ABS-CBN's movie cable channel Cinema One will air Star Cinema's hit A Love Story on Sunday Cine Premiere. This movie about three people with a complicated love story will air on at 8:00 pm.
Starring Maricel Soriano, Angelica Panganiban, and Aga Muhlach, A Love Story is helmed by cinematic genius Maryo J. delos Reyes. This is considered one of Star Cinema's biggest critical and commercial successes in 2007. It also boasts of a casting coup along with Dante Rivero, Chin Chin Gutierrez, TJ Trinidad, RS Francisco, Carla Humphries, and John Arcilla.
Written by Vanessa Valdez who also co-wrote the equally impressive One More Chance, A Love Story carries the famous tagline "In the greatest love affairs, there is a man...a woman...and a wife who comes between them." Henceforth ushering to the intriguing catchphrase ‘Who's the Wife, Who's the Mistress?' Suffice to that, with the movie presented in a non-linear manner and witholding key information, the movie leads to an unanticipated and astounding revelation.
Ian Montes (Aga Muhlach) is a picture of success. Despite
being a son of a shipping tycoon, Ian refused to ride in his father's
empire. He built his own real estate
company and earned his first million at a very young age. Driven by his
ambition to become better, if not as good as his father, Ian managed to make it
on his own. But behind all the glory is a man yearning for love and
recognition. Wounded from the abandonment of their mother when he was 17 and
desperate for his father's approval, Ian longed for someone who can and will
love him unconditionally.
He felt this twice when he met two women who would change his life forever-Joanna (Maricel Soriano) and Karyn (Angelica Panganiban). Joanna Villanueva is a picture of quiet confidence and success. Healing from a broken relationship with her ex-husband, Joanna found love again when she rescued Ian from a water skiing accident. Being a doctor, Joanna nurtured Ian, showered him with love and attention. With her, Ian found the home he sorely missed and a bliss he never thought he'd have.
Then Ian met Karyn Torres; a sensual and worldly flight stewardess who filled him with excitement and spontaneity and whom he found a side of life he hungered for. Both women left Ian with a choice and in the end, Ian, Joanna and Karyn learn the true meaning of unconditional love and forgiveness; but in the most painful ways.
A Love Story broke all box office records in 2007 and ran for over five weeks in cinemas nationwide. It reflected the Diamond Star's viability and ability to still capture a new generation of moviegoers. It also allowed Aga Muhlach to establish himself as one of the premiere leading men of romantic dramas in local cinema.
Don't miss the Philippine television premiere of A Love Story on June 15 at 8:00 pm on Cinema One Channel 56 in Metro Manila (available at SkyCable Platinum, SkyCable Gold, and SkyCable Silver) and other quality cable operators nationwide.
