Ten Passionate Movie Kisses

From Here to Eternity


Kisses can be sweet like candy, or so passionate that your body goes up in flames.  Those are truly amazing and when you see this type of kiss on film, and can almost feel that it’s you in that fiery embrace, then you know that it is one spectacular passionate movie kiss.

Sigh…I love this type of film.  Take me out of my reality and let me dwell in a world of fantasy where I’m the star, and my lover stares deep into my eyes, and presses his hard 6 pack abs against me (he also has that V thing at his hips happening), and  kisses me as if he would die without it.  Sigh…

Ok, let’s shake that off and return to real time.  Below are scenes from some films that are my faves when it comes to either being outright a romance film, or a film that creates such anticipation for that kiss, that when it happens, all is right with the world of love and romance.

Looking at the list, I see that some of the kisses I chose encompassed a wide spectrum of films.  But these kisses just happen to standout, and this is what they represent to me.

The Thin Man


The Thin Man – Nick & Nora
This classic couple were fun loving and were each other’s best friend.  Their kiss represents the affection that they held for one another.  They not only loved, but laughed together.



The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby – Daisy & Jay
Many didn’t like the film for it’s supposed ‘sappiness’.  Whatever!  Don’t know what they are talking about.  The film was the perfect accompaniment to the book.  It’s a tale of lost love.  We breathlessly awaited their reunion and their first kiss after years of being apart.



Love Story


Love Story – Oliver & Jenny
A story that had everyone crying about young love ending too soon.  For the short time they had together, they loved well.




West Side Story
West Side Story – Tony & Maria

My favorite musical!  A modern day Romeo & Juliet with singing and dancing.  Love at first sight let to this kiss.  Yes, we normally have lust at first sight, but love?  That’s a lovely dream.




Titanic – Jack & Rose

There is a Heaven, and they are together for eternity.  (Side Note – I wore this exact same dress for my wedding).  Please don’t gag.




Ghost – Sam & Molly
OMG!  This film had me crying like a baby.  And this ‘goodbye kiss’, totally put me over the edge.  So beautiful and sad.




Dracula – Mina & Dracula
I told you my list was kind of out there.  Their passion just explodes in this kiss.  I mean he is a vampire and the entire seduction throughout is blazing hot.




Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars – The Empire Strikes Back – Leia & Han
Their chemistry just sizzled.  Their fighting and arguing just made us want them to get together even more.  And when they did…wow!  How could you not want to love a bad boy?




Twilight – Bella & Edward
The best of the series.  Young love, well at least on her part, with him being a bit older.  Again vampires just have it going with the passion.  The foreplay before the kiss made the waiting worth it.




Eastern Promises
Eastern Promises – Nikolai & Anna
Throughout this violent film, the protectiveness that Nikolai showed toward Anna, again has the bad boy showing just a tad of this gentle side.  And this bittersweet kiss is more about the sharing of two souls, knowing that there can’t be anything more beyond that.


So there’s my list.  These passionate kisses are only a few that are worth mentioning, but I feel these kisses from these films show us what we should expect in our own lives.  A passionate kiss is so much more than the ‘act’ of kissing.  There has to be underlying meaning.  Emotion has to be brought to the forefront in order to experience the true meaning of a passionate kiss.  Here’s hoping that all of you have many passionate Candy Kisses.

Love & Candy Kisses,
