The Mistress, 2012
The perfect drama film of 2012, as of the moment. If you love to cry, to feel revenge or to fall in love all over again, I highly recommend watching this movie. I have never seen such perfect Pinoy film since 2010’s My Amnesia Girl, and this is definitely something I could be proud of as a Filipino. The movie is not a highly budgeted film, and the story is just simply about a rich man having an affair with another woman, but the story itself is very interesting and something you would be curious about and it just revolved there, no violence, no disaster, just a light drama that will capture your hearts. It captured me, made me teary-eyed, I felt what the actors were portraying. What made me interested in this film is the feeling of being hated as a mistress and the anger a legal wife can feel towards a mistress. Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz are one of the best actors of their generation and they never cease to amaze their critics. They are a perfect combination together with an unforgettable love story. So there’s no question why this movie is the blockbuster movie of the year.
Spoiler: It does not have a happy ending, but that’s what made it unique and beautiful 🙂
