There’s something oddly satisfying about watching foreign rom-com films. From the way they pace their stories to the swoon factor between leads, everything’s direct to the point without shortchanging the viewers. Such was the charm of Cásese Quien Pueda’s trailer that we decided to watch it over the weekend.
This Mexican film splits the story between two sisters, Ana Paula and Daniela, whose lives take an interesting twist as they deal with their insecurities, frustrations and expectations about love. The sassy Ana Pau, friendly and always put-together, goes on a downward spiral after discovering her fiance cheated on her. Tomboyish Daniela, on the other hand, unknowingly creates an opportunity allowing her to act on a long-time crush towards a childhood friend. Their stories are hilariously interspersed with scenes introducing the viewers to one of the municipalities from the state of Quintana Roo — untouched by civilization and rich in natural resources.
But a rom-com flick only works if it has equally capable male leads. Luckily Michel Brown, whom Filipino viewers may know as Franco Reyes from the original Pasion de Amor (Pasion de Gavilanes) series, still has what it takes to send hearts aflutter. Ruggedly handsome guys aren’t my type but for someone like Erik, I’d gladly make an exception. 😉 It’s impossible to resist those eyes! Haha.
So if you’re up for some warm and fuzzy feelings after watching a movie, Cásese Quien Pueda comes highly recommended.
