Bring yer hankies, you'll need it

I watched this movie yesterday afternoon, and oh boy, it did not disappoint. Ang oras, nahahati. Ang puso, hindi. I really love this catchphrase.

I've read somewhere that this movie is for anyone who is a yaya, who has a yaya, once a yaya, once had a yaya, or one who knows or is related to someone who is a yaya. So that's practically everyone of the Filipino population, right? Haha!

It's rated A by the CEB -- the same institution that gave Mulawin the same top rating. But believe me, CEB got it this time.

Yep, it's a tearjerker alright, but it's not the usual Pinoy drama movie where the protagonists are struck with one tragedy after another. In fact, in this movie the dilemma is pretty straightforward and simple. It even has a tinge of comedy every now and then, courtesy of the two amateur but superb kids. And it's not the slapstick kind.

Basta, watch this. Completely, absolutely and definitely worth your money.
