A Secret Affair Movie Review with Quotes

Betrayal, infidelity, unfaithfulness and third party relationships are too mainstream in the Philippine movies these days. When Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsey starred in the film "No Other Woman," they have wow-ed everyone for their outstanding roles and performances. In  their second film together, these two great actor and actress succeeded again in bringing another wonderful and heart-breaking movie. 

A Secret Affair is a 2012 romance drama film starring Anne Curtis (Raffy - the girlfriend / fiancee), Derek Ramsey (Anton - the boyfriend / fiance) and Andi Eigenmann (Sam - the friend / the third party.)

Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert!

The movie is all about a couple who are madly and deeply in love with each other. After two and a half months of dating together, Anton proposed to Raffy. During the preparations for their upcoming wedding, Raffy, the fiancee, was pressured with all the comments she has been hearing from everybody and all the happenings in her life. Her confusion and fears led her to leaving Anton and becoming a run-away bride. On the night before their wedding, she went to her fiance's condominium unit, returned the engagement ring and left without giving explanations to Anton.

Raffy traveled abroad and there, she found herself. Meanwhile, Anton got his heart broken and Sam, Raffy's sorrority sister, was ready to help him heal. She was there when he was hurting. Then, they became fucking buddies - casually hooking up. For Anton, Sam is just another woman. He still loves Raffy despite what the latter has done to her. So, as expected, when Raffy came back home and explained the reasons for her disappearance, she and Anton got back together. This broke Sam's heart which motivated her to ruin the relationship of her love and her close friend. 

The story revolves around a man who loves someone so much, a woman who has been betrayed by the love of her life and another woman who fell in love at the wrong time and at a wrong person. It is truly heart breaking to see each of them suffer the consequences of what they have done. A relationship was destroyed because of a selfish woman and a friendship was destroyed because of a man who has committed a mistake.

In this movie, you will learn the value of trust in a relationship. Betrayal is like a poison. Once the other party has committed it, it is impossible for the relationship to be at its best. Despite all the efforts and considerations made, there will still be more misunderstandings, doubts and problems. There are some who can survive the infidelity and unfaithfulness. They are the ones who are strong enough to ignore the pain and disregard the doubts in their minds and hearts. When trust is broken, the relationship will never be the same again. Well, the decision depends on how the lovers believe in their love for each other,

Verdict: This is a must-see movie. It has so many lessons to share to its viewers. The actors and actresses in this film did a good job in carrying out their roles in the big screen. Every scene is also heart-breaking especially when every side of the main characters is shown. Though the ending of the movie was not something I expected, I realized that it was the right end for A Secret Affair. There is more to the plot of this film. Rating: 4.5/5.0.

I would like to congratulate the whole cast of A Secret Affair for coming up with a wonderful love story that will surely touch the hearts of all its viewers. The movie is not only about men and women relationships. It also depicts the unconditional love that a mother can give to its daughters and the support that a lovely family can provide to its members.

So, what are you waiting for? Watch this film on all cinemas nationwide. Today is just the first day.

"I could have done more."

"Betrayal, in all forms, is painful. It can make you go crazy. But we all have choices on how to deal with it. Do we just go away or stay?"

"Shut up. Bitch ka lang, ako super bitch."

"Anong ikakaso mo sa akin?"
"Trespassing? Eh di ba asawa ko ang nagbabayad dito? Adultery? Eh diba ako nga ang asawa?"

"Raffy, you are the perfect girlfriend. I don't wanna lose you. I can't lose you. Please give me another chance."

"Hindi ko alam kung ano ang mararamdaman ko. But okay, let's give us another try but this time, let's do it differently."
"Anything you want. I love you."

"She is going to be here."
"I know. But she's history."

"I'm just gonna ignore how you humiliate yourself para naman may matira pa akong respeto pa sa'yo."

"Now, you're threatening me?"
"It's not a threat. It's a promise."

"Mom, what's wrong with us? Why do men always leave us? Mahirap ba tayong mahalin?"
"No, that's not true. Think of us na parang prize sa amazing race. Ang sumusuko, talo."

"Remember, we don't need anyone who does not need us."

"We will always have each other, Sam. I love you and I will always do no matter what."

"Raffy, I wanna be married with you. Please. Please Raffy, will you marry me?"

"There has been betrayal. There's been lies. And even if I know you didn't want to hurt me, ginawa mo pa rin.."

"We have become two different people, Anton."

"Yun nga yung sayang eh. I know the love is there pero wala na yung trust. And as much as I would like to fix this, the damage has been done."

"I just want to forget all these and move on. And not with you."

"Betrayal and infidelity in secret is still betrayal and infidelity."

