Maganda yung intent ng film to portray characters with serious mental health concerns pero medyo na-romanticize ang problem to the point of being cutesy love-is-the-cure ala Last Night. I wanted to see sana the darker side of bipolar disorder and depression and how they affected adult relationships, but the movie barely scratched the surface.
Sayang kasi the two leads (Glaiza de Castro and TJ Trinidad) were competent enough to take the issue further and tackle it with more depth.
I also wasn’t a fan of that shaky cam style (chosen to reflect the characters’ troubled lives and psyches?). Ang sakit sa ulo huhu.
The sublime Shamaine Buencamino showed up in one powerful scene, summed up the entire experience, and delivered the feels that I was looking for. When she mentioned how much her condition was affecting her mother and that she knew she had to get better, I really felt that.
Medyo bad taste lang ang ending for me. A troubled girl’s mental health issues was used for a man’s self-discovery? Tapos wala na follow through kay Happy? Yikes!!
