Lucía travels to Valparaíso, Chile, to look for her mother whom she has never met after receiving a letter from her. Once she arrives at the alleged meeting point, she finds no trace of her mother and decides to keep looking for her.
Javiera Díaz de Valdés,
Moments of Love is a great romantic epic with a unique twist! Although the concept is unoriginal, this movie is much better than its other Asian counterparts that have the same theme (Sky of Love, Ditto and Il Mare). The location is admirable. Great cinematography. The theme song adds magic and does wonders to the movie.
Dingdong Dantes and Iza Calzado have undeniable chemistry. Dantes really looks a great on screen appeal and his performance in the movie is a way better than before, not his best, I know he can do more better. Iza Calzado is a revelation in the movie. She is at her best as Divina Buenacer from the '50s, very Filipina. Both of them deserves an acting recognition for their performance in the movie. Gloria Romero is, as always at her best.
However, there are some characters added that are not necessarily needed in the movie.
Despite its flaws, it is one of the best Filipino movies that I have seen so far.
It is worth watching. A really touching love story..
