Bela Padilla is one of the most bankable actresses in the Philippines today. Not only is she beautiful and sexy – she’s really talented!
In the past years, Bela starred in a number of movies that are considered as box-office hits and critically acclaimed. As a big fan, I am happy to share my Top 5 Favorite Bela Padilla Movies:
1. 100 Tula Para Kay Stella
The biggest hit of the very 1st Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino! For me, this is the movie that made Bela Padilla a box-office star. In this Jason Paul Laxamana film, she plays the role of Stella, a college student who is in a rock band who caught the attention of the stuttering poet Fidel. An unlikely but special friendship developed between the two and eventually, they developed romantic feelings.
The movie is relatable especially for those who spent their college years in the province. I end up crying in the scene where Stella and Fidel reunited in Pampanga infront of the Mt. Arayat. “Hindi na puwede, eh..”
2. Meet Me in St. Gallen
Jesse and Celeste forever! This movie is a great comeback of Carlo Aquino as a leading man. The movie penned and directed by Irene Villamore is divided in three sections: A chance meeting in Manila, a coincidental meeting in a coffee shop and in St. Gallen in Switzerland. The movie is a perfect example of “we have the right love at the wrong time”. I sad there in the movie house still hoping for another scene for a happy ending (SPOILER: It’s Not!).
