Reader's Review: A Second Chance


A Second Chance (Star Cinema, 2015) : Starring Bea Alonzo, John Lloyd Cruz, Dimples Romana
Directed by: Cathy Garcia-Molina; Written by Carmi Raymundo and Vanessa Valdez

Lovelier The Second Time Around but Falling Short of Greatness
by. Atty. Ferdinand Topacio

Had Aguinaldo crossed his troops over to Manila after the Spanish Armada's defeat in the hands of Dewey, but before the Americans landed ground troops in Intramuros, our country's history would have been radically different.

How is that historical "what if" relevant to the One More Chance redux called A Second Chance, you ask. Well, just like Aguinaldo, director Cathy Garcia-Molina had the opportunity to transcend the boundary between "good" and "great" but refused to cross the line; and in film-making, as in love and war, he who hesitates is lost.

Do not get me wrong: A Second Chance is a cut above the rest, intelligent yet entertaining, and everything is above par: direction, editing and writing. The acting part is a given, with two of today's best in the field -- John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo -- playing the leads. In fact, as a sequel to "One More Chance," it is in all respects a better film: aside from the benefit of a full back story for the protagonists, JLC and Bea have also themselves matured as thespians, and were able to fully utilize the now-complex dimensionality of the characters they portray.

Which is just as well, because it being more of a character study, the story is not at all intricate: it starts where the first movie left off, but in medias res (just like the first). Popoy and Basha have married and -- in a series of flashbacks-- we are shown the ceremonies, a typical aspirational bourgeois wedding. The first few years show no portends of the storms to come: after Popoy refuses an overseas job offer to be with his new bride, the newlyweds found an engineering and architectural firm (Gonzalez+Gonzalez) and with husband-and-wife working in tandem, it grows by leaps and bounds. Until tragedy strikes one after the other: a construction site accident (through no fault of Popoy) damages the firm's reputation, Basha suffers a miscarriage and has to stop working, and the firm starts piling up huge losses. Which Popoy keeps from his wife. This however, does not augur well for the union, as Popoy -- driven more and more to drink -- takes out his frustrations on Basha, who is increasingly becoming bored by her imposed domesticity. Eventually, Basha finds out about the horrendous debt and feels betrayed. She contemplates leaving her husband, but her love for him prevails and she returns -- not only to his life but to their firm -- and practically takes over its helm from him. Quiet abruptly, roles are reversed, as Basha starts running the show and Popoy is relegated to second fiddle. This he resents, and after meeting an old flame (well-played by Arci Munoz) who has grown prosperous after taking over the job abroad that Popoy refused, starts thinking whether marrying Basha and staying in the country was "his biggest mistake." Although resisting his ex's sexual advances, Popoy accepts an offer to work in London with her – if only to uplift his self-worth, it would seem -- and tells Basha about his plans to leave. Basha is disconsolate and realizes that that is not, after all, what she wants. Thus, the main conflict arises: will Popoy leave or won’t he? This is quickly resolved – and very quickly at that -- in typical Pinoy fashion with Popoy changing his mind en route to the airport and making a surprise appearance at the wedding rehearsal of one of their mutual friends. It is in that wise that the sequel happily concludes.

The movie departs from the norm with its mostly successful attempts at realism, gamely exploring its theme that the majority of marriages may break apart not because of extraneous causes like a third party, but due to internal strife such as financial difficulties and collision of egos. And indeed, in the middle class diegesic inhabited by the movie’s protagonists, the search for professional and pecuniary success, as well as the “holy grail” that is The Dream House, powers most of their motivations. It is in this unconventional approach to marital strife – a stubborn resistance to succumb to histrionics both in storyline and acting -- where the work shines.

It is also therein that the film stops short of being a great movie. The storyline failed to abandon the clichΓ©s that weigh down most local movies, including the “barkada” subplots, the obligatory comedy relief character and the hurried Third Act resolution. There is also the seeming “mandate” to write the dialogue to provide quotable quotes for the audience, which makes for some very hackneyed, unnatural lines; a married couple quarreling in the heat of anger do not talk like poets. The filmmakers should have taken a leaf from Broken Marriage (Ishmael Bernal, starring Vilma Santos and Christopher de Leon [1983]), where the leads were directed to improvise their lines whilst in the scenes where husband and wife would be fighting. And while we understand that this is a sequel, the writer making allusions to most every major scene in the first work is literary baggage that should have been jettisoned.

