Alessandra de Rossi and Ivan Padilla's movie "12" : Relatable and Immersive

Alessandra de Rossi and Ivan Padilla in the movie "12" 

Is quitting really part of a relationship? Why does a good romance has to end? What are the factors and elements to be considered if things didn't turn out like what you've planned? 

For every relationship, it takes two to tango, right? And if the boat is sinking, both of you should paddle with right timing and in one direction with synchronicity. If the other one isn't responsive or doesn't show any interest at all, then that's the time you both should sit down and talk it over. 

In the case of this movie of Alessandra de Rossi and Ivan Padilla entitled "12," they both started as real good friends turned into lovers. Alessandra who plays Erika has felt that something's missing with her life, she has realized that if she's going to accept Anton's (Ivan Padilla) marriage proposal, will she be happy and contented? Will she live the happy life she imagined with her partner Anton? She began to reiterate her side, her thoughts, her innermost feelings. And the conflict begins... 

Anton, being the man and an established director, wouldn't also give way to her partner Erika. Their same issue just keeps on circling and coming through, no resolutions were made until such a point that they have to decide. 

I know some of us can really relate to their conflict and issues, but what would you do if you were in their shoes? As for me, aside from the feeling of #relatemuch and immersing myself on some of the situations, I could use some tips and ways from their characters and their very too-close-to-reality lines.

A movie about two people in love always has its audience.  Majority of the viewers, if not all, most likely hope for a happy ending, but it’s really how the story unfolds and the roller coaster ride of emotions that create an impact.  In the newest VIVA Films presentation, that push and pull of feelings is one of the things you can expect, and more.

“12” tells the story of Anton and Erika, a couple who started out as friends for 5 years then became in a relationship for 7 years, making it a total of 12 years of being together.   Anton is a  commercial director, while Erika is a former band member who becomes his stay-at-home partner, lovingly and happily devoting her time taking care of her man.  Finally, the day comes when he asks her to marry him… will they end up getting married and stay together forever?

Fresh from the tremendous success of “Kita Kita”, Alessandra de Rossi plays the role of Erika with complete abandon, just like she is known to do in every performance.  This film is an assurance that this award-winning actress really loves her craft despite her statement before about wanting to quit showbiz, which hopefully will not be anytime soon.  

Playing Anton is newcomer Ivan Padilla who was seen as Hunter, Bela Padilla’s boyfriend in “100 Tula Para Kay Stella”, another blockbuster hit from VIVA Films.  Ivan is related to the famous Padilla actors, but he’s excited to show everyone in the Philippines that he deserves to be recognized for his own talent in acting.  Just like Alessandra, he asserts that he has really put his heart and soul in playing his character.  

In an interview, Ivan revealed that he won an award in a film festival.  He acquired acting experiences in American TV shows, like “Dexter”, and “CSI:Miami”, “CSI:New York”, and “The Closer”, among others, and Hollywood movies like “Here Comes The Boom”, with Salma Hayek.  He is also adept in martial arts, particularly Jiu-Jitsu.  

The chemistry between Alessandra and Ivan is something to look forward to in this romantic drama that is surely relatable to couples of today.

“12” is showing in cinemas nationwide starting November 8, 2017.
