MOVIE REVIEW: "One Day"

For everyone who doesn’t know: The novel „One Day“ by David Nicholls is my favorite novel or second favorite,  whatsoever. I’ve enjoyed reading this book so much, I cried, laughed, and fell in love with the two leading characters. As I’m a fan of novels being made into films, I was SO looking out for this one. (Especially as the director also made “An Education” which had fantastic cinematography and I like Anne Hathaway.)


And GOD, was it good. I am so glad to be able to say that the director did his best to turn the contents into a film. I’m sure it was extremely complicated to get the screenplay right and to make Emma and Dexter look accurate for their age (from 22 to 42).

The two lead actors played their parts brilliantly, the music was stunning, the cinematography was gorgeous with the respective decades being realized perfectly and the ending was so emotional that I just have to pay my respect to the whole cast and crew of the film. I wish I could give 5 stars, but it’s my favorite book and somehow it wouldn’t feel right.
