Movie Review: Mariquina

Unlike the former Philippine First Lady, Imelda is indifferent towards shoes. To her, they are fraught with the bittersweet nostalgia of childhood, one that was marred by a difficult relationship with her shoe-maker father, Romeo. Growing up, all of hers were handmade by him. Now a mature woman, she takes a pivotal call from the morgue, spurring her search for the perfect pair of shoes for her dead father. The deeper she searches for the perfect shoes, the more she finds herself.

I like the simplicity of the story yet it will surely affect you as audience. I felt the pain of Imelda being a product of broken family. Kakaiba din yung approach of storytelling ng pelikulang ito. It’s very subtle but effective. Of course good performance for Mylene na napaka natural ng acting sa pelikulang ito, Ricky Davao, Che Ramos, Bing Pimentel and Barbie Forteza that effectively justify their character.

My Verdict:  4/5
