Love graphically

with 7 comments

On Sunday night, I kick-started my own personal festive season by watching Love Actually. It’s a great film, I think. Very enjoyable. When Martin Freeman and Joanna Page’s characters kiss on the doorstep, the first lump in my throat appears, and it comes back at the drop of a hat for the remains of the film, and stays there fairly constantly from the moment that Colin Firth arrives in Marseille. Of course, as soon as Aurelia sees that Jamie stood in the restaurant, well, y’know, I’ve got something in my eye.. a bit of dust, I think.

Anyway, I had a notepad near me as I lay on the bed watching the DVD on my laptop, and started making notes connecting all the characters. I’ve not hidden my penchant for charts and graphs, so it won’t surprise you to know that I thought about arranging it using nice colours and Gill Sans. Yesterday, I had a look at the Love Actually page on Wikipedia and found someone had already done a chart of the connections. But it wasn’t pretty enough for my tastes, so I still went ahead and made one.

  3. I hate to be a pedant… (Actually I love to be one, it's one of the reasons I have no friends) But you appear to have spelled 'friendship' wrong on the key of your graph.
    Aside from that I love it! How long does making something like that take you?

  5. I have to confess I've never seen Love Actually, so the graph means nothing to me – sorry Craig! It is extremely pretty though. Must check the film out…
