Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards’ 2019 film “Hello, Love, Goodbye” was included in the Golden Globe Awards' list of New Asian Cinema!
The film, which was set against the grime and grind of Hong Kong, centered on two young Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), who became each other’s comfort for a fleeting moment.
According to the Golden Globes, the film "explores the humanity and hope in the world of young Filipino workers in Hong Kong, but this time, with romance and laughter".
The prestigious award-giving body said that the drama “offers much more than a clichéd love story”. They also mentioned how Director Cathy Garcia-Molina explored “the dreams and struggles of millennial Filipino workers that have remained invisible to the public” and how she “[orchestrated] her own socio-political commentary on worsened income inequality and the changing Filipino family values.”
The other movies featured in the New Asian Cinema list this 2020 are “The Eight Hundred” from China, “Manta Ray” from Thailand, “A Sun” from Taiwan, and “The Man Standing Next” from South Korea, among others.
“Hello, Love, Goodbye” is currently the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.