    Keep on posting ^^

  3. okay so i was reading the first two paragraphs and i stopped. i need to watch the movie! mukha syang interesting :D
    The Bargain Doll

  4. I'm not a big fan of Pinoy movies except for the indies. This look interesting though but I'll wait for it on TV na lang hehehe

  5. Good review at mukhang maganda ang film. Yung si Andi,never ko pang napanood ang acting. Watch ko nga ang movie na ito

  6. you're always good with reviews...very detailed. anyway, i wish i could watch this movie, i like anne curtis. hehehe! and those quotes, panalo. :)

  7. I planned of watching this next week pero since alam ko na ang story, aantayin ko nalang ipalabas sa TV. hahaha. Good review as usual, Algene. :-)

  8. cool,I'm looking forward to watch this online.

  9. Ang ganda naman nitong movie..sayang di ko mapanood ito . Thanks sa review para na rin ako nakapanood.

  10. oh another nice drama movie, Andie is such a nice actress too good that she have more movies now...

  11. Lately these kind of movie themes seem to click to madlang quote i like, cheating is not an accident its a choice, pak!

  12. This sounds like one good, intriguing movie. Looking forward to watching it.

  13. Filipino movies have definitely come a long way from the love-team, dance number genre of yesteryears. Now, movies have more depth and character- not to mention, unforgettable lines!

  14. I'm sure my friends in Pinas would be dying to watch this! Kahit ako kun nanduon ako hihihihi...

  15. I'm sure there are lots of lessons to be learned from these types of movies, its just that, for some personal reason I'm staying away from movies with themes of infidelity, fucking buddies and the likes. I actually have not seen No Other Woman even if it already aired on TV.

  16. Will be looking forward to see this movie, though not much a fan of drama movies, I want to see how the movie ends.. lol..

    1. just like any other movie, ilusyon lang. walang mahirap or middle class na ipinakita. lahat mayaman -- ang mga damit, bahay, lugar, kutis at mga mukha. walang trabaho ng totoong pagbabanat ng buto. mga trabahong pang tim yap ang ipinakita. hindi ko nga alam kung saang bansa itoh. wah

    2. at ayaw ko sa character ni derick, masyadong madrama at iyakin, ayaw ng mga foreigners nyan. lalaking malibog sa babae na bading magdrama.

  17. super nice grabe! love this movie super relate.

  18. Showing na pala to!! Geez!
    Quotes palang, wapak na! What more kung pinanood ko to! Sana makapanood ako!

  19. papaleng hindi nanunuod ng agua bendita..
    i wannawatch this..pero walang budget..

  20. good movie. way better than those other with related theme. the two girls were both gorgeous.

  21. This is not another infidelity movie, Its more of a trust-betrayal story. This movie is good but it still wont get my two thumbs up rating. I just wish that Nuel Nuval reviewed the script and had place into consideration that he had filipino stars portraying the role of each character and he had filipino audience. I understand that the two leading women had to be stylish and roles exchanged in ENGLISH is more classy like saying "BITCH" over "PAKANTOT KA!", but this movie failed big time in having memorable lines that movie goers would right on their status on facebook, 90% of the movie lines were in english, making you ask is this a VIVA FILMS picture or UNIVERSAL STUDIOS. hmmmm... It also made me wonder what could have caused the blockbuster hit of this movie? It could be because Derek Ramsey played the role of an-almost-naked-all-the-time-leading-man. (*wink*)

    and please CATE'S (Jackie lou Blanco) line "and by the way I faked every orgasm" MADE NO SENSE AT ALL!

    1. Infidelity. Trust. Betrayal. They are all present in the movie, Anon. If you just read the whole post, you will know. Plus, I have to tell you that I admire the writer!

      Anyway, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  22. sabi ko nung una, wala ng maiisip na magandang story ang mga writers for Filipino Movies...i am not really a fan though..andyan ung my neighbors wife, then no other woman, tapos the mistress & now this A secret affair...

    i was really badtrip nung pumasok ako sa sinehan to watch this movie, wala ako magagawa kasi gusto ng partner ko...nung napanuod ko na siya sabi ko not bad...nagandahan nmn ako...may mga OA lines nga lng sa movie pero maganda..

    i reccomend na panuorin eto nung may mga asawa na at in relationships...but i wont reccommend it as the best movie.:p

  23. may kulang pa. yunh " wag ka tatanga tanga di bagay sa ganda mo"

  24. Can you add the last scene when rafi, sam, and the-almost-naked-all-the-time-leading-man met at the park with their own fancy car?

    1. I'm sorry but I wasn't able to get the lines for that scene :)

  25. This movie is a mediocre... Nothing new and yong mga lines din parang regular english conversationl lang.. I am not surprise kung hindi box office hit ito. This is almost the same exact movie as their previous one iniba lang yong lines.Haaay..

  26. this movie is great guys! thumbs up! sarap ulit ulitin! ganda ng mga linya nila ni anne at andi ..

  27. I just watched this movie, it's great ! I can say that the characters are played well and you'll learn a lot about life and relationships.
