Love is like wind. You can’t see it but you can feel it.

 When it comes to the “Teenage Love” as the subject of art, Music explored it and presented it in a far more elegant manner than movie. Most of the teen movies are about lust, erotica and fun. They are enjoyable in their own manner but the love side of a Teen is something which is conspicuous yet seldom taken up by movie. However, all the right ingredients make “A walk to remember” a perfect movie about teenage love in a world that isn’t always perfect.

A Walk To Remember is a tale of a romance between two opposites; Landon played by (Shane West) and Jamie played by (Mandy Moore). Landon Carter (Shane West) is a big name in the school in-crowd – an aimless, moody, troublemaker who breezes through school making the most of his popularity. One night, he dares a boy to jump into a reservoir in order to join his gang. When the prank goes wrong with the boy ending up in hospital, Landon is given community service to do – he is assigned to tutor disadvantaged students on the weekends and to participate in the Drama Club’s spring play. This throws him together with Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore), a girl who he has known all his life but ignored.

Serious, conservative, and daughter of the town’s church minister, Jamie (Moore) is as far from cool as she can possibly be, and doesn’t care – she knows where she is going and what she wants to do with her life. Struggling with the lines of the school play, Landon is forced to ask Jamie for help. In spending time together, Landon learns to worry less about what others think of him and more about doing what he feels is right. The two become friends and a relationship develops. However, Jamie has a very big secret she must keep from Landon – one that will get in the way of their romance and destroy their future together.

The “cool kid meets misfit and falls in love” story has been done many times, but this is a fine example of the genre. Both West and Moore produce likeable characters with depth. They also make the most of the script, which has a twist or two which makes it stand out from the crowd. Starting out as a lightweight teen movie, it develops into a fine right-of-passage fable which is surprisingly worthwhile.

 

As a maturing male, I couldn’t help but cry inside. As teens we all had crush on someone. However, this movie shows all the emotions and the bonding you would have missed while in college. I found myself wishing I were either Landon or Jamie, because they represent the real virtues of life and love. This isn’t your typical love story, because when it comes down to it, the love is only part of the whole scheme. While I never expected this to touch me so much, AWTR enters as perhaps one of my favorite movies . You will feel as if you’re a part of the movie, you will be able to relate to them, and you will love it. AWTR succeeds in delivering a great experience.
