Reviews:

5.0          Ria Limjap (Spot.ph)

Mayohan is a window into the life of this potentially tragic Filipina heroine. It is the last sweet and innocent summer rural summer romance right before everything changes and turns into another gritty urban melodrama about poverty.” (Read full review)

4.5          Oggs Cruz (Twitch FIlm)

Mayohan, in all its unabashed and unaffected depictions of stubborn youth and his stubborn love, is a lovely little film that knows its limitations, works within them, and as a result, charms more than I thought it could.” (Read full review)

4.0          Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The film does a really good job of capturing that feeling of being completely enamored for the very first time, the rush of hormones coming through the screen. But beneath that lies a pretty clever dissection of attitudes towards provincial life.” (Read full review)

4.0          Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“In the simplest, almost ruminative narrative strokes, Dan Villegas’ Mayohan (Maytime) reminds you of the warmth and tenderness of your first crush; the facile bliss of lazy laidback summers when time was innocent and smiles were unadulterated joys.” (Read full review)

3.0          Jamo Light (Pinoy Film)

“The filmmakers make the attempt at making a feel-good film without going over the top. In avoiding doing too much, too much restraint was exercised and they wound up doing too little. While it does make it to that feel-good destination successfully, the journey was largely uneventful.” (Read full review)

3.0          Jowanna Bueser (The Birth of Damnation)

“The film has its faults but the lead star is not one of them. Poe shines in Dan Villegas’ feature as Lilibeth. She is virginal but carnal. She is kind but cruel. She is innocent but experienced. Lovi deserves the Cinemalaya best actress statuette.” (Read full review)
