To start off, whoever did the cinematography and the lighting of this film are really good. The lighting in the scenes at the chandelier store was sooo nice. The story was well-written too. No dragging moments, just the story of 2 people who fell in love and went thru tough times in their relationship, told and shown in a not-so-typical-Pinoy-romantic-flick way. Also, Dan Villegas as a director has slowly gained my respect starting from Walang Forever. I like what he did to this movie. But then again, he also had 2 brilliant actors who has such good chemistry that I forgot at one point that I loved the Bea-John Lloyd tandem. Sparks definitely flew. Basing it from the movie, I say these 2 deserve a second chance with each other in real life. No more 'former love team' fans to haunt them. I just somehow didn't like how Bea's makeup artist did her makeup here. The eye concealer was too obvious in most scenes that called for her to look stressed. It was fun to see Nicco Manalo as one of Bea's sidekick/gay friend. And my gosh, Bernard Palanca is still hot.
The story is not complicated; its target is clear. All the needed details to suffice the totality of the story are given. I love how it enphasizes the essence of believing in love.
Ganda ng story. Galing ng actors. Ganda ng shots. Ganda ng ost. Ganda ng script. Realistic. Bago. Ganda sa kabuuan. ?? ??
Cheesy yung title, pero mejo heavy yung story. Okay din ung hindi sya kinain ng hugot lines at hindi rin minanipulate yung emotion pero nakakaiyak. Hindi exaggerated ung sagutan pero ang bigat. Saktong sakto at maganda sa mata. Maganda din ang soundtrack.
both actors were awesome in the movie. sana lahat ng filipino movies ganito ang quality. sarap ulitin!
Gerald Anderson is on a roll this year since Always Be My Maybe. And now with How To Be Yours, he is definitely at par with Bea Alonzo's acting chops. I liked this movie. It was so painful to watch as it shows how reality gets the best of two people who love each other. The story didn't feel contrived nor convoluted. I loved the camera work and the film was beautifully shot. To sum it up, this might be another run-of-the-mill, formulaic romcom vehicle for Star Cinema, but this is a prototype. Dan Villegas did a great job!
Bea portrayed her character well. The ultimate hugot line that I loved was "At the end of the day, all thats left is just me, feeling empty." -Anj I also love anj and ni
Realistic. Clean and heavy. Dan best film
