Goofs

During an exacerbation of her condition, Hazel has a drain put in for her pulmonary oedema. This is incorrect as pulmonary oedema is not managed by the insertion of chest drains, but rather by supportive measures (chest drains are, however, used in cases of pleural effusion). See more »

Quotes

Isaac: She said she wanted to break up with me before the surgery, 'cause she couldn't handle it. I'm about to lose my eyesight and SHE can't handle it. I kept saying "always" to her, you know, like always. And she kept talking over me and not saying it back, and that was... It was like I was gone already, you know? And...
Hazel Grace Lancaster: Yeah, sometimes people don't understand the promises that they're making when they make them.
Isaac: I know, but... I just feel like such a loser, and I still have her necklace.
Hazel Grace Lancaster: Take it ...

Was this shot on film? Cause there's a lot of chemistry involved!
31 May 2014 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

This movie, simply put, is worth each and every one of its 125 minutes. Including the closing credits, that you need to dry your eyes and think about what you just saw. It's the inspiring story of two young people who are no different then all of us, as they both are in the process of dieing. Though Hazel Grace and Augustus are more aware of this fact of life; because their „eternity" has an expiration date, set by Hazels terminal illness: Cancer.

As the viewer is put on an emotional roller-coaster, alongside the feelings and attitudes towards life and love the two teens share, this movie will be a key to many locked doors in the recepients minds. And through these doors we are lead by an ensemble of actors who are amazingly sensitive in their portrayal of personalities and emotions.

The writing and directing is so brilliantly executed, that you have sympathy with every character this movie so caringly brings to (short) life. Even when they oppose another you feel unable to take sides. Because you find yourself sharing both. And when the credits role - like the tears on your cheek - you realize, that these opposing views are one and the same after all: Life.
