I wonder if the original cut is actually better.

I just watched Sonata at the National Film Festival (All Masters Edition) at SM.



The story is somewhat predictable, and the pacing is really slow. While the cinematography is beautiful, all the handheld shots are ridiculously shaky. Cherie Gil gave a great if occasionally over-the-top performance.

If any of you plan to watch it, I'd say avoid searching for the trailer online. It gives away almost all of the poignant scenes in the film.

It's okay, but uneven. Not bad for 101 pesos.

Making the rounds today on Facebook:

Quote
Was having a nice lunch with Christopher Reyes and Quincho in Mamou, Rockwell, when a baby from another table started crying. Seated behind us was the director, Peque Gallaga (PG), in a meeting with G Toengi and others. PG complained to the waiter about the noisy baby. PG: "This is ridiculous! We're having a meeting here and there's a baby crying. This would be banned in the States!" This got our blood boiling already but we let it slide. A few minutes later, another baby, this time, the one seated beside us, started crying as well. One of PG's minions called the waiter and demanded that the baby be asked to leave the restaurant. At this point, Shorty and I were fuming mad, we just had to speak up.

Me: "This is a public place. If you wanted a quiet meeting, you should have held it in an office!"

The restaurant manager approached PG's group and asked if they wanted to sit outside.

PG: "No, we won't transfer outside. THAT baby should leave!"

Me: "Who the hell do you think you are?!!"

Shorty: "It's a baby!!!"

PG: "He may be special to you but he's not special to us."

Me: "He's a stranger to us. He's not even our baby!"

Although the manager told PG that Mamou was a family restaurant, he and his minions continued to bitch about how they were bothered by the baby.

Me: "You, SIR, are a horrible, horrible person!!! I have lost all respect for you."

Shorty: "You have absolutely no class!"

As we walked out of the restaurant and the manager and staff apologized profusely to us, one of PG's minions called out to Shorty: "You are all class." And Shorty goes: "I totally agree with you." Then Shorty went to the mom of the crying baby and said "I love your baby!"

I liked one of his films (tho not it must be noted, as much as Laurice Guillen's exercise in the genre), kinda sorta like a handful of others, that's it.

Just saw peque on tv today, replay ng cooking show ni janice de belen. He's not fat, parang morbidly obese na! Hope he slims down for his health.
