The turgid love song of Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) and Hardin Scott (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) goes into the second round. However, the young luck seems to be over again. Tessa cannot forgive Hardin for lying to her and so she tries to make a new start without him. She succeeds quite well, until one evening after a few drinks she calls him too much. Promptly Hardin stands in front of her again and despite considerable doubts the romance flares up again. In fact, this time everything seems to go well - until Hardin reveals once again that he just can't shake off the demons of his past.

After "After Passion" was quite successful especially in Germany, now "After Truth", the film adaptation of the second band of the popular Young Adult series by Anna Todd, is coming to our cinemas. There was a little hope in the run-up that the movie would be better than its predecessor. Finally, Roger Kumble, a filmmaker who proved with "Ice Cold Angels" that stories like this one can be told with bite, subtle humour and interestingly drawn characters - all aspects in which "After Passion" has obvious flaws. In fact, part 2 works a little better than the first one. Thus target group and fans are absolutely satisfied. That's all that really matters. Nevertheless, it also has to be said that "After Truth" is far from being a good movie.

The story is made up of already countless times used set pieces of similar teenie-romances and never gets beyond the level of a bravo-photo love story. This may not bother the target audience, but it ensures that story and protagonists are absolutely interchangeable. The soundtrack also sounds the same as in all other Young Adult film adaptations of the last years. Originality? No way! The characters are drawn absolutely one-dimensional and are only embodied by actors with limited talent. Especially Hero Fiennes Tiffin reveals in the more dramatic moments that he might break girls' hearts, but he definitely can't win any awards for his acting.

Now, as is well known, one should try to keep part 2 closer to the book template, which should offer more to the fans in terms of sex and eroticism. Therefore the film was designed for an R-rating in the USA. In Germany it remains at the release from 12 years on, because the creators didn't really make this sequel more "erotic", but simply made the language a bit more slippery. Instead of "I want to sleep with you" Tessa is now allowed to say "fuck me" more clearly. UiUiUiUi, they dare to do something!

It is basically pleasing that rental companies are bringing audience hits like "After Truth" to the cinemas again and every visitor helps the heavily battered cinema landscape. And if the target group is happy, that's perfectly okay. Nevertheless, one can and must also criticize when a film throws around clichés like this and lacks any form of own ideas or interesting characters. Therefore, the following applies: As a movie "After Truth" really isn't that good - but for fans of the first part this sequel is absolutely worth watching!
