As we speak, September 23, 2023, is the Autumn Equinox … and Fall is certainly within the air as I woke as much as about 65 levels this morning. Autumn is my favourite season as I simply LOVE the crisp Fall air and one way or the other it all the time makes me consider Notting Hill‘s evocative changing-seasons scene by Portobello market. I featured it again in 2010 (linked under), however y’know what, even 24 years after the movie’s launch in 1999, I nonetheless can’t discover a extra excellent seasonal-change sequence.
Per IMDb, the lengthy shot the place Hugh Grant‘s William Thacker walks by Notting Hill’s well-known market throughout summer time, fall, winter, and spring was truly 4 completely different pictures, all filmed on the identical day. CGI morphed Grant seamlessly from one shot to the following. So I believe it warrants an encore right here on FlixChatter, and I discovered a greater video on Vimeo:
Directed by Roger Michell and written by Richard Curtis, Notting Hill is certainly one of my fave rom-coms of all time that I nonetheless rewatch it on occasion. This scene specifically is simply good in exhibiting the passage of time but in addition a sentimental however enjoyable method to evoke Thacker’s damaged coronary heart over dropping his film star love Anna Scott (Julia Roberts). As they typically say in England, this scene is an absolute basic!
