They say that true friends say nice things behind your back and bad things to your face. Tough love is tough to take, but if your BFF can't give you a much-needed reality check, then who will? It’s a necessity, especially if you find yourself in an extremely difficult situation, like Sam and Isa in the movie Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa. Sam is a filmmaker who has a fellowship waiting for him in Berlin; Isa is an aspiring writer who is leaving for the US—and is also in a relationship with another person. These are just a few reasons why their relationship seems to be doomed, with one plot twist revealed at the very end further complicating things.

To be fair, it's hard to see things clearly when you're in the middle of everything. That's what best friends are for—to knock some sense into you. Sam luckily had Luke, who blew up the second Sam confessed everything to him. Here are just a few of Luke’s truth bombs to save for when the situation calls for it!  

  1. Truth Bomb #1: The Time Reality Check

"Pa'no kami mag-b-break, eh hindi naman kami?"

"Sinong niloko mo? Ano 'yun, mutual landian lang?"

Translation: You can fool yourself but not your bestie. 

  1. Truth Bomb #2: The Fact Check

"Ang labo. Kala ko hindi kayo? Tapos nagkaro'n tayo ng time frame na six months?"

No detail gets past the BFF.

  1. Truth Bomb #3: The Analysis

"Kilala kita eh. Nag-overthink ka na naman tapos sinabayan mo ng katangahan. Ayun, boom!"

Ouch.

  1. Truth Bomb #4: The Advice

"Real talk lang. Kayang-kaya mong ipaglaban 'yan. Masyado mo lang in-o-overthink lahat. 'Yung pagka-filmmaker mo masyado mong pinapasok sa bawat aspeto ng buhay mo."

The truth really hurts.

  1. Truth Bomb #5: The Tough Love

"Ikaw matalino ka, pero mas madalas kang tanga eh 'no? Isip-isip din minsan! Sabak ka ng sabak. Sana dun tayo sa tama. Alam mo naman ‘yung ending nito eh."

Mic. Drop.

As you very well know, though, try as your friends might to give good advice, the next step will be ultimately up to you. Your best friends are just there to help you out—and maybe say "I told you so" when the time is right!

Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa is now available to stream on iFlix.
