A Very Special Love: Movie Review


Watching this film is like breathing fresh air for us since its been a long time since we’ve watched a good local movie. Ever since Reel Advice started, we haven’t seen a local film that is worth recommending not until now. What we liked about this film is that it is light, it makes you really feel-good and really, really entertaining. It's hard to admit it but we never expected this film to be this good and who could actually say that they thought that John and Sarah looks good together as a couple is a weird person. But even though we were not fans of this new love team of John Lloyd-Cruz and Sarah Geronimo, it actually changed our minds after seeing this film as we felt a good chemistry between the two.

The love story started when Laida lands her dream job - being an editorial assistant for Bachelor, a men’s magazine being ran by her longtime crush, Miguel Montenegro. Miguel, a illegitimate child wanted nothing but to prove to himself and his extended family that he was worthy of the Montenegro moniker, the Montenegros being a powerful and very rich clan. Aiming to make Bachelor number one in the country or else lose his publication company, Miguel pressures his team to meet a deadline in three weeks and this has brought Laida and Miguel closer together, in work and in heart.

For us, the whole set-up of the film was really good. As we said before, we were doubting this film because we never really thought that Sarah could be a leading lady in a love team. Yet, amazingly we were proven wrong; this girl could really act. Congratulations to Sarah; for sure this was a big step for her career. Not only is she a sensational singer and a television star now but she has also turned into a magnificent film actress. The story itself was actually good. it wasn't perfect for sure but with all the romance films that Filipinos get to watch every year, this had a different feel to it. We recommend this not only for dates and not only for barkada sessions; even the whole family could watch this film. It wasn't heavy and yet it was still romantic. It was just right for us. It truly is a very special love.
