Endless Love vs. Summer with Monika



A couple of movies about young lovers who do ill-advised things. Endless Love is bizarrely hopeful, or I felt bizarre for wanting the love story to work out. It's a pretty creepy flick when I think about it. Summer with Monika is a teen romance that doesn't turn out well. Endless Love is one that shouldn't. Or is it a pure representation of of true love at all costs? Or are the characters idiots? Summer with Monika, though a lovely film, lacks the weirdness that endears Endless Love to me.
