The story follows a married couple, apart for a night while the husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he’s attracted. While he’s resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love.

TRUST, RESPECT, and LOYALTY. The film stressed how important these three things are in a MARRIAGE. I thought boring ‘tong movie na ‘to kasi drama/romance ang genre. I decided to see this kasi kilala ko naman yung lead characters.

Again, I was wrong, hindi naman sya boring. Sobrang tinutukan ko talaga yung dialogue — to the point na bina-back ko pa and all [dahil mahina at mabilis ang pagkakasabi haha, english kasi tas parang nginunguya pa yung sinasabi haha].

All the while I thought yung babae yung magtataksil, kasi from the very beginning kita ko na talaga yung resistance nitong lalaki, na kahit ayun na yung posibilidad eh wala pa rin. But then I guess, naging consistent lang yung film na mas may TRUST, RESPECT, and LOYALTY lang yung babae kaysa dun sa asawa nya. Nung una kasi nag-away na sila dahil may naramdamang something yung babae nung makita nya yung asawa nya at katrabaho nito [though nag-uusap lang naman]. Even if it they were at the brink of treachery, she still managed to control herself. mas nanaig pa rin sa kanya yung loyalty nya sa asawa nya.

I can’t do it anymore and look him in the eye.

I saw in her eyes na may “love” sya for the other guy na ex nya. Their situation was complicated. But she made her choice, she married her husband, and is well aware of that, that she will never ruin what they had. Maybe she felt regretful in a way, but she knows that if she does something for what she feels for the other guy, she’ll regret it. She loves her husband.

On the other hand, yung sa situation naman nung husband nya, TEMPTATION lang. In the end, hindi nya kinaya. After may nangyari, saka lang sya nakonsensya, tsk. Hanga na sana ako sa control nya sa sarili nya. Haay, pero kahit papano, kita ko yung regret nya sa ginawa nya, kaya bumalik na sya agad sa asawa nya kahit hindi pa tapos yung business trip.

A lot of couples go through with problems that questions their trust, respect, and loyalty to their partners. I guess, first and foremost you should trust your partner. Lalo na yung long distance relationships. It is not easy. Likewise, you should be loyal to your partner. Those to come hand in hand. Lastly, RESPECT. You know your vows [for married couples]. Just the same for boyfriend-girlfriend relationship, you decided to COMMIT to one another, RESPECT that. Isa pa, wag magtanga-tangahan, if you know that what you’re doing might give your partner a reason to be jealous, STOP IT na, wag nang ipilit na “wala kang ginagawang masama”. Para wala nang away di ba? Kung ikaw rin naman nasa kalagayan nya, ganun rin mararamdaman mo, so don’t do it to her, don’t let him/her feel that way.
