Dubai, Middle East, June 22, 2012 – In a movie season dominated by blockbuster sci-fi action movies all over the world, it is a welcome breather to see refreshing counterprogramming. Once in a while, a brief brainy break or a unique cinematic work presents itself as an alternative to regular summer fare.
In the case of Every Breath You Take, the latest of Star Cinema’s 19th anniversary offerings, moviegoers have a chance to savor a refreshingly new pairing in Piolo Pascualand Angelica Panganiban – two superstars known for their incredibly good looks and serious acting chops. Throw in the mix stellar director Mae Czarina Cruz, who megged the Sarah Geronimo-Gerald Anderson starrer, Catch Me… I’m in Love (2011), and Anne Curtis-Sam Milby’s Babe, I Love You (2010) blockbusters, and you have a very promising film at hand.
This June, TFC brings this exciting romantic comedy to cinemas across the Gulf: UAE, Qatar, and Bahrain.
The story itself is contemporary and straightforward: Majoy (Panganiban) is a woman running out of time: her biological clock is tick-tocking and according to her doctor, her ovaries are “drying up”. Uninitiated in physical intimacy, she nervously but desperately goes out on a manhunt because she dreams of having a family one day.
Superstitious, Majoy has used as criteria a set of signs to determine her true love which leads her to Leo (Pascual), a career-driven playboy who believes love will never be a priority for him. But the signs Majoy is looking for all point to Leo! Can she do what it takes to make him believe that they are fated to be together? But what about the mysterious characters who are bent at ruining their budding relationship?
Can the couple with different agenda in life actually end up happily ever after?
