Everything goes well until Summer breaks up their relationship and Tom is left with nothing but a memory of 500 days with the woman of his dreams. According to Billy Wilder, boy meets girl is the best plot for a film. Marc Webb takes it further. Boy gets girl and boy loses girl is the concept of this homage to love and its pitfalls.
