Don't waste your time. Original series was great, the movie was hideous.
20 February 2019 | by matterstreamSee all my reviews

The story is horribly written. The directing sucked. Over two hours long with ridiculous, plodding character development

I loved the original series "Love Affairs in the Afternoon" it was tightly written and had an interesting story. A bit of a trashy indulgence, but it was fun and somewhat deep. The series was interesting in that it allowed each character to display their reaction to the situation. The movie was just a money grab. Mechanical, unoriginal, SLOW, stupid plot, and badly directed. I was waiting for it to end. .
