This weekend sees the release of "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,"
a new film which imagines Ewan McGregor ("that wiley scot," to quote Christopher Plummer), as a fisheries expert who's charged with bringing salmon fishing to the Arabic nation at the behest of a rich sheik. But, don't be fooled; "Salmon Fishing" also features a tumultuous love affair between McGregor and Emily Blunt, one compounded by the fact that her boyfriend has gone MIA in Afghanistan. Tragic!
So, to honor the film's release, Moviefone has taken the liberty of curating the best war-torn movie romances out there. From "Casablanca" to "The English Patient" take a look at the gallery below. PHOTOS:
