On another story...
I wasted more unwanted time with my new boyfriend again this afternoon, and what better way to bum around than to watch a Filipino movie via it. Actually, I've been wanting to see this movie since the first time I saw its trailer, but since I evidently don't get Filipino movies here, I had to wait for it on the site. Thank God for these generous people who laboriously upload flicks on youtube just so they can share it with centless foreign land residents like myself. Anyway, the feature's trailer is like that of The Lake House's, it captivates the viewers' eyes all by itself, which ideally makes a clever initial impression. And so, I reaffirmed my curiosity over this award winning production and sat through its entirety. The movie doesn't start with a relative haziness - which frequently happens in romantic stories like this - whereas it goes straight to the main storyline... Manuel is looking for Corazon. I eagerly jumped in and journeyed with him in looking for this person, despite my eventual overwhelming bemusement regarding who the real one might and should be. As the movie advances, I get distinctive clues on who the legitimate Corazon we're looking for - there's a torn photograph on one, and a locket (a pendant or something) on the other. Both had been promised to be danced by Manuel in the tune of no less than each's favorite song, Blue Moon. One is the first love, the other one is his uncertain true love, as the argument on which kind of love never dies goes on. Now tell me, how could I possibly be sure, at any point in that film, but the latter part, that I'm thinking of the right Corazon. In fact, I would periodically ask myself, "So she's the real Corazon?" or "Which Corazon was that?" which only signifies that this movie is successful for trapping you in its own psycho bubble. That's the point of the film, to mystify you. I may be a little unimpressed with the acting collectively, but the story, just by itself, totally made up of what it lacked technically. It was original and was suitably romantic. And it's confusing, which added the little kick to it. It barely made me cry though, but I was truly satisfied.
Since we're at it... I'm quite interested in watching The Last Kiss which is an adaptation of this Italian movie. It's a no brainer, I've always been amused by Zach Braff, especially when he got Punk'd. But kidding aside, I think this one's considerably good, and that the plot is more on the realistic side compared to what I've been induced by lately. Plus, it has a kick ass soundtrack too! I actually wanted to talk more about this, but I thought I'll just reserve it for the next entry. For the time being, you bitches have fun this weekend, alright? I'm gonna try to. (:
