THE fantasy romance film Rendezvous captured the hearts of the viewers and received fantastic reviews following its successful premiere at SM AURA Cinema 1 recently.
Rendezvous, which was shown last July 28, is a sweet, charming fantasy movie with waves of zany scenes and ripples of dramatic tensions.
The writer and film director, Marvin Gabas, led the entourage during the premiere together with the executive producer Mr. Enoch Cruz. The film had left a memorable message to all the viewers, “Sa mga alaala ay bumubuo tayo ng pag-ibig at ang pag-ibig ang nagpapatibay sa ating mga alaala.” — which received positive comments in social media and good reviews from film critic, television press (NET 25 and ABSCBN), vloggers, and other film directors who attended the opening premiere.
Mr. Jhett Tolention multi-awarded New York based entertainment producer is one of the special guests who attended the premiere.
“RENDEZVOUS” (Tagpuan) is a full-length love drama fantasy film. The story revolves around Balud, a merfolk (a male creature of the ocean), fell in love with a beautiful girl named Mira who lives in a barrio near the sea.
A long-term relationship between Mira and her rich, handsome boyfriend Arthur is about to break. Mira together with her young sister Hasmin took care of her sick grandmother Lola Oreng, portrayed by multi-awarded actress Ms. Gina Pareño, whom holds a long forgotten story from the past.
The film follows Arthur, Mira and Balud between their complex relationships and quest to realize that existence is meaningless without reverence for life. The film is also filled with zany comedy, romantic scenes and drama that transcend the bond between love, family and friendship.
Rendezvous shows us the healing power of friendship and selflessness at its core.
