Kasal Teaser - Cinemalaya 2014 Director's Showcase

Kasal (The Commitment) is a slice of life drama of a gay couple whose resolve to stay together is challenged as they attend a wedding. It also is an examination on how a gay couple navigates through the different institutions in Philippine society.

Oliver Aquino and Arnold Reyes bring life to a gay couple who experience highs and lows during a weekend together. 

Their resolve to stay together is challenged as they attend a wedding in Batangas. Paolo (played by Oliver) is a filmmaker who does not believe in marriage. Meanwhile, Sherwin (played by Arnold) is a lawyer who believes marriage is necessary to protect the rights of individuals entering into such commitment. They have been together for three years but on their second year, Paolo is caught committing infidelity, putting a strain on their relationship. 

Six months after the indiscretion, the couple is still recovering from the incident. The lovers engage in a loud and dramatic confrontation scene and even come to blows during a fist fight. But they also have a love scene that Direk Jay Altarejos describes as "realistic."
