My bff Roxanne and I decided to watch the Tagalog film " No Other Woman".
To tell you honestly, I didn't expect too much with the story
because I thought it's very typical and predictable especially the title itself.
Fortunately enough, this film did not disappoint. The plot isn't new. We've seen them several times in older Tagalog films. But the actresses and actors of our generation portrayed the role well plus many people can relate.
However, you know what excites me the most while watching the film? Homay! Anne and Cristine's accessories and outfits.
Since I'm addicted with leopard prints lately, I love Anne's leopard print outfits plus the gold necklaces. She's very sophisticated and seductive in this movie. Plus, only Anne can do the jet ski scenes with shades - and style!
On the other hand, my favorite outfit of Cristine's are the yellow one with belt with multi-colored skirt and the purple top with gold plated necklace. Plus, blue dress with nude heels and belt. I super love it!
Another thing that I liked in this movie is how the two lead actresses managed to stick to their characters not only with the way they act and say their lines, but also with the way they dress up. Kudos to their fashion stylists!
Did you also notice how different their hair & makeup looks were? Cristine's was more polished, clean and classy: clean face, neat hair, and soft pink lips, while Anne's was more of the sexy look - smoky eyes, nude lips, sexy curls. It showed how different they were supposed to be in the movie. Oh, I enjoyed the fashion statement of this film.
By the way, here are some of our fun shoot after watching " No Other Woman".
Here are some of the quotable quotes from the film:
Anne Curtis: (as the sophisticated and seductive playgirl / heiress Kara Zalderiaga)
I know the market, because I AM the market.
No pressure. Just shut up and kiss me. And don’t you dare fall in love with me.
I’m not a mistress. I never was and I never will be one.
A woman will only be a mistress if there’s an emotional attachment.
Paano mo naman malalaman na masarap pala pag di mo titikman? Kahit alam mong bawal, labanan mo cos’ eventually your body will just get used to it.
You can call me anything you want: a snake, a bitch, an other woman. But I will never be a pathetic, boring housewife.
Ano ang gagawin ninyo if the only man you love is unfortunately married? I am not gonna give up Ram without putting a goddamn fight! (sabay tapon ng wine glass. Loved this scene.)
When you see a big empty space, that’s when you realize you’re alone.
Your wife? (with highest level of mockery, sabay twitch ng lips.)
Cristine Reyes: (as Derek’s perfect and subservient wife who later on fights back)
Bikini mo ba iyan o balat mo? (referring to Anne’s snake-skin swimwear)
Baka makita mo pang nilalagyan ko ng lason ang pagkain mo. Joke lang. Medyo off yung humor ko lately. (Scary.)
Mababaliw siguro ako kapag nalaman kong may babae siya. Baka mapatay ko iyong kabit. Silang dalawa, actually. (Scarier.)
Alam mo kasi ang marriage parang exclusive village. Kailangan mong bantayan para hindi makapasok ang mga squatters. (Tapang!)
Why don’t you have dinner with us tonight? Pa-thank you ko na rin dahil kinuha mo ang asawa ko… bilang supplier ng furtinure sa resort niyo. (Ahh, may karugtong pala)
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Pero sa ganda mong iyan, siguradong marami kang alam na shortcuts. (Pak!)
Ano bang mas madaling kalaban, yung p*tang mahirap o yung p*tang mayaman? (Hmm, ano nga ba?)
Hindi ako to! Pero ginagawa ko to para sayo! (Ouch. )
Carmi Martin: (Cristine’s mom who hailed from the province. Her husband had a mistress too)
Kung ahas siya mas ahas ako! Tahimik pero kapag kinanti – nanunuklaw!
Naku. Ganyan talaga kapag galing sa makating dikya, nagmamarka. (Referring to a kiss mark on Derek’s neck)
Ang mundo ay isang malaking Quiapo. Maraming snatcher. Maagawan ka. Lumaban ka!
Ang asawa, pag may suki nang kabit dun kana lalaban!
Panahon na para i-pack-up ‘yang si Lucy Torres mo. Ilabas mo na diyan si Gretchen Barretto. Sabi nga niya sa Magkaribal, ‘You want war? I’ll give you war.’ Anak, ako na ang bahala sa red stilettos mo!
Pare-parehong p*ta lang iyon! Yung p*tang mayaman, original ang Hermes. Yung mahirap, binili sa Greenhills. (This got the best laugh from the audience.
