I’ll make this simple but firm… the film was sad, slow-paced and the proverbial melodrama, but it did not make me cry. The premise of the story should make your mind and heart stir undeniable pain if it happens to you, but I remained poker hearted, and I even watched it in the dead of the night. It lacked emotion it should have.
A man and a woman met in a hospital and discovered that their spouses were together in a car accident. They soon learned that their spouses were having an illicit affair but they still decided to take care of them. They soon got entangled in a relationship while they were nursing the angst and disappointment they felt after realizing their spouses’ betrayals. It was a relationship that will never work out given the circumstances of what brought them closer together but they gamble on it anyway.
The man’s wife woke up but the woman’s husband died. In the end the woman, opted to leave and start a new life, as the man ended his marriage and commence a new life too.
The conclusion was not a happy ending, but I like how it ended. Although their love for each other can suffice for them to choose to be together, if that love was never good enough for them to begin with, settling to keep that love close in their hearts while giving up on it was an act of really knowing how to love.
