Avel x Matteo’s passion project
- ABS-CBN Publishing | 11 October 2018
Nowadays, the perspective of ‘love’ changes and it affects how millennials treat love. In this regard, ‘the hows of us’ will set a new ground on the old behaviors and give a better influence on the way we understand love.
ABS-CBN Publishing and Star Cinema release The Hows Of Us: How to Love and Unlove, a companion piece to the upcoming The Hows Of Us movie, starring Kathryn Bernardo as George and Daniel Padilla as Primo, and directed by Ms. Cathy Garcia-Molina.
George has big dreams and she's on her way to becoming a doctor while Primo is just as big a dreamer and wants to become a famous musician someday. Here are the unsaid thoughts and feelings of Kathryn, Daniel and the cast about the movie.
“Ang dami na naming ginawa ni Kathryn na movies about relationships pero iba ito. Bakit nga ba tayo naghihiwalay at bakit tayo nagse-stay?” —Daniel on doing THOU with Kathryn.
“Siguro ‘yon din ‘yong parang hinihingi sa amin. Ang bilis ng lahat. Mas nakaka-relate sila kapag ganito. Naging challenge din talaga na ang dami na naming nagawa ni DJ so they always ask us ano pa nga ba ang next naming ibibigay,” —Kathryn on the perception that there is an attempt to hasten the maturity in the roles that they play.
“I didn't go through any workshops.” —Darren shares that his character is going to be emotional so that's something his fans really need to watch out for.
“Sobrang geek ako ng Filipino Pop Culture. Noong unang araw ko sa set, kinabahan ako kasi ang bati niya sa ‘kin ‘artista ka ba talaga,’ sabay ‘joke lang’,” —Juan Miguel Severo on the Cathy Garcia-Molina experience. He also adds that he was waiting on the moment when Direk would shout at him for his performance but it never happened.
“Kapag nagbigay siya sa ‘yo ng detalye at na-absorb mo ‘yon, kuha mo na ‘yon. Sobrang gandang learning experience for an actor na nag-aaral din ng film-making,” —Alwyn on the Cathy Garcia-Molina experience.
“Parang first time every time.” —Kit on the Cathy Garcia-Molina experience.
“She was one of my bucketlist directors in showbiz,” Ria shares as she giggles about being able to work with Direk Cathy before her mom and brother did.
“Maraming nagda-doubt sa capacity ng artista ko especially Kathryn. Hindi, ilalabas ko ang galing ni Kathryn and she did it with flying colors,” —Direk Cathy on directing Kathryn and Daniel in THOU.
Aside from that Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina said, “At the end of the day, it is wholesome.” Despite depicting a mature role for Kathryn and Daniel, direk Cathy claims that she does not need to direct a sex scene in order to portray a serious relationship in her film.
