The Swedish movie featuring on Netflix is about a 40-year-old woman who makes a tragic wish to be 18 once again and ends herself reliving her day repeatedly.

In the movie, Hedda Stiernstedt portrays Amelia, a 40-year-old woman who is dissatisfied with her life and makes the tragic wish to be 18 once more. She is struck by a bus on her birthday and wakes up on her 18th birthday in 2002, "with the chance to relive her best day and make her life the perfect vision of what she'd intended it to be," according to the story summary. But as she begins to awaken on the same day repeatedly, she must discover the solution in order to figuratively leave the past behind and return to the present. She learns from her mistakes as she makes her way through her new world and concludes that improving the past might not always result in a better present.

Remorse, second chances, and the significance of living in the present are some of the themes covered in the movie. As Amelia gives a strong performance, perfectly conveying the character of a woman attempting to reconcile her past with the uncertainties of the present. It shows her relationship with her childhood best friend Fiona portrayed by Elinor Silfversparre, whom she ignored at a later point in time. Childhood connections are frequently some of the most solid and long-lasting bonds we have and maintaining them until the end becomes a little harder.

The movie offers an insightful examination of regret, second chances, and the value of present-day life. Amelia’s journey is an incredibly poignant one as she struggles to deal with the effects of her previous choices and looks for a way to go on. The film's examination of the nature of time and memory is emphasized by the otherworldly characters of the graphics, which have a surreal appearance. The use of ambient noise and music in the sound design, which enhances the overall mood and atmosphere of the movie, is especially remarkable. This is a truly personal story that, is for those who could, speak to anybody who has ever suffered with the burden of regret or the longing for a second chance. The movie serves as a timely reminder of the transience of life and the value of the present above the past.

The supporting cast is equally strong, adding complexity and dimension to their individual parts. The cinematography and sound design of the movie is especially significant because they create a surreal ambiance that supports the themes and message of the movie.

Overall, "One more time" is a moving and thought-provoking movie that every person should watch to grip on the moments they have ignored and the relationships which they did not count upon, it also presents a distinctive perspective on the idea of time travel. Anyone who has ever been stuck in the past and is looking for a solution to move forward will be able to relate to this movie.