On the whole, while a fine sequel and an excellent movie in and of itself, it held back from a full-scale departure from conventional Filipino film-making and failed to break new ground (or even just expand on previous formulae), in the end sacrificinggravitas. It fell short of greatness, squandering the opportunity to be this generation’sBroken Marriage (which, with its companion piece Relasyon by the same director being two of the best local films on marital relations).

The local movie-going public has already demonstrated that it can appreciate love stories with atypical “unhappy” endings: The Mistress and Starting Over Again are two cases in point, blockbusters notwithstanding that the protagonists did not live happily ever after. A Second Chance had the, well, chance to push the boundaries even further. Yet it did not take the road less travelled. Sayang. To paraphrase the words of Marlon Brando’s character in On The Waterfront, it could have been a contender.

  1. Yeah i agree. Pero sapat lang naman din siguro na happy ending ang second chance kasi sequel na to from a very good romantic part 1. Parang mejo sad naman kung gagawing mala-The Mistress or Starting Over Again kahit itong Part 2 matagal hinintay ng tao.

    1. Wala akong naintindihan...ang alam ko lang walang maglalagay ng kung ano ang realistic sa isang movie na ineexpect ng viewer. Ang realistic lang e yung paginom ni Popoy. Kaya nga cinema, cinematic kung close sa real e documentary na itatawag.

    2. ang documentary po ay real. hindi close to real.

    3. Actually, ok nga sana na di muna maghappt ending ang A Second Chance. Like they parted ways... That would make a good baseline for another sequel. So trilogy na toh!

  3. Ok nman sakin ung ending... Kasi nga involve ang marriage may hope pa din na dpt may second chance...unlike mistress and starting over na complicated na if happy ending...tama lng sa movie na di ngkatuluyan ung mga main characters...

  4. Gusto ko ung review. Havey din pala to si atty sa mga malalim na english. Bat di to tumakbong senator? Anyway, i like the review but i have to disagree with your conclusion. D naman yata to heavy drama para gawing relasyon or broken marriage similarity. Continuation pa rin naman to ng formula na ginamit sa unang sequel. So tama lang to. Thanks sa review atty.

    1. yung kumpara ay dahil sa dialogue. yung mga pelikula ni vanessa valdez ay parang mga nagsasalitang hallmark cards whereas relasyon at broken marriage ang hango sa realidad!

  5. oa naman cguro kung d cla ngkabalikan. sa totoong buhay pagnag aaway ang mag asawa at naghihiwalay ng mga ilang araw dun lang nila narerealize na namimiss pa la nila ang isat isa yun un kaya ngkakabalikan. unless pagthird party talaga ang dahilan malabo na talaga magkabalikan.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well for me okay na yun. Kasi marami tarong natututunan. Its a movie para maparealize sa mga mga mag asawa o kahit sino man na nakakarelate sa story na may hope pa at hanggat kaya pangbipaglaban, go lang ng go. Binibigyan nya ng pag asa ang mga mag asawa para ipaglaban ang relasyon nila. Katulad ng situation namin ng husband ko.

  7. From the title "A SECOND Chance" that means to say the story revolves from the enormity of their marriage. It talks about surmounting their trails or betrayals. I dont know how good you want it to be or perhaps, you are not the perfect audience.

  8. I watched the movie, and I highly agree that this is not a typical marriage struggles. I find the movie too cliche to the extent of "quotable quotes" that writers focused more than realism. And yes, when married couple argue they don't become poetic!!' Haha... Relaxation story is simple but a reality :)

    1. Mainstream parin to kaya medyo poetic, siguro kung indie wala masyado hugot lines.

      Delete
    2. Audience expected for hugot lines so there the lines turned poetic nga lang, ipinilit kahit hindi appropriate sa scene to think na nag-aaway na yung couple. Typical filipino drama movie.

    6. Ako din.. Ganun.. Maganda pero kase baka di lang tayo makarelate kase napako na tayo sa one morechance. Malamang yung mga di nakarelate ay wala pang asawa. Ibang iba ung pinagdaanan nila sa second chance pero dikit pa rin sa naging prob nila noon sa one more chance. Pero they still fight for their love.

    7. 8:36 meron na bang perfect na movie? Lahat naman may kakapusan sa ibatbibang aspeto.

