Storyline

Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their university graduation. We see them every year on the anniversary of that date - July 15th. Emma is smart but success doesn't come quickly for her, whereas for Dexter, success and women come very easily. Through the years they grow apart as their lives take different directions and they meet other people. But as they grow apart from those other people and their lives start taking opposite directions again, Emma and Dexter find that they belong with each other. Written by napierslogs

Romantic and moving drama.
6 December 2011 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

One Day is a mixture of romance/drama in the right measure, which shows a couple of friends who had their lives marked by day July 15.

All the drama takes place in just one day of the year, and every year their life and their personality changes, leaving them increasingly distant. And each year that these differences make the inevitable distance, their love becomes more evident. Beautiful, charming, touching and romantic, with an end a little obvious, but still beautiful. Excellent performances, photography, script and soundtrack. Anne and Jim made a great couple.

I recommend for anyone who loves a well told drama.
