Movie Review-ish - ( An opinion of the movie without giving away too much of the plot)
"Horrible. Shameful little secret."
Directed by: Olivia Lamasan
PLOT: John Lloyd Cruz plays JD, a guy who fell in love with a mysterious woman named Sari (played by Bea Alonzo). Sari, on the other hand is committed to her benefactor, a married man named Rico (Ronaldo Valdez). The said successful businessman's legal wife is Regina, played by multi-awarded actress Hilda Koronel. (Reference: google)
The film is not as complex as the title makes it sound, because it didn't really tackle about the life of being a Mistress, the film focused more about the love story than the adultery but nevertheless the film is amazingly great because of the sweetness, tragedy and the what if's which gives such a convincing case of the characters romantic relationship. And to top that of, there is really something about John Lloyd and Bea Alonzo, I started to like them when the movie "One more chance" was released. They are one of the Filipino actors that I won't get tired of watching because their love team looks natural, and I can really tell that there's a chemistry between them.
I have to be honest that there is a factor that you will have this kind of feeling in the end of the movie, and that feeling is being unsatisfied (nakaka-bitin), Well, in my case despite the film's minor flaws The Mistress is still exciting, shocking, and well worth a few hours of your time. So I still I invite you guys to watch this on theaters now and try to explore the movie more than I did.
