Metro Manila Official Poster and Trailer

Synopis of the Film

Seeking a brighter future in megacity Manila, Oscar Ramirez and his family flee their impoverished life in the rice fields of the northern Philippines.

But the sweltering capital's bustling intensity quickly overwhelms them, and they fall prey to the rampant manipulations of its hardened locals. Oscar catches a lucky break when he's offered steady work for an armored truck company and gregarious senior officer Ong takes him under his wing. Soon, though, the reality of his work's mortality rate and the murky motives of his new partner force Oscar to confront the perils he faces in his new job and life.

My Take On Trailer

The Audience Award for Best World Dramatic Film at the Sundance Film Festival 2013 on its International premiere and the British entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards. I was impressed with the trailer. Mukhang maganda ang execution and edting ng pelikula. Looks like our own Metro Manila was pictured differently in this film. Parang hindi sa Metro Manila shinoot yung movie. I like the texture and feel of the film based on the trailer.
