Perfect Valentine Movie: Coco Martin & Julia Montes’ “A Moment in Time”
The phenomenal love team of 2012 Coco Martin and Julia Montes are all set to give their loyal supporters the perfect Valentine’s treat as their highly anticipated first movie “A Moment In Time” will soon hit KCC Mall of GenSan Cinemas and other cinemas nationwide on February 13 (Wednesday).
Produced by Star Cinema, “A Moment In Time,” is an unforgettable story of love between two unique individuals, Jilian (Julia) and Patrick (Coco).
According to Coco and Julia, it is a perfect story this Valentine’s month. “This time, gusto naming magpakilig, magpa-in love at mang-inspire ng bawat manonood. Sa movie kasi, iibahin ko ang mundo ng karakter ni Julia na Jilian. Tuturuan ko siya kung paano mabuhay,” shared Coco. “Di ba ‘pag may boyfriend o girlfriend ka, minsan may mga bagay kang nagagawa na kahit alam mong labag ‘yun sa prinsipyo mo ay gagawin mo pa rin dahil in love ka. At ‘yung mga bagay na ‘yun ang dapat abangan sa movie.”
Julia added that the love story of Jilian and Patrick will surely make the viewers feel the joy, excitement, and pain that true love brings. “Tungkol siya sa dalawang taong nagmamahalan na sa gitna ng maraming conflicts nila ay mapapaisip ang moviegoers kung sa ganoong sitwasyon ay ano ang susundin mo–puso mo ba o isip mo,” said Julia. “Hindi lang love ng teenagers ang tina-tackle ng movie kundi maging ‘yung relationships at challenges sa family kapag may dumarating na mga problema.”
Coco, meanwhile shared that through his role Patrick he had the chance to show the other side of himself. “Madalas na nilang akong nakikitang seryoso, umiiyak, at galit na galit. This time, makikita nila ang isa pang parte ng pagkatao ko,” he said. “Kadalasan sa lahat ng mga soap opera o pelikula na ginagawa ko ako ‘yung nagre-react, ako ‘yung suplado, ako ‘yung hard-to-get. Dito sa ‘A Moment In Time’ baligtad naman, ako naman ‘yung masiyahin, jologs, kalog. Basta kakaiba!”
Like Coco and Julia, director Emmanuel “Manny” Palo is also proud of this unique love story perfect for Valentine’s.
“It is a story about a couple who met and fell in love na biglang may nangyari sa kanilang past na magiging hadlang para ipagpatuloy nila ang kanilang relasyon,” said Direk Manny. “Sabi nga sa pelikulang ito: ‘love can happen by chance, but love can also be lost by choice.’ Kasi minsan may mangyayari sa buhay mo na hindi inaasahan at ‘yung pangyayaring iyon ang maaaring magbago sa buhay mo.”
Meanwhile, the top caliber co-actors of Coco and Julia are all delighted with the experience of doing with the phenomenal love team. For Gabby Concepcion and Cherie Gil, who are playing the role of Jilian’s parents in the movie, Coco and Julia are both easy to work with.
“They’re nice to work with, magaan. Para silang mag-barkada talaga. I think they’ve been obviously working a lot together already so they’re very relaxed,” said Cherie. “I’m enjoying Julia very much because there’s a lot of instinctive potential in her and she’s very sensitive, down to earth, focused, and masaya.”
Gabby added, “Bagay sila Coco at Julia sa isa’t isa. Okay katrabaho ang tambalan nila dahil wala kaming hassle sa set and everything was smooth sailing.”
Also featured in this perfect movie for Valentines, are ZsaZsa Padilla, Ella Cruz, and the twins from PBB Teen Edition 4 Joj and Jai Agpangan.
