Katorse (1980)
« on: Jun 04, 2010 at 04:42 PM »
The Dina Bonnevie/Alfie Anido/Gabby Concepcion 1980 classic by Joey Gosiengfiao is now on DVD!



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Picture quality ranges from very good to poor - one short 5 minute segment is very faded with a greenish hue, but most of the film looks quite good for a film from this era. Unlike some of the other Regal Classic DVD releases, this does not look like it was mastered from an old videotape. But to prepare you for the unevenness in picture quality, there's actually a warning at the start of the main feature regarding this varying image quality due to poor source material.

The film runs 101 minutes and is uncut, but is missing the closing credits. You may choose to view the film with English subtitles. Audio is DD 2.0.

My major gripe about the DVD is that you cannot fast forward or skip through the FBI/Interpol warnings, two movie trailers and a couple of commercials that play automatically when you first play the disc. You'll lose maybe 8-10 minutes every time you insert this disc into your player.

Still, I've been waiting to own this title since... it first came out in theaters in 1980 (Wow, tanda!  ;D), so ok lang.

To purchase this film in the Philippines, call Regal Films at 63-2-9100501.

Sa probinsiya... pinapasok ako kahit elementary pa lang ako. ;)

may kwento ako. sa probinsya namin (ilocos norte), may isang lumang simbahan. binomba ito ng mga hapon noong world war 2 (na-reconstruct na sya ngayon at ginagamit na ulit). tuwing summer, umuuwi kami sa ilocos para magbaksyon. bata pa ako noon, kainitan ng flordeluna sa channel 9  ;)

isang araw, may nagsabi sa amin na nagsu-shooting si janice de belen sa lumang simbahan. sugod naman kami ng mga kapatid at kalaro ko. pero ang inabutan namin mga artistang di pa kilala sa probinsya. (remember, walang cable noon at internet, circa 1978-79.) kaya disappointed kami. nageensayo sa elevated platform sa gitna yung bidang lalaki. yung bidang babae nakaupo sa tabi ng direktor. yung direktor nag-iilokano pa, sinasaway kaming mga nanonood ng shooting. naka "LT" t-shirt sya (short for lorna tolentino).

pagkalipas ng ilang buwan mula nang makabalik kami sa maynila, nagulat na lang kami. sa tv at fan magazines, nandoon yung mga nakita namin sa lumang simbahan. sikat na sikat na.

nalaman kong dina bonnevie pala ang pangalan ng bidang babae at si alfie anido yung bidang lalaki. si joey gosiengfiao yung direktor na naka-LT t-shirt. at katorse ang pamagat ng kinunang pelikula sa lumang simbahan namin sa ilocos norte. :)

kaya ayun, lumaki akong naging tagahanga ng regal films at regal babies ;D
