A little chaos

Swoon alert! When we say romance, you say… Paris. Although released in 2014, this romantic drama takes place in Versailles – just outside Paris – in the 17th Century. Two artists are bound to work on the huge project of building a garden for King Louis XIV’s Versailles Palace. They get romantically involved, but will their love hold up?

House of Flowers (La casa de las Flores)

This telenovela – or Latin American soap – revolves around a family-run flower shop in Mexico. Every episode is named after a flower – episode 1: Narcissus (symbol of lies), episode 2: Chrysanthemum (symbol of pain), episode 3: Lily (symbol of freedom) and so on. Expect lots of drama, secrets and, of course: lots of flowers! Delight yourself and your Valentine with the antics of the De la Mora family on this day of love.

American Beauty

Everyone who watched American Beauty will agree on one of the most iconic scenes: Lester’s imagination of Angela laying in a massive pile of Rose petals. Did you know that this classic Rose petal scene often served as an inspiration to others? The filmmakers of the Dutch film ‘Soof’ even recreated it with a big pile of vegetables (!). Are red Roses your favourite? Then watch American Beauty closely and you will notice them in almost every scene of the film.
