Supposing you are an woman who have been married for many years.The
initial happiness and interest of marriage has faded away.You are left
with much housework everyday.Others judge you not by your accomplishment
but how much you did for your family.You live not for your own love but
for the responsibility for your family.In this case,what will you
do?Submit yourself to life or pursue your love again?
The case applies to Francesca,a 45-years-old housewife,a mother of two.When she was alone at home,an old man called Robert Kincaid came to her home to ask directions.He was a photographer working for National Geographic.And in the following four days,she fell in love with this man,because he gave her much experience that her husband wouldn’t give.She enjoyed the life full of love with Robert Kincaid.
However,their love were destined to come to a tragic ending the moment it started because she already had her family.She refused his invitation to leave with him,for fear that her families would suffer from the whispers of the people here.As a result,they separated sadly.
They didn’t get in touch with each other until five years later after Kincaid died.She was an old woman then.And she also died several years later.
The story seems sad because the sweethearts can’t live together.It leads to a problem:which is more important,love or marriage?With love,Francesca can do whatever she want and travel with Kincaid,living a life in her dream.For marriage,her life is not only for herself:she is a wife and a mother.
It’s difficult to give the absolutelyright answer because different people will give different answers.I think the both are of equal importance.And I think Francesca made the best choice.She pursued her happiness bravely when it came to her.She invited Kincaid to her house ,drinking,having supper,dancing,walking,talking,kissing and making love.It’s what her normal life couldn’t offer and what she badly wanted.She was more of an ordinary housewife,because with Kincaid,she was beautiful and free like a young girl.The four days with Kincaid may be the most unforgettable ones in her life.Whenever she remembered it,she would be satisfied with the love.She would be reminded that she deserves to love and to be loved.And that’s the best gift for a woman.
But love has more deeper and richer meanings.It includes the love for a family.In other words,it means responsibility.Though difficult,she made the decision to continue her formal life. The loss is that she would suffer for the rest of her lifetime.Maybe you will conclude that the traditional ethics destroyed people’s happiness. But I don’t think it’s what the writer wants to tell us.On the one hand,these ethics seem rigid,while on the other hand,it ensures the happiness of the majority.
Francesca didn’t go with Kincaid the last day they met,which left a big regret in the rest of their lifetime.Let’s think of another ending.:Francesca decided to go with Kincaid that day and they traveled to places they wanted.Maybe most people would feel released because the lovers lived happily together.However,I don’t think so.If Francesca had decided to go with Kincaid,what would happen next?They might be happy in the beginning.But they might start to feel bored when the time went by.Because they would find the shortcomings of each other when they get used to their new life.Everything that had seemed interesting would lose its interest finally.And as the saying goes:Marriage is the grave of love.Because when love is involved in the hardship of live,it’s difficult for it to remain new. Only incomplete love can be romantic.
And I think it may be the best ending of love.Although Kincaid and Francesca had to separate forever,they still have the romantic four days,which they will treasure forever.The love between them shed light on the boring life of Francesca and give Kincaid who lead a vagrant life some support.They had got what they need badly in the four days.And I think the love itself was the best gift that they could give to the other.Love is not a result,but a process.We all live in the past.Love is short and hard to keep.We take a minute to know someone,one hour to like someone,and one day to love someone,but the whole life to forget someone.
Let’s focus on the other theme of the story:marriage.In marriage,the initial love gradually turned into family affections.The relationship between both sides is more of moral consideration.You will live a life like the one when you live with your parents.Family affections are not like love.It means responsibility and obligation.You can’t only consider your happiness,and you have to sacrifice frequently.
But each person needs love and deserves loving.So after you get married,remember to offer your love to your honey like you used to.Morality is used to keep the happiness of a family,and love is the tool to keep the happiness between a couple.
The movie is not only about Harry and Sally. It includes interviews with
old married couples they stay together for many years, never abandon,
although experience is different, everyone can not escape to the word
"meet". A few old couple quite lovely, some long time not say a word,
some say one is the concluding speech. The film along with many couples
is very special and interesting. It’s the mirror of the story. The
director used several couples’s love, marriage processing and finally
Harry and Sally review end the whole film punctuates the whole story.
the whole film gives us natural feeling, also with a relaxed quiet and
grace. The movie all about Harry and Sally is simple. More than two
people can tell us universal message about love and life.
The movie agreed the question about “men and women cannot be friends”, Harry’s answer is “no man can be friends with a woman he finds attractive, he always wants to have sex with her.” This saying was disapproved of Sally. And they departed from each other unhappily. Five years later, they met again, at the airport. At that time, they all met their life partners, and this made Harry change his mind that man and woman could be friends when they all had their heart partners. After Harry had commented at this topic, his final conclusion is because of the sex, man and woman could not be friend, which made sally detested again. Another five years past, Harry and Sally both lost their life partners, and became friends to do the events between friends, such as eating dinner, talking their load on their minds and so on. They became friends without sex in the way. But when they had sex, they departed from each other, most the reason is Harry’ s theory: man and woman cannot be friend, because the sex part always gets in the way. However love is coming around them. Finally they realized they love each other and got married. The end of the movie proved the word when Harry first sight Sally,“the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.”Can men and women be friends, it’s a very hard question. Harry and 12 years friends 3 mouths lover and a lifetime’s couple tells us there is not really a friendship between men and women. But I've always thought there is. I have male friends, we appreciate each other but we will not become lovers, because friends and boyfriend standards are different.
On a bench in Regen ’s Park， London， on October 7， 1970， a young man studying for MBA degree at London Business School met an Irish girl who first arrived in London。

However， his life trajectory was about to change because of the girl in front of him。
The two of them fell in love at first sight and married a year later。
Normally， they would probably each get a stable job and live a middle-class life day in and day out。
But they think they want more freedom in their life。
As a result， the young couple bought a small car a year later and started an overland journey through Europe and Asia。
Eventually， they crossed the whole Oceania and arrived in Australia。
终极，他们超过大洋洲，来到了澳大尼斯联邦（Commonwealth of Australia）；
Here they met with many other people who want to travel on their own， all of whom are eager to know the details of their travels。
So the couple published a book to share their travel experiences。
In the end， they opened a company that popularized all kinds of travel knowledge and experience and thus became the richest backpackers in the world。
