Cinema One dives into a summer of love with classic romance films

MANILA, Philippines – Summer is on full blast and there’s no better way to dive into this season than by setting one’s sights not only on discovering beautiful destinations but also arriving at the possibility of a new romance.

If you missed travelling and are also on the lookout for a fresh chance at love, be captivated by these places and stories as seen on films airing on cable channel Cinema One throughout April.

Be spontaneous in meeting a new flame in Boracay

If you are aiming to be happy-go-lucky when it comes to your prospects in relationships, perhaps you could channel Anne Curtis’ character Michelle in “When Love Begins.” Spoiled party girl Michelle meets Aga Muhlach’s Atty. Ben in Boracay, where they develop a fleeting romance to be marred by their refusal to commit to each other and conflict in values, particularly Ben’s staunch devotion to environmental protection.

Let the mesmerizing scenery of Batanes calm your personal battles

In this 2015 Star Cinema film “You’re My Boss,” Coco Martin portrays modest assistant Pong who eventually pretends to be an airline company’s president in order to close an important deal with foreign investors, as devised by ruthless executive Georgina played by Toni Gonzaga. Perfect for those who are desperate to prove themselves and in need of a respite from the pressure their job demands, this feel-good, scenic, and full of Batanes’ breathtaking views of a film will surely fill one’s heart with comfort.

Come across your fairytale summer romance in Ilocos Norte

Erich Gonzales and Thai superstar Mario Maurer lead this 2012 rom-com flick “Suddenly It’s Magic,” where they play a baker who’s cynical about love and an actor looking for a break from the limelight, respectively. They meet and fall in love in Paoay in Ilocos Norte, but complications arise when they travel to Thailand—opening up a meaningful question on whether it’s worth it to choose one’s dream over love.
