Last January 20 Tuesday night we were lucky bloggers to first see this Movie.
There is a strong point of beginning as the child narrates his life and how it was changed.I see Australia as a beautiful place specificly the outback.
The real point here is it`s story was extraordinary,really far from a simple imagination.It is a story of epic,love and mystic.
There is so much attachment between the love of a mother to a child.
There is importance of learning to love from a heart who lives in hatred.
This happened during the world war 2 in Australia.And although it tells about history this will be remembered for it`s moral lesson.
I was touched by this story.
I feel sorry for the animals harmed here.When the Kangaroo was shot they were laughing,and my heart was mourning.
I find it better than Love Me Again

My review:
One night only is a familiar concept for me.
but it`s really cool movie.
Scenes of Chokoleit and Joross remarked as one of the funniest
Paolo and Alex scene as well.
I am one of those who didn`t expect a lot from this movie,
Surprisingly it`s humour was simply realistic that turns out to be wacky comedy.
We were all laughing like crazy.


Jennylyn Anne Pineda Mercado also known as Jennylyn Mercado (born May 15, 1987 in Las Piñas City, Metro Manila, Philippines) is a Filipina actress and singer. She was the winner of the first season of StarStruck, a reality-based talent search show of GMA Network in the Philippines.

Synopsis

It all happened in one night.

Free- spirited and money hungry Jasmine (Katrina Halili) was all set to leave for Hong Kong with her new Chinese lover when her Congressman-benefactor Facundo (Ricky Davao) decided to have his return of investment. Forced to comply with a rather angry lawmaker, Jasmine had no other choice but to give in to the demands of this hot-blooded sponsor lest she be exposed for her frivolities.

Meanwhile, in a movie set, hunk actor Diego (Paolo Contis) was wrestling with a major issue involving a reporter named Meliton (Ogie Diaz) whom he beat up when the latter exposed his shady past. But this was really beyond Diego’s concerns for he had his eyes set on one of the talents on his set, a naive looking extra named Angela (Alessandra de Rossi). As he was manipulating events to get this girl in bed, he remained in touch with his best friend, Pons (Jon Avila).

Pons was a stud who worked as an advertising executive. And he too wanted to bed Vicky (Valerie Concepcion), a girl he met in Boracay. After spending so much on Vicky when they met on vacation, Pons realized that he was short-changed when she passed out on him. Unknown to the man, another girl-–Vivian (Diana Zubiri), a friend of Jasmine, was feeling guilty because she did not give in to the demands of Pons the night before when they went out on a date. So now she was determined to make appropriate amends.

The gay hairdresser of Facundo’s wife, Inday, was equally excited that day. Edward (Chokoleit) was a flamboyant beautician who was finally having his moment of truth with a man whom he has been taking care of for the past months. Edward mas madly in love with Nestor (Joross Gamboa) and this was the night that he will propose to him.

On the set where Diego was trying to get into the pants of Angela, the supervisor of the talents was a bull dyke named George (Manilyn Reynes). She was carrying on an affair with the make-up artist named Elvie (Jennylyn Mercado). Elvie, who happens to be the cousin of Vicky, wanted to end this relationship because she wanted to live a normal life. And this sent the lesbian’s world crashing.

Because of certain twists and turns and circumstances, all these characters ended up in the same motel called Lover’s Hideaway.

What happened was a night of chaos and confusion. What transpired for the next twelve hours would forever be part of their lives…and trauma.

This is my second time to watch this movie and it`s really worth watching again.
I was just curious for the second time .And same with others I thought it was a sci-fi movie in the beginning.The story was really lovely,it talks about life and love.
Clarity captures every viewers heart .
and it`s true that
no one should be treated badly because of their differences.
There are so much lessons to learn here:
How Choices affects us as individuals, our lives, the people around us and their lives, and the rest of the world.
this story is in the mode of goodness

The characters and story are deep yet related.
Great performances by the cast.
Each and every detail are meaningful
Art Direction was really amazing, imaginatively astounding.

There really is nothing wrong with this film. Even with a runtime of about 160 minutes,
The tears of my friends are rewardless.
This wonderful movie is recommended to anyone.
