Entertaining adult drama from Zialcita
2 November 2012 | by Sirfaro11See all my reviews

Vilma Santos (Sarah) lost her virginity to Ronaldo Valdez (Eric), just before she got married to Tommy Abuel (Alfred). This caused a problem in Sarah and Alfred's marriage. Turned out, Eric and Sarah were lovers in a past life and everything seems to be dejavu with the lovers. Things get complicated because Eric is married to Chanda Romero, who can be very possessive.

The movie has an angle of fantasy but keeps rooted with the center theme of love problems between the two pairs of lovers. The usual fast pace and crispy dialogue, both trademarks of Zialcita, will not disappoint. In the end, there is even a surprise cameo of Christopher de Leon.

Overall an entertaining piece of work with a great theme song from Kuh Ledesma, that we seldom hear nowadays.
