Storyline

Eternity is an epic romance about a pair of star-crossed lovers Crisanto (Dingdong Dantes) and Milagros (Iza Calzado) and how true love transcends different lifetimes. In the face of family hostilities and atrocities, the two continue to fight for their love until the bitter end. Cholo (Mark Herras) and Maegan (Jennylyn Mercado) are two different people with different backgrounds, finding each other as if by fate. It's as if they've known each other all their lives! But the young lovers' romance is thwarted by their respective families' deep-rooted dislike for each other. Will history repeat itself? Or will love finally conquer all the odds this time around?

A film for all Eternity
14 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Eternity is a film by the rising director Mark Reyes, who directed Moments of Love, Mulawin: The Movie and the excellent Encantadia; it stars two of the Philippine's love-teams from Philippine's number one television network: GMA 7, Dingdong Dantes and Iza Calzado, Jennylyn Mercado and Mark Herras; and is written by Gina Marissa Tagasa-Gil, released through Regal Films.

The film has a unique storyline: a mix between The Count of Monte Cristo and Romeo and Juliet. The film has two story lines, one during the Philippines during the Spanish colony and one during present Philippines. Where the two "present" lovers are suffering the same way as the "past" lovers.

For me the best, out of the two storyline, is the "past" one with Dingdong Dantes and Iza Calzado. Basically, the story here is that Crisanto (Dingdong) and Milagros (Iza) are lovers but they are forbidden to love each other by Milagros' mother (Hilda Koronel), who spends most of her time inside the church with the town's friar (Jaime Fabregas). Milagros' mother forbids the love between the two because it was Crisanto's father was the one who killed Milagros' father.

Like from the "past story" Cholo's (Mark Herras) father was the one responsible for the death of Meagen's (Jennylyn Mercado) father. And their love is forbidden by both of their families.

There's more that happens, but I'm not going to mention it as it would be considered spoilers.

The things that I loved about this film were it's incredible musical score by Allan Filiciano and Arnold Buena, the theme song by Gary Valenciano (I'm not a big fan of him, but the song was excellent) and the direction from Mark Reyes. The film received a B grade from the Philippine Film Evaluation Board, like the other Mark Reyes film, it is commended (Mulawin: The Movie was graded A while Moments of Love was graded B).

"Past" Arc - 4.5/5. "Present" Arc - 3/5

Direction - 4/5. Score - 5/5. Acting - 4.5/5

The whole cast delivered excellent actings, especially Jacklyn Jose as Crisanto's mother , who is accused of being the town's witch. The movie finally showed me that Mark Herras can actually act.

Overall "Eternity" is a film from the Philippines that you should see before you die.
