Yesterday I watched (500) Days of Summer again and again, it was really good. This is just one of those movie with a simple, yet wonderful idea behind it. It is not like there a thousand things happening, but still you won’t be bored a second.
The movie is about Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a young man who believes in love. He meets this lady, Summer (Zooey Deschanel), at work and he is immediately swept off his feet by her. The movie start a narrater telling us, let me tell you upfront: this is not a lovestory. It is a movie about love and all its element, from passion to anger to happiness to dissappointment. And apart from the love, it is kind of a weird movie as well. A bit like Juno, also a bit weird, but the good weird ;-)
This movie jumps back and forward in time and eventually all the piecies fit together. The clip that I put below starts with probably one of the saddest scenes of the movie (together with the one on the bench, if you’ve seen it, you will know what I’m talking about, pretty sad). If you haven’t watch the movie yet, I would like to say: watch the movie first. If will probably give away to much of the feeling. It is more a lovely way to appreciate the movie when you finished it and want to see some of the highlights. And last but not least: Joseph and Zooey are just amazing together & so good in their acting!
