In the tradition of Tanging Yaman, Star Cinema comes up again with a family inspired movie sans Sa 'Yo Lamang. This is a brand new masterpiece from A-list director Laurice Guillen. On a time where local movie houses are filled with comedies, indie films and love stories, this film takes us into the depths of the human emotions. It touches the heart and is truly an inspiring movie.

Centering once more with the family and the conflict of broken marriage and its effects on the children, Sa 'Yo Lamang delivered on all aspects. The direction was as expected superb and Lorna Tolentino and Christopher De Leon's acting chops were again just powerful. But aside from these obvious reasons, I was quite impressed by how well Bea Alonzo played her role. She did it with gusto and was more than convincing as she shows the hardships of being the eldest in the family and sacrificing all the things she wants just for her family. The lines were so intense that you could feel her anger, her sadness and he agony. She is truly a revelation in this film. An acting award can be within reach with her performance. The guys outdid themselves as well as Diether Ocampo, Zanjoe Marudo, Enchong Dee and Coco Martin all flashed acting greatness with this flick.

The film is something people could easily relate. A lot of broken marriages are present and this show one side of it. The pain and sufferings one experiences just to get by. I shed a tear or two as I watched this film and remembered a lot of things after the last roll. We are reminded that forgiveness is tantamount to moving on. We as human beings do make mistake but it is alwasy important to give second chances and fogive. Let go of the angst and the wrath one feels within. The heart should be filled only with joy and sweetness. Sa 'Yo Lamang touched me in more ways than I would have imagined. 4 out of 5 popcorns
