THAT KIND OF LOVE

That Kind Of Love (2024)

Directed by: Catherine Camarillo

A character from this movie would often say,

nobody’s perfect but everyone deserves to be happy.


True enough, this movie is not perfect

but it brings the right kind of happiness.


May kilig at pagmamahal silang naiparamdam. Matagumpay na nakatawid ang magic ng BarDa mula telebisyon hanggang sinehan. Medyo matagal nga lang ang naging biyahe papunta ruon.


Mahigit dalawang oras ang pelikula, at hindi kailangan na ganito siya kahaba. May mga patay na oras, at hindi makakasira sa kabuuan ng pelikula kung ito’y paiksiin o tanggalin. Antagal ng kanilang simula, tapos may nangyari namang fastforward sa dulo. Meron ding mga desisyong ginawa ang mga karakter na pang-Teleserye upang mas humaba pa lalo ang kwento.


Hindi malakas ang naging unang pagkikita ng BarDa. Hindi bagay kay Barbie Forteza ang kanyang role, pero nagawan naman ng paraan dahil sa kanilang tambalan. May pagkakataon na hindi natural ang daloy ng mga usapan. Pa-isa-isang nagsasalita ang mga tao. Parang naka-timing kung kailan sila magsasalita at gagalaw. Halatang nasa pelikula ang ilang eksena.


Once the characters are starting to get closer, your attention will shift from the movie’s imperfections to its ultimate strength—the chemistry of the two lead stars.


Beneath David Licauco’s chinito looks are his expressive eyes and face, capable of showing the right emotions on scenes that matter. Even without lines, Barbie Forteza can speak through the heart. Individually, they are good. And together, they are magical.


Kapag naglalapit ang mga mukha nilang dalawa, may kakaibang tensyon at saya na nadarama. Biglang nagkakaroon ng buhay ang mga eksena. Silang dalawa ang nagdala sa pelikulang ito. Pero hindi rin nagpahuli si Divine Aucina na nakapagbigay-aliw paminsan-minsan. Pati na rin si Kaila Estrada na nagampanan ang kanyang karakter nang maigi kahit saglit lang siya ipinakita.


Maayos at malaman ang ilang mga linya. Merong mga salita na sasabihin nila sa simula at uulitin nilang muli sa dulo, ngunit iba na ang epekto nito. Dahil sa mga nangyayari sa mga karakter, mas lumalalim ang mga linyang sinasabi at kantang pinapatugtog na tila pangkaraniwan lang nung una.


Nakakadala ang huling eksena. Kung sa ganitong paraan magtatapos ang mahigit dalawang oras na pelikula, hindi na rin sobrang sama dahil ito’y may napuntahang maganda. Hindi tuluyang nasayang ang galing ng BarDa.


Direk Catherine Camarillo’s first movie is “Chances Are, You And I” and one of the main characters there made a special cameo appearance in this movie. Although not significant, it’s a cute and harmless gesture. Direk’s first two movies 𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦𝘴 𝘈𝘳𝘦, 𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘈𝘯𝘥 𝘐 and 𝘛𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘒𝘪𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘓𝘰𝘷𝘦 both have a running time of more than 2 hours which is unnecessary—given their prolonged storytelling. Nonetheless, unlike the first movie wherein the chemistry is nonexistent, it is finally present on this second movie.


If chemistry is what it takes to save a movie,

then consider this movie saved by BarDa.


That kind of chemistry is worthy to be seen on the big screen. That kind of love deserves a chance to be felt by more people.


We need more of 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵.

For me the story is good, sooo kilig, but not only that, so level up ang acting ni david, very expressive ang eyes and the way they handle words, si classy and i would say, this movie opens the door, to patronize again the filipino movies. BRAVO BARDA, MS. CATHERINE CAMARILLO AND STAFF
