“Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!”

At Little White Lies, Manuela Lazic reviews Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. “This film is to Mamma Mia what The Godfather: Part II is to The Godfather. The difference here is that, as Sophie finds herself more or less knowingly following in the footsteps of her mother, both women go through life using song and dance rather than money and favours. To paraphrase film critic Pauline Kael on Coppola’s masterpiece(s), ‘the daring of Part II is that it deepens the scope and enlarges the meaning of the first film.’ And so it proves here, with songs from the first film reappearing as callbacks yet gaining more relevance as time has passed.”
