The opening line of Armi Millare’s new song “Kapit” goes, “Sa gabing kay dilim, hinahanap ko ang kahulugan ng mga panahong lumipas na, nang walang pasintabi, ako ay iniwan.” What tears?! I just have dirt in my eye.
The track is specially made for Antoinette Jadaone’s highly anticipated movie “Alone/Together”, which comes out in cinemas today. The film is about two ex-college sweethearts meeting again after eight long years, played by Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil. Based on the trailer, it’s probably going to be about heartbreak, regrets, and lost love. That, and a lot of nostalgic memories for UP and UST students and alums.
If you’re on your way to see it, then this is the perfect song for you to stare out wistfully at the streets. Let’s try to hold in our sobs so as not to alarm other passengers.
Still from “Alone/Together” trailer.
