I tend to stay away from Filipino movies because of the usual corny-ness and unoriginality, but I had heard from a couple friends that this was actually decent, so I decided to give it a shot.
From the very beginning, you can tell what will happy. Boy migrates to Italy, meets girl, falls in love with girl, and so on. But I think it was wonderfully displayed, though I'm not a big fan of either Piolo or Claudine [especially since Claudine doesn't even resemble a Filipino]. The movie did make me cry, though, only because I could really relate with one of the characters' emotions.
This also has great scenery as it was placed in Italy, and also shows the immigration from the Philippines to Italy, which I had no idea about before. So give it a shot; you might just like it.
