Review"Titanic" is a long, colored romantic drama film. Released in the 1997 in the USA, this highest-grossing film has earned millions of dollars and, which is more valuable, great love of the viewers all over the world.

The movie was written, directed and co-produced by James Cameron. He managed to make a wonderful, exciting and very romantic movie. Its plot is based on a famous story about the liner named Titanic which was wrecked in the ocean after a collision with an iceberg. For those times, and that was the beginning of the XXth century, Titanic was a great achievement and thousands of people tried all their best to travel on board of this craft. So its wreck was a shocking accident for most of the people.

However, Cameron's problem was not only to show the great and unforgettable sinking of a huge liner into the black depth of the ocean, but also to include into this story human feelings.

So he has written the scenario of the movie according to all rules of a romantic film.

The main characters are Rose DeWitt Bukater and Jack Dawson who fall in a forbidden love on the board of the Titanic. Rose's fiancée Caledon Hockley knew about it and even tried to kill Jack who managed to save himself. The end of this story is rather mournful, because Jack Dawson drowns. The story is narrated by aged Rose to a group of explorers who wanted to know more details about the wreck of the Titanic.

Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio (as Jack Dawson) is an Academy Award-nominated American actor well known for his roles in blockbuster movies like "Romeo and Juliet" (1996) and "The Aviator" (2004), and was famed for his global celebrity influence dubbed as "Leomania" in the late 1990s.
