Palimos ng Pag-ibig (film)
|Palimos ng Pag-ibig|
|Directed by||Eddie Garcia|
|Distributed by||Viva Films|
On the outside, married couple Fina (Santos) and Rodel (Manzano) Alcaraz appear to be a match made in heaven, but behind the thick walls of their home, their relationship is on the verge of crumbling. Despite being relatively affluent, the couple is empty as they are childless, for any attempt to conceive might prove fatal to Fina due to her condition. In an act of desperation, Rodel takes matters into his own hands and seeks the services of a surrogate, Ditas (Bonnevie).
The plan goes awry when Rodel becomes genuinely attracted to the younger and more alluring Ditas, who has lived a destitute life, finds the notion of prosperity equally irresistible. The well-intentioned plan to resuscitate life back into a dying marriage becomes its undoing.

In popular culture
The film was the origin of the line, "Para kang karenderiáng bukás sa lahát ng gustong kumain!" ("You're like an eatery open to anyone who wants to eat!"). The line refers to a character accusing another of engaging in prostitution.
