So how did the the story end? Read along ... this is how the guy chose to end it..
One day he just woke up feeling a little stranger than usual. The arrow woke up being tired of his pointy life again. Until he heard a question too familiar that it was not strange at all.
"Excuse me, but have you lost your heart?"
The arrow was surprised. It was the heart who used to be pierced through him. And there was no reply… The arrow and the heart didn’t need any.
A cute and bubbly film that attempts to answer the question "Where do broken hearts go? Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman takes you to places you've never been in you hearts and tells you the tale of "The arrow with a heart pierced through it". A short story written by Macy(Angelica) way back in college as part of a school project. I was intrigued by the way it was written so I did a research online and this is what i found in tumbler.
The arrow with a heart pierced through it
There was an Arrow who was getting tired of his pointy life. Until one day he woke up feeling heavier than usual. He woke up with a heart pierced through him.
"Whose heart are you and how did you get here?"
But there was no reply.
He floated about, asking those along the way, “Have you lost your heart?”
But he couldn’t find the owner of this heart.
He decided to ignore the weight he was carrying by going back to doing what he was doing. He floated away carrying the weight of the heart.
As time passed, he felt the weight decrease. He was either getting used to the weight he was carrying or the heart was carrying itself.
One day the heart just slowly moved back from the arrow. Slowly… very slowly… until the heart is no longer pierced through the arrow. And so the heart moved on. The arrow who used to have a heart pierced through him tried to move on. But he was too heavy and he was dragging himself down. The arrow could not understand why he felt heavier… when he no longer had the load of carrying somebody’s heart. So the arrow tried to go back to his old, pointy life and every day, he would wake up feeling heavier than usual. But there was no heart pierced through hime each time. So the arrow decided to be patient and just try to be the old arrow that he was before he became the arrow with a heart pierced through him. So he can live normally again. And he did.
In Macy's story it ended here but as the movie progressed, you will be hinted that there is some sort of a resolution to this. Along the storyline you will see how natural and engaging the characters are. They are well portrayed and it made the movie more captivating and relatable.
Such a lovely metaphor of two estranged hearts finding their way back to trusting oneself and falling in love again. A simple plot with realistic scenes that makes every viewer hooked till the end.
The cute chemistry between Angelica and JM added flavor to the whole movie. I must say in a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this movie an 8. This is by far the best filipino movie after Got to believe in 2002. Truly a movie worth watching.
So where do broken hearts go? After seeing this movie, I can say that the best way to ease the pain is to share it with someone. It doesn't have to be with a special someone. It could be just anybody else that can understand and communicate with your feelings. Human as we are , We are capable of sympathizing and empathizing others. It is in our nature to show affection. This movie tells us that you need not to be alone in your dark and lonely days. Sometimes you just need someone to pour your heart out and be who you are regardless.
A funny and tickling tale of friendship, love and affection. Something that we all have in our lives but we often take for granted. This movie reminds us that love in it's truest essence don't hurt but actually heals.
