The Film

Hello, Love, Goodbye is more than just a love story as it talks about reality on how working overseas affects the life, dreams and family of an OFW. It talks about the real struggles and hardship of working far away from your family and your country. The film showed how strangers becomes friends and become a family. It also showed how passionate Filipinos are on the job that they do.

The Director

Cathy Garcia-Molina is really a genius in putting a lot of surprises for the audience from start to finish. The audience will surely be hooked as every scene unfolds. She never fails to amaze me every time I watch her masterpieces. 

The Actor

Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards did gave justice to the characters that was assigned to it. The chemistry is remarkable. Kathryn Bernardo is such a talent. Every small movements and gestures speaks and tell a story. Alden Richards is surprisingly impressive and emotions were greatly executed.

The Cast

Kudos to the casting director of this film. The roles of Lovely Abella, Kakai Bautista, Maymay Entrata, Joross Gamboa and Jeffree Tam as Carlo were perfectly tailored for everyone. Each of them have played their parts smoothly and realistically. A special mention to Maricel Laxa, it is such a joy to see her in films like this.

The Script

It was funny, dramatic and displayed great wit.

Take away

The film may revolve around the life of an OFW but the real life struggles applies to everyone. Every day we make choices. We choose our priorities and spent more of our time with it. Our dreams are not served in a silver platter. We have to work hard for it and most of the time we make sacrifices.

Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards showed us another reality that Millennials are facing right now and that is the difficulty of decision making to either pursue our dreams or chase love. 

Love isn’t selfish. Love is patient. Love gives us courage to let go. Love make us believe in ourselves and enable us to dream and conquer it.

Should I watch it? Defenitely a YES.
