Between this movie and the TV show Forevermore, everyone's itching to go to Sagada, where there is magic in the freezing cold, clouds upon clouds to soak up your feels, and wide open spaces to lose (and find) yourself.

From the same writer and director of That Thing Called Tadhana comes another story that will make you want to pack up and leave (this time to Leyte), take risks, and even fall in love. (And maybe dye your hair purple like Sofia Andres.)

Okay, so that's three movies, but how can you stop at one? Celine and Jesse talk the talk and walk the walk from Vienna to Paris to Greece over the course of 18 years. It's love at its realest.
