Storyline

Julian (played by Derek Ramsay) is on the look out for a translator who knows how to translate English to Filipino to teach him the language for certain reasons. After several interviews, he hired Tere (played by Jennylyn Mercado) to teach him Filipino. Along the way, Tere and Julian become friends who tell each other's love relationship, which in turn are very unfortunate. Towards the end, Tere falls for Julian, but it seems like Julian is back with his ex-girlfriend (played by Isabel Oli) - the very reason why he hired a Tere. Written by Kim Waters

Clichéd but a game changer
9 January 2016 | by cyber_gecko_cdrSee all my reviews

A Filipino-American man hires a translator to help him translate his letter to the woman who broke his heart.

Character development is very good. The script is fine for this type of movie. Great acting for both protagonists and some supporting actors. The story is clichéd and it was unavoidable since most of the movies in the Philippines is a 'kilig' movie.

This movie is a 'game changer' in a sense that common Filipino rom- com movies have a formula, simply put: "Introduction of Boy, introduction of girl, both have problems, they fell in love for a single reason, montage of them falling in love." See? This makes the characters' introduction a filler.

Not bad for a kilig Filipino movie.

In this context, kilig means 'romantic excitement.'
