Suddenly Its Magic is a feel-good romantic comedy movie for the for the teens, the young at heart, and for some adults who are patiently waiting for their Prince Charming.
It tells us the story of a Thai Superstar (Mario : Marcus) who portrays a lovable character in films but he himself loses faith on the magic of love when his co-star girlfriend (Baifern : Sririta) dumped him for another guy. As he wants himself yo get lost and be freed, he goes to the Philippines wherein he meets a brokenhearted baker lady, (Erich : Joey) who pretends to create magic through her cupcakes.
Besides Mario Maurer's super pakilig scenes and especially with kilig moments nila with Erich, I think I learned something, though its common.. but the film still reminds us on the magic of love and to dream about our happy endings.
And, it's about two things: to choose between the love of your life and the life that you love. One side chose love, the other went with ambition; both choices sacrificed the other and both turned up hurting people in the process. Love doesn't exist without hurt; happiness without sadness and sacrifice - they all come in a package, it's just the matter of how we learn from them and how we get stronger through them. In the end, they were both happy with their dream - dream of success and dream of being together.
"I’m getting all of my dreams because you set me free. And all of my dreams would mean more if you’re with me. And I still love you. I would like to think and to believe that this time we’re stronger, we’re more grown-up, we know better, and because we know what’s like to be apart from each other. And no matter how tough things get, we’re not gonna let each other go again… Will you be with me?"
- Marcus, Suddenly It’s Magic
Both Marcus and Joey represent two different worlds with different traditions. Shot in wonderful place of Ilocos and solemn Thailand, the film tried to unite the two characters through love. The magic might work for some viewers but may fall short for others. It all depends on who were you before you enter the cinema. Pag bitter or di naniniwala sa love - never mind nalang! ok?