  10. They should have left One More Chance at that. It's already a classic. A Second Chance was made to generate revenue for star cinema, while good, it's a waste of JLC and Bea's stellar acting talents.

    1. I agree, ipinilit, nagpapilit, pinilit hence the second chance, hilaw and kulang. They shoulve just leave one more chance as it is.

  11. OA ang review. Kinwento na lahat ang movie. But i agree at some points but not on the ending that you want. For me mas ok na yung ending nila. Based naman sa title na A 2nd Chance, it implies happy ending.

    ReplyDelete
  12. For me the ending is cliche but ok narin kasi cliff hanger na yun first movie tapos kung cliff hanger pa din to parang expected na kasi ganon nga yun una.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My issue is not the "happy ending"; Broken Marriage also had a happy ending, if ambivalent. What I thought was wanting was the cookie cutter resolution na parang cut and paste lang from previous movies. Tipong deus ex machina na hindi bumagay yung pace with the rest of the work.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The dialogue is part of this movie's charm. Poetic man siya eh dahil ganon ang gustong style nun writers/directors. Parang mga movie nung early 80's na mahahaba at theatrical ang dating. Kanya kanyang tatak yan kumbaga. Eh tatak na ng one more chance yun hugot lines so i dont see the point kung tatangalin mo yun just to be realistic.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Doesn't "One More Chance" already mean "A Second Chance" ???

    1. yes redundant nga eh.

    4. one more chance as bf/gf a second chance as married couples..

      Delete
    5. nanood ba talaga kayo? sa first movie, nabreak sila at nawala na yung "First Chance". so nagrevolve ung movie sa kung magkakaron pa sila ng "One More Chance", hence the title. Ngayon sa second movie, they got their one more chance kaya "A Second Chance" na. Sinabi din ni Dimples sa wedding yun na second chance na nila yun.

    7. "Last Mo Na Yan" mas bagay na title

    8. Not really. Pag nga one more chance, parang walang qualifier. Parang humihingi lang ng chance kahit ano pang number sinundan. Parang baligtad title no? Dapat una a second chance then one more chance.

  18. tama nga naman. kung naging mas realistic lang sana na habang nag aaway sila, di sila parang poet habang nagsasalita. anyway, i like the review. :)

  19. tantanan na nila na ipakita yung mga endorsements sa pelikula. Nakakairita lang eh. Kahit sa credits na lang sa dulo ipakita.

  20. Akala ko ako lang nakulangan sa pelikula. Masyadong nag focus sa mid life crisis, ego, what ifs, at frustrations ni popoy bilang ama. Akala kp nga teleserye pinapanuod ko kasi nagiging dragging na. Nag focus sil sa mga dialogue na akala nila magiging successful like the first one( yes im a fan kabisado ko linya dun) pero yun di pilit eto masyadong pilit. #sorry

    2. Teh, sabi nga ni Popoy "that's marriage" Marriage life ang pinaguusapan sa "A Second Chance". Yung trials ng isang typical na mag-asawa naipakita sa movie at kung paano nila malalagpasan yun. Anong gusto magpakaromcom chuchu? Fairytale? Hindi ganun ang marriage, teh. Marriage has its own ups and downs.Tho yung mga ibang linya nga parang pilit pero overall maayos naman ang pagkakalagay sa movie. It's still a HIT, no matter what. :)

  22. Ako naman i find second chance redunfant as a title for this movie. Kasi dba if you will anayze the title of the first sequel "ONE MORE CHANCE" it is understood nah second chance? O kaya naman parang naging baliktad, kasi they could've titled the part 1 as Second Chance, then the part 2 as One More Chance. Dba mas swak yun?? Sana hindi nalang ginawang Second Chance yung title kasi for me parang Mema lang yun. IMHO.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's what I thought, too. Once more chance is second chance. It is actually the third chance na. Masabi lang na sequel sya ng one more chance Kaya nila ginagawang second chance. Di masyadong naanalize ang title.

    2. sus teh laki ng problema mo.... yun second chance yon ang kwento AFTER n nya makuha yun one more chance n hiningi n jlc dati... besides sino b mag-aakala n masusundan p yun 1st movie aftr 8 years dba?

    3. yung One More Chance na nakuha nila sa first movie after magbreak, is the Second Chance na meron sila sa second movie. hirap ba intindihin?

    4. sana di na lang nasundan hehe

      Delete
    5. 12:55, you are right. But 1:15 is pertaining to the title. Not that story. Magkabaliktad nga naman. And if you analyze the title may flaw talaga.

