JP Habac's I'm Drunk, I Love You. has another film, Jerrold Tarog's Angelito ( a sequel to Heneral Luna), attached to it before it started. I decided to make another review for that short film.
I'm Drunk, I Love You is about Carson whose deeply in love with his best friend Dio. Before their college graduation, they go on a road trip where they discovery their feelings from each other.
As the title suggest, almost the entire film we see the characters drinking. The theme is generic friend-in-love- with-his/her-best-friend it has been done several times in mainstream films. But what's unique about this film is that it's realistic portrays of the said theme. It may has memorable lines but it never have any common mainstream film formula. It only has music and emotions. Actually this not just a romantic film, it's also a musical film. Music plays the background to tell the viewers what's happening. Emotions as a characters' dialogue whenever they became silent. The two leads ( Maja Salvador and Paolo Avellino) brilliantly conveyed that emotions especially at the end of the movie.
Director JP Habac's first full length film is one the year's best! I'm Drunk, I Love You is a rare Filipino film. Anyone can relate to this film especially if it happens to you in real life. It's worth a recommendations!
