"you're the only wife I've got or ever will have. You are my whole existence, and I will love you until my very last breath."
How lovely was this movie?! I finally watched it. I have seen a lot of period pieces (and imagined myself in a lot of period pieces...did i type that, oh, i'm sorry, you weren't supposed to know that). What I loved most about their relationship in this movie was the way they interacted after they were married: it was so real. I loved when he tells her "For pity's sake, smile, woman. Anyone would think we had quarreled. " If you are married, or even just a part of a family, for that matter, you know you have to just do this sometimes.
And I think the part that choked me up most was one of the final scenes (possible spoiler alert but not really). It was the ending when it flashed across the screen that Albert died at age 42 and Victoria had his clothes laid out every day till she died at 81. That, is romantic love and that is all at once heartbreaking and beautiful.
