Young love at its sweetest and darkest points

"I loved this film that is so cute and honest in its storytelling and background music. It is a love story about two young people who find their way in a big city from a small town. They are young and bright eyed but also seriously under-employed. Young man is an architect who happens to work in a greeting card company, composing designs and text for the Hallmark like card. A young woman, pretty and free spirited is employed as assistant in the same place.
Story is told in non-linear fashion and it mingles the start of their love affair as well as the end of it and a hartbreak of a young man. The story is told from his point of view and it is peppered by beautiful music (of the anti-establishment kind, i.e. "Smiths") and deep, raw emotion.
I find film to be honest and sincere and for that reason, I really liked the story. My take is that this is one of the better romantic movies ever and it fits every generation."

"In this hip dramedy (an official pick of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival), a young greeting card writer (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) falls head over heels for his new coworker, Summer Finn (Zooey Deschanel). She just may be "The One." Through the 500 days of their relationship, the viewer watches these two characters grow with each other as they learn about life, love and hope. In a series of flashbacks the story unfolds hopping from sweet, romantic and funny moments to devastatingly, desperate and sad ones - all leading to the ultimate lesson that finding one's soul mate is no easy task. An entertaining musical scene is sure to leave you smiling."
