Storyline

With barely anything to live for, Emman Toledo (Aga Muhlach), a former dancer, is just about to start his life all over again. He holds the good memories of his past dearly, knowing he will never be able to bring back his better days. An unlikely opportunity comes up when he is assigned to be the dance instructor for the upcoming Governor's Ball of the powerful political family of the Evelinos, a chance for him to rekindle his lost passion. It will be at this ball where the engagement of the governor's son Dylan Evelino (Jake Cuenca), and Cedes Fernandez (Angel Locsin) will be announced. Despite her hatred for the dirty politics, Cedes has no choice but to succumb to the decision of Dylan out of her indebtedness towards the family. Emman is drawn towards Cedes from the first time she catches his eye. As their lives intertwine through dance, Emman and Cedes find themselves resisting an affair: one that holds the truths to their painful pasts, and the memories of a boundless love. ...

i must admit.. felt like a breath of fresh air seeing this movie.
21 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I must admit, I was fairly surprised that the plot/storyline was more dark than the common JL/Bea type that they always! always! make. Of course the melodrama is there. All the romance and light comedy added. Why not? I do give the main actors (Aga, Angel) for a performance that I so longed to see from each of them. But Jake was the real surprise here. I never would've thought he could actually pull off such a powerful performance. The cinematography could've been better but so far, this is one of the best I've seen in local Philippine cinema. I'm not a critic but I must say, given the flaws of the film, I'd give the entertainment value a 9 out of 10.

SPOILER ALERT!!! THE FOLLOWING CONCLUSION WILL DRAW FROM THE FILM'S ENDING!! SO READ ON ONLY IF YOU KNOW OR WANT TO KNOW THE ENDING OF THE FILM!!

The only reason I'm not giving this a perfect score was because of the ending... They just can't help themselves. ughh.. I would've preferred if they cut it off on the assassination scene, then probably just added a "flashback" where they were happy. Just so we don't see another ending where they drove off into the sunset all cheerful as if nothing happened.
