Lessons Toni Gonzaga picked up from ‘Siargao’

Actress and TV host Toni Gonzaga talked about the lessons she picked up after seeing the new paradise flick "Siargao". Gonzaga posted anInstagram photoon Monday which featured her husband, the movie's director Paul Soriano, reading a script against a backdrop of a glistening blue sea.

Eventually, she felt like she was no longer in the cinema, as if she was transported to the island itself, following intently the story of the characters. "It's simple, direct, raw and real," Gonzaga said. "No big gestures, just pure and heartfelt scenes that speak s...Keep on reading: Lessons Toni Gonzaga picked up from ‘Siargao’.....»»

Surf’s up for Jasmine

Jasmine Curtis-Smith had often heard of Siargao and its splendors from sister Anne Curtis, brother-in-law Erwan Heussaff and boyfriend Jeff Ortega. But when she finally arrived on the island in Mindanao last summer for the shoot of Paul Soriano's "Siargao," she still got awed by its fabled beauty. "Jeff had been going to Siargao even before there were direct flights to it," she related. "He'd constantly tell me how beautiful it was. How kind and accommodating the people were." She plays an islander in the romantic drama, an entry in this year's Metro Manila Film Festival. "The script didn't explain that my character was the daughter of a foreigner, but I noticed that there were...Keep on reading: Surf’s up for Jasmine.....»»

Direk Paul: Focus on the film, not the Erich rumor

It will be director Paul Soriano's first time to join the Metro Manila Film Festival, with his latest movie, "Siargao." Quite understandably, he's a tad thrilled about participating in the annual parade of stars. Three weeks before the big event, he was thinking of possible concepts for the film's float. "Perhaps we can build a giant surfboard, complete with waves," he mused. The film fest neophyte is no first-timer when it comes to controversies, though. During the event's launch last month, he was besieged by reporters inquiring about rumors of romance with lead star Erich Gonzales. "It's unfortunate," he told the Inquirer. "There's no truth to that. It's just one of those...Keep on reading: Direk Paul: Focus on the film, not the Erich rumor.....»»
