One Day explores a friendship/romance over the course of 15 years, but by looking at only one day a year, necessarily the 15th of July. A cute conceit for a book, it just does not work as a film. I had hopes since I'm generally interested in unusual structures, and the cast includes a lot of people I like - Anne Hathaway, Patricia Clarkson, a bit part for Jodie Whittaker - but in addition to American actors putting on British accents (a pet peeve of mine), there's just no real interiority here. It feels like we have to be told where we're up to all the time because there's just no room for the characters to evolve. We just have to take it on faith that their friendship has grown, or that it's on the rocks, or whatever. Some bouncy dialog and occasional truths make it watchable, but ultimately, it just comes off as dull. The gimmick takes away too much of what's needed for the narrative to function on an emotional level.

There's an old saying that goes, "Don't do crack cocaine." I'd like to expand on that and offer, "Don't do crack cocaine while making a film."

I'll give it a 6/10. There were parts that bored me and some that touched me. It taught me the value friendship though and also to count your blessings.

I didn't like it, maybe because of Anne Hathaway's acting, not a fan of hers. Beautiful photography though.

Not a huge surprise, but the book was much better. I don't think Jim Sturgess was the right choice for Dexter's role as he didn't really bring out the likable side of him at all and I didn't care at all what happened in the relationship. Read the book instead, people.

It's so so beautiful....
And the end was so touching...

(i liked the idea of the plot, those marked-changing years.. i liked music. i liked Paris. i liked that little nostalgia-feeling, tickling me.. i liked hairstyle of Anne Hathaway... i liked those true-deep emotions, who came while watching this nice film).

It's no a great movie, but it has a nice plot, good acting. I think the book is probably better.
