Today’s video is from one of my favorite Christmas movies, Love Actually, which follows several couples as they fall in and out of love. This video is of Jamie and Aurelia. Jamie is an English writer and Aurelia was hired to be his housekeeper while he works on his next book. The problem is that they don’t speak the same language. Aurelia is Brazilian and only speaks Portuguese, which Jamie definitely does not know. This doesn’t stop them from falling in love.
What I love about their relationship is that they did not need to speak the same language to understand each other–not really, although there are a few funny scenes that revolve around them not understanding. The first time I saw the movie, I thought that theirs was a sadly romantic story because I didn’t think they would get a happily ever after. I was so glad to be proven wrong. They, obviously, have a few things to work out, but I think that those two are still happily together 10 years later.
