MANILA — "Belle Douleur," about the love affair between a woman and a man half her age, is the latest addition to iWant's rich movie library.
The iWant Original film, the title of which translates to "beautiful pain," follows the story of Liz (Mylene Dizon), a 45-year-old psychologist, and Josh (Kit Thompson), a 20-year-old musician.
They cross paths when Liz puts up for sale old furniture and items in her ancestral home, capturing the interest of Josh, who also happens to be an antique collector and seller.
"Belle Douleur" marks the directorial debut of long-time film producer Joji Alonso, and is co-produced with Quantum Films.
It premiered last year at the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival, where it won the audience choice award for full-length entries.
"Belle Douleur" is now available to stream on iWant for free.
