Storyline

It's the coming-of-age story of a young college student, Joey (Christopher de Leon) who has lost all sense of direction and meaning in life, waking up every morning to the same old day that went before; fruitless, senseless, lifeless. He's a carefree kind of guy who just bums around with his friends. The only thing that inspires him is music. The problem is, he has yet to finish writing a song, which turns out to be the movie's theme song, and the theme song of his awakening. Then Joey meets Ana (Hilda Koronel) and she immediately sweeps him off his feet. A very sweet friendship develops between the two. All of a sudden Joey's world is turned upside down, and his mornings are never the same again. Written by Gorgeous Me

Beautiful and touching
4 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't usually watch love stories. But this is less of a chick-flick, more of great camera work from a distinguished director (Mike de Leon), more of an insight into the lives of people with problems. Christoper de Leon (no relation to the director Mike) and Hilda Koronel provide us with their best performances as star-crossed lovers in this beautifully-photographed film. The Baguio scenery have never appeared more exquisite.
