Director Olivia "Inang" Lamasan is without a doubt, a great storyteller of love. All the tagos-to-the-bones films she directed in the past decades often left us thinking about our own choices in the love department, and in all of our relationships even.
Inang allowed us to experience and discover the five love languages through her finest films. Let's dissect:
Words of Affirmation: "Sana Maulit Muli"
Long distance relationship requires more words of affirmation. It is a lifeline, an essential need to assure both persons that no space can break them apart.
Quality Time: "Milan"
No busy skeds, no lame excuses, only undivided attention from him to her, and vice versa.
Physical Touch: "In The Name of Love"
When words fail, physical touch speaks. The power of hugs, massages, and sweet caresses create connections, trust, and respect, that are undoubtedly the foundation of love.
Acts of Service: "Starting Over Again"
Sometimes a decent meal made with love after a long day can make her heart dance a little more, jump a little more, and fall a little harder.
Receiving Gifts: "Barcelona: A Love Untold"
A cuddly toy to hug, or a nice comfy sneakers to wear, or a good book to read, it doesn't matter. What is necessary is the meaning and the thoughtfulness that comes along with it.
Ikaw, ka-Fam, what's your love language? Tell us in the comments!
