Movie Review: Shorts B: Cinemalaya 2015 Film Festival

When extreme devotion and unconditional love collide, a mother and her daughter find their escape out of the loophole that binds them together.

  I love the non conventional approach of the short film. Abstract and Experimental

My Verdict:  3/5 

Before leaving Pampanga for good, Tib chances upon an old map that triggers him to retrace the places that are special to him and his high school best friend Tric.

I like the look, color and shots of the film that tells a thousand words. 
A unique, subtle, affecting relationship short film.
My Verdict: 4/5 

“Pusong Bato” (Stone Heart) is about Cinta Dela Cruz, a middle-aged faded actress who tries to relive and remember her glorious days as a movie star in the 1970s. She does this by watching films at home everyday until one day, during an earthquake; something breaks into her window and wakes her up from her Hollywood dream.

 The satire on this film is at times both deep and clever with matching top-notch performance from Mailes Canapi.
Unique, witty and discerning. A one of a kind short film!

My Verdict:  5/5 

A young boy’s journey as they take his father to his final resting place.

Visually stunning and beautifully photographed short film that please the eyes of the audience

My Verdict:  4/5 

During a performance, a ventriloquist suddenly finds himself talking with his past. Will he continue the conversation or remain tight-lipped form a voice long kept?

I like the premise, somehow entertaining and affecting.

My Verdict:  3/5
