We don’t often see our dads grow emotional and give speeches that tug our hearts, but when they do, the words they say stay with us a long time.
The same is true for dads in Star Cinema movies - they don’t have enough emotional moments, but when the spotlight is given to them, we really stop and listen.
Here are four of the most touching dad moments in recent Star Cinema films:
Dante Rivero in “A Very Special Love”
“I’m proud of you. Hindi ko man nasasabi sa’yo, I am... You are my son... There’s so much pain in your heart, and I’m sorry for causing that pain. Pero maniwala ka anak, mahal kita... If only I could go back and undo things... I’d still want you as my son, just as you are. Marami na akong pagkukulang sa’yo, and if I can’t change the past, hayaan mo akong magsimula ulit. Patawarin mo ako, anak. Mahal na mahal kita.”
Ronaldo Valdez in “The Mistress”
“Sa buhay ko, dalawang beses ako na-in love... I loved you the moment you were born, since the first time you looked at me with those big, big eyes tapos nginitian mo ako. That moment, I knew you’re mine. Kaya binigay ko sa’yo pangalan ko eh. I love you, please forgive me.”
Vincent de Jesus in “The Trial”
“Alam kong mahirap sayong intindihin ang nangyari, at alam ko kung gaano kasakit, eh ang buhay talaga, ganyan eh. Lahat ng taong nagmamahal, nasasaktan... Ganyan din ako dati. Noon nung nagdadalaga ako, may isang lalaking dumurog ng puso ko. Sa sobrang sakit, ayaw ko nang maging bakla... Pero darating ang araw na makakahanap ka rin ng isang taong magmamahal sa’yo nang buong-buo, baka higitan pa ang pagmamahal na kaya mong ibigay sa kanya.”
Lito Pimentel in “Can’t Help Falling in Love”
“Alam mo... ang buhay namin ng Nanay mo, buhay namin ‘yun. Ang pagkakamali namin, pagkakamali namin. May sarili kang problema, may sarili kang pagkakamali kasi may sarili kang buhay. Stop living your mother’s dreams for her... Hindi ko lang tingin na mapapatawad ka niya... nakikita ko.”
