(500) days of Summer - 3.5/5

This is not a love story.
It is a story about love.

Indeed it is.
Tom is your typical romantic girl (typo that stays). He believes in fate, destiny, love at first sight, being in love forever and ever etc...
The first time he saw Summer, he knew she was the One.
But Summer doesn't really believe in love, she'd rather be alone and not attached to anybody ... Anyway, your typical guy.

This is not a love story.
It is a story about love.

I really enjoyed how the movie was done. The actors were genuine and the photography reminiscent of the 50s... Paired with the fashion choice, it gave some kind of a timeless feeling to the movie. The editing reminded me sometimes of Amelie which helped adding a coat of cuteness overall the whole movie.

I liked how the movie did its own tweak on relationships. Maybe that's why I agree with the tagline so much.
It is not your typical romantic comedy.
We had some conversations about the main characters actions and reactions through the whole movie.
My friend was right , this is the kind of movie that makes you think.

And I need the soundtrack.


  1. One of my favourite movies of last year.

    The soundtrack is pretty good too. You can get it from the same place as that mix tape ;)
