500 Days of Summer Review :)

Okay so I stole some...

'Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl Doesn't.'

This is a story of boy meets girl, begins the wry, probing narrator of 500 Days of Summer, and with that the film takes off at breakneck speed into a funny, true-to-life and unique dissection of the unruly and unpredictable year-and-a-half of one young man’s no-holds-barred love affair.

Tom, the boy, still believes, even in this cynical modern world, in the notion of a transforming, cosmically destined, lightning-strikes-once kind of love. Summer, the girl, doesn’t. Not at all. But that doesn’t stop Tom from going after her, again and again, like a modern Don Quixote, with all his might and courage. Suddenly, Tom is in love not just with a lovely, witty, intelligent woman – not that he minds any of that -- but with the very idea of Summer, the very idea of a love that still has the power to shock the heart and stop the world.

My review now, that was just some background stuff....

This movies was pretty much the best movie I have seen this year...and I watch a lots of movies. The cinematography and the music was absolutely awesome. But the story itself is a tad tragic but also heartwarming. The movie can be confusing at times but its all part of the magic...just watch and see. The characters take you on an almost too realist journey of theyre lives in a span of 500 days showing you love, lost and a wonderful friendship in an all too real world. Some of the scenes were cheesy but thats what made them funny and nice...one of them reminded me so much of that show Eli Stone.

Just my opinion..i may be totally wrong and don't understand at all...but i am just 14. Voice yourself in the comments if you dissagree, I would much love some feedback. xx
