Movie Review: Manang Biring

Manang Biring is a comedy-drama about a feisty but terminally-ill old lady who has learned to accept her imminent demise. Until one day, she receives a letter from her long-estranged daughter abroad announcing of her return for the holidays. As she races against time with her declining health, Biring will go to great lengths to prolong her life and gift her daughter and grandson a Happy Christmas. 

Manang Biring is a likable, tearjerker, heartwarming family oriented film anchored with the affecting performance by Erlinda Villalobos. Visually and technologically innovative with engaging performance from the supporting cast: Mailes Kanapi and Alcris Galura. A nice catch in this years' Cinema One Originals Film Festival.

My Verdict: 4/5
