Emotional scenes, with emotive music - non-diegetic
Music is long string notes, the music starts before anything appears on the screen, which brings out narrative enigma.
Voice over from one of the main characters (Hugh Grant)
No Diegetic sound
Colour exposure signifying fantasy/dream world.
Slow motion montage of reunions.
White text signifies seriousness, turns to red, shows love.
The words "love actually" appears on screen then this disappears just to say "Love"
Sans Serif font, gives anchorage that it is a light hearted rom com.
More romantic than comedy
