Brillante Mendoza gave a kiss to Nora Aunor as soon as he saw her during the opening night of the 20th French Film Festival held last night, June 3, at Greenbelt in Makati City. This has been their first public appearance together since Nora was unable to attend the world premiere of Taklub in Cannes. "From Thy Womb hanggang dito sa Taklub, it‘s always been a pleasure working with her. Wala naman kaming naging problema at all," said Direk Brillante about the Superstar. "I think she deserves all the recognition. Malaking parte siya ng pelikula. Congratulations at well deserved ang lahat ng natatanggap ng pelikula na ito." In response, Nora Aunor simply said, "Panoorin na lang ang pelikula. Ang pelikula ang magsasabi ng katotohanan."
