Mga Anino ng Kahapon: Movie Review

Mga Anino ng Kahapon
By: Lakwatsera Lovers

There are five entries in this year's MMFF New Wave section, and it so happens that we've got to see one of them thanks to MMFF twitter page. You can still catch this local indie festival in its final two days December 23-24 for a very low price of  P100 each ticket at SM Megamall Cinema 7 and Glorietta 4 Cinema 1.  

Married-couple Ed and Irene (TJ Trinidad and Agot Isidro) are both nurses with one son named Brian. Ed decided to work in Dubai to earn more for his family. Strangely, after a few months, Irene begins to experience some hallucinations of people from martial law that she's the only who can see. As her condition worsens, Ed decided to go home and seek some medical attention to his ailing wife. 

The story of the film tackles about a really serious mental disorder. It let the viewers see an incurable  schizophrenia and watch the family struggle to help the patient. At first, the audience found some of the scenes funny (including us), but after the film it made us realize if that actually happens to one of your family members, it's gonna be tough to live in that situation. 

What made the movie compelling is the great performances of its cast. Agot Isidro is pretty solid from start to finish. She gave a very decent acting that provides the tone for the movie. While TJ Trinidad manages to keep a steady pace with Agot resulting into a good on screen chemistry between the two.

Overall, Mga Anino ng Kahapon is one of those films that's going to be a tough sell to the public. Although this is one of those films that is worth-it to occupy the slots into our cinemas. Try to watch it, before its too late. 

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 8 out of 10 stars
