I've watched the movie last night because my friend recommended it. I loved it just until midway. This is based on a comic or something of the same title or also called A Chance of Sunshine. I've taken this summary of the comic from a blog:
It was such a simple story, a story that can't be simpler. There was a girl and there was a boy. They lived next to each other, where a wall is shared by the building they lived in. They lived in this small city and they went across each other everyday many times. But, she always turned left when she went out the building and he always turned right. She always turned left at the tube station and he always turned right. She always looked at left side in the bus and he always looked at the right side. Just like this, they have been there for on one knows how long but never meet. One day, just that one day, the joke in the heaven came down to the earth. The big shower made them know the existence of each other for the first time in the park. Maybe love did happen on the first sight. At least in their case it did. The shower stopped and they had to go. So they exchanged their numbers. But right after they parted, both of them lost it. Then, in the little city with nothing special, there were two people seeking their love. They were looking everyplace they knew of, everything they could think of. Every night, they were sleepless and sat in their room and listened to the same song. They passed away each other just in the same way while she turned left at the same place where he turned right. Two hearts had finally been broken and the pain made them unable to stay in their city of sadness so both of them decided to leave, in the same day. At that day, the girl left the building and went to the park for the last time and so did the boy. They stood there on the lawn where there was only a big tree separate them. Both of them didn't say a word, didn't know the existence of each other either, and at the end, the girl went left and the boy went right. They never meet again.
I believe that was supposedly the story. However, with movie adaptations, they always tend to change the story. For me, the first half was already "solemn"... you know, you can feel the pain of being star-crossed. I just don't like them putting an another-girl-and-another-boy who supposedly knew about their faith but then made a pact that they will keep them apart. I don't know how to explain it, sorry if you're confused. All I can say is that the another-girl-and-another-boy had destroyed the solemnity of the story. They just looked stupid. If they were not acting funny, I would have liked the concept of another-girl-and-another-boy who are keeping the main characters apart. Haiz.
Also, I didn't like the ending. It was like a joke.
I would have loved it if they stick to the original storyline, even though it's kind of tragic, sort of. But then it's a movie and they have to make it interesting, whatever.
The movie had mentioned about parallels, going the same directions but never meet.
Also, there was this nice poem used. It was a Polish poem by Wislawa Szymborska.
