Roman Holiday and the Love Routine of Casabraca

To be honest, the core plot of Roman Holiday is actually very simple and straightforward today, not to mention that the rhythm of the emotional development of the two people is slightly abrupt and blunt. The charm of the film comes from the charm of the two actors, Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Pike, the charm of the city of Rome, as well as the details of the film and the arrangement of the characters, and finally, there may be the love between the two actors in real life. hopeful but unattainable.
As far as the movie itself is concerned, the setting of the characters is in line with the setting of a typical romantic film. The two people did not have so-called love at the beginning, and there was even a risk of falling apart from each other. From the early encounter between the two characters in Casablanca, to The male protagonist of Roman Holiday hopes to use the female protagonist to make a lot of money, and there is a destructive relationship, both explicit and implicit.
Then love finally gave way to something higher, for Casablanca, love gave way to national justice and world peace, and for Roman Holiday, it gave way to reputation, morality and conscience. On this basis, love has become the best thing that can cherish two people, and love has become a trophy and a souvenir. Love wants to make people a better person. Under this situation, whether or not love makes two people come together is not so important.
Third, the details of love are exquisite. The choice of several classic passages during the Roman holiday: the little princess lifts her foot and loses her shoes, the drunk little princess walks around the stairs and does not come upstairs, the princess and the reporter make a pun at the press conference "I believe in the relationship between countries". The relationship is as exciting as the relationship between people" "I believe in the relationship between people", the princess must shake hands with all the reporter friends until she can make a formal mutual introduction with the male protagonist, and the male protagonist finally watches. The princess returned to the palace and turned left, echoing the request of the previous princess twice. These are all very powerful details that can sublimate the theme at once.
These are the three things that romantic films need to do in particular, the character relationship at the beginning (which also involves novelty), the ending of the love at the end (saying love but not just love), and the details in the process (echoing and touching) .
