It’s about how true love waits for, hopes for and needs one more chance…
The moment I saw the trailer of a Filipino movie called One More Chance, I already knew it would end up in my blog. I rarely feature filipino dramas or movies in here primarily because very few offer any English subtitle. I am so happy that the DVD versions of the recently released films from big production companies are already subtitled. This movie is set to be released next month.
The movie stars John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo from the huge TV hit “Maging Sino Ka Man” (Whoever You Are).
In a nutshell, it’s a love story of two people who are in a relationship for 5 years but she found out that she needs to end it to find herself. He begs her not to leave him but she didn’t listen. Then he moved on, butnot without having a hard time trying to get her back first and then when nothing is working, he let her go. In the process of finding herself, she realized that she can’t go on living without him so she tried to get him back only to find out that someone else is taking care of him.

The dialogue lines are heart wrenching that left me sighing…
She said: “Ten years from now, do you think we will still be like this?”
He said: “11, 12, 13, 14 forever and ever!”
She said: “Promise?”
He said: “Promise!”
When love ends…
He said: “Five years, you will throw it just like that?”
She said: “I need to do this. You also need this.”
He said: “But, you are the one I need.”
She said: “I don’t even know if what I’m doing is right anymore, but what I know is that I need to end this.”
He said: “Basya, do you still love me?”
She said: “Popoy, I’m sorry…”
If you still can fix it, try, but if this is really what both of you need…then just be strong, it will be hard and painful but hopefully all the pain would be worth it…
How long should you hold on…
He said: “Five minutes…just five seconds…promise”! 1…2…3…4…please…5
How soon should you let go…
He said: “Bas…”
She said: “Popoy, this is Mark, my new officemate. Mark, this is Popoy.”
Mark: “Hi, I’m Mark.”
He said: “Not so nice to meet you. Why are you so dead-set in getting a new boyfriend?”
Mark: “Please, stop it”.
He said: “You’re just hunkier than me but you won’t be able to pinned me down!”
She said: “Popoy, please go home!”
He said: “I love you so much and it is so painful”!
How do you move on…
when you realized that HE is still the one, but then he got someone new..
She said: “I am the one who wanted it, right? but why does it hurt so much?
She said: “The truth is, up to this day, I am still hoping that you’ll tell me that I am still the one, let me be the one, let me be your only one again.”
He said: “She loved me at my worst. You had me at my best and you chose to break my heart…”
For anyone who has loved and lost…
