I've been expected to see this movie for really long time. It came out on Greek cinemas in August and unfortunately, I wasn't in the city and I couldn't go to watch it. So, I had to spend my time waiting and waitng until the DVD came out. And I wasn't dissapointed.

First of all, the movie is based on a book that I haven't read yet.
Secondly, it's a love story that shows the characters in a specific day of the year. The day they meet is the 15th of July, so the movie keeps showing you how they were spending that same day every year. It was interesting to see how not only the characters' changes, but the changes of the technology and the fashion, their passions, their feelings and their lives, too. I found it a very intersting way of presenting a story. But seeing only what happens every 15th of July, means that you're missing some other improtant facts in the characters' lives, like marriages, birthdays, breaking ups etc. Actually, I guess that this might be the only flaw, but seriously, why having everything served in front of you?? It wasn't that bad imagining some things on your own for a change.

Thirdly, I have to mention the acting. Now, Jim Sturgess is my favorite actor, I really like him and I think he's really talented, and he didn't disappointed me in this movie. Also, Ann Hathaway is really pretty and a great actress and she was great here too. Some people had a problem, because she was faking British accent, since the movie is happening in UK, but not me.

And finally, I think that the end was one of the best. It was different than the one I was expecting and before I know it, my mouth was hanging open from the shock.

Bottom line, I loved it. It's one of my favorites and I totally recommend it to you. I also copied the DVD I rented so I can have it on my library, and believe me when I'm saying this, I don't do this much often.


  1. I really want to see this one too XD But with the speed i'm watching movies lately, i don't know when it will happen.
    Can you tell me at Facebook (not here, so you do not spoil for the rest) what happens at the end? XD

    1. Okie Dokie....I'll send you an e-mail better....

  3. this movie was horrendous. I hated the ending- both in the book and the movie. It was too sad.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
