"There I was, standing there in the church, and for the first time in my whole life I realised I totally and utterly loved one person. And it wasn't the person next to me in the veil. It's the person standing opposite me now... in the rain."
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Isn't life just that sometimes? A cluster of events, and an ultimate crash? I view this film as not only a humorous look into love and circumstance, but, as a humorous look into the daily occurrences we each endure.
Life is a wedding... the planning, the excitement, the beauty, the food, the music, the friends, the family and the love. Life is sometimes just a funeral. The memories, the stories, the remembrance, and the end. When we start to understand that life evolves around more than just experiences, we see that it involves the chance to take a leap into our fears. Can we recall times in our lives where we felt toppled over in humor over a silly plight of love? Were we oblivious?
Someone once told me that weddings are the beginnings to most adventures. I also heard that funerals bring out everyone hormones and many babies are born say 9 months later.
I believe the death of something, whether it be a friendship, a relationship, a love, or a rejection... must encompass some after effect of a new adventure.
Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell star in this film. It was sweet to see the lust of Charles' character, and the identification of his "Miss Right" philosophy of Carrie. It was touching that a man without courage to speak his lover's plight, suddently recurrently runs back into her over and over again at weddings.
Have you met someone that won't escape your life? Have you met someone you keep bumping into? Often at times we can't plan most encounters, when you least expect someone to be there, you most expect yourself to be more confident.
Whether it takes four weddings and a funeral to profess someones love, it should only take one second to realize when you are not in love. It shouldn't take a mis-step to see you've gone too far.
