Movie Review: Baka Siguro Yata

Baka Siguro Yata is a comedy drama which revolves around Carlo, a 29-year old unambitious graphic designer whose only passion is to play music with his co-unambitious long-time friends. After discovering that his girlfriend of 6 years is a lesbian, he seeks to find refuge on a one-night stand with a high school classmate named Melissa. However, Melissa gets pregnant which in turns everything in disarray. Melissa’s sister and her boyfriend mulls over their planned first sex but gets cold feet due to what happened to her sister. Carlo’s divorced parents, on the other hand, discreetly starts seeing each other as they rekindle their 20 year old relationship by having an affair and secret meetings while they cheat on their new partner. Baka Siguro Yata tells a story of love within three generations. It tells how each generation understand and perceive the idea of love.

The film marks a mightily impressive screenwriting and directing and exceptional achievement in acting performance by the cast from Ricky Davao, Cherrry Gil, newcomer Dino Pastrano up to Alex Medina, Jerald Napoles and Anna Luna. I love the male humor that will make you fall of your chair and the filmmaker's vision that's strongly felt in the film. Another nice film to catch in this years' Cinema One Originals Film Festival.

My Verdict: 4/5
