A beautifully done, well-acted film, a gem
22 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have been away from the Philippines for 22 years. I hated watching Filipino films because they are too loud, the acting is non-existent, everybody talks at the same time, the soundtrack overwhelms the dialogues, the plot is just impossible.

This movie happens to be one of those exceptions. Just as any romantic Filipino movie, this one is schmaltzy, cheesy and full of the kilig factor. Well, we're Filipinos, so what? But this one is well-made. The acting of everyone is not exaggerated. Sarah G is a delight to watch showing different range of emotions without going the OA route. John Lloyd's acting is restrained, multi-dimensional, which is a break from most Philippine actors. He also exudes a magnetic screen presence. It is one of those films that I did not fast-forward.

I wish we can make lots of Filipino films like this one.
