-That Ting Called Tadhana (2015) movie review: -That Thing called Tadhana is a rom-com from the Philippines, so if you don't like foreign films that's okay, that follows a girl who runs into a guy at an airport, and they become friends and try to figure out how to move on from personal grief.
-Okay, it sounds cheesy, but it was pretty real and heartfelt. It also was not as funny at a rom-com or as romantic as a rom-com, which I thought helped its authenticity.
-The story was great. I thought it was originally handled and compelling.
-The film is slow, to that is one downside.
-I don't know any of the actors in it, but I thought they all did a great job!
-The characters are real and deep, but also hopeful and easy to like.
-The music is- actually I can't recall any of the music, so it is either really fitting for background music or really forgettable.
-Honestly there is not much to say about the film. Basically if you do not hate foreign films and like romantic films that offer something really realistic and believable, That Thing Called Tadhana is totally worth checking out at full price! -I don't think is has a rating, but it has some language in it, including a few F-words. Good news, it is all subtitles though!
