Halos napuno ang preview room ng Greenbelt 3 sa mga taong nagnanais na maunang makapanood sa bagong directorial job ni Direk Joel Lamangan. Ito ang Heavenly Touch—a sexy romantic drama set in the most in-demand and most sought-after "world" today: the spa.

The film stars Paolo Serrano, Gwen Garci, Marco Morales and newcomer Joash Balejado. Marami ang naniniwala na mas magandang follow-up pa sa last year's DMV Entertainment produced film na Walang Kawala ang Heavenly Touch.

Definitely, there are lots of intimate scenes among the cast like romantic love scenes of Paolo and Joash, the disturbing intimate scene between Marco and Jaoash, and the very sensual threesome of Gwen, Paolo and Joash that took place inside a cramped bathroom.

Ang Heavenly Touch ay nagpo-focus sa dalawang masseurs named Rodel and Jonard (played respectively by Paolo and Joash). They are best friends whom, not knowing, on the brink of a sizzling romance. Something just came up nang magkaroon ng malaking financial problem si Jonard and got involved with another masseur named Biboy (played by Marco) kunsaan, connected naman ito sa isang drug syndicate. And Rodel got involved with Sheila, isang mistress ng isang politician.

When Direk Joel was asked why he chose Heavenly Touch as his follow-up from Walang Kawala, Direk Joel says, "We wanted a film that was also dramatic but on a more intimate scale, but without sacrificing the cinematic values, The spa is a very popular place these days. Practically everyone goes there at least once a week. It's an intriguing environment that holds many potential—and secrets. I am very happy that the audience appreciated our movie, It feels great."

Ayon sa producer ng movie na si Manny Valera, who was very happy with the positive feedback, revealed that Heavenly Touch is also scheduled to have an international release. Aniya, "Just like Walang Kawala, it has gotten numerous sales inquiries through our North America based-agent, and Heavenly Touch hasn't even been screened in Metro Manila yet. Sinabi rin niyang ang Walang Kawala, DMV's produced film last year was already distributed in France, Germany, U.S, Canada and other countries. At dahil marami ang nagkagusto sa una nilang film, many are already showing interest in their new film.
