Romantic movie date

Friday, November 4, 2011

Romantic comedies are any girl's vice. The predictablity, the twelve step equation to eternal love and happy-ever-afters, the boy-meets-girl-falls-in-live-but-fights-against-it-story. However, One Day, with Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess doesn't follow this worn out recipe.

Yes, it is romantic and yes, it has it's funny moment, but it is not a romantic comedy. It is just...perfect.

Even those who steer well clear from this genre of movies will enjoy this masterpiece. It is dark, it tugs at your heart strings, it makes you think about the important things and what really matters in life.

The film follows one day, the 15th of July, which bears significance for the two main characters Dexter & Emma. You meet them as they meet each other and for the next two hours, get glimpses of human life for the next fifteen years of your life. It drags through the difficult times and lights you up in the blithe moments.

Be prepared to take a few tissues with you and be sure to watch it with someone you love dearly. I did.
