Love Actually
Sometimes, forlorn lovers say it best when they say nothing at all. For years, Mark (Andrew Lincoln) has unknowingly been in love with his best friend's wife. Once he discovers the truth, he does the only thing he can. He shows up on their doorstep with a boom box posing as Christmas carolers and a stack of cue cards. With her husband just inside, Mark pours his heart out. "Just because it's Christmas (and at Christmas you tell the truth)," the cards read. "To me you are perfect, and my wasted heart will love you until you look like this [shows a picture of a shriveled mummy.]"

As he walks away, Juliet gives him one small kiss. "Enough," he says as she leaves. "Enough now."
In any other movie, this scene could have been an explosion of creepiness. Thankfully, its flawless execution leaves us with one of the most heartbreakingly sweet declarations of love in recent film history.
