POTATO ON THE GO BULLETIN (Movie):
Star Cinema’s first Filipino-Thai film topbilled by Thai actor Mario Maurer and Filipina talent Erich Gonzales is all set to spread romance among Pinoy moviegoers with its approaching release in cinemas nationwide on October 31 (Wednesday).
Led by multi-awarded movie and TV director Rory B. Quintos, the film shares a modern-day fairytale between popular Thai actor Marcus (Mario) and a simple Filipina baker Joey (Erich) who are both in pursuit of their respective happiness.
“The movie is really about unconditional love,” explained Direk Rory. “It’s about learning how to let go and set free of the person you love so that he or she could fulfill his or her greatest potential. So when he or she comes back to you, you will really be loved.”
The instant chemistry between Mario and Erich was personally witnessed by Direk Rory. “On the first day of shooting, first sequence, first shot, right away kitang-kita ‘yung chemistry,” she said. “Actually, when I had a story conference for both of them, I already saw that there was good chemistry. Bagay na bagay sila! They looked so good together.”
Likewise, the award-winning director adores the film’s leading lady. “I’ve worked with her for almost a year in the TV series ‘Maria la del Barrio’ and we got along very well,” she explained. “Erich is very young and a very good actress. Marami pa siyang magagawa in the future, I have no doubt that in the future she will bring awards at ang layo-layo pa ng mararating niya sa buhay.”
