The following 10 Filipino movies should be a must watch in your movie list if you want to satiate the romantic spirit in you!
STARTING OVER AGAIN
A story that beautifully captures the nuances of a relationship in all its different stages, transcending even the break up and the rekindlement of the love that had never been lost. Love’s forever, even when you might have to start all over again sometimes!
CRAZY, BEAUTIFUL YOU
The life changing experience of an arrogant young girl after she met the love of her life makes up the crux of this evocative, heart warming tale of romance and compassion.
ONE MORE CHANCE
The title itself evokes the very basic theme around which this movie is spun. Love inevitably brings along its own share of heart breaks and break ups, and this story particularly focuses on that aspect of affectionate relationships that require as much maturity as innocence.
WHEN THE LOVE IS GONE
An extra marital affair merged with another complicated tale of a dual love story, When The Love Is Gone will seriously do much to alter your views on the eternality of love, but nevertheless manages to keep you engaged with a fairly romantic setting.
MAYBE THIS TIME
The inclination towards a love story that rises like the proverbial phoenix from the ashes seems to lure the human psyche time and again. Maybe This Time shares a story on these very lines to make up one criss crossing path of emotions.
MUST BE LOVE
Friends turned lovers is perhaps one of the most explored topics in the realm of world cinema. And yet Must Be Love still manages to enchant with this cinematic delight, with of course a third cog in the wheel as the twist.
HOW TO BE YOURS
Love over career or career over love? The quintessential concern that very often causes havoc in relationships and love finds expression in this supposedly romantic movie.
JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
Love is a play for some out there. This is a film on a guy wooing a girl, all for a bet with one of his friends. And obviously, the damsel is one nerdy student who cannot afford to have her heart broken.
PARA SA HOPELESS ROMANTIC
A happy girl finds her world come crashing down after the break up with her boyfriend. She tries to find solace in writing a real life tale based on another love story, that also had to go awry for some reasons. The ending that such a situation can lead to forms the sum and substance of this romantic drama.
A long distance relationship threatening to debond a childhood friendship and budding romance specifically when another ‘friend’ gets into the picture provides the perfect setting for this realistically romantic movie outing.
