"My Only U" hits P11 million on opening day

Vhong Navarro and Toni Gonzaga's Star Cinema movie titled My Only ü is being screened at Guam until November 20, 2008.

A young woman dying of a rare disease and a young landlordtry to beat the odds by living life to the fullest and making the most of theirtime together here on earth.

Starring Vhong Navarro and Toni Gonzaga, My Only ü injects humor and love in what isotherwise a topic that many refuse to talk about: death. Winona (Toni) comesfrom a family whose members often pass away before reaching the age of 25. Herneighbor Bong (Vhong), who happens to manage the compound where she lives, issecretly in love with her but he couldn't find the courage to propose to her.

Just like in the 1972 hit romance-drama Love Story (starring Ryan O'Nealand Ali MacGraw), Bong is confronted with the same dilemma: What would you doif the girl you love has only a few days to live? How much is he willing tolove knowing that he will just lose her before long?

The latest 15th anniversary offering of Star Cinema, MyOnly ü, will have its regularscreening in Guam until November 20 at the Micronesia Mall. Last October 29, MyOnly ü opened in Philippine cinemas nationwide and reached box-office sales amounting to P11 million, according to Star Cinema.


This romantic comedy is directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, the same person whohelmed the blockbuster hit A Very Special Love starring Sarah Geronimoand John Lloyd Cruz.

"It's a move that will capture your hearts di langdahil sa character ni Vhong at character ko, kundi dahil sa storya mismo ngpelikula," says Toni. "Sa pelikulang ito, pag-uusapan kung paano monga ba mamahalin ang isang taong di na magtatagal or wala kang kasiguraduhan.At paano mo mamahalin ang isang taong sarado na ang puso sa pagmamahal. Paanomo bubuksan ang puso mo sa pagmamahal and at the same time, para sa mga taongayaw ng magmahal. Paano mo bubuksan ang puso mo sa isang tao na di ka namansigurado kung habambuhay kang nandyan para sa kanya. Because this is the storyabout someone who is leaving at makikita n'yo naman ang mangyayari kungmamamatay siya o hindi."

Vhong points out, "Si Toni kasi, mamamatay e, may sakitsiya. Yung character ko gagawin ang lahat para sa kontiong sandali para mabigaymo lahat na di pa niya nagagawa kasi konti na lang ang buhay niya, maiksi nalang ang buhay niya. Sa sobrang mahal mo sya, lahat gagawin mo para sa kanya.Di baleng mapabayaan mo trabaho mo, mga kaibigan mo basta para sa kanya gagawinmo lahat kaya 'my only u.'
