Mary Joy Apostol,
Maya (Lustre) is a girl who has always held a pessimistic view of the rain, reminding her of failed love and other depressing things. Will the rain ever stop her in her journey to overcome past heartaches?
This is a sweet and lovable film about two people who can communicate with each other through a phone despite being in different timelines 50 years apart. Don't expect major twists and revelations to appear in the fairly straightforward story. Calzado and Dantes matches up pretty well. Calzado's excellent performance leads to her character being root worthy and garnering sympathy. This is another of many films where people can communicate despite time/space barriers. This came out months earlier than the "Lakehouse". Compared against that, I prefer "Moments of Love" because the two leads as a whole performed better. The "Lakehouse" is more overwrought as well. Sandra Bullock had to carry significantly more weight on it due to Reeves' being out of his elements outside of action and scifi roles. If you liked this, check out "Eternity". It is from the same director and features the similar elements. More importantly, it also has Calzado in a lead role (Yes, I'm a fan in you haven't realized by reading this review).
