Why watch this film?
After We Fell, following their tumultuous relationship in the second movie, the couple Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) and Tessa (Josephine Langford) seem to finally face the reality of life in the third chapter of the franchise, 'After We Fell'. Directed by Castille Landon ('Fear of Rain'), the feature film spends 99 minutes showing the ups and downs of this couple, based on a successful novel by author Anna Todd. They drift apart, get hurt, and then come back together. When they fall in love again, something else comes up to separate them once more. And so on. The only thing that changes is what keeps them apart and brings them together: flirting with the waiter, an unexpected friend, getting drunk, etc., etc. There's no real complication in this situation, nor anything that really moves the story forward. There is even a certain beauty hidden in this void, which speaks a lot about modern relationships today: fleeting love, hidden relationships, and so on. But obviously, the director can't turn this material into something interesting. After all, more than a bad story, she has a problem that breaks any possibility: one of the worst actors of her generation on screen. Even though Langford does well in the scenes, Hero Fiennes Tiffin remains a complete disaster - even more so in this movie, which has no story and demands more from the actors on screen. Some moments are embarrassing. In the end, 'After We Fell' may be the least bad of the three movies released so far. Maybe because it has less story and less room for error. But in the end, there's still that question: why? Why another movie, why invest in this story that simply can't find room to grow and go beyond? It might be time to say goodbye. But there are more movies coming for the delight of fans who, without a doubt, have had fun with the story of this teenage couple again.
