Hope For The Hopeless Romantics
31 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I particularly like the movie not only for the fact that it was filmed only my 5 houses away from my childhood home in the Philippines and you can actually see it in some of the shots (imagine my surprise when I first saw the movie in Canada 5 years later) but it also shows how it really is for some men (british or otherwise) who are not so lucky with the ladies but still long to get married. While the movie itself had a "generic" low budget kinda feel to it, it was still particularly interesting to watch....especially for me as it personally took me back seeing my old neighborhood again and finding out that not much has changed. The script was well written and the storyline feeling somewhat predictable but still worth watching. I highly recommend this movie to anyone.

I would like to add an interesting side note. Before I left for Canada, my aunt was being courted by a British man who traveled to the Philippines in hopes of getting married and taking her back to England with him. It's quite interesting to know that not only somebody made a movie about the whole thing but that it actually happened only a few houses away from where it was filmed. It makes me wonder if somebody back then that was looking out of their window and seeing my Filipina aunt dating a lonely single British man could have been the person who got inspired to write the story for the movie....makes you think.
