Movie Review - A Walk to Remember (2002) [English]

Title:        A Walk to Remember
Actors:     Shane West, Mandy Moore
Director:  Adam Shankman
Writers:    Nicholas Sparks (novel), Karen Janszen (screenplay)
Released: 2002

Summary: The story of two North Carolina teens, Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan, who are thrown together after Landon gets into trouble and is made to do community service.

Review: Some movies become part to your heart and they live there forever and forever again. It may be a scene which took away for heart or a performance or a song or even an expression. One such movie was 'A Walk to Remember' based on book by Nicholas Sparks. I had seen this movie long back but it stuck with me and most of all a song called "Only Hope" I would link the video of the song below. 

Now coming to the review. objectively speaking like one reviewer on said there's is nothing in the movie to classify it as classic movie nor does it boast academy award wins. Neither the actining is world class. But, there is always a but, all the small parts come together to form a movie which hits you emotionally and makes to cry or at least bring tears to your eyes.

This is the story of Landon who is a bad boy and along with his friends he forces a guy to jump in water where the kid is hurt. Due to this Landon is ordered to do community service and to take a part in school play. Through these events Landon meets Jamie, daughter of the local pastor. And then everything changes for both.

Throughout the next half an hour the preparations for play goes on and during the play Landon falls for Jamie but Jamie rebuffs his actions but only for a little while. After that a whirlwind romance ensues but Jamie has a secret, a terminal disease, Blood Cancer and only has a few months to live. Landon does his best to make rest of her time memorable.

The movie is sad but this doesn't go the path of melodrama by showing Jamie's death but it's effect. This movie is emotional but rather than focusing on the sadness it focuses on the need to go on, Hope and happiness. This is movie to watch over and over again. I myself watched this movie again while I was watching the song which I have linked above. Some movies are worth remembering and this is one of those.

My Rating - 9/10
