A Taste of Romance Best Moments to lay the themes – Non Spoilers
In the first face to face encounter they only exchange a few words, but when Sarah goes to ask Gill to lower the volume of the music, it starts to show the “we hated at first sight” theme. That theme continues when they start making pranks to each other.
Gill: “Well, actually is not that bad, this song was Top 40 1986”.
After the first heated argument, Patsy asks Sarah if Gill´s cute, establishing the second element. After all, it´s a romantic comedy.
Gill: “We are not dressed for that place… come on, I´ll buy you an ice cream”.
And there you have the we are from different worlds element.
He is a wiodow and has a daughter who becomes friends with Sarah. So there´s the sadness / sweetness element.
Hannah: “If you do that inside, I´ll tell everybody you kidnapped me”.
Patsy: “He´s cute”
Sarah: “No, he´s a barbarian. He called my Beef Bourgouignon, Beef Stew”
So there´s a little humor too.
Gill plays a lot of eighties music in his place, so,that´s another thing to like about A Taste of Romance.
In conclusion, it has all the elements of a good romantic movie for all the family to enjoy.
