Hello everyone!! First, I’d like to say that there will be three posts going up tonight. Second, stay tuned about my upcoming posts. I missed blogging so much and there might be collabs coming up soon!! *winks*
It’s currently raining. It’s cold. I am also sick so I hope there won’t be classes tomorrow. Haha. I’m also afraid to see my test results. I’m not ready ahh! Anyway so for today’s first post, I’ll be reviewing a film that I’ve just watched yesterday. It’s a Filipino film and I don’t really know if it will be showing international. But I hope they do so, it’s a film that everyone must see!
Title: 100 Tula Para Kay Stella (100 Poems for Stella)
Directed by: Jason Paul Laxamana
Production Company: VIVA Films
Genre: Romance, Comedy, Drama
Fidel, starts his college life which wasn’t easy for him. He has a speech defect and he has this ‘three word rule’. During the freshies night, he got bullied and that’s when he met Stella, an aspiring rock star or musician. Throughout their entire college years, Fidel writes 100 poems for Stella to win her heart.
As much as possible, I don’t want to give any spoilers but if ever there’s any, I’m apologising already.
The film is all about Fidel, Stella and their entire college life. Stella was an inspiring rock star and she dreamt of performing in a huge crowd where the people will sing her music. Fidel on the other hand, is an intelligent student which has a speech defect. He can only maximize his speech to three words. He likes writing poems and when he met Stella, she became his inspiration in writing.
The film honestly broke my heart and I cried A LOT. The film also used good music which made my feelings go like crazy. The film made me want to study hard, be close with all my blockmates and fall in love. Kidding at the latter part, haha.
I kind of disliked Stella’s personality but she was just so good to Fidel and she never judged him. Stella once said in the freshies night (one of the scenes in the film), “college is where you’ll know yourself.” Not the exact words but because of that, Fidel got inspired and fell inlove with Stella eventually.
The last part of the movie honestly made me go like crazy. But I really like that they featured Mt. Arayat but the scene there was so heartbreaking. I don’t want to get in that part so much because I might say spoilers.
Anyway, the actors really did good on their parts and it’s honestly a game changer for the both of the actors. (Bela Padilla and JC Santos.) You’ll fall in love with the both of them.
This film is a must-watch! I hope I watched all the films in Pista Ng Pelikulang Pilipino but I don’t have time anymore to see the other films. I really wish I had, though.
Have you seen 100 Tula Para Kay Stella? What can you say about the film?
