This time, the film opens showing the lovers [...] breaking up right at the start of the story.
In an interview, she stated "This one's different, though, as it's more of a drama and not really a romantic-comedy.
In romantic comedies, we usually follow the formula of the two lovers having a cute meet, then they start fighting each other, but you know that in the end, they will still end up in each other's arms.
In 2008, Molina directed A Very Special Love, a romantic comedy film which talks about Laida Magtalas (portrayed by Sarah Geronimo) who is a fresh graduate and applies for a job in a magazine publishing company owned by Miggy Montenegro (played by John Lloyd Cruz).
Laida is a simple girl and is the breadwinner of her family, while Miggy is a rich, handsome businessman.
In 2007, Molina worked with John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo for the second time in the film One More Chance (first time was in the film Close to You), released by Star Cinema.
It differed from her previous films, becoming her first romantic film to contain such solid drama and a mature feeling.
