One Day (2011) | Ratings & Reviews

"On a moment-by-moment basis, Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess make this long-arc love story viable, sometimes even vital. But the structural conceit proves more reductive than expansive, the big picture too overdetermined to really sweep the viewer away."


"A bittersweet love story. Due to its fragmented structure, the dramatic arc never seems satisfying enough, although Rachel Portman's beautiful score weaves a melodic rainbow through the exposition"

Urban CinefileUrban Cinefile

"Much of Nicholls’ sharp dialogue and emotional truth remains intact, but the over-faithful translation does little to compensate for what can’t be lifted from the page."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Her (Ms. Scherfig) eccentric eye and offbeat rhythm sustain One Day through its stretches of banality and mitigate some of its flaws."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"A slushy, mawkish and weirdly humourless romance with a sub-Richard Curtis style and more endings than Lord of the Rings."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"In a season of movies dumb and dumber, One Day has style, freshness, and witty bantering dialogue."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"As so often happens with love, what you hope for is not even close to what you get, and in this case we are left with a heartbreaking disappointment of a film."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Danish director Lone Scherfig skillfully adapts David Nicholls' best-selling romantic novel to the screen."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It may not truly capture the complexities of its source material but One Day is funny, winning and entertaining - if little else."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"The ultimate end of the story reveals that it's all about Sturgess' suffering, which just isn't that compelling a topic. Given its lack of center and balance, the film might more appropriately be called "One Dude.""
