REEL DEAL Movies and Television: Forever and a Day

Star Cinema Presscon

We known them for their movies but we have not seen them together together in one movie. Another of Star Cinema has to offer for its 18th year. Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina who also directed many blockbusters like A Very Special Love, My Amnesia Girl, One More Chance and You Got Me! Sam might have been part of direk Cathy's movies but its the first time for her to work with KC Concepcion. Coincidently we also worked with Matet De Leon as part of the cast which is also brings the daughters of the the Superstar Nora Aunor and the Megastar Sharon Cuneta.

Though this would be another love story and cheesy lines, but beneath that is a deep and inspiring story of Eugene and Raffy. The story is a about a man who pushes himself to the limits, man who is always up for the challenge. He is proud. He only lives for himself. He then meets a woman one day, a woman who is more cautious in life, a woman who teaches him to embrace and appreciate life, love and all its smallest blessings. Together they take the journey that teaches them to conquer their fears and the humility and courage to accept the things that one cannot control. But will love prevail even if destiny tries to prevent it from happening.

"It took me a day to fall in love... and it will take forever to say goodbye." -Eugene Servero

"Kaya mo bang mahalin ang isang taong alam mong mawawala sa'yo?" - Raffy Salvador

The line, those beautiful memorable lines said by Sam Milby (as Eugene Servero) and KC Concepcion (as Raffy Salvador) "Forever and a Day" boast of a new and big screen team up. Very good friends in real life, we all know that for the fact that Sam and KC are not an item. "Star Cinema never banks on the relationship. Alam mo 'yung hindi naman tayo 'yung tipo na nagki-create na kunwari nagkagustuhan ang mga artista para kumita ang pelikula. You know, John Lloyd and Bea, they have always been open na wala naman sa kanilang namamagitan and yet nainiwala kang meron 'pag pinanood mo sila. Kailangan mong patunayan sa audience na uy sandali, marunong si KC, marunong si Sam, uy sandali lang bagay sila! Huwag mo silang tignan as SAM and KC mo 'yung kuwento. So dapat 'pag nanood ka na, sana hindi mo na makita si KC, sana hindi mo makita si Sam, ang makikita mo na si Eugene at si Raffy! Kapag hindi ako naniwala dun baka hindi na tayo makapag-produce ng pelikula with new tandems." Direk Cathy enthused and futhers, "Give it a try. Bagong tandem po 'tong alam ko. Meron mga taong nag-iisip, pwede ba sila? Pero di ba minsan kailangan mo muna tikman para malaman ang lasa? So kailangan n'yo panoorin para malaman n'yo kung meron. Sam and KC are really good in this film. They are a revolution. I got more than what I expected. I just admire their professionalism!"

Forever and a Day showing in cinemas June 15.
