Movie recommendation - (500) Days of Summer

(500) Days of Summer (2009)
4/5

This is a story of boy meets girl.
The boy, Tom Hansen of Margate, New Jersey, grew up believing that he'd never truly be happy until the day he met the one.

This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie 'The Graduate'. The girl, Summer Finn of Shinnecock, Michigan, did not share this belief.
Since the disintegration of her parent's marriage she'd only love two things. The first was her long dark hair. The second was how easily she could cut it off and not feel a thing.

Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for. This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story...

"It's official. I'm in love with Summer. I love her smile. I love her hair. I love her knees. I love how she licks her lips before she talks. I love the heart-shaped birthmark on her neck. I love the way she looks when she sleeps."

Well - it's indeeeed official! I am in love with 500 Days of Summer!!!
What a great feeling it is to watch a movie which concept feels so believable and which manages to capture the misery and sweetness of life and love at the same time! It gives such an insight in how there are always two sides of every story.......
Tragic and heartfelt but still so very funny at times, this movie sucked me in completely!
Oooh! ...and let me add - the soundtrack is FANTABULOUS!!!!! (if you are a frequent visitor to this blog, you may recognize quite a few songs ;))
