2009 MOVIE: 500 DAYS OF SUMMER



500 DAYS OF SUMMER

This quirky film sheds a linear plot in favor of a memory-driven look at a failed romance.
That is why in the first place: it was mentioned that this is
NOT a love story but a story about "Love".


Joseph Gordon-Levitt (BRICK) stars as Tom,
a greeting-card writer who dreams of
becoming an architect and finding his true love.

Zooey Deschanel (THE HAPPENING) plays Summer,
a vintage-looking beauty whose ideas about love are entirely modern.



As Tom remembers his 500 days with Summer,
his mind jumps from moment to moment,
largely thinking of the good times in their trouble-filled relationship


Overall it is a mixture of cynicism and romance
makes it perfect viewing for happy couples, the recently dumped,
and those hopeful singles too!

My rating for this limited release theatre film:
4 out of 5 stars

Why?
The message about "love" wasn't clear in this 1 hr 35 mins show.

However, the twist in every angles of those intense romanse moment was an added points!
