If you are familiar with Anna Manalastas, you know what I’m talking about. In fact, there is a little, if not too much, of an Anna inside of us. And maybe, at some point in your life, you were an Anna Manalastas, the Coney Reyes persona.
100 Days to Heaven is not your typical teledrama. You would fall in love with the characters portrayed by Coney Reyes as the adult Anna who died and was brought back to life as a young girl portrayed by Xyriel Manabat. Jodi Santamaria as Anna’s “sidekick” is good, too; she has screen chemistry with both Coney and Xyriel. Coney Reyes has always been my favorite since her “Coney Reyes on Camera” days. She just have this certain charm. But the real scene-stealer is Xyriel Manabat, she’s just so good in portraying good/bad roles. That’s what we call TALENT.
If I were in Anna’s shoes, I guess 100 days is not enough to correct every wrong decisions that I made, to make peace with every persons that I offended and generally, to edit or revise my life. In real life, we don’t have a second chance like Anna; that opportunity to be resurrected or reincarnated to correct whatever we want to correct. In real life, our second chance is correcting every misdoings that we did right after we realize that we should never did that in the first place.
