Emmanuel is a great provider to his family but is left wanting for intimacy from his wife Audrey. Emmanuel is likewise an active tri-athlete. In one of his preparations for an upcoming triathlon, he meets Cassie, a troubled wife seeking solace at the beach, away from her gay husband.
This is a very heart-warming, not to mention sexy, family drama. Well, what have we got? 2 very pretty and sexy leading ladies plus a veteran leading actor plus a seasoned director equals a timely story where a lot of people can relate to. And that's what I like about the movie, its not unrealistic and far-fetched. Its something that happens in ordinary lives.
The core of the story is about infidelity. Emman (Gabby Concepcion) is a family man-- the perfect husband to his wife Audrey (Alice Dixon) and the perfect father to their daughter, Jenny (Andy Eigenmann). Audrey tries to be the perfect wife but no matter how good her intentions are, her husband feels neglected and somehow lost the "spark". And here's where Cassie (Cristine Reyes), who's half Emman's age, enters the picture to change all of their lives.
So basically we have a husband who feels that his wife neglects his manly needs and a woman in search of a husband. There are steaming hot love scenes in here what with Cristine Reyes and her gifted body and Gabby Concepcion, even with his advanced age, still retaining the looks and the body.
The movie involves complicated set-ups and complex decisions especially when its a choice between a woman who wants to keep the family against a woman who lives under the illusion that time will come that she upgrades from being a mistress to being the real wife. Some might find Audrey to be weak and emphatize with her while some might hate Cassie. Some might root for Audrey but some will also understand Cassie. Every character in the movie is a real person, someone who would do the same decision, even if we find it absurd, all for the sake of family and love. What I like about the film is that it is not a cliché-film. You know, those types where you obviously know what will happen next because it is what's written on our fairy tale books. This is a movie where options are weighed, compromises are taken, consequences are faced, people are lost, and revenge takes its toll.
I commend all the actors in the movie, especially Cristine Reyes and Gabby Concepcion for their stellar performances and giving justices to their roles. Although Alice Dixon has the tendency to eat her words while speaking, it is a forgivable flaw. Honorable mention to Jake Cuenca.
And the ending, which I usually look forward to, didn't disappoint. The ending was fantabulous. Everything fell into place.
