Before seeing this, I had already pigeon-holed this as the typical rom-com concept that's been flogged to death of late. Salvation I thought, may come in it's indie-like feel having seen a trailer. After going to 'keep the peace' with my girlfriend, I've come away very pleasently surprised.
The basic plotline of 'boy meets girl' may start the film, but a short way into it's running time, it's apparent this is going somewhere different.
The film's structure is all over the place chronologically. It's timeline moves back and forth with fevered intensity, but works all the better for it(Helpfully, for those not paying attention, each of the 500 days in question is numbered onscreen).
Refreshingly, much of the standard material normally seen in this sort of fare is missing.
Both leads are hugely appealing and likable, displaying believable chemistry together when scenes call for it.
The director, and the two screenwriters are male, which I found lent the Joseph Gordon Levitt's Tom the more sympathetic edge. Zooey Deschanel's title character Summer however, comes across as a representation of every woman man has failed to truely understand. Anyone who is a fan of author Mike Gayle, will find similarities of his work here.
For a film such as it is, the overall tone is decidedly pro male and ever so slightly dark, but don't let that put you ladies off. There are some nice moments of light comedy, and the 'morning after' scene is superb. Another, demonstrating a key moment with both 'expectation' and 'reality' using a splitscreen is particularly poignant. And somewhere buried in the material, yes, there is ultimately romance as well.
The soundtrack is excellent and subtley used, making a marked change from the likes of One Republic being blasted out.

Please note that this is a review of the film and not the Blu-Ray transfer. This also contains spoilers.

Let's get one thing straight from the start, (500) Days of Summer is not your average Hugh Grant, happily-ever-after romantic comedy flick. Like the tagline says, this is not a love story; this is a story about love. Director Marc Webb certainly knew what he was doing whevn he hired the two leading actors, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Brick, Inception), who plays charming yet naïve Tom, and Zooey Deschanel (New Girl, The Happening) who takes the role of Summer, the strikingly beautiful yet quirky love-interest. The two have remarkable chemistry throughout the film, and many memorable moments that will jerk an emotion or two. The film's basic setting is perfect for the film; Los Angeles captures the troubles of a modern day relationship.
The film's structure is very unique, rather than following a linear A-to-B, start-to-finish motion, it chooses to show the audience Tom's time with Summer in a jittery, random timeline, starting with the day he meets her in his workplace, to the day when they finally say their goodbyes. This adds a certain level of fresh originality to the film; it almost feels like a light-hearted, cute version of Christopher Nolan's Memento. In some parts of the film, it shows the aftermath of a previous argument between the couple that has the audience has not seen yet, creating a sense of dramatic irony when the argument is finally shown. This keeps the viewer intrigued as to what will happen next in this rollercoaster/train wreck of a relationship between the couple.

This felt like a quirky French film to me, which I love. It was a little slow in places but overall enjoyable. Awesome soundtrack.

I like the way it was filmed, going back and forth, it made it more interesting. I'd recommend it to those who enjoy quirky films and who are looking for some entertainment. It's quite funny in places and worth a watch.

It's a feel good movie despite the story line.

Format: Blu-ray
30-something wannabe architect Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has worked for 4 long years in a Los Angeles greeting card company as a slogan writer dreaming of love that somehow seems to elude him. Enter a new ‘average girl’ employee – the heart stopping bug-eyed Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel) whose very presence can make ice-cream sales increase and add value to unsellable real estate. Everything about Summer is magical and Tom’s gone-baby-gone in a heartbeat ("This is not good!" his friend quite rightly muses). And therein lies the problem. New Jersey Tom doesn’t just want Summer Finn as a friend...he’s thinking Soul Mate - when maybe Michigan’s finest isn’t thinking anything of the sort…

Possessed of a freshness and wit that is so often replaced with crudity in modern world rom-coms (especially those hoping to be hip, happening and hitting the zeitgeist) – "(500) Days Of Summer" is exceptional is so many ways. It's lol funny a great deal of the time – visually surprising – beautifully cast and above all just keeps you watching and enjoying right up until its unexpected and satisfying end. Even movie clichés like the dweeb friends to the lead character (superb turns by Geoffrey Arend and Matthew Grey Gubler as McKenzie and Paul) and the smart-arsed child (a droll and grown up performance by tiny Chloe Grace Moretz as his younger sister Rachel) are given such great lines that you’re too busy enjoying yourself to notice piddly little things like time passing. Characters play The Smiths on their Walkman’s, wear Joy Division teeshirts to work, quote Sid Vicious at dinner, want to buy Octopus’s Garden in record shops and even quote Henry Miller for solace (title above). This is a very cool and likeable movie.
