500 days of summer
on 25 August 2011
This film was marketed as a story about love, not a love story, and I didn't understand the difference until watching it. The story is played out out of chronological sequence which can be a little confusing at first but I really liked the way it was done. The film was well acted and made me think, but it also made me a bit depressed! Not the rom-com I was expecting; it wasn't very funny at all. I actually only bought it on a whim because one of my favourite artists (Regina Spektor) was featured on the soundtrack and while I don't regret the purchase, I'm glad I paid less than a fiver for it.
My verdict: worth a watch, but isn't going to win awards any time soon.
