This February, the country’s number one cable channel, Cinema One, sets the spotlight on one of Philippine cinema’s romantic favorites as it airs the movie series of “A Very Special Love”, “You Changed My Life”, and “It Takes a Man and a Woman”.
The three films featured on Cinema One this month star John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo as Miggy Montenegro and Laida Magtalas, respectively. On February 23 (Sunday), these will air in order, taking viewers through the rollercoaster love story of the two—from the moment they meet to the moment they part ways, and all the way up to the moment where they are once more reunited.
The third and final part of the installment, “It Takes a Man and a Woman,” will also be airing on other dates on Cinema One, including Valentine’s Day at 7:00pm.
“It Takes a Man and aWoman” stands today as the highest grossing romance film, which premiered on Philippine television through Cinema One earlier this month. With its extended theatrical run, it also received a remarkable critical response, while grossing over P400 million in local cinemas and over P200 million overseas.
In the way it wrapped up their love story, the film ended up offering more than just the usual “kilig” factor. Bibsy M. Carballo of the Philippine Star said that it “answered the challenge of offering a more mature perspective, according to Direk Cathy, transforming a girl and a boy into a man and a woman with the capability of love and forgiveness…”
Catch the marathon screening of “A Very Special Love”, “You Changed My Life”, and “It Takes a Man and a Woman” on the country’s number one cable channel, Cinema One (SkyCable channel 56). The marathon will be airing on Sunday (February 23), starting at 2:00pm.
