Filipino Movies with Titles that Include the Word "Puso" (Heart): 1994 to 1996

Today is Valentine's Day or Araw ng mga Puso in Tagalog. Araw ng mga Puso literally translates to English as "Day of the Hearts." In light of this celebration, let us recall some old movies having titles that include the word puso (heart). As expected, these films belong to the romance and/or drama genres.

Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko (I Wish I Had Two Hearts), a co-production by Viva Films and GMA Network, opened in theaters on July 27, 1994. Rustom Padilla, Dina Bonnevie and Alice Dixson led the cast of this movie. The title is based on a song by Bodjie's Law of Gravity. Under the direction of Laurice Guillen, other cast members include Gloria Romero, Tonton Gutierrez and Charito Solis.

The cast of Kazuki Omori's Sigaw ng Puso (Cry of the Heart), a co-production by Premier International Corp. and Megavision Films, includes Filipino and Japanese actors. Lorna Tolentino, Sharmaine Arnaiz and Hiroyuki Sanada led the cast. Cynthia Luster even had a guest role in this movie, which opened in theaters on November 23, 1995.

A check with this movie's IMDB entry shows that the Japanese title is Kinkyu yobidashi - Emajenshi koru (Emergency Call). Omori is also known for directing a couple of Godzilla movies: Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989) and Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991).
