Love with No Boundaries: 7 films that portrayed love in different forms

Some love stories can be a bit complicated, and that’s precisely what makes it beautiful. There is no roadblock big enough for two people who are willing to fight for each other.

Here, we listed down some of the films that portrayed love that defied all the norms. Warning lang, some of these will inspire you to fall in love now na, now na talaga:

1. "Baka Bukas"

Not many films distributed in the mainstream space have portrayed lesbian love, which is why “Baka Bukas” made a mark.

2. "The Mistress"

In most kabit movies, the mistress is always seen as the antagonist, because, well, they're a mistress. But in this film, Sari (Bea) showed that “the other woman” can be complex, gentle, and understanding -- willing to stay in the shadows because of love and responsibility.

3. "She's The One"

Sometimes, sexuality and age aren't the only hindrance in relationships - sometimes it's two people who refuse to address their true feelings for each other because of their valued friendship. This is the case for Cat (Bea Alonzo) and Wacky (Dingdong Dantes) who made falling in love with your best friend a nightmare and a dream, simultaneously.

4. "This Guy's In Love With You Mare"

This may be a comedy film but it taught us that love is possible between two people in spite of their sexuality. And in their case, Gemma (Toni Gonzaga) fell for Lester (Vice Ganda) because of who he is, even before she found out he is gay.

5. "Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes"

Yes, we don't tolerate cheating in any form here, but we just want to point out that this film showed that love is love is love. It was hard for Felix (JC De Vera) and Gary (Joross Gamboa) to come out of their closets (especially since they were devoted husbands to their wives), but they defied it all because of the love they had for each other. It’s just so heartwarmingly beautiful.

6. "The Third Party"

In a society where the LGBTQIA+ members still fight for their rights, it was actually nice to see that there are people who can and will accept you for who you are. And that's exactly what Andi (Angel Locsin) did for her ex Max (Sam Milby), who fell in love with a man after they broke up.

7. "Unexpectedly Yours"

"Unexpectedly Yours" is a cutesy portrayal of the two kinds of love from two generations: Patty (Sharon Cuneta) and Cocoy's (Robin Padilla), who are already in their 50s and fell with each other; and Yanni (Julia Barretto) and Jason (Joshua Garcia), two young adults whose love story is just starting out.
