Movie Review: Etiquette For Mistresses

The Etiquette for Mistresses tackles the lives of five successful and glamorous women whose friendship is based on their common weaknesses—they are all trapped in the prison of their hearts.

Etiquette for Mistresses shows us the life of high-end mistresses in millenial time. The film boasts of its stylish production design and stellar performances for the 5 main cast that perfectly fits their roles.
The musical scoring is also engaging that balances the heavy theme of the movie.
Iza Calzado gave a great performance here that effectively use her eyes in conveying emotions. Claudine Barretto never fails to affect me in most of her moments as she makes me cry in her breakdown scene which is also one of my favorite scenes.
She is still the good actress that we have. Kim Chui is a charm, making the movie light and feels good to watch this. I love her Cebuano song so much that its lyrics and melody still stuck on my mind. Kris Aquino is also good in this film, could be one of her best performances that I've seen her in a film. She is consistent all throughout the film. Cheena Crab has her own shining and funny moment in the film. 
Despite the film tends to be rushed in the end, still this mistress film has its own dramatic, endearing and remarkable scenes led by the 5  powerhouse women that you can only see together in this film. Overall, Etiquette of Mistresses is somehow affecting and an eye-opener for everyone.

My Verdict: 3.5/5
