H & M but not as we know it_

Bread & Butter, Gin & Tonic, First & Class – some pairings are just perfect. No reason for concern or to doubt their companionship. Harold and Maude is one partnership that just shouldn’t work. I remember the first time I saw it, recoiling at the idea of a teenager having sex with a 79 year old woman. It made The Graduate seem like child’s play, haha. At the same time the film was so beautifully done and the plot so engaging that I couldn’t help falling for its oddball charm. It sends out a positive message – love has no boundaries and it shouldn’t. I don’t want to give too much away just in case you haven’t seen it but its one of those films that makes you look at life in a totally different way. Thought-provoking. Cinema the way it should be. Risk-taking done with elegance and subtlety. Great soundtrack too by Cat Stevens. Harold & Maude – an unusual love story for Valentine’s Day. Snuggle up and enjoy_
