“This is actually a story of boy meets girl, but i need to warn you: this isn’t a really love tale.” Much like Blue Valentine, 500 Days of Summer follows a non-linear narrative in the partnership between Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and summertime (Zooey Deschanel). This adore tale is not directly about ‘love’, rather it’s about appreciation tends to be a mirage; it is unclear, illusory and may end up being far-removed from one’s objectives.
Tom is actually love-struck when he meets summertime, and very quickly truly noticeable that they have various understandings of admiration; Tom try a firm believer in true love and summer time thinks appreciation is actually a dream. Despite her contrasting feedback, they enter a casual connection. Tom try blinded by their feelings and cannot grasp the connection for what it really is; dissonant. As he reflects on the times with each other, he just recalls the favorable information. Discerning memory disables Tom through the truth. “Just because she wants exactly the same bizarro junk you do, it doesn’t indicate she’s the soul mate Tom.” Their own fortune is closed when Tom sees Summer’s gemstone on her behalf fist at the girl party. Interestingly they exchange viewpoints; summer time today thinks in-marriage, and Tom turns out to be the love-hating cynic that summer time once was.
