of this happening is captured very well in the film, and is definitely one of the highlights of it. The film is very sad nearing the end, and it is sure to leave one feeling uneasy and emotional. ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ is a powerful film that gives its reasons as to why it thinks married couples fall apart and how their differences take over the love that they might have had for each other earlier on in an extremely touching manner.
