its probably more ” Christmas” than “winter” but Love Actually might help.

The Santa Clause (Tim Allen)? I’m especially thinking of the North Pole scenes, I think it is in the 2nd movie.

Die Hard.

 

 

Haha, that’s totally not what you’re after. Classic winter movies, “It’s a Wonderful Life”, although that’s probably more Christmassy, along with “White Christmas”; I also think “Bell, Book and Candle” is pretty wintery, and for some reason “Meet me in St Louis”, although that covers a few seasons, I just remember it being snowy.

 

“While You Were Sleeping” – yes it’s set at Christmas, but more wintery romance I think. “Doctor Zhivago”, “Anna Karenina”, “Going My Way” has some wintery scenes, but covers a long period of time, so there’s obvs some summery bits as well.

 

 

Ooh, man! Can’t believe I forgot this one – “The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship”! It’s a beautiful little story, claymation, if you can find it. Based on a Russian Folk Story, and it’s dead sweet, and has some beautiful wintery images.

Any adaptations of “The Snow Queen” might be good as well.

My FI and I are getting married in February because our first date was in february. On one of out first dates we went to see “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” which takes places on valentines’s day and has become “our movie” that we watch every year. I think it’s a beautiful interesting movie. It shows how complex relationships are. How in real life you fight and argue and don’t always see eye to eye, but if you really love each other it’s all worth it in the end. That’s my take anyway.

Oh, there’s that awful Renee Zellwegger one as well, “New In Town”, where she moves to Minnesota and it’s all snowy. Along similar lines, “The 5-year Engagement” has that Minnesota section in the middle with lots of snow.

There was that New Year’s Eve film the other year too, wasn’t there, with Michelle Pfeiffer and Zac Efron.

 

“Cool Runnings”? Grasping a bit with that one. Alternatively, that awful made-for-TV Disney Movie “Ice Princess” with too many actresses in it who should know better.

Obviously “Frozen” is coming out this month in the US, based on the Ice Queen. There’s that awful John Cusak one “Serendipity”, which I tried to watch again recently and couldn’t because of reasons.

 

If you’re feeling perverse, “Fargo” is fairly wintery, but maybe not wedding-friendly.

I also really love the stunning tear jerking movie “The Fountain” I know much of it takes place in winter, but I can’t find any good images because google searches just bring up pictures of actual fountains! bah. Anyway, it is really such an incredible movie and if you have never seen it, I highly recommend it. It is open to interpretation, there is quite a bit of symbolism. In the end it is such a beautiful love story about a husband and wife. The wife is a writer with cancer. She is writing a novel about spanish conquistadors searching for the fountain of youth/everlasting life in central America. She fears she won’t finish it and asks her husband to write the ending. Meanwhile, her husband is a research doctor trying desperatelyt to find a cure for his wife’s specific illness. The movie has so many themes of love, life, death. So many times you think, wait is this happening or is this all part of the story of the fountain? Really incredible to see, and inspiring I think.

Okay, I found an image of winter in the movie:
