Day 233

movie: My Sassy Girl
starring: Elisha Cuthbert, Jesse Bradford
genre: Romance
year: 2008
format: TV EDIT

plot: A young man has his world turned inside out when he helps a drunk woman on the subway then starts a romance with her.

This is a remake of a Korean film by the same title

This movie has it's moments of pureness and there are other times when you are left sort of confused.
It's highly stylish, sometimes to the default of the script. I don't know if that is because it was translated from a non-English film or not.

There is a set up mid way, that hints at the ending twist, which ends up being this semi-comical payoff in what is otherwise a very dramatic story.  Actually, let me rephrase that, it's a very darkly depressing story about loss and what we cling to in order to get through it. 

From what I understand, this is also based on a novel that was based on a blog, which turns out to be semi-factual/biographical

what do i think i learned from this film?
Destiny has a reason all it's own. You can not tempt your fate, you just have to understand that whatever road you chose or think you are choosing, you are still going to meet your fate at the end of the journey.
