a great feel good movie
17 October 2004 | by matthew_ashleySee all my reviews

Actually, this is the first time that i'm going to rave about a teenage film from the Philippines. NOTE: THIS IS A FEEL GOOD MOVIE, NOTHING ELSE!!! So don't you go expecting more from it.

A refreshing change from Philippine cinema, this movie does not have a poverty-consciousness-raising, I'm-poor-and-you're-rich-so-you-should-be-guilty-and-help-me-out-of-this-quagmire feeling. It's just about 2 people falling in love. But, yeah, it did make reference to the communist movement in the country... BUT only in passing.

I feel that Filipino movies are basically static. They lack the dynamism that will move their cinema from the rut that their in. Most Filipino films, i don't know why, will go out of their way to inject a little social consciousness therein. But, no, not this film.

When you watch John Lloyd and Bea falling in love (ahhh, the refreshing dynamics of courtship!), you won't get any social guilt trips. What you'll basically get is... a great movie.

Kudos to STAR CINEMA, for producing the first(!) film that they've made that I liked!

And Kudos to the entire Filipino film industry for doing something refreshing, and not to existentialist (you know, one that is sooooo depressing!).
