One of Olivia Lamasan's best work. A confused and distraught husband comes to Milan to look for his wife. A sassy and savvy woman took him in with the intention of helping but also to take advantage of him. Instead they fall in love. Lamasan's understanding of human emotions and her technique in drawing out raw emotions from the actors made this film a landmark in Philippine cinema.

lenidecastro  am just really wondering what happened to Claudine Barreto. She used to be one of the leading names when it comes to drama  (like her stellar portrayal in "Anak" ). She was magnetic here in "Milan" , I really hope she be given a great project again that will showcase her talent.

sharonmae I think this is her best film... and Piolo's too. Remember the scene when he was twirling around a spot and making a wish? I think that's his break through performance here. and his signature constipated expression, hehehehe

  • Debonair Piolo Pascual is a gem here and yes, Yza Calzado even though her role was just a fleeting one, her onscreen presence is powerful.