  23. Liked it, didn't LOVE it. Baka may hangover pa ako sa "One More Chance". I agree with the review but can I add?...for me parang nasobrahan ng hugot lines. Hindi ko din ma pinpoint kung bakit feeling ko nasobrahan. Naiimagine ko lang na naunang ginawa yung hugot lines saka na lang nag develop ng story. Sa dami ng hugot lines nila parang lumabas ako ng sinehan na galing ako ng poetry reading. Then again, that's just me.

  26. Gusto ko ang ending. It's a married couple's story, so as such, I expected that they will stick with each other in the end. Hindi naman lahat bitter ang married life, kaya you can't really say na hindi sya realistic. And TBH, may times na humuhugot din ako tuwing nagddrama sa buhay kaya it's not oa for me. Bwahaha

    3. This movie is really for married couples na kaya d makarelate yung magjowa pa lang or single pa.
      As someone who is already married I can say that their struggles are real. and it is not easy to sustain a happy married life pagtratrabahuhan niyo. At ikaw nga ni basha magmamahal ka pa lalo kahit nasasaktan ka. Hehe

      Delete
    4. Maybe you aren't married yet/ or tried live-in, kaya di ka makarelate. Its about in good terms or bad terms of their relationship, how they handle problems. Para sa mga tunay na nagmamahal, may damdamin, nasasaktan at sumasaya. Mapapaluha ka talaga at makakarelate ka if u experienced the same situations sa mga eksena ng a second chance.

    5. I am married, pero hindi naman kasi realistic yung nag aaway na nga kayo, eh magbabatuhan pa kayo ng kung anik na hugot lines. Like duh!!!!

  29. Same formula lang ginamit ni Cathy sa A Second Chance and One More Chance. Hugot lines+barkada bonding + conflict between Popoy and Basha. Kasi dun naman sya sumikat eh, so bakit kelangan baguhin?

    1. ang punto ni Topaicio ay "SAYANG" ang "pagkakataon" na gamitin ang kasikastan ng movie para mag come up ng sequel na "remarkable" at "not conventional" Pinoy movie.

      in short, ang Star Cinema ay mahina ang loob para mag take risk to take a different route in movie making. stick to tested formula lang sila. just like in tv. same old plot, attack, directing, theme. tried and tested pero walang innovation & growth.

  38. I think a second chance is a realistic movie..I realize why there are people who still stay in the relationship despite the hurting and hardships..and those lines were uttered because it is the really the style of the movie since its a sequence of one more chance. Of course they cannot please everyone. But 90 % would that the movie is great.. since this is a free country..people can say what there opinion is.. but I hope d nya kinwento ying buong story dto.

  43. Married couples who work on the same company and management will appreciate the story. Cguro mtaas lng expectation ng iba kasi the first movie focused on the bf-gf kind of relationship. A second chance is a revelation of how married couples need to work on to their relationship everyday. HIndi na ito kasing babaw ng isang gf-bf nlng because you committed yourselves to each other for the rest of your lives. This movie is an eye opener on how strong you need to be to hold on to each other specially during worst times. Kudos to Bea and John Lloyd as they embraced their characters well on this movie. Parang totoong characters cla sa totoong buhay.

  49. Mahusay Talaga Sina Direk Cathy, John Loyd at Bea Alonzo ! A Second Chance hindi ganun kahusay ang story line mismo. Mas okey pa din ang story ng ibang movie ng star cinema. Mas okey pa panoorin ang trailer kesa sa buong movie. Nasabik siguro ang mga tao kaya kumita ng todo sa sinehan. Na curious ang mga tao bakit hitss movie talga. sad to say hindi ganun ka ganda nag movie talaga. :)

  50. hindi maganda ung movie ng a second a chance. away na lang ng away... buhay mag asawa puro probelma na lang mula umpisa at matapos hahaha hindi buo at malinaw ang bawat eksena sa bilis ng 7 years hindi mo na alam ang pinka highlight ng movie hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  51. hindi ko rin nagustuhan ang story. sana yung story is pinakita na lang how they cope up on their "second chances" relationship after they broke-ucp in the first movie hanggang sa happy ending na kinasal sila. more exposure sana sa mga barkada. nakakatuwa sila panoorin mas gusto ko pa yung mga hugot lines nila. giving more light feeling to the story. one more chance fan here.
