An Olivia Lamasan creation made us fall in love not only in the city of Milan where this film was shot, but also to the Claudine Barretto- Piolo Pascual team up as Jenny and Lino. And when Claudine dropps the line “Mahal mo ba ako dahil kailangan mo ako? O kailangan mo ako kaya mahal mo ako?”, sure we all feel that really hard!
