FILM REVIEW Till My Heartaches End: A well-told story that speaks from the heart


Till My Heartaches End delivers a realistic portrayal of how a relationship gets torn apart by betrayal, personal differences, and too many expectations. Kim Chiu plays the role of Agnes, a nursing graduate whose world revolves around her boyfriend and acts as his greatest motivating force only to realize too late that she also has her own life to live. Gerald Anderson is Powie, a struggling barista-turned-real estate agent whose successful career move suddenly changed his life goals and made him a stranger to his own girlfriend.

Congratulations are in order for director Jose Javier Reyes for coming up with a well-written script despite the tight schedule that was allotted for the project. Though it'rsquo;s a typical boy meets girl story, the fact that the story is being told by the friends of the couple is certainly a nice touch. Moviegoers especially those who have experienced heartbreak can relate to the realistic dialogue between Kim and Gerald'rsquo;s characters, especially when they were on the verge of breaking up.

At the same time, the Kimerald fans who attended the premiere night couldn'rsquo;t help but think that it was inspired by Gerald'rsquo;s rumored closeness with Bea Alonzo, especially when Kim confronted Gerald in one of the scenes and exclaimed, "Naiinis ako sa mga tao. Ang dumi-dumi nilang mag-isip... May involvement daw kayo ni Lea (played by Desiree del Valle)!"

Story-wise, it can be said that this is one of the best movies that Kim and Gerald have made. They'rsquo;ve played their parts very well which only goes to show why they remain as the hottest love team in the biz today.

Finally, kudos to the supporting cast who were also given the chance to shine. Unlikely pairs such as Matet de Leon and Tibo Jumalon as well as Cacai Bautista and Manuel Chua provide comic relief.

Till My Heartaches End is now showing in theaters nationwide.
