It’s terrific! — すごい!

昨日はクリスマス・イヴ どんなふうに過ごしましたか!? ラブラブな1日を過ごしたアナタにも、ちょっと寂しかったアナタにも、おすすめの映画を紹介します 観たらきっとキュンとなる、LOVEにあふれた映画です

 If your plan for Christmas is just to vege out1 in front of television, here’s a special recommendation: Love Actually.

 It’s all about love. Different stories of love, not necessarily love stories, are told in parallel2, interwoven3 and blended4 into the one whole movie to make a point that “love actually is all around5“. Indeed, there’s love between husband and wife, or a boy and a girl, or father and son, a writer and his housekeeper, an aging rock singer and his agent, or even there’s one between the prime minister and his admin6.

 Background music is also great, carefully matched to the scenes in which they’re played. If you know the songs, the movie would be twice more enjoyable.

 And the word I’ve chosen to learn today is very simple and easy: “terrific7“. You’ll hear this word a few times throughout the movie. Instead of saying, it’s great, it’s wonderful, it’s excellent, you can say it’s terrific. Instead of saying she’s great, she’s beautiful, she’s stunning8, you can say she’s terrific. And believe me, this movie is terrific!





It’s terrific!
