Movie Review: Hindi Tayo Pwede

Hindi Tayo Pwede tells the story of Gabby (Lovi Poe) or Gab for short, who finds love in a man who is also named Gabby (Tony Labrusca) and shares a long and deep friendship with Dennis (Marco Gumabao). 
Gab and Gabby are looking forward to spending their lives together, but a car accident took Gabby’s life before their wedding day. Dennis keeps Gab company in her time of grief and finally confesses his true feelings for her. Gab can’t help but become intimate with him. But Gabby is still very much present in Gab’s life. She still sees him, talks to him, even makes love with him. If she opens her heart to Dennis, she might lose Gabby forever. Is she ready to let go? Will she ever allow herself to move on?

Hindi Tayo Pwede  is a beautiful, heartbreaking & unusual love story that showcase the art of moving on with notable performance by  Lovi Poe, Marco Gumabo & Tony Labrusca. It is a bizarre love triangle where the leads are right fit for their role. The script are well written as you can feel the emotion of each of the character on the script alone. Lovi Poe is a no surprise that can deliver on this film as she always gives a remarkable performance as an actress for any role given to her. You feel on her acting here, the longing for a deceased loved one. Tony on the other hand, improves on his acting craft for this film and Marco Gumabao gives his best performance so far for Hindi Tayo Pwede. He did great in his confession scene with Lovi in which his tears just naturally fell. The theme song same with the title of the film is catchy,  heartfelt and well performed so its a good choice to change the original title of the film “In Between Goodbyes” to “Hindi Tayo Pwede” in terms of marketability and recall. Hindi Tayo Pwede with its musical scoring, screenplay and direction feels like watching a classic old pinoy film with new face on the silver screen. So if you want to watch a sensual, heartfelt, romantic, feels like classic pinoy film, watch Hindi Tayo Pwede.

My Verdict:  3.5/5
