Lovi Poe: Walang Hanggang Paalam

By 7:30 AM , , , ,

Lovi Poe's most mature role to date. She plays a girl who is torn between love for a boy (Joem Bascon) and love for a man who is old enough to be her father (Jacky Woo). Jake Roxas plays a homosexual detective in search for Lovi. He has a lover (Rico Barrera). 'Walang Hanggang Paalam' produced by Forward Group, Feminine Annex and Pollen Productions in cooperation with LVD Multimedia.

After being rated unsuited for public viewing by MTRCB, 'Walang Hanggang Paalam' finally had its world premiere last Saturday, July 25, 2009, 6:15 pm at the CCP Little theater for the Cinemalaya/Netpac competition.

The third film of filmmakers Paolo Villaluna and Ellen Ramos, 'Walang Hanggang Paalam' is the final installment to their “love trilogy” (after 'Ilusyon' and 'Selda') where they explore the nuances and tragedy of human interaction. Walang Hanggang Paalam tells the story of four lonely souls whose search for the meaning of love will conclude in tragic self-discoveries.

An 18-year old free spirit, Maria (Lovi Poe) decides to finally lose her virginity to her boyfriend Ryan (Joem Bascon) by eloping to Baguio on a weekend getaway. Arturo (Jake Roxas,) a private investigator facing his own demons, has been tapped by Maria’s family to search for her. At the same time, a 48 year-old Japanese businessman, Yoshi (Jacky Woo,) upon the discovery of his terminal illness, decides to go back to the Philippines to search for his long-lost Filipina love who left him decades ago. Their paths will lead them to a hotel in Baguio but each will face a crossroad that will conclude in a resigned understanding that we cannot escape ourselves.

'Walang Hanggang Paalam' is a disquieting treatise on how love, like life itself, is underlined and decided by fate, and like their previous two films, Paolo Villaluna and Ellen Ramos’ third film is an exercise in classicist forms, delivering a stylish and a very restrained approach in narrative filmmaking.
