Who doesn't love a good love story? Whether single or taken, you have to admit they make your heart go pitter-patter (even if they involve heartbreak). If you've got five minutes to spare, you'll definitely want to watch one, or all, of these moving videos. From shorts about the future to animated documentaries, these films will have you crying, smiling, and everything in between.
Splitscreen: A Love Story
Two worlds, one love story. When a guy and a girl wake up in different cities (New York and Paris), they make it their mission to reunite. Shot on a Nokia phone (really!), this short film follows their parallel journeys on airplanes and across bridges to meet. And while you can probably guess how it all ends, you still can't help but smile.
Danny & Annie
Get your tissues ready. This sweet animated film tells the true love story of Danny and Annie, who were together for 27 years. The couple lets us in on their romance, telling stories of their first date, how he would leave her love letters every single morning, and how they dealt with Danny’s last days of cancer.
Watch more love stories after the break!
Though it's set in Paris in the year 2020, this is one video that we can learn from today. We watch as a one guy becomes obsessed with documenting everything with holograms and digital streams (the future Instagrams, if you will) that he can't live in the moment, and loses the one thing that matters to him most.
Shelley and Bill: A Love Story
True love certainly knows no bounds. Originally published on the Washington Post, this video introduces us to Shelley and Bill, who both have mental disabilities. Their love story is unique for many reasons, but at the end of the day, we realize their love is just like any other. Look out for their memorable one-liners like, "A good kiss is like a great sandwich," and, "Living together is a party that doesn't stop."
I Love You
What would it look like if someone put together all the greatest movie clips where actors say "I love you"? Now you can find out! From Beauty and the Beast to Forrest Gump scenes, trust us when we say this one minute and eight seconds of pop culture mashups is well worth your time.
