"That Thing Called Tadhana" is a 2015 Filipino romantic comedy film starring Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman. This official entry to the 2015 Cinema One Originals is for me a similar version of the American movie "Before Sunrise". With both main characters starting a conversion about life and eventually about love.
Synopsis: “That Thing Called Tadhana,” a romance-comedy in the tradition of "Before Sunrise" is what Antoinette Jadaone has created. The films asks the questions “Where do broken hearts go?” and tells the story of a woman, struggling to meet airline baggage requirements, who meets a man who comes to her aid. Both in despair out of love, they form a charming friendship that will take them to Sagada in their attempts to mend each other’s hearts.
