A Secret Affair. (Movie Review) Posted at 11:04 pm 4 comments (+)
A Secret Affair is a 2012 romance drama film directed by Nuel Naval, and it stars Anne Curtis (Rafi - the girlfriend / fiancee),  Derek Ramsay (Anton - the boyfriend / fiance)  and Andi Eigenmann. (Sam - the friend / the third party) It's a love triangle story. 

Movies with third party relationships, betrayal, infidelity, cheating and unfaithfulness are too mainstream in the Philippine movies nowadays. From “No Other Woman”, to “The Mistress” and here’s “A Secret Affair”. A Secret Affair tackles the same theme about lies, temptations and rules in a relationship.

The movie is all about a couple who are madly and deeply in love with each other. After two and a half months of dating together, Anton proposed to Rafi. During the preparations for their upcoming wedding, Rafi, the fiancee, was pressured with all the comments she has been hearing from everybody and all the happenings in her life. Her confusion and fears led her to leaving Anton and becoming a run-away bride. On the night before their wedding, she went to her fiance's condominium unit, returned the engagement ring and left without giving explanations to Anton.

Rafi traveled abroad and there, she found herself. Meanwhile, Anton got his heart broken and Sam, Rafi's sorrority sister, was ready to help him heal. She was there when he was hurting. Then, they became fucking buddies - casually hooking up. For Anton, Sam is just another woman. He still loves Rafi despite what the latter has done to her. So, as expected, when Rafi came back home and explained the reasons for her disappearance, she and Anton got back together. This broke Sam's heart which motivated her to ruin the relationship of her love and her close friend. 

The story revolves around a man who loves someone so much, a woman who has been betrayed by the love of her life and another woman who fell in love at the wrong time and at a wrong person. It is truly heart breaking to see each of them suffer the consequences of what they have done. A relationship was destroyed because of a selfish woman and a friendship was destroyed because of a man who has committed a mistake.

In this movie, you will learn the value of trust in a relationship. Betrayal is like a poison. Once the other party has committed it, it is impossible for the relationship to be at its best. Despite all the efforts and considerations made, there will still be more misunderstandings, doubts and problems. There are some who can survive the infidelity and unfaithfulness. They are the ones who are strong enough to ignore the pain and disregard the doubts in their minds and hearts. When trust is broken, the relationship will never be the same again. Well, the decision depends on how the lovers believe in their love for each other. 

Below are some of the quotable quotes from the movie "A Secret Affair."
