Rewatched this movie after my friend recommended it to me.
500 Days of Summer starts by saying that this is “not a love story” which is true to a certain extent, it’s definitely not your typical romantic movie. And one of the major differences is that it’s mainly narrated from the guy’s perspective.
To be honest, I initially didn’t like it much, I more of hated it, I hated it because it was so easy to relate to it, but now it’s bittersweet, I won’t say “I love it” but it’s one of the memorable films that are hard to forget, it’s a movie that leaves me feeling unsure about how I feel about it.
I personally don’t recommend this movie to couples, unless your relationship is crack free, don’t watch this together, it will only break those cracks wide open.
I will leave you with a quote I liked from the movie:
“Next time you look back, I really think you should look again.”
Side note, one of my favorite onscreen pairings have to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel !
