Pelikula nina Aga at Bea walang murahan, sigawan, sampalan, pero…
Watched Paul Soriano’s “First Love” starring Bea Alonzo and Aga Muhlach.
While the movie touches on the most-tackled subject of love, this time, Paul gave it a new twist by presenting a story of love between a couple afflicted with a disease.
Kitang-kita ang cinematic taste ni Paul sa movie. The middle class characters are restrained in their emotions. No makabasag-tengang sigawan, no predictable sampalan, no gutter-like murahan.
The movie is emotion-filled and Aga and Bea delivered the right emotions with aplomb. They deal their pains with subtlety and showed their character’s weaknesses and strength in a manner that is easily discernible.
Yes, there are Nicks (Aga) in this world who easily accept their fates. And yes, there are Alis (Bea) in this world who are full of hope.
While the story revolves around masakit-sa-dibdib na tema, the movie was full of light and hope as it featured picturesque and scenic spots.
Shot in Vancouver, Canada, the audience was given an ample view of what the country has to offer to tourists.
Edward Barber, on his first film, gave a sterling performance as Simon.
