I love this movie. It is my all time favorite. I have watched it dozens and dozens of times. It is my go-to movie on a long plane ride, an unexpected long airport layover, a sleepless night or a sick day at home. I have it on DVD and downloaded on my ipad and my ipod. I love the relationships between the grandfather and his grandson, Inigo Montoya and Fezzik, Miracle Max and Valerie and most of all Westley and Buttercup. These relationships are all about love. Paternal love, deep and sincere friendship, everlasting love that has survived the years and the romantic love between a man and a woman. I am fortunate to say that I have loved and been loved in all of these ways.
If you’ve never seen this movie, put it on your must list. My children have watched this movie with me and now my grandchildren are getting old enough to watch it with me. If you are a fan, then this movie has it’s own meaning to you. To me, it’s all about love.
