Milan, Where East Meets West!
30 December 2004 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie reflects the true feelings of an Overseas Filipino Workers in Italy where Filipino communities can be found. Like Chinese and Indian nationals, Filipinos can be found in almost all parts of the globe. Because Filipinos can adapt easily to any given environment. This story follows the journey of naive Lino (Piolo Pascual) as he searches for his missing wife in Italy. He comes across Jenny (Claudine Barretto), an imposing figure in the Filipino community of migrant workers, whose dreams of grandeur have clouded her need for personal relationships. In a desperate quest and game of survival, the two find refuge and affirmation in each other. What started as a mentor-protégé relationship, Lino and Jennys partnership evolves beautifully into a self-consuming love affair. Until these two are put to a test. Reality bites as the land changes everything. In the end, it matters not for Lino that he finds his wife for he has found himself. And alas, it matters not for Jenny that she sacrifices for love, for she has learned to give, in order to live again. The film is not just a mere love story. It encompasses the colorful lives of Filipinos as a global citizens of the world.
