Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, “Never Not Love You” tells the story of young and reckless love. It was featured in 2018’s International Film Festival of India and received positive reviews from the foreign audience.
Published on Rappler, movie critic Oggs Cruz described it as “not just a love story” but “an involving snapshot of dreams and ambitions and how they collide with the economic realities and romantic fantasies.”
Meanwhile, Philbert Dy, who is known for his honest and fearless reviews, said that it “smartly examines romance in pragmatic terms.”
Also, my reviews for Never Not Love You, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes, and Mr. and Mrs. Cruz aren't online anymore. But Those are studio films that gave me strength.

Blogger John Tawasil stated that the movie “represents the latest evolutionary step in the progression of romantic cinema, a mature and subdued love story where economic and class differences intersect with other millennial concerns.”
We can’t wait to see another quality JaDine film in the future! Meanwhile, the teaser for Nadine’s “Ulan” with “Sid & Aya: Not A Love Story” director Irene Villamor just came out and it already intrigued a number of viewers!
