WITHOUT YOU

Without You (2023) Directed by: RC delos Reyes


A couple is having lots of arguments. Are they better off 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘵 each other ?


This movie has a lot of 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘵𝘴.


Maraming kulang na eksena. Hindi ka makapasok sa relasyon nila kasi patingi-tingi ang mga kaganapan. Hindi ka maka-relate sa mga flashbacks kasi wala namang ganung nangyari. Parati silang nag-uusap, ngunit hindi ito nagagagamit para mas maging malapit ka sa kanilang dalawa. Ang mga problema nila ay biglang lulubog at lilitaw. Ang paglalakbay nila bilang mag-jowa ay dinaan na lang sa narration.


The movie also has a lot of 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘴.


They have reliable lead stars. Both of them can act, and their chemistry is evident. Shaira Diaz is a beauty with talent. Her acting is natural and graceful. She can cry, release her emotions—and still look beautiful. David Licauco is more than just a pretty face. Akala mo na magpapa-kilig lang siya nung una. Pero pinakita niya na kaya rin niyang magpa-iyak at manindak. Luis Hontiveros is unexpectedly good. His voice is calm. His gestures are not exaggerated. Still, he effectively represents his character.


The cinematography was able to visualize the mood of the situation. The atmosphere was consistently sad. The scoring and editing helped in amplifying the loneliness and pain in the scenes. The last confrontation scene was the best.


Although expected, the ending will still leave you in shock. Nakakagulat kasi duon na pala natapos ang istorya. Marami pa sana silang kayang ibigay at italakay ngunit hanggang duon na lang.


More scenes could’ve been added to put more meaningful memories behind the tears. In spite of that, the movie somehow managed to make us feel sad—with or without it.
