LGBT love story in the Philippines
19 December 2017 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Great storyline, great acting, realistic plot. The weakest piece of the puzzle here is the editing... it's overly long and complicated, and tighter editing would have fixed MOST of that. Enzo (Escudero) and Adong (Sandejas) were always extra close as kids. As teenagers and adults, their lives have taken different paths, but they are still best friends. Enzo knows he is gay, and rejected by his father. Adong, or Maynard, as he calls himself now, dabbles in gay for pay, just for the money... of course, but has a wife and a kid. Their paths intertwine, but they are at very different places in where they want their lives to go. Adong's wife re-appears, and that complicates things even more. So many endings... it seemed to have ended, then another ending, then another. The script and the editing needed tightening up here. The basic story was pretty good. The timeline kept jumping forward and back, so that added some un-necessary oddness. This was Ronaldo Bertubin's first directing job, so some can be forgiven. Currently showing on FilmRise channel.
