According to veteran broadcaster Mon Tulfo, he likes the newest film masterpiece of multi-awarded director Olivia Lamasan because of its realistic plot. He said, “Ang kwento ng ‘The Mistress’ ay talagang makatotohanan at nangyayari sa society natin. Kaya madami talagang tatamaan dito at mahahanap ang mga sarili nila.”
Aurora Representative Sonny Angara, meanwhile, got interested with the heated arguments of John Lloyd and Bea in the movie trailers. “Very interesting ‘yung nag-aaway sila. Nung ang assumption ni John Lloyd ay sinasamahan ni Bea si Ronaldo dahil sa pera. Pero sinabi ni Bea na mahal niya,” shared Rep. Angara. “Sa palagay ko magiging interesting ‘yun sa mga manonood dahil maiintindihan natin kung bakit ba nangyayari ‘yun.”
Similar with Cong. Angara, veteran singer-actress Pilita Corrales also got curious with the possible ending of the four-sided love story of “The Mistress.” She said, “I will definitely watch this kasi napaisip talaga ako sa kwento. Ano kayang mangyayari? Kanino mag-e-end up si Bea? It’s a very difficult situation having to love two different men in different situations.”
Aldrin Cerrado, Rotary Club Makati East president, admired the life lessons that “The Mistress” will impart to its viewers. “All of us has something we really want to have in life. But no matter how hard we try, some things are just not really meant for us,” he said. “I think the movie teaches us about acceptance and forgiveness na ipinapakita ng apat na characters dito.”
Highly-acclaimed movie and TV actors Gretchen Barretto and Albert Martinez both salute the film because of its brave concept. “It’s a very interesting subject matter because there are four characters involved, four individual characters na lahat may mystery. Lahat sila may kanya-kanyang pains,” said Albert.
“For me, ‘The Mistress’ is a masterpiece. Every scene and every dialogue is breathtaking,” Gretchen commented. “It happens everywhere, it’s so real. Gustong-gusto ko ‘yung linyang ‘walang babaeng pinangarap maging kabit.”
Aside from Bea and John Lloyd, also part of “The Mistress” are two of Philippine cinema’s finest actors namely Hilda Koronel and Ronaldo Valdez. Completing the cast are Carmi Martin, Anita Linda, Minnie Aguilar, and Clarence Delgado.
“The Mistress” is set to hit theatres nationwide on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.
