Storyline

THEIR DREAM BINDS THEM. THEIR HEARTS TEAR THEM APART. Raffy and Andrew were orphaned as kids and had only each other to depend on. Raffy has spent the last nine years of his life working in Dubai. His ultimate goal is to fulfill a lifelong dream: to eventually move to Canada with his younger brother, Andrew. The Alvarez brothers are finally united when Andrew goes to Dubai. In Dubai, Andrew meets Faye, one of Raffy's many girlfriends. They hit it off well despite of their age difference. She becomes his guide, comfort and lover. Seeing the two together Raffy realizes that he still loves Faye. When Andrew discovers that Raffy still loves Faye, conflict arises between the brothers, almost severing the ties that bind them. In the end, what they choose and achieve are not as planned. But their experiences in Dubai lead to new beginnings in their lives Written by Anonymous

a brother's love
11 December 2006 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Dubai is one of the few movies which made me cry, a touching film that exemplifies a brother's love. This masterpiece tells the story of two brothers who were actually torn between a girl. Their relationship is being hurdled by love and by their dreams

The cinematography is great. The film has captured the beauty of Dubai.

The story is excellent.

The actors gave noteworthy performances. Aga, here makes another remarkable performance. John Lloyd proved his worth as a dramatic actor. Claudine is also good, but this is not her best performance.

The movie received good reviews and it was actually a box-office hit.
