"Mahaba pa naman ang gabi" - Jaclyn
On the course of one night, two lives will meet and change forever.
It was Nyoy's (Ilagan) 17th birthday and his friends decide to give him the ultimate gift, his first sexual encounter. But their plan backfired when the woman they hired turned out to be a lot older than they expected.
Jacklyn (Jose) continues to wait for her potential client although knowing that she will eventually be stood up.
"Lahat tayo may kwento. Kailangan lang isa-isahin para makilala ang tao"
This movie will move you on how people try to find themselves and end up losing themselves but at the same time gaining something in return. Realing that life has a way of teaching you something you do not want to learn. Bringing you back the past that you thought was long forgotten. Giving you a chance to make amends.
With a lovely performance from Ms. Jacklyn Jose, giving justice to the role of the kind-hearted Jacklyn. Angelo Ilagan shines as the soft-spoken and innocent Nyoy. Although some would find the silence as distracting, imagine that it is happening in real life - no script, awkward, confusing. Silence would be the only way. The sound is a little bit down making it a little difficult to hear the dialogues. The lighting was realistic and helped set-up the mood of the story.
