Alluring and sensual in its own way
12 August 2018 | by oagawinSee all my reviews

I particularly like this entry. It's a slow burn; I say, as slow as the generations you see on the screen. There's also something quite magical in its performances. See, Perla Bautista starts off quite dreamy in her first scenes with Menggie Cobarrubias - subtle and controlled, yet rather colorless and unbalanced. And Dante Rivero, too. He begins as this unexciting character, in need of a push.

But in the second act, when Bautista and Rivero share the screen, there's this bewitching chemistry we just can't deny. Probably, it's brought about by the lack of conflict on the first act, but Bautista shines more when with Rivero.

And it tells so much about first loves, too. That undeniable sense of familiarity and history. I clung in their scenes, wishing for more, but that will never come, and it's what makes this film alluring and sensual in its own way.

PS. Romnick Sarmienta still makes me swoon with how he handles his characters on screen. His silent and subdued control makes seeing this film all the more worth the while.
