Since we are still in the Love Month, we decided to ask the opinion of some movie experts and enthusiasts on the topic,,,”Their Most Romantic Pinoy Movies of All Time.”  In addition to our choices, we also got the answers of our reliable respondents – Noy Lauzon (of UP Film Institute and member of the Young Critics Circle), and entertainment journalists Arnel Ramos and Joseph Gonzales. After we gathered all the answers, here’s our final list…

  1. Kung Mangarap Ka’t Magising (Hilda Koronel and Christopher de Leon; Mike De Leon, director; produced by LVN Studios, 1977).
  2. Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit (Dawn Zulueta and Richard Gomez; Carlos Sifuion-Reyna, director; Armida Siguion-Reyna, Producer, 1991).
