    Mamma Mia!

    ★★★

    Loved by many and hated by others, Mamma Mia! has been the subject of thousands of comments for years. From the perspective of someone seeing it for the first time, not knowing much about ABBA's music, and wanting to really like it, I only have to say that it wasn't my cup of tea.

The animation isn't the best for its time either, and the soundtrack could be way better. Anyway, although it has nice characters, and a decent moral, this feature film is just not good.

Their performances don't need melancholy scenes where they demonstrate a thousand emotions to win an Oscar. On the contrary, subtle looks and smart dialogues are enough so that the characters protrude and remain icons for the history of cinema. Excellent in every way.
