Feeling an unmatched connection, Rhiannon and A work each day to find each other, not knowing what or who the next day will bring.

Forget polygamy, hows about dating someone new every day? Well, the same someone who happens to inhabit a different skin upon waking. Great premise for a movie, so here we are.
"Every Day" is one of those giddy teen fantasies riding on a boffo, supernatural twist, that attempts to handle a crazy concept in a serious manner. And it kinda works. Works because the topics at hand - relationships, diversity and why we love - are universal enough to carry a twilight zone scenario.
What could have been a comedic mess, or a ridiculous sci-fi drama, instead turns out to be a charming, clever little film, delivering a table full of food for thought. Sure it gets a bit sappy at times, but the tissue industry needs the support.
strange similarities ...
i don't know who's copying the other or the book...but in my opinion there's no point, the korean movie leave to the audience a little more sensuality and deepness...the US one is too much predictable and sound too much "Hollywood", even if none of both movies succeed to be a real good movie ... Korea 1 - USA 0

Its interesting premise and the deft handling of it set this apart from others in the genre.
You just have to accept its science-fiction or fantasy central conceit because there's never really an explanation, though nor should there have been, and, while its concept is often explored and does certainly play a large role in the narrative, 'Every Day (2018)' definitely doesn't otherwise occupy those two genres as it's deeply rooted in teen-romance territory - fairly realistic and grounded teen-romance territory, at that. It's obviously enhanced by the premise but not really dictated by it, despite the interesting and looming presence it has. The flick may sound like schlocky, sentimental fare but it is far from the sort and actually navigates it's unique narrative rather deftly, quickly getting you on board with its 'out there' elements and making sure that every incarnation of its body-swapping character feels like a proper continuation of the same person. It's never too predictable or clichéd but does usually play it pretty safe, aside from its satisfyingly ballsy and one-step-ahead-of-the-audience ending. It also doesn't go far enough in certain directions that may be tried-and-tested, but are only so for good reason, to compensate for the fact that it also doesn't quite stretch far into its newer territory to be anything other than surprisingly good for what it is, though. It's much better than I was expecting, but the core concept does feel like it could've been explored further. Perhaps that's something to be saved for another day. 6/10
