"Britt-Marie Was Here" is a film by Rich Koeppel, and it is set in the TV series of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch". There are several television shows and movies that have a distinct theme for their characters, and this movie is no different.
Britt-Marie Was Here is a story of a television show which may be an extension of the "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" series, or it can also stand alone as another spin off from the series. The characters of the TV show are a teen witch named Sabrina, her younger sister Jazz and a non-speaking ghostly creature named Sully.
When Britt-Marie Was Here starts off, she meets Sully for the first time. It turns out that Sully was actually a spy who had been sent to the real world by Sabrina in order to gather information. After he leaves, a bigger problem arises as it is revealed that Sabrina's mother had died from an apparent suicide, leading to a great deal of soul searching in the cast.
During Britt-Marie Was Here, Sabrina is also seen as living a parallel life to the TV series of the same name. The film also contains the story of other characters from the TV show such as some of the Witch's human side and her half demon half human son Thomas, who may be playing a part in the upcoming movie. The "Sabrina" television show has a very similar plot to the one presented in "Britt-Marie Was Here", and this may explain why both series are equally connected to each other.
The film follows the stories of the four main characters who are continuously confused with what they are supposed to do with their lives and what Sabrina's intentions are. Sabrina herself has a strange affection for the books of the "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" series which are evident in the beginning of the film, and one of the members of the group in the film also reads these books.
In this movie, Britt-Marie Was Here is not concerned with the standard story twists and turns that comes with all TV show adaptations, and the action which happens within the storyline is sometimes quite exciting and engaging to watch. The overall storyline is presented in a captivating way that the viewer would be captivated by the plot, with a certain confusion in the mind that the viewer is about to see something out of the ordinary.
This movie doesn't focus on the supernatural element that is present in many "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" movies, but instead focuses on the more conventional plot twists that could happen in any story. Britt-Marie Was Here makes use of innovative ways to capture the viewers' attention by using the traditional elements of "Sabrina the Vampire Slayer" but infuses them with a new spin and storyline.
The major difference between the TV show and the movie is that the movie tells the complete story of the TV show, while the TV show merely presents one story. Though, this may be the case, the story remains faithful to the spirit of the TV show, with the only additions being Britt-Marie's own interpretation and the format of the movie. The online reviews for the movie is mostly positive, with some critics claiming that the movie's aesthetic is vastly superior to the original TV show's aesthetic.
