Refreshing new face
I am glad this has finally seen its commercial run. This is not really a love story, so don't get your hopes that this is rom com. Call it a snapshot of what happens when Ford (Lucero) finds his boyhood friend in the person of Rich (Bagatsing ), who is now a politician, in the surf town of Baler. Ford also fools around with Rich's fiancée while still having sex with another girl. This movie lets you peek on how their lives are. Beautifully acted and written, especially by lead Lucero. All the supports are great and even the musical score is fresh. This is really different from the usual films.
The relationship between mother and son as well as the missing dad is also portrayed in an honest way. The dialogue here is easy to relate as well. Truly, a refreshing face in Philippine cinema.
