Movie Review: Barcelona: A Love Untold

Image courtesy of www.mb.com

Main Cast: Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo
Director: Olivia M. Lamasan
MTRCB Rating: PG
Released By: Star Cinema

Shooting a film out of the country is getting to be the in thing for local filmmakers these days.  Aldub’s  Imagine You and Me was shot in Italy, Jadine’s This Time in Japan, and now, Kathniel has Barcelona, Spain in its latest starrer.

Barcelona: A Love Untold, is the comeback movie of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo to the big screen and their first under director Olivia Lamasan.

The movie  attempts to  ’recreate ’ Daniel and Kathryn in a love story  sans the usual sweet and innocent roles,  supposedly to show how much the 5-year old love team has evolved through the years.

In the movie, Ely (Daniel) is a student in Barcelona pursuing further studies in Architecture while engaged in three (3) jobs as a tour guide, waiter and photographer to support himself and provide for his family back home. He lives with his aunt (Aiko Melendez) and her son Tonying (Joshua Garcia ) while estranged with his wealthy biological mother (Isabel Lopez) who also lives in Barcelona.

Ely meets the troubled Mia who goes to Spain to escape some personal issues in the Philippines that had antagonized her relationship with her strict father (Ricky Davao). Unfortunately, she would be faced with more trouble in Barcelona. Coming from a privileged background, Mia is at a loss and can’t cope as an OFW doing menial jobs and hard labor. About to surrender to her fate, Ely helps and guides her in a big way.

There are so many issues to untangle in this movie. Apart from Ely’s falling out with his mother, for example, he struggles to get over a relationship gone bad with a girl named Celine, who interestingly or oddly, looks a lot like Mia. This plot makes a turning point as it inches and weaves its way into the story.

The movie suffers from an overload of drama, too much unnecessary tears that it creates some kind of a ’disconnect ’.  There are so many issues going on in the characters’ lives that are confusing to the viewer, showing one dramatic scene after another without really justifying how they came about. It seems that they are interwoven with each other, sorely lacking in nuances - like a piece of this and that, here and there, without real substantial justification.

There is a heavy confrontation scene in the movie between Aiko and her son that was a bit off. After all the shouting and verbal assaults thrown at each other, mother and son suddenly kiss and make up immediately after Ely’s very quick lecture. How awkward can that get?     

The film ’though is truthful in its portrayal of Ely and Mia as OFW’s or overseas Filipino workers. Their hard toil in a foreign land, living with and embracing an unfamiliar culture, while coping with personal issues, legal constraints, financial problems and the challenge of dealing with (sometimes insensitive) family back home.   

Ely and Mia’s romance gives the film the much-needed breather… and excitement for the fans, too. Barcelona is a perfect place for the couple amid the changing lights and colors at Magic Fountain of Montjuc and their walks along the streets surrounding the world famous temple, Sagrada Familia.

But despite some flaws, director Lamasan succeeds in bringing out the improved actor in Daniel Padilla. Compared to Kathryn, Daniel delivered more in this film. His eyes and movements say it, revealing maturity and experience. Kathryn’s acting on the other hand struggles but lacks depth, it has yet to reach that "leading lady" level. But who knows, it might not be for long. Perhaps, a stronger commitment to her craft will nail the difference. Ditto if Kathryn knows how to make use of her naturally beautiful face - then that will be a big plus.

The movie’s highlight is saved for last for the fans to smile and savor for all its worth.

Barcelona: A Love Untold also stars Ana Abad-Santos, Ana Capri, Cris Villanueva, Joey Marquez, Liza Diño, Melizza Jimenez, Patrick Sugui, now showing in cinemas.

    1. True. Ang mga sumugod nung first day yun na yung "bulk" ng mga naghintay sa "matured" movie na ito. I personally think it's about time ipartner sila sa iba kasi Daniel talaga has still a lot to show as a leading man outside of a loveteam

      1:20, sa results ng mga projects, ung mababang level para sa KN, hindi pa rin narreach un ng JD. Real talk lang. So feeling ko nga, hindi talaga kayo ang close rivalry eh. Malayo pa ang JD para mareach ung peak ng kasikatan ng KN noon.

  4. I have yet to watch before giving my comments on acting and story.I've read two other reviews from independent movie review experts and on the scale of 5, both gave only 2 or just fair for verbal description, not even within good level.

  7. it's true namn talaga, the movie has it's flaws, like the lack of backstory for kathryn, or maybe not well executed. i also find the subway scene of kath to be over the top, i mean would you ever consider suicide given her circumstances, his dad was disappointed with her, yes but she was not disowned and did not really suffer in barcelona. daniel acting though was on point, so so far from his cringe-worthy acting in Princess and I. acting is really in his blood.

    anyway, overall, it's a nice film, worth ur cent. for the kissing scenes alone, i might watch it again. lol

  8. Kathryn is a so-so actress, iyakin lang kasi kaya nadadala nya yon mga crying scene pero kung depth walang wala sya kay Julia M. Marami talagang pumuri kay DJ sa movie na ito, para sa akin sya lang talaga nageffort ilevel up yon craft nya. Mukhang nagfail si inang ihone si Kathryn, di siguro nya masigawan kasi nakabantay si mader. Thanks FP for your honest review.

    1. I think that's one of the problem, that Kathryn got somebody closely watching her. She might be inhibited to "let go", perhaps she'll do better with lesser people while the camera is rolling? Or that the presence of the parent will deter the director to squeeze more juice, such that they have to make do with passable but no depth acting. Kathryn is either too conscious or she is too complacent now to act well.

      Delete
    2. Nadine at kathryn masyadong sinisiguradong maganda sila sa camera bago yung acting kaya di majapagdeliver. Once your acting , you have to lose yourself kaya nga maraming hollywood actors ang nagsosolo pa para maging in character tulad ni Robert de niro.

