Movie Review: Shorts A - Cinemalaya 2017 Film Festival

Set during the launch of the first space shuttle of the Philippines,  an ordinary old couple living in the suburbs attempts to go about their life during this strange day.

The original premise, unique writing and proper laughs standout on this short film.

My Verdict: 4/5

After he was bullied one night, Joshua decided to take matters into his own hands. But things don't go as planned, so he is left with no choice but to seek help from his policeman father.

 Less is more in this film as its been able to explore the two main characters in details in just 11 minutes. Fine performances from all of the cast

My Verdict: 4.5/5

A young woman returns to her hometown to meet her Grandmother Loleng who suffers from dementia. Together, they will unearth the old lady’s innermost secrets and wartime experiences.

 Transcends its familiar premise with a heartfelt look that's honored by animation.

My Verdict: 3/5

In the absence of their OFW mother, two young brothers have to deal with the sudden loss of their father. 

 Bitter sweet short film shot creatively.

My Verdict: 4/5

The film tells the story of a lone, apathetic plastic bottle collector named Caloy, who gets caught in the middle of two warring gangs. That incident changes his disposition in life forever.

 A decent brand of comic book that came to life and political satire that manage to generate a sufficient number of laughs

My Verdict: 3.5/5

The film revolves around the incredible story of man and his natural relationship with the ocean. Because of his old age and physical frailty, Manong decides what he will do next after retiring from the only profession he knows, a fisherman

 Loved the underwater cinematography

My Verdict: 3/5
