Hello Again - A Wedding a Day (Director: Maggie Peren)
Zazie is in her mid-twenties and has inherited a pronounced inability to maintain relationships from her parents. She shares a wonderful flat with two no less commitment-incapable men – friendship is great, but who needs love with a capital L? Her oldest friend Philip, apparently, because he wants to get married to the wrongest of wrong women possible. Zazie just can't let that happen! She ends up arriving too late for the wedding ceremony, but she ruins the party afterwards by getting fall-down drunk from too much pink champagne and vomiting all over the bride's wedding dress. "It's not that bad," the toilet attendant says dryly, "in another universe, it went differently. There are millions of universes." And after Zazie sleeps off her hangover, she comes to realise that while she has not entered another universe, she has fallen into a time loop, which means that she can try to prevent the wedding again... and again and again and again. Using a quick tempo and likeable characters, director Maggie Peren plays with the familiar tropes of the rom-com genre and hits the nail on the head when it comes to the romantic attitudes of her protagonist's generation.
