Harold & Maude from 1971 is a Fantastic film about a depressed teenager who meet this remarkable old lady and they fall in love. It´s profund dark comedy and full of great humour and interesting thoughts on live and love. It's one of my favorite movies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHekCJdQUHE And then of course there is the movie that everybody has seen and most have seen many times and in that movie, Love is of course explored from many unconventional angles I'm talking of Rocky Horror of course :-)

Same Time, Next Year is one of my favorite unconventional love stories, although it totally goes against my morals. Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn (in their much younger days) play a couple who are each married to other people. They meet up at the same cabin once a year for a weekend affair. It's really interesting to see their unique love and how it changes through the decades. It's hard to find, but worth it.

"Green Card" because Gerard D. is so clumsy and adorable and Andie M. is perfection. "Sayonara" with two forbidden and heart-breaking romances. "The Wizard of Oz" because Dorothy and her three pals loved each other dearly.

I thought of two more, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and unconventional love story about two people seen as strange amongst weirdos, and Edward Scissorhands,an abnormal love between two unexpected people.

I tried to convince @babymama that Fight Club really just boiled down to a love story, but she wasn't buying it.

This might be a bit out of left field, but when I think about it, Bram Stoker's Dracula is a great unconventional love story.  He gave up his soul for love.

"Lars and the Real Girl" springs immediately to mind, as does "Lost in Translation".

"Garden State" is slightly unconventional. When a first date involves burying a pet hamster... well... And, more importantly, the love of a young man who dresses up as a knight and his friend's mother.

Right away I think of Bollywood and OM SHANTI OM which tells the story of a bit player who falls in love with a young starlet who has become involed with her director. It's got love, death, reincarnation, karmic revenge, and lots of singing, dancing, and comedy to go along with some drama. Then there's AMERICAN DREAMER which is about a woman who enters a contest and wins a trip to Paris to meet the writer of her favorite booke series. She gets a nasy knock on the head and when she comes to she believes she IS that character and starts living her life, much to the chagrin ot the books' author. REUBEN REUBEN IS GOOD TOO. iT'S ABOUT A dYLAN tHOMAS-ESQUE POET WHO SURVIVES BY GIVING READINGS OF HIS POETRY, AND BANGING UPPER MIDDLE CLASS WOMEN WHO COME TO HIS READINGS. Oops. Sorry about the caps.

Never a romantic by any estimation, Shohei Imamura turned out two very sweet (albeit typically horny and surreal) love stories during his last decade: international megahit The Eel and Warm Water Under a Red Bridge.
Quite a few of Woody Allen's better character analyses suffice as charming love stories; specifically, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah and her Sisters and Husbands and Wives are great, multifaceted pictures in address of commitment and the vicissitudes of passion.
Finally, Arthur - in which an obscenely rich, drunken, whoremongering man-child finds and clings to true love - is actually a very moving film in supplement to Dudley Moore's wheeze-giggle antics.

Somewhere In Time is out of this world. It's one of the most beautiful and memorable love stories I've ever came across. Another is What Dreams May Come. Both are books by Richard Matheson. They are both beautifully shot with great artistic impression and story line. The music in Somewhere in Time is truly some of the best music I've come across in movies.

How about LOVE ACTUALLY (my favorite romantic comedy ever)? There are some real bleak ones but I doubt you'll like them. KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (the director's cut was so different from the theatrical release) that it felt like an epic love story underneath all the battle scenes...that is a tough question. LOL!

Natural Born Killers, Harold and Maude, Matador, Secretary and, arguably, The Graduate.

I think Harold and Maude was the most unconventional love story. Harold was a teenager and Maude well into her 80's.

The Korean film A GOOD LAWYER'S WIFE comes to mind. Also Yunjin Kim is lovely and conflicted with love in the Korean film ARDOR. Also, the Korean film OASIS -- while a bit controversial -- is certainly an exploration of a very unconventional relationship that turns to a level of love or, at least, commitment.
