10 tragic films to binge watch over Valentine's Day

This list is surely heartbreaking and some might be considered not so much of a love story, but relationships are complicated, right?

Prepare those tissues and binge on these 10 love stories for the ones who prefer a couch weeping Valentine's day.

1. Brokeback Mountain

 

True and passionate love emerges between two guys, Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist. But it was a 1963 Wyoming and they had to live their affair in secret, seeing each other every now and then at a job taking care of sheeps in the mountain. The pressure of society and self repression cause heartbreaking and tear dropping moments that will make you care for the two cowboys.

Best Love Quote: "I wish I knew how to quit you"- Jack

2. Moulin Rouge

I'm not very fond of musicals but this movie has a special something that stands out. Is a tragically doomed love story staged in the late 1890s, involving a bohemian writer and a beautiful courtesan whose rushed romance gets frustrated in between gorgeous musical sets.

Best Love Quote: "Come what may, I will love you until my dying day" - Christian and Satine

3. The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

A side of the great main plot of the reverse aging condition of the main character, the movie it's about life chances and regrets, and also about love. Self reproaches, missing opportunities and the idea of living a "good life" are the subjects of the coming and going relationship between Daisy and Benjamin, it makes you wonder if they will ever be together and for how long will time allow that to happen.

Best Love Quote: "I wanna remember us just as we are now" - Daisy 

4. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

This sci-fi/romance film by Michel Gondry will tear your heart apart. Having completly removed the memories of someone is quite a big step, dealing with the idea must be a difficult task, but literally arguing with your ideas and memories really takes a step further. Relationship issues of most couples are reflected on Clementine and Joel, the anxiety of loss is cleverly achieved in this awesome film.

Best Love Quote: "I can't remember anything without you" - Joel

5. Somewhere in time

Speaking of time as an obstacle of love, here is an oldie tear jerker. This film takes advantage of the time travel paradox to create a touching and tragical love story.

Best Love Quote: "Please, don't leave. You have no idea how far I've come to be with you" - Richard
