A GIRL AND A GUY

A Girl and A Guy (2021)

Directed by: Erik Matti


Kwento ng isang babae at isang lalaki.

At lahat ng nangyayari sa kanilang dalawa.


Siksik, liglig at umaapaw ang pelikulang ito sa dami ng kanilang sinasabi at pinapakita.


Siksik sa paksa. Pinag-usapan nila ang kanilang trabaho, negosyo, pangarap, pag-ibig, pamilya, kasalan at kalibugan. Ngunit hindi maganda ang pagkakatahi.


Liglig sa sex scenes at nudity na nakadagdag libog, pero hindi nakadagdag halaga sa pelikula.


Umaapaw sa visual effects na iba’t iba ang atake. Madalas romcom, pero minsan fantasy, horror, sci-fi, drama, action, documentary tapos puro narration. Andami ring samu’t saring kanta na pinutogtog sa bawat eksena. Masyado silang galak magpakitang gilas.


Parang iba’t ibang tao ang gumawa ng pelikula. O isang dekada silang hindi nakagawa ng pelikula. At binuhos nila lahat ng naipon nilang mga ideas at effects, kahit magkakaiba ito at hindi swak sa iisang banga.


The movie gives you a little bit of everything without sorting them out, losing the chance to create a unified theme and a solid message. There are no big special moments to anticipate, since the flow of their story abruptly changes.


They only live through small individual moments.


Each scene has its merit. If you’re going to concentrate on their conversations alone, you’ll get lessons and realizations. All their thoughts were abundantly shared. Them being generous, free and true are the qualities that added beauty to this film.


Every discussion has its valid argument. Two sides are shown, making you evaluate and weigh the situation better.


The actors are raw and fresh, yet they all can carry a scene. Their frustations and triumphs are easily pass on you. The journey of the two main characters are chaotic and messy. But everytime they reach a pinnacle, you feel it too.


Having a good story and an erratic storytelling, this movie created on and off moments. How will they be remembered?


Siksik, liglig at umaapaw ang pelikulang ito sa dami ng kanilang sinasabi at pinapakita.
