Meet Me In St. Gallen
Celeste (Bela Padilla) assumes the name "Katy Perry" whenever she hangs out at coffee shops. She then meets Jesse (Carlo Aquino) and the two realize that their names are similar to those of the American romantic-comedy-drama film Celeste and Jesse Forever. Consequently, their time spent together ends up on a one-night stand and, although they go their separate ways afterward, they would reunite a couple of years later where they agreed to see each other, St. Gallen.
The story of Jesse and Celeste who meets at an unexpected time in their lives. They then realize their names are the same as the characters in the popular break-up romantic comedy, Celeste and Jesse Forever.
1. would've loved this movie if only:- they didn't romanticize cheating - bella padilla's character didn't agree to be a side chick - moira dela torre didn't fucking sing a whole song - the character written for carlo aquino didn't let me down as his other characters have done before2. this half-star is for the beginning of the movie. unfortuntely, that good first impression did not last3. the "st. gallen" element of the story was too forced. it's like they fit it in the story just for the sake of saying they exerted effort in cinematography
A nice little pinoy indie movie with three different meetings between a girl and a boy. Two ways to look at this. Either as a unfinished love story or as true love that wasn't meant to be. Perhaps a little of both. Bela Padilla takes these roles so natural.
The modern take on the romantic comedy stars Aquino as Jesse and Padilla as Celeste. The two meet not once or twice, but thrice in different places and occasions. The last one in the beautiful Christmas town of St. Gallen in Switzerland. Only destiny knows if they will remain strangers or if they will finally decide to begin a real relationship.
Jesse and Celesta meet after she gives a fake name, Katy Perry to the coffee shop's barista. They then realize that their names are the same as those from the break-up-rom-com, Celesta and Jesse Forever. They bond over conversations about relationships and end up having a one-night stand. They eventually part ways before meeting up again a few years later at the same coffee shop.
