Mukhang hindi kasama ang movie sales sa criteria ng best picture :) :)

Maganda yung Ang Larawan, pero parang hindi nga pang-masa. Mas madali siguro ibenta kung hindi musical, tulad nung napanood ko sa CCP starring celeste legaspi and noemi manikan-gomez.
Pero the best pa rin yung original version ni daisy avellana and naty crame-rogers.

Siargao is nice. Kilala na si Jericho sa acting and of course very convincing ang pagganap nya dito and so with Erich na gusto ko rin ang pagka visayan accent nya. Sana nilagyan din ng anggulo na galing siya sa isang probinsiya na visayan speaking. Pure Manila girl kasi ang character nya dito. Pero i see this only as a minor issue. The character of Jasmine is just enough as a probinsiyana. Ok lang ang acting nya as simple provincial lad. All characters have done their part well. Got no major issue on the movie and the story. I highly recommend this as well.

Yung Siargao as a destination, ganun na ba talaga doon? Mala Boracay na rin ba talaga ang nightlife? Im asking kasi noong pumunta ako dun e, di pa ganun at wala pang bridge yung papuntang viewdeck nag babangka kami noon. hehehe! dapat siguro makabalik.

Ang Larawan (Loy Arcenas) *** - Based on the Filipino National Artist Nick Joaquin play, A Portrait of an Artist as a Filipino and also based on the stage musical based on the play, this is about two spinster sisters and the final painting of their artist father, the titular Portrait. It's just before World War II and they've hit financial difficulty but they refuse to sell their sick father's final work, as per his request. Let's start with the positives: The acting is outstanding. Everyone here is at their A-game. They sing and act beautifully. The ensemble that comprises of lots of respected veteran Filipino character actors and singers in bit parts were fun.  The score is strong. The period detail is on point. Unfortunately, this suffers from rather stage-y, flat direction. The point and shoot type. This material calls for someone who can direct in a more dynamic manner. It's set largely in one location so they could have had more fun with the cinematic transfer. I sat there thinking how I would block , stage and choreograph a particular scene. But with this flaw, it's still a well-meaning passionate work and must be see by Filipinos during this MMFF.

Deadma Walking (Julius Alonso) *** - A young gay man is diagnosed with terminal cancer. As one of his final wishes, he asks his platonic gay best friend to hold his funeral for him in advance. This is surprisingly pretty good. It's a bit reminiscent of the previous year's Metro Manila Film Festival Die Beautiful. (Are we going to have a sub-genre of dramedies about gays dying with Eugene Domingo in a special role? Gosh, I hope not). You know, for a film that has got genuinely laugh out loud moments, it is essentially a rather sad film (even sadder and more tragic than Die Beautiful). It mostly juggles the comedy and the drama fairly well, a very tricky thing to do. The performances are pretty good with fun cameos from Filipino celebrities making the most out of their limited time on-screen. (Doesn't Carmi Martin ever age?)

This is a pretty good MMFF entry.

Larawan- i believe using other locations within the house could have been better instead of just the boring leaving room. The kitchen could have been a nice place because of interesting items that tou could see. Remember the setting is pre-war and i love to see them maybe cooking using old stove and other old cooking materials. the title is larawan but actually di ko yata nakita ang larawan na yan maybe nakapikit mata ko at that time.

Noong pumasok sa eksena si Ogie bigla naghagikhikan ang karamihan ako din. Why? pang comedy kasi si Ogie and di ineexpect na masali siya dito.

We did the audio for Larawan, it almost took  a year or so due to re recording on  some singing parts ,additional shoots, and re editing, there's an edit that it showed the actual painting, .. . although it was digitally rendered ,maganda siya for me atleast hehe, it was as described by the sisters and Bitoy, they really hard time to decide to show it or not, ..well better not to ..for marketing reasons narin siguro ..malay natin magkaron ng directors cut showing the actual "Larawan" in its full glory

I think not showing the painting is the right choice.

Saw SIARGAO, camera shake at the beginning was really awful plus the film itself is not that clear.  Si jericho lang nagdala, erich’s acting needs oooomph , a lot of oooomph. Kulang sa power. Yun nga lang ang ganda ng katawan, wag lang magsalita.

Not showing the painting in Larawan provokes the audience to use their imagination. When I watched the stage play , all the audience could see was an empty frame looming above the characters.
But in the Lamberto Avellana version, it was shown briefly.
