For The First Time

For The First Time is a 2008 Filipino romantic film produced by Star Cinema. It stars Richard Gutierrez and KC Concepcion. The film was shot in the Philippines and in Santorini, Greece.

This movie is all about how people are changed by love. One man is changed from his bohemian lifestyle of meeting and leaving women anytime he feels like it, into considering a life of commitment. The other is a woman who refuses the feeling of falling in love and suppresses her emotions by putting up a facade of work and civility. The effort between following one's emotion and the desire to comply with one's mission is strongly highlighted by the romantic sunsets, awe-inspiring views and diverse landscapes provided by the Greek island of Santorini.

“For the First Time” follows the lives of two teenagers from very different worlds. Seth (Richard Gutierrez) is a rich, impulsive playboy who runs away from serious relationships and doesn’t give much thought to the women he goes out with, and Pia (KC Concepcion), a prude, ambitious girl who feels responsible for the tragedy she once encountered, and with a scar to constantly remind her about this unfortunate experience. But when the two accidentally meet in Santorini, their differences did not stop them from spending one unforgettable summer together—that is until Seth runs away again, scared of the very unusual feeling that is happening within him.

This struggle between emotional attraction and rational repulsion is further enhanced when Seth comes back to Manila and tries his best to again cross his path with Pia and regain her affection.
Will he succeed? Can the womanizer Seth prove to have changed into a one-woman guy? As the two realize that they cannot easily prevent the mysterious strategies of love of keeping them together, they also cannot avoid the consequences of their past and their families’ discomfort with each other. The conflicts in land ownership and businesses of their parents are now parts of a wall that is growing in between them.

What will prevail? Is it love or is it reason? Can Pia let go of her past once and for all and have the confidence to choose the life she’s been dreaming to have? The whole story is a romantic fondue of love and the transformation it brings with all the conflicts and uncertainties being changed into a mixture of pleasant emotions and relationships.
