A Day was a lot of potential. Of course it was dark and depressing but themes of love and the main cast égayaient our interest constantly growing. This movie had a potential in which the aura of hope was strong enough to keep us wanting to see a happy resolution in the tumultuous lives of these two beings who love each other, they tear and are constantly. A Day could have been a wonderful film about love and friendship across the different eras that it depicts, a bit like the film Before Sunset had managed to accomplish this masterfully. And then came the turn of the third act. This terrible third act.

A Day had taken a certain direction, a certain bias which is quite honorable from the beginning and then, oddly enough, was completely swept away without warning. Result, the film becomes a jumble of themes to the contrary, the pace seems inconsistent, and the story, yet so endearing at the start, seems to be for the sole and single purpose to do everything to lead the public to tears. While it is precisely faithful to the book, sometimes you have to have break away from it partially to be able to transpose in an appropriate manner on the big screen. The scenario having been made by the author of the novel in person (David Nicholls), it was in vain to expect a change in the material original or a slight correction of its weak points.

Thanks to their respectable performances, Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess are the only ones that we will keep an ounce, even minimal, interest. They succeed without real problems we embed in their wanderings, emotional, ranging from the joy of living in the moment and the deepest of depressions.

Last point, an end can bring a movie to the top or bury it six feet beneath the earth, it can erase some of the shortcomings of the departure, or eventually weaken the entire structure of the film. The final Day you will leave an aftertaste of frustration in her throat, and not only because of the events that occur, but in the manner in which they are presented. Everything that we have been able to discover in the course of the film, all the lessons that the script was able to give us are thrown out the window in favor of an unexpected outcome that is crushing the soul of the whole of his work.
