Thanks Billy for reminding us of this stunning use of split screen. Here are others examples of split-screens in rom-coms: Down with love, The rules of attraction, When Harry met Sally, Annie Hall, Pillow talk, Indiscreet…

Stephane: Great list! I had forgotten about Indiscreet, and always thought Pillow Talk was the first.

But (500) days of summer’s split screen is probably the most interesting!
Does anyone remember another use of split screen in a rom-com?

Here is a bonus, a very nice split screen (on Minnie Riperton’s Inside my love) from a very good French rom-com that most of you probably don’t know: Une rencontre (Quantum love) with the gorgeous Sophie Marceau (The world is not enough) and the great François Cluzet (The intouchables): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpiwwBfmZKs
