These films are studies of love and relationships in their myriad of forms. Far from being sickly sweet and predictable affairs, contemporary romance can be quirky and revealing. From Wong Kar Wai's fascination with loss and missed opportunities to Gondry's surrealist storytelling in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, there are some great films to explore.
