t loves that endure the hardships and the passage of time? Do you like those movies about two characters destined to love each other? Let me just say one thing: if you are one of those and you haven’t seen it yet, “One Day” will become one of your favorite movies. If you’re into murder thrillers and you’re expecting another true crime… Run away and don’t look back, although you can also give this wonderful movie a chance about how beautiful love can be… experienced in just one day.

Plot

Emma and Dexter meet on July 15th after finishing college. It was a brief encounter, almost a flirtation, but that day a love emerged that will last for several years through the stages of life that each one will have to live.

About the movie

A great script for a movie that knows how to mature alongside the characters and never abandon its bittersweet comedy tone with many dramatic touches. One of those movies that knows how to take the viewer right where it wants if you let yourself be carried away by the circumstances and don’t overanalyze it.

How does it do it? It has two great actors, Anne Hathaway (especially) and Jim Sturgess, who nail it, evolving their two main characters in roles that actors love to play because it allows them to show off their acting skills: touching many registers in the same movie, shining when they have to shine, letting the other act without stepping on each other, and above all, embodying two charming characters that are hard not to fall in love with.

A smart, very intelligent script that knows how to deceive and seduce, one that captivates. It doesn’t deceive at all: it’s a romantic story, but well written. It’s a great idea: seeing the lives of the two characters in one day over several years to see what happens to their love and where it leads.

Also, without giving any spoilers, if you’re the type who likes to shed a tear or two… we assure you that you’ll be satisfied, because the film has a lot of drama.

Our Opinion

Comedy, drama, and lots of romance in this great movie that, for once, makes us reconcile with the genre and affirm that not all romantic comedies are terrible. A movie about love and how it can grow within us, through distance, time, and absence.
