FACES OF LOVE

This is Eddie Romero’s attempt to regain his pride as a National Artist for Film. It tells about, hmmm, different faces of love. Hahaha. Literally, the film has a handful of characters intertwined by a mysterious love letter. Merong pinagtagpo, merong muling dinalaw, merong kumawala, merong nagwakas. I can say that the storytelling is above average (naks, critic na critic). Naikwento ng filmmaker ang gustong ikwento. The problem with the film is the scope/feel. Pagkatapos kong mapanood, para lang akong nanood ng isang TV show. Ganun ang pakiramdam.
Friends who might appreciate it: those who miss watching GMA Telesine (every Thursday at 8pm during mid-90’s).

Do something noble: avoid it. Period. Sa akting dito, parang gusto mo silang ihulog lahat sa wuthering heights (pardon the pun). I almost forgot that Michael Tuviera is a promising director.
Friends who might appreciate it: only the Kapuso ones!
