Reviews:

4.5         Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

“Ledesma has come up with a very well crafted film that is so contemporary and hip in its flavour. Even the exchanges of dialogue between the various characters are so amusing. The splendid production design, the superb cinematography and the very contempoary music all contribute beautifully to a finely orchestrated whole.” (Read full review)

4.0         Derek Elley (Film Business Asia)

“Brightly shot, and lightly played, it’s infused with issues like sexuality, slackerism and unfocused rebelliousness without becoming either judgemental or preachy.” (Read full review)

3.5         Zig Marasigan (Rappler)

“It would be easy to dismiss Ledesma’s attempts at a counter-culture love story to be youthfully naïve, but to say that these issues aren’t wholly relevant to generations before and beyond us would seem deaf to a much larger picture of our nation’s youth.” (Read full review)

3.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The film ends up suffering a bit from a lack of stakes, but its almost subversive use of mainstream aesthetics to expose the emptiness of the main character’s life is pretty intriguing in the long run.” (Read capsule review)

3.0         Fred Hawson (ABS-CBN News)

“The story is so simple that it could have been an episode of a TV drama anthology. Fortunately, director Siege Ledesma injects enough personality to lift it up to deserve to be a feature film.” (Read full review)

3.0         Manuel Pangaruy (Tagailog Special Presents)

“Kung meron man akong sobrang nagustuhan dito (kasama ng OST) eh ‘yung parang study s’ya sa isang (work) environment na people come and go, at kung paano ito makakaapekto sa pagbuo/pagkawala ng isang relationship.” (Read capsule review)
