Excerpt: Set over the course of twenty-three years, One Day opens on July 15, 1998, with the first meeting between Dexter (Jim Sturgess, Across the Universe ) and Emma (Anne Hathaway, The Devil Wears Prada ). The two are seemingly set for a one-night stand, but when this fails to materialize, they settle for a lifelong friendship.

Excerpt: Novels can do a great job of conveying the scope of a character’s life across years or even decades, but movies have a much tougher time. There’s only so much story you can cram into two hours, and only so many years you can follow a character before switching actors or relying on unconvincing aging makeup.
Excerpt: "One Day" represents a promising move away from the fabricated, sickly modern trend of most romantic dramas. This movie poignantly captures the complexity of relationships and the way lives meander and inextricably change, bolstered by the terrific on-screen chemistry of our two leads. We enjoy the way they generate humour and warmth in the same way we appreciate how the film explores themes of love and loss. Whatever happens tomorrow, you'll always have today.
Excerpt: Klar for litt klassisk hjerte og smerte av det gode slaget? Den danske regissøren Lone Scherfig gir oss nettopp dette i One Day , et velspilt drama bygget over et fortellerkonsept som kanskje ikke funker helt knirkefritt, men med en god moral som ikke er til å ta feil av: Sats på kjærligheten, livet er kort!
