Movie Review: Shorts B - CineFilipino FIlm Festival 2016 Short Feature

A story about two kids, Bugoy and Mikko; they consider each other best friends. One day Bugoy accidentally pushed Mikko on the river because of a petty fight about the ownership of a mango fruit.  Bugoy informed his father about Mikko's death; his father decided to bury Mikko’s body in the playground. After a year Bugoy went back to the playground and saw a seedling of a mango. He pulled out the seedling and he kept it for he believed that the seedling was his best friend's memory.

My Verdict:  3/5

A guys wakes up in a room after being drunk the night before. Upon realizing that he is in a room he’s not familiar with and apparently not alone, he notices someone sleeping at the same bed.  Unable to recognize that someone, he panics and tries to figure out what exactly happened. But during their unresolved conversations, he eventually found out something he didn’t expect.

My Verdict:  3.5/5

Not Applicable exposes the effect to children who are illegitimate and who are products of broken families.
One random afternoon, days after the death of her father, Elsa meets her half sister, Anna for the first time. Over the course of their meeting, both of them realize just how different they are as people and how differently their father’s absence affected them.
Eventually, both of them get to the matter at hand: the inheritance from their "father" . Elsa can’t wait to get rid of it at first, but changes her mind when she thinks she has discovered it’s hidden value. The two fight over the table, resulting in a senseless and half-baked solution.


My Verdict: 3.5/5
