The Vow

For anyone who is averse to violent and somber kind of movies, “The vow” is a good pick to watch. The film is a romantic movie based on the real life experience of a married couple. The film was released on February 10, 2012. The cast and crew of the film are:

Produced by: Roger BirnbaumGary Barber,Jonathan Glickman, Paul Taublieb

Directed by: Michael Sucsy

Main cast: Channing TatumRachel McAdams

Dialogue: Abby Kohn, Marc Silverstein, Jason Katims

The storyline goes something like this: The hero (Leo) and heroine (Paige) are married leading a happy life. Leo works in a studio and Paige is an artist. Once on an outing, they meet with an accident. Paige succumbs to coma, coming out of which she loses her memory. She forgets that she is married and thus does not recognize Leo. This leads to a series of events where Leo tries to win his wife back. Meanwhile Paige reconciles with her family who are the ones that she remembers. Whether Paige regains her memory and re-joins with Leo is the story.

I won’t spoil the film for you. I’ll let you discover the entire story on your own. The storyline may seem common enough for all those who have watched enough films with emotional dramas. But trust me, this film is nothing like any other of its kind.

The success of any film is always attributed to the entire crew working on that particular film. But in my opinion, the success of this film can be attributed nearly 75 percent to the dialogue writer of the film. The playscript is woven so beautifully around the scenes that you are completely mesmerized by the exchange of words. Every articulation spell-bounds you in such a manner that watching the movie once would never suffice. The marriage vows exchanged between Leo and Paige are emotionally impacting to such an extent that you fall all over in love with Leo and Paige.


Quoting their vows,

Paige: I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands. To speak when words are needed, and to share the silence when they are not, and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.

Leo: I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I vow to love you and no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other.

As you can see, the script is so poignant that it touches a nerve. The entire screenplay is crafted in a similar manner – a silk thread woven between the scenes to produce the final result that is so stunningly perfect that we cannot find a single flaw in the movie.

The film became such a huge box-office success that it became the sixth romantic film to grab the highest revenue. The total gross income of the movie was estimated to be around $196,114,570. I would rate the film 8.5 on a scale of 10. Don’t forget to watch the movie guys – it is worth every penny of your dime.

“A moment of impact proves potential for change. Has ripple effects far beyond what we can predict- Sending some particles crashing together, making them closer than before. While sending others spinning off into greater ventures, landing them where you’ve never thought you’d find them. That’s the thing about moments like these. You can’t, no matter how hard you try, control how it’s gonna affect you. You just gotta let the colliding particles go where they may. And wait – For the next collision.”
