I don't know if I am the only person who hasn't probably seen "One More Chance." Even if everybody else in the country could talk about Popoy and Basha, I would still be guilty for not being able to watch the movie!Maybe it's because I was not a fan of John Lloyd or Bea Alonzo..but that is until I saw "The Mistress."
1) A love song simply says, "reunited and it feels so good." Indeed, even if I was not a fan before, i simply cannot deny the fact that they really have good chemistry.When I read this article that talks about the press conference of the movie, John Lloyd was asked about why he thinks their tandem really makes a strong mark until this time.If I'm not mistaken, he said that it was because they were not pretentious about the real score between them.They did not try to please the fans by pretending that they were a couple.I really admire them for that.Unlike any other loveteams here in showbizness who fool us into believing that that there is something even if there is not.
2) Refreshing plot.I know that it prior to this film, there is the "No other woman" which is a blockbuster movie about a mistress too.but I guess what I like about this film is that it's not just a love triangle.There are a lot of twists in the story and it the characters are more interesting since they are all related in a certain way.It also goes to show that maybe the FIlipino audience need more films that can offer something that is relatable at the present time.
3) Chasing cars,although not literally! Can I just say how much I love the song and Snow Patrol.Making it as theme song of the film surprised me in a good way!
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
4) John Lloyd' s superb acting skills ! My favorite scene in the movie ---Since Bea is a mistress and her thursdays are occupied for the benefactor, John Lloyd says that he is going to wait until the time comes that he would be Bea's Mr.Everyday! :)
5)The ending.I've heard some people argue that the ending is not good.Honestly, I am a sucker for happy endings myself but I like the ending because it makes sense.You can't just expect two people to always end up together just like in other cheesy romantic films.Also, I guess the beauty there is that it's not an unhappy ending.It's just that it was the suitable ending after all what happened.Lastly, I personally feel that it is also open to other interpretations.Maybe they would end up together, or maybe not.It depends on how you want to interpret it. :)
