Movie Review: Kusina

“Kusina” (The Kitchen) is the silent witness to the life and love of Juanita. It is her sanctuary, the place where she creates dishes for her family, her friends, even enemies and strangers. Through cooking, she gets to know the people around her, and in return, reveal herself to them.

Kusina feels like watching a stage play and they are successful in delivering this kind of feel to the audience. I love the story of the film, it's touching and heartwarming especially for mothers who are fully devoted to their family. Editing is vital in this film as it will make or break the film but it succeeds in doing fine cut and transition for each timeline. Kusina is an acting piece and a quality film for Judy Ann Santos that expectedly deliver and gave justice to her role. Overall Kusina is one of my favorite and nice catch in this festival if you would like to see something new in execution and storytelling.

My Verdict:  4/5
