Into the wild - Sean Penn

Guys this is my favorite movie of all times. Well ok not really because there is so many awesome movies that it's hard to make a choice. But let's say he's in my top 5. Anyway. This movie is the most beautiful hymn to freedom I've seen. Adapted by the awesome book of Jon Krakaurer (that you must read by the way), it is about this young man who, feed up by society, decides to leave his cosy life behind to walk all the way to Alaska and live...Into the wild. Throughout his adventures he will get to meet people who will change his point of view on the human race and eventually heal him from his bitterness. Not only is it a journey of the mind, it is a journey of the soul. Breath taking shots and a perfect soundtrack make this movie complete. A critic of today's society, a spiritual journey of a young man and a hymn to nature, beautiful, touching, clever, deep, hypnotizing.

500 days of summer

I've always wanted to watch this movie ever since I saw the trailer on one of my numerous youtube searches. I fell in love with the camera work and the music. It just made me fell all fussy and warm inside.  Now I've finally seen it and let me tell you I wasn't disappointed. It was magical, this is the word. I adored it ! I advise it to...anyone ! Like seriously, not kidding.

The story starts off as all love stories, boy (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) meets girl (Zooey Deschanel). Boy falls in love, girl doesn't. Dilemma. Quite common you'll say. Don't worry, it gets very original. We watch their love story begin, their ups and downs, all through a series of flashbacks very well orchestrated accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack. Cute, heartbreaking, funny, clever, their journey through love doesn't quite end as expected. A beautiful story about love and all it's little things.

Enjoy !
