Louise Delos Reyes and Diego Loyzaga get serious in their latest movie “The Wife” as they admit that the project was so emotionally draining.

“Kakaiba siya in a way na every after shoot namin, kailangan naming bumitaw sa character. Kailangan mong magpagpag ng emotions kasi ang bigat niya in a good way. Na-stretch talaga yung emotions ko and parang lahat ng eksena, binibigay ko yung 100 percent ko,” said Louise during a Zoom media conference for “The Wife” which will premiere exclusively on Vivamax on Feb. 11.

Louise said she’s thankful for the opportunity to work with Gawad Urian Best Director Denise O’ Hara. “I’m very thankful dahil si Direk Denise, ni li-lead ka nya doon sa gusto niyang lumabas sa eksena. Hindi mo na pi-feel sa kanya ‘yung pressure. Napaka-supportive rin ng cast.”

“Emotionally draining siya. Nung napanood ko nga yung trailer naiyak ako,” Louise added.

Diego said it’s his first time to appear in a heavy-drama flick.

“I’ve never played this role before na ganun nangyari sa script. It’s definitely a different level of heaviness. It was a heavy script, heavy drama pero ganda ng message. You really have to make pagpag after the scenes, sabi nga ni Louise. You can’t take it home,” he said.

Newbie Cara Gonzales said she enjoyed doing the film. “As a newcomer, ang dami kong natutunan sa kanila at wala akong naramdaman na pressure dahil ang gaan nilang ka work.”

“The Wife” is O’Hara’s first mainstream project, as she is focused on doing independent films.

Asked why she accepted the steamy adult drama, O’Hara said: “Hindi naman puwede na yun na lang lagi ang ginagawa mo. Kailangan mo ring mag grow as a director. So ginawa ko ito and gusto ko yung kuwento. Viva was good enough to let me do this project with them. I fell in love with the story.”

O’ Hara cited the difference in doing a mainstream movie and indie film.

“May pressure sa paggawa ng mainstream movie dahil malaki ang audience na kailangan mong i-address. So yun ang adjustment na dapat gawin,” she said.

While she wrote the screenplay for the movie, she’s more than willing to direct other films written by other people. Wala namang problema sa akin yun. I’ve worked na rin with other directors na rin. So there’s joy din naman siguro to direct someone else’s script. I think it will happen soon. Darating tayo dyan. Pero wala akong issue directing someone else’s script.”

In the movie, Louise Delos Reyes is Mara, a soft-spoken wife of Cris (Diego Loyzaga). Their marriage turns sour when Cris cheats on her ex-girlfriend, Lee (Cara Gonzales), an aggressive and outspoken woman, the total opposite of Mara. But as the couple learns to recuperate from their broken relationship, Cris is diagnosed with cancer.

“The Wife” reflects on how long should you fight for marriage despite infidelity. And in faithfully committing to the marriage vow of being together in sickness and in health, how would the lawful spouse accept a dying plea that involves the mistress?
