Filipino actor and model Zanjoe Marudo (age 36) sums up the romance drama “First Love” movie as “ang sakit, sobrang bigat” [painful, very heavy].
“First Love” stars veteran actor Aga Muhlach (age 49) and actress Bea Alonzo (age 31) and is directed by Paul Soriano.

Asked what he thinks about “First Love”, Zanjoe says the movie is very painful and very heavy. But he says Aga Muhlach and Bea Alonzo acted it out in a way that turned it “positive”.
Zanjoe explained further:
Kung baga ang bigat bigat ng problema nila pero ganun pa din sila mag isip, ganun pa din nila dalhin yung problema, yung buhay nila. Parang sino ba naman tayo para magreklamo pa… Ang ganda, ang ganda ng pelikula, cross my heart and hope to live.
[Their problems are so heavy but that is still how they think, how they carry their problems, their lives. So, who are we to complain now. The movie is so good, cross my heart and hope to live.]
