Dependent Origination

(500) Days of Summer

很好看。Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn’t.

Yeah that is it. That is how the story goes. But it describes a universal truth so even if you exchange the gender it would still work. It is about love. What is love and what is coincidence and what is forever.

Many pithy dialogues that worth re-reading. It cuts deep into our emotional states. It feels even dizzy after watching it. Art is about expressing feelings that I cannot possibly express as good.

Everyone was young once. Everyone fell in love for the wrong person once. Well hopefully. It is amazing how fast the hurt can heal and we can eventually move on to the next great thing, despite all the depression and sufferings at the time of hurt. Are we the same person, though?
