My best friend Christina is not the type who loves movies. I always keep asking her to watch movies with me but she never agrees to. Last week though, she mentioned that she wanted to watch Till My Heartaches End starring Kim Chiu & Gerald Anderson. I was like “Wow!”, she must really want to watch it.
For someone who rarely watches movies, I figured I had to accompany her to watch Till My Heartaches End. It was such a rare occasion, I knew I shouldn’t pass it up. I also remember how good the last movie with Kimerald were, Paano na Kaya. It was one of the best Filipino movie I have watched and I assumed that Till My Heartaches End would be as good.
The story is about 2 people Pawie & Agnes. Coming from 2 different worlds, destiny does have its ways. They met in a coffee place where Pawie works as a barista. After quite some time, they met again in a different place. As they got to know each other better, they fell in love.
The process from how they met until they became an official couple was just so nice to watch. Their ever-cute lines, the way their eyes talk, their facial expressions, their actions really showed how 2 people are in love. Those perfect times started to wind down when Pawie started becoming successful in his chosen career.
Pawie started to become really busy as work demands a lot of his time and attention. Agnes, who fell in love only with one person (Pawie), demands a lot of time from Pawie as well. She would text the guy every 30minutes demanding a response. She became too dependent on the guy that her life already revolved around Pawie.
Everything in excess is really not good. With those situation at place, the relationship started to become rocky. Even though they both loved each other dearly, they just had to let go. One line that Pawie blurted out to Agnes really got stuck in my mind and I believe this is a great lesson to all the couples out there “Agnes, hindi lang tayo dalawa dito sa mundo!!”. It’s true, our partners and us are not the only ones in this world. It’s important for us to have our own personal time as well.
The movie was doing great until the last scene. It just doesn’t match, period. I believe the opening and last part is really important for a movie (especially the ending). They cannot just insert a scene to end a movie. It has to be smooth and it has to match the previous scenes or at least has a great impact to end the movie. Till My Heartaches End wasn’t able to do as such thus my rating for the movie reflects my disappointment.
My Rating for Till My Heartaches End: 2.5 out of 5 stars
