Watching tv on Sunday I was bombarded with an extended trailer for Star Cinema’s June release Nasaan Ka Man, starring Claudine Barretto, Diether Ocampo and Jericho Rosales.
Why extended? The trailer gave away everything but the ending.
Even with my basic understanding of Tagalog, I got the following:
The characters played by Claudine, Diether and Jericho were raised by these two women. When they grow up Claudine and Jericho fall in love and want to marry *cue romantic picnics and chasing through fields*
But Diether is enraged by this. He starts to stalk Claudine and even tries to kill Jericho’s character before Claudine pushes him off a hill.
There’s a funeral and the two young lovers are free to be together.
But wait and this is where things get creepy. Claudine starts to see Diether’s character wherever she goes. Is she being haunted by his spirit? Or something worse?
Holy smokes folks! I got all that from watching the trailer. But I’m more disturbed by the fact that the film is trying to be both a romantic drama and a suspense. Will it work?
