Cinema Evaluation Board's Review
"…a refreshing and welcome departure from both the cotton candy romcoms churned out by mainstream cinema regularly as well as from the depressing poverty porn sometimes offered by the indies." (GRADE A)
"…like reading Murakami on a lazy Sunday afternoon, lightheaded and lighthearted; and without actually noticing it, you cry as you close the book, you cry as you look faraway, and you cry because you see your doppelganger happier than you, luckier than you."
Twitch (Oggs Cruz)
"The film proves that Tarog has both the taste and sensibilities to restore creativity and craftsmanship in the mainstream."
Pelikula Tumblr (Jansen Musico)
"…fresh, yet familiar enough for everyone to feel like they’re walking down the halls of their own alma maters, whether you’re still in or out of it."
Manila Bulletin (Julien Merced Matabuena)
"…succeeded in translating to the big screen what typical senior year students face during the final months of high school."
