This film shows the life cycle of a relationship from the first meeting and feelings of lust, to the break up and moping stage, to the moving on stage. I really enjoyed the non-sequential story telling and loved the soundtrack. This film, is to the Smiths, what Garden State is to the Shins.
A movie not about love, but about the blindingly manipulative effects the idea of love has on ones peceptions, told unashamedly from a male perspective through a non-linear narrative.
Criticed by many for being "too hipster", it's filled with musical name drops, dream-like sequences and quirky hipstery things. That's the point. To emphasise the fallacy of the main protagonists idea of love.
Incredible film with an amazing soundtrack! movieclips.com/P2Hi-500-days-of-summer-movie-videos/
