Romantic Dramas
Romantic dramas include themes of Love, emotions,
passion, and affections between two individual characters,
which is normally strained through a dilemma/ obstacle in
their lives, which is a clear break in the narratives
equilibrium. For example a forced marriage, family
disputes or one of the couple being unfaithful. This is due
to the conventions in dramas.
Slow music is often employed in the film to indicate the
emotional mood of a scene, which creates an atmosphere
of greater intensity for the couple. This emphasizes to the
audience the romantic feeling between the two
individuals.
As in all deep close relationships between two people,
tensions of day-to-day life and the temptation of infidelity
enter into the plots of romantic Films. Romance Films often
explore the essential and well-known themes of love such
as love at first sight, young with older love and a forbidden
love, which help build the plot of the Films' storyline.
Romance drama films serve as a great escape for viewers
who require romantic fantasies for a person or couple who
can use the storyline as inspiration to help work out their
difficulties and find their 'happy ever after'.
In romance Films the subject of overcoming difficulties in
the relationship is often implied with a reunion and a final
kiss. The development of romantic relationships may occur
over the entire of film and a number of different
characters may be intertwined in a romantic storyline in
different romantic ways.
The conclusion of a romantic drama typically does not
indicate whether or not a relationship between the two
main characters will occur and how long it will last. It

normally ends with the individuals being happy together


at that time.
