The real name of the character Love is Aimee Moore. Aimee is French for "loved," so her name arguably means "loved more." See more »
When Howard and Madeleine are taking on the sidewalk of the street in Manhattan, traffic is moving swiftly while the camera is in one direction, and traffic is completely stopped when the camera is in the opposite direction. See more »
Time, they say you heal all wounds but they don't talk about how you destroy all that's good in the world, how you turn beauty into ash. Now that's some bullshit Howard. Now if love is creation and death is destruction, I'm just the terrain in between. You don't understand time, no-one understands time. Einstein was close when he said i was just an illusion.

Look, it's obvious from the trailers-- this is a sad movie.
But anyone who watched the trailers knows that. You know what you are going into. It is very formulaic, but the acting is good. Even the little parts are good. I would say if you watched and liked "The Fault in Our Stars" this is a good movie for you. It focuses on interpersonal relationships and the raw emotions that come with tragedy. If you are looking to cry, but definitely feel something, this is the movie for you.
I feel like a lot of the negative hype may come from expecting more from the movie than was ever promised. Two of the main actors are known as taking action movie roles. This movie was never marketed as an action movie, though. It was advertised as a drama about a man who had lost his child. That is exactly what it is. Sure there are some unexpected turns, but at the end of the day, don't expect what was never advertised to be there.
