[500] DAYS OF SUMMER (2009)

The title on thiz movie, Summer eventually is the girl’s name. There is no escape from love, either Tom or Summer. I think thiz is the best modern romantic drama since ”Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” in 2004. The couple is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. We have recently seen Gordon-Levitt in “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” (2009). The Director is Marc Webb. The chemistry of Gordon-Levitt and Deschanel is very well. The characters seem so easy-going and believable. The movie is filled with good music to describe the highs and lows of love. The movie simply brings us into the mood of love easily, where sometimes there is laughter and joy, and the other times there is hesitation and sadness. In several scenes, they keep asking each other, “where will thiz relationship goes to?” If you love somebody that just happens and you could tell her anytime and anywhere, it doesn’t matter where the place is. Maybe it is not that simple, but we know even love doesn’t last forever, but commitment does. The ending is far from idealistic, but more close to reality. Like I have said many times before, if you want to make a great love story, you cannot have the couple stay together at the ending. You have to provide the tragic element. You can see thiz fact from “Romeo + Juliet” (1996) to "Titanic" (1997) and other similar love stories. The essence of love is simply the moments we ever had.
