To those who don’t know, KC Concepcion is one of the famous young actresses here in the Philippines. She is one of the ace stars of ABS-CBN network, the owner of The Filipino Channel (TFC). KC Concepcion starred in many romance movies and is also well sought product endorser.
During Father’s Day, me and my beloved decided to watch the movie “I’ll be There,” which is starred by KC Concepcion, Gabby Concepcion (her real father), and Jericho Rosales. At first, I am hesitant to watch this movie because it’s a drama movie. But still, I gave it a go.
I have nothing against the movie. Actually, I liked it. This movie of KC Concepcion is different from all the Filipino drama movies I saw. There is less heavy drama and less histrionics. The movie just focused on the central theme, which is the relationship between a father and daughter. The love story between KC Concepcion and Jericho was not glossed over but used to enhance the major story.
In the movie, KC Concepcion returned home from abroad to claim her share of the inheritance. The tension is high because Gabby abandoned his family abroad and KC Concepcion did not saw him for fifteen years. The story circulated on fixing the relationship between the two. The drama between KC Concepcion and Gabby Concepcion is also somewhat real because in real life Gabby left KC Concepcion.
I could say that the movie is good. KC Concepcion’s acting is OK. Jericho’s character is nice. However, my major problem is the comedienne Cacai Bautista. Her character was placed as comic relief in the movie. However, her character is over-acting and makes the scenes unrealistic and corny. The director should have toned down her performance and planned better scenes to lighten up the movie’s mood. Another problem is Gabby’s acting because he can’t show his emotions well because of botox. He sacrificed his facial expression to make himself look young.
Those are just my little disagreements. However, all in all, this movie of KC Concepcion is good.
