  1. 1. IN CONTRADICTION WITH AUGUSTINIAN VIEW
  2. 2.        Ana Brady (Amy Adams) from Boston is a planner who stages apartments for Realtors. Anna has been dating cardiologist, Jeremy (Adam Scott) for four years. Anna decides to propose him in Dublin on the February 29th Somehow, due to destiny’s plans she is forced to disembark in Dingle due to a storm. Anna hires the unfriendly owner of the inn Declan (Matthew Goode) to drive her to Dublin. They go on an adventure together which makes a lasting impression on both of them. In the end, she rejects Jeremy's faux proposal and goes back to Declan who gave her the best moments in her life.
  3. 3. Three characteristics to be human:  To love God.  To fulfill the will of God.  To serve God. Augustine’s idea about human love.
  4. 4.  To love God is basic purpose of life, whereas the movie promotes the idea that if you don’t find the true (human) love of your life. Your life is in vain.  According to Augustine we love something about human, what is that something?  If something is what we want, why Ana went for someone? Leaving ‘’something’’ behind.  Augustinian view of human love is temporary, as the person dies the love ends too. Whereas according to the movie ‘’Leap Year’’ death and life were two realities of life which just distributed the bodies not the souls.
  5. 5.  Love relations.  Love at first sight or infatuation?  Problems according to Augustine with human love, and their answers.  How to know that love is genuine?  Can human love be immortal?  What does ‘’leap year’’ says about it?
  6. 6.  How to love God?  Do we actually believe in God?  Is devotion to God possible today?  Serving God, is it only about prayers and worships?  Is to love humans is to love God?
  7. 7.  What is love of God?  Reward and punishments.  The fear of death.  The belief in life after death.  How to know if love for God is genuine or not?  Is communication not significant in relation with God?
  8. 8.  Is it the love for human or one’s own need to be loved?  Is human love selfless?  Is there anything like first or last love?  If love is actually genuine, how do we love again and again?  We have one God so we love him entirely; it isn’t the case with humans.
  9. 9.  If to love something about someone is the case, how come Ana left someone who had everything?  Ana and Declan were two different people, what attracted Ana?  Jeremy was perfect in terms of ‘’market’’, Ana left him for Declan who wasn’t a perfect market product. Why?  According to Augustine human love requires continuous recognition, was it the case with Ana and Declan?
  10. 10. ‘’When my 60 seconds came, I saw that I had everything that I wanted but what I needed was here’’.  Do we know what the difference between needs and wants is?  Do we need love, or it’s a want?
  11. 11.  Primary needs.  Can humans live in isolation?  Existence of humans, without love is possible?  The step Ana took for Declan, is it justified?  If love is immortal, why do we miss the loved ones after their death?
  12. 12.  Does distance make love stronger or weaker?  Ana filled the gap, and went to Declan for love. Wasn’t love possible with distance?  To love is to get love in return, what about selflessness?  Communication and distance. How important are they in love?
  13. 13.  Jeremy was a perfect man, why did Ana not love him?  Loving someone who’s different from you, easy or hard?  How to find that ‘’perfect someone’’?  Do we love something? Or we love someone?
