Sana Dati is my favorite Filipino film of the year (so far)


In quantum physics, singularity is defined as a phenomenon where the past, present and future became interrelated in the space-time continuum. It was discussed in the movie, Sana Dati, and it is the backbone of the story.

Andrea (Lovi Poe) is getting married that day. A videographer (Paulo Avelino) reminds her of her boyfriend before who died. She really love that person, and she felt as if the videographer is an incarnation of the past. She cried, went confused if she wants to pursue the wedding or not.

This is one beautiful story of lost love, holding on, and moving on. I saw it twice, and the concept of singularity did happen that wedding day—the past is represented by Lovi Poe’s dead boyfriend, the present is the presence of Paulo Avelino as the videographer in the wedding, and the future is TJ Trinidad, her soon-to-be husband.

My favorite scene is the movie is when Lovi Poe is in the hotel kitchen, waiting for Paulo Avelino to meet her to elope, only to find out that he stood her up. When she is crying there, you can really feel how she is holding on and grieving inside. She was reminded of the good memories of the past by seeing someone in the present, but she know at the back of her mind that the best way to move forward is for her to let go, and embrace TJ Trinidad as her newfound love.


I really hope that this movie will have its commercial run in the cinemas at the soonest possible time so everybody can see and appreciate it.


By the way, what is the title of the song at the end credits?
