What is Squared Love All Over Again about?
The movie follows a famous journalist falling in love with a down-to-earth teacher who dresses herself as a celebrity model Klaudia after school hours. Her motivation behind doing multiple jobs is her father who’s indebted to loan sharks who are now threatening him to remove his fingers.
Good days come and Klaudia is hired for a TV commercial and paid off handsome money. Her partner Enzo in the commercial also falls for Klaudia while Monika falls for the man. This idea of mistaken identity brings joy to the film along with a few nice moments but fails to break free from a stereotypical script.
Somehow, the movie appears to be a traditional 90s romance and reflects the same theme. Monika’s dressing with ponytail and glasses is another sign of a classic 90s film. It’s a good movie if you don’t like too much drama and finally, we will go with the majority of critics who have rated 4/10.
Squared Love All Over Again movie is exclusively streaming on Netflix right now.
