Really nice idea, poor execution
27 July 2018 | by Evil_HerbivoreSee all my reviews

Hello Again was advertised as a musical about many shades and faces of love told from the point of view of ten people living in various time periods. Each actor plays two roles and the movie is constructed like a chain with one actor from a couple changing each time. This idea is not new, but it isn't widely used, so it could lead to the creation of a truly great movie. It could if only the stories weren't so bland. I had a feeling I never learned anything about the vast majority of the characters other than they want to have sex. I do understand that is an important part of a relationship, but in a movie consisting of ten stories one would expect a bigger variety of themes. The only story I really liked was the one with Audra McDonald and Martha Plimpton, as it was the only one in which the characters had plans, dreams and ambitions. Sadly, in most of the stories this is not the case and the characters are completely one-dimensional.

Another thing that was poorly done is the songs. As someone who loves musicals I'm used to singing instead of talking and I really like the convention. However, this doesn't mean that making the characters sing dialogues without any metre is the same as writing songs. The songs in Hello Again sound just like that: as if someone just composed any music that would fit what the characters were meant to say without paying any attention to music patterns. In result the majority of the songs is flat and unremarkable, and it gets more and more annoying as the movie goes on. It's definitely not the type of music I'd re-listen, unlike many other musical soundtracks. In the result, it was quite difficult for me to even finish the movie.
