I actually don’t know what to expect when I entered the cinemas yesterday when I watch this film. All I know is that it’s more of a vanity project just so we can call both Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes as all around stars. For what its worth, I enjoyed the film though as it strayed away from the usual tween shit stuff and used the family aspect card more.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of flaws in the movie. It’s as contrived as one can get. However, they tried to make it as natural as they can, so I’ll give them props for that. This is more of a Julia Montes movie than a Kathryn Bernardo one, and though some of the best moments in the film belonged to Kathryn, Julia shined more over all. A bright future is awaiting for them, though I’d bet on Julia more.
This is like a movie version of a Maaalala Mo Kaya episode and the titles will vary from Swimming Cap, Daing, Teddy Bear, Piano, Fried Chicken, Pagong etc. The cast all delivered though aside from Julia, it was Lotlot de Leon who was a stand out. Agot Isidro was great, but I can not understand the intentions of her character as much as I try to. I’m probably one of the few who was bugged by the fail attempt to make Enrique Gil darker.
Overall, an okay film similar to I’ll Be There and Forever and a Day. Decent but you won’t miss a part of your life if you won’t be able to see it.
