Yes, it was not perfect, but it deserved its best picture award compared to the other movies that are playing in this year's MMFF.
Carla Humphries can be a bitch and she could also be endearing. Here, as Isabelle Manahan, who works at the United Nations in Amsterdam. Her character Isabelle owes a lot to Senator Alcaraz. She also gives him sound advice.
Cholo Barretto, Winwyn Marquez and Markki Stroem play the children of the Alcaraz couple...oh to have to live with the stigma of being Alcaraz's children. All I can say is that they played their parts well, but may I add a compliment for Winwyn? She is now not just Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno's daughter. :) She definitely in class of her own.
Ketchup Eusebio needs to have a bigger break. He can be funny, yes, but he needs more roles like the one he played in DUGONG BUHAY.
EVERYONE should be given a standing ovation, even those I did not mention here.
Keiko Aquino lives up to my expectations with the help of Ryllah Epifanio Berico or is it the other way around? In any case, they collaborated well. (Screenplay)
Marya Ignacio is a very good editor. If ever there were itty-bitty lapses, they were so minute that we hardly ever notice them.
Marissa Floreindo should be given a standing ovation. She did her job as a cinematographer well.
Teresa Barrozo chose the music well. Haunting, exciting, thrilling, endearing, et cetera, et cetera.
Kudos to everyone involved in this film.
