‘All the times we fell in love’ is the most watched on Netflix, but this series that deals with the same thing is much better

The love story of Irene (Georgina Amorós) and Julio (Franco Masini) has managed to be the focus of subscribers to the streaming platform.

Todas las veces que nos enamorados premiered on February 14, Valentine’s Day, and to this day it is still in the number 1 spot on Netflix. The series created by Carlos Montero and starring Georgina Amorós and Franco Masini focuses mainly on the love story between Irene and Julio.

The plot is set in 2000 with Irene starting a new life in Madrid to become a film director. There she will begin to make new friends, among them Julio, with whom she feels a special connection from the first day she meets him.

In the eight episodes of the first season, we see how these two play a tug of war over their relationship, which could easily be resolved with good communication or a few words at the right time. Sincerely, I found those moments in which one is almost honest with the other or when they border on a possible relationship seemed quite convoluted

In addition, its ending emphasizes it again in the purest Sophie’s decision style. But they are not the only ones who know their story. Irene’s roommates and friends also come into play, such as Da (Carlos González) and Jimena (Blanca Martínez). Sometimes, I felt quite overwhelmed by the number of coincidences and situations that originate in the eight episodes of this first season and how many people are involved in the relationship between Irene and Julio.

For this reason I think that normal people it got much better at reflecting that ‘every time we fell in love’ idea. Based on the novel by Sally Rooney, the series stars Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal as Marianne and Connell, respectively. Throughout its 12 episodes, we see how both fall in love and separate as the years go by.

They separate and rebuild their lives, but they meet again and ignite that spark they had from the beginning. And so consecutively and with a common factor: being able to say what they feel about each other and see that they really think the same and not give rise to misunderstandings.

Because we are learning the points of perspective of each one. One of the moments that I remember most from watching the series involves them in a scene in which Connell waits for Marianne to say that the relationship will go further, while Marianne expects the same of him. The best is its ending. A closed ending that gives rise to the viewer’s imagination as to how the relationship between them would continue.

As if that were not enough, Paul Mescal has been recently nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor for aftersun, critically acclaimed film in which he plays Calum, a father trying to reconnect with his daughter Sophie. You can watch the trailer below:
