Tagalog Movie Greats

This movie is definitely a tear jerker. I was crying already way before I should have because the story just tugs on the hearstring. It does not have fancy metaphors (unless I have missed those), it relies on the storyline and the cast. It's a story of a boy who changed the lives of people around him by being at service to others. The last time I cried so hard over a movie was when I saw Pay It Forward.

Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros
This movie is a light film that portrays the harsh realities of the slum areas in the Philippines. Yes, it does tackle some gay issues but mostly I got caught up by how it is so difficult to be black and white in varied aspects of our lives. There will always be a gray area. This indie film has been so artistically crafted and metaphors abound everywhere. My fave scene is that of an orchid floating on the murky waters of Ilog Pasig.

I wish they'd make more Tagalog movies that are really worth watching. We have always prided (yes, there is such a word) ourselves of being creative, imaginative and talented. I wonder if there will come a time when we will just take pride of what we are as a people and start supporting one another.
