A melodramatic attempt to tackle a rather serious issue.
The Man in Her Life was supposed to be shown way back 1997, but it became a hot property at the censors that's why it was released a year after. It received good critical and box-office reception in our country, primarily because of Ricky Davao's award-worthy performance as the problem-plagued hero. Erstwhile sexy star Rosanna Roces proved that her attempts to make "serious movies" like this aren't no fluke; her Selya is believable. Even Ryan Cayabyab's musical score is touching. The only problem is the script, which doesn't have continuity. The story has problems in identifying Selya's true persona as to her relationships between Bobby and Ramon. The dialogue doesn't come out realistic. Most of all, the subject matter was treated in a melodramatic way that will turn off most moviegoers who want a more frank view of homosexuality. At any rate, the film is still watchable.
