MANILA, Philippines – French-Filipina model and TV personality Solenn Heussaff goes to great lengths to seduce the man she loves in the uncut trailer for the romance-drama film "Seduction".
The Regal Films project is directed by Peque Gallaga, who is behind the acclaimed films "Oro, Plata, Mata" (1982) and "Scorpio Nights" (1985).
In uncut trailer for "Seduction" released online Friday, Heussaff is seen as Sophia, whose life is saved from a hotel fire by Ram (Richard Gutierrez). As a way of seducing the fireman, Sophia hires him as her bodyguard.
Ram, however, is drawn to another woman, Trina (Sarah Lahbati). Described as "conservative" and "life-giving" by Gallaga, Sarah soon falls prey to Ram's seductive ways.
Caught between the two women, Ram is left to tackle the brewing conflict that pits "fire" (Sophia) against "rain" (Labhati).
In an earlier interview, Gallaga described the central theme of "seduction" as psychological, rather than physical.
"Their self is a form of seduction," the acclaimed director told the Philippine Star. "You have a man who loves two women. Gusto niya ito, gusto din niya ito."
"This is not the type of seduction which is trying hard. Their being or their personality is the seduction," he said.
"Seduction" opens in cinemas nationwide on January 30.
