Love is a gift from God, and when two people fall in love, it is one of the most incredible emotions which can't be expected. These emotions are unbearable and untouchable. Today I'm going to discuss a romantic film called "The Lake House-2006," which is an American science fiction romance film directed by Alejandro Agresti. First and foremost, this is a remake film, and the storyline is based on the Korean movie "IL Mara." This is the best romantic film I've ever seen, both in terms of direction and acting. Where it comes to the actors and actresses, all are well-known and have performed outstanding work. Keanu Reeves is one of my favorite actors; I've admired him since I was a teenager, so I deeply enjoyed the film.

This film begins with a scene of a lady leaving a lovely lake house, but, before she left, she left a message inside the letterbox located in front of the lake house. And the lady's name is Kate. After she left, a new guy called Alex bought the lake house and moved in. Alex discovered the letter left by Kate. In the letter, Kate said that she used to live there before Alex and that if somehow any letter comes under her name, he should send it to her. She also said that there are dog paws in front of the house and a box under the basement that was there even before she came here. Alex searched both the dog footprints and the box but found none. But, assuming that this was a mistake, he responded to her that what she wrote was nothing there.
But something strange happened when Alex received the second letter from Kate, in which she said that she was in 2006, but in Alex's calendar it was 2004. After both of them realized they were from different timelines and were connected by the letterbox. They start talking with each other through that letterbox.
