“Kailangan Kita” (“I Need You,” 2002) is one of those usual love stories in Filipino films about disparate people who fall in love in the most inopportune time and place. Filipino actress Claudine Barretto, at the height of her popularity, plays a rebel-coddling barrio lass (Filipino matinee idol Jericho Rosales plays the communist rebel) and Aga Muhlach a Filipino-American cook who, it turns out, is son to a former rebel himself.
