The Mistress

After a long month of not watching movies,finally I had the chance to watch again,thanks to my college friend! And because I’m free now of school works, I’m going to do a short review about it. Again before I start, may I remind you that I’m not good in reviewing movies so please bear with me. It’s only a segment on my blog,for update purposes only. Hahaha!

Genre: Romance/Drama

Rating: 9/10

The Mistress is a 2012 Philippine romantic melodrama film directed by Olivia Lamasan, starring Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz.

A young woman is torn between the affections of her two lovers. One is a young bachelor who brings passion into her life. The other is a married man who has kept her as his mistress for years.

Architect JD (John Lloyd Cruz) has a chip on his shoulder about his businessman father Rico (Ronaldo Valdez) never really accepting him as his son. Seamstress Sari (Bea Alonzo) struggles to take care of her family. The two meet by chance, and JD aggressively pursues Sari’s affections. Though the two are clearly a good match, there is a problem standing in the way of their bliss: Sari is the mistress of JD’s father. Against his better judgment, JD continues to court Sari even after finding out this difficult fact. He hides his true identity as Rico’s son, and fights to win Sari’s heart.

“Di dahil gusto mo,makukuha mo.”

That was my favorite line from the movie who happened to be repeated by Sari & JD a couple of times. More about my favorite lines at the end of this post! The movie was great but I think Sari didn’t gave justice about the said title as a mistress. She’s a sweet & nice mistress huh? And she’s contented of being a mistress forever. And the movie is really for adult audiences only,ehmergerd why am I exposed to this kind of movie,lol. Why I said it’s for adult only? Read the title,plus there’s a lot of bed scene & uhm,not applicable to very young audiences like me. Jk! Hahahahaha.

I told you. It’s not for very young audiences. Good thing,I’m 18. Really? Whut? Hahahaha. Anyway,I’m quite disappointed on how they ended the story even if it’s just the right way to end it but for me they should have ended up together! Hahaha,I really want to write a sequel story for this but I know I will destroy the original story. Hahaha!!!

The cast of The Mistress. I really love Mamon!!! The little guy sitting in front of Ronaldo Valdez. He’s a cutie patootie! :3

And to end this post,here’s my favorite line!

  • Sari: Oh nasagutan mo naba assignment mo?
  • Mamon: Oo naman Ate Sari, Ikaw lang naman di ko mapasagot e.
  • JD: Ang daming pwedeng dahilan para hindi ka mahalin pero meron akong isang dahilan para mahalin ka.. Mahal kita.
  • Sari: Ang kunyari ba pwedeng maging totoo?
  • KBrosas to Mamon: Saka kana manligaw pag may leeg kana.
  • Hilda Koronel: Layuan mo ang asawa ko. Tagalog nayan para maintindihan mo.
  • JD: Mistress. Wardrobe mistress. Yan yung tawag sa mga babaeng master cutter.
