Exactly, and that's why they cannot make true romantic movies any more, like e.g. An Affair to remember (another of my favorites), because in nowadays movies, there is no mystery to love any more... ("Mystery" in a positive way, like a holy secret)

Exactly, Irapuato I remember when I watched this movie for the first time as a kid, I wanted to become a nun, too (though I secretly hoped that she would return to her doctor at the end of the movie ...) I love movies from the 50s it seems to me a completely different, better, time than ours, as if the people were very different from us nowadays...

Audrey Hepburn--love her movies!
