Movie Review: Kakampi

An ordinary taxi ride takes Jun, a young executive, into the unusual story of Ben, a 35 year-old taxi driver in Manila on how he became a lanzones farmer in Camiguin island, Mindanao. His story starts a few years back. Ben (30) is an arrogant sales executive who works for a cellphone seller in Manila. He come home to Camiguin Island, because he thought he’s going to inherit a large farmland which he plans to turn into a vacation resort. But it turns out the farmland was not as big as he imagined.

Kakampi is a consideration of how the material world can intersect with imagined worlds. Neil Sese is a strong lead bounded by the solid veteran supporting cast Suzette Ranillo and Gloria Sevilla. Without a satisfying resolution, Kakampi ultimately sheds very little light on its own subject. It is about as strange and obscure as you can get.

My Verdict:  3/5


Neil Ryan Sese

The Filmmaker of Kakampi: Vic Acedillo Jr.
