Cinema One shows how Piolo Pascual came to be an esteemed actor and the quintessential leading man that he is today by highlighting his iconic roles in four digitally restored Star Cinema movies this August.
While waiting for a new episode of “Flower of Evil,” viewers can tune in to Cinema One’s Monday Drama block every 9 PM to witness more of Piolo’s timeless charisma and talent on-screen.
This Monday (August 8), watch Piolo as the political activist Jules Bartolome in the historical drama film “Dekada ’70.” The role earned Piolo a grand slam for Best Supporting Actor, having won the honor at the 2003 PMPC Star Awards for Movies, FAMAS Awards, and Gawad Urian, among others.
Piolo and Claudine Barretto’s critically acclaimed and classic team-up in the 2004 romantic drama film “Milan” will be showing on August 15, which centers on their OFW characters’ hardships and eventual romance in Italy.
Come August 22, Cinema One will air “Paano Kita Iibigin,” in which Piolo stars as a rough resort owner Lance alongside Regine Velasquez-Alcasid as the miserable mother Martee who is forced to work for Lance. Will their developing feelings for each other make their lives better?
Finally, the first big-screen pairing of Piolo and Angel Locsin in “Love Me Again” will air on August 29, where the two play Migo and Arah, respectively, as childhood sweethearts forced apart by the latter’s family problems. As they meet again in Australia, find out whether they will rekindle their romance or further drift away from each other.