      Delete

    6. I beg to disagree mga baks! Both Kathryn ang DJ are good in this movie. I really love how they delivered their lines. They improved a lot. Kudos to DJ, Kath, Inang and to all the people behind Barcelona, it's worth the wait. It's very entertaining and the kissing scene, OMG, soooooo KILIG! Pandemonium inside the movie house. Kathniel fever is still very much alive! Long live King Daniel and Queen Kathryn. Congrats on your movie which is currently breaking all box office records. Go watch it guys! You will surely enjoy it!!!

  9. I agree with your review, FP. I watched the movie yesterday and there's so many conflicts in the movie that the sequence and how they resolve them are just off. It felt too problematic and unrelatable.

    But I have to commend Daniel. I have to say, he was a revelation. His acting has improved immensely. Kathryn on the other hand, didn't deliver as much as I hoped she would. It felt awkward watching her, and her expressions are blank, even when she's crying. Sad because she was a good actress when she was younger.

    I don't know if it's Kathryn's acting but I didn't feel the chemistry between them. For me (and this is solely my opinion I hope I don't get bashed for this), Daniel is better off without a loveteam. Be paired with different leading ladies. He has a potential to be one of the finest leading men in the country, and shouldn't be boxed in a loveteam.

  11. Hindi sya enjoyable. The movie had potential pero sobrang dami ng dramatic scenes na pagod ka na emotionally and you don't want to cheer on the characters anymore and wish for their happy ever after. The movie is exhausting. By that last scene na pinagmamalaki ng fans na "the best" daw, I just felt numb and disinterested. Parang cop out lang yung kissing scene eh, parang "o eto reward nyo for sticking until the end of the movie", it felt kinda cheap and forced. Hindi sya exciting to think it's their first kissing scene onscreen. Daniel improved but Kathryn may be a lost cause. She was stiff and I'm not just talking about her dancing skills. The movie is not worth it.

While Daniel can easily be paired to any actresses their age, Kath doesn't have that kind of versatility and ease to just simply slip in a role. SC has to take care of her, thus, loveteam pa rin sila for sure til late 20's.

  23. It's great that people see the improvement on DJ Padilla's skills. He deserves all the praise. Ms. Lamasan brought out the best in this young man. Kathryn, however, disappoints. Di ko gets dati kung bakit pabebe acting ang bansag nila sa style ni Kathryn ... hanggang sa napanood ko siya dito sa Barcelona. Parang pigil. Parang ayaw lumukot ng mukha.

    Anyway, I expect this love team to experience what Kim and Gerald went through years back, where Gerald chose the dramatic actor path and Kim remained patweetums.

Hindi lang KN ang affected nito, halos lahat ng LT. It means, humuhina na ang LT packaging. Dapat mag isip na ang mga producers ng ibang ways para mailabas ang talent ng kanilang mga stars, kesa pagka kitaan lang ang mga pobreng manonood dahil lang sa kilig factor.

      Delete
    4. You know why he improved? Kasi nakagawa na ng apala sya ibang movies where he has other partner. Nakasama sya dun sa Family ovie ng mga Padilla.Bonifacio, Sa ngalan ng Ama, Kuratong Baleleng. I think he will survive without a LT.

  31. Naku this film is Devoid of "feels" Parang pinilit lang to make them fit the roles and be mature. KN is missing the charisma and appeal that they had long way. Di ko makita yung sex appeal or sexual tension beyween the two. Daniel's acting tho is improving

    1. Yes they produce undeniable kilig pero hindi mo tlga mararamdaman yung desire or sexual tension pag sila.

    4. I noticed that too with her acting. She wasn't a great kid actress, but she was better before than she is now. She lacks depth in her acting now. I don't know why she's holding herself back. I feel bad for Daniel because he's improving, but when your partner isn't...you're basically getting dragged down.

Palibhasa masyado ng hard sell. Matatalino na mga viewing public ngayon. Hindi biro mag aksaya ng pera sa isang walang kuwentang movie.

  50. Based on this review, it is high time to mix and match ABS, try pairing Dj to another leading lady material! Accept it or not, with Kathryn, you need to wait maybe 5 more years to get that leading lady status. Dj can deliver even more without KB as jis additional baggage! Pls give Dj a break!

  51. Puro kayo give DJ a break. Nung pinalabas ang Bonifacio asan kayo? Nagsolo na si DJ, sinuportahan nyo ba? Kalokohan! Free James Reid as well. Mag antay na lang kayo sa FB ng mga pirata. Jan kayo magaling.

  54. Daniel is ready to break away from KN but I highly doubt that SC / Abs will do that now. Both stars should be able to independently step out of it (LT) and easily take on a more mature role, DJ is ready, KB is not. I Mahaba-haba pa ang pagsasamahan nila as a loveteam.

  58. Kathryn was a good actress when she was younger. Intense ang portrayal nya of a young Victoria (Gretchen's character) in Magkaribal. Magaling din sya sa Endless Love as young Jenny (Marian's character). Kaso, habang tumatagal eh paurong acting nya. :(

    I feel sad for Kath, akala ko pa naman susunod sya sa yapak ni Juday.

  59. sa crazy beautiful you, kitang kita na ang potential ni daniel specially dun sa scene na pagod na pagod na siya pero pinag timpla pa nia ng coffee mom nia. hindi sia sumisigaw pero damang dama yung pain niya. hindi siya pabebe. barcelona, lalo siyang nag mature. Sana kung mag solo siya, suportahan siya ng mga tao. Usually kasi sa love teams, pag pinaghiwalay laging sa babae ang simpatya at suporta.
