CHILDREN OF THE RIVER

Children of the River (Cinemalaya 2019)

Directed by: Maricel Cariaga


Itong movie ay parang river na hindi mo alam saan patungo. Along the way, there are good surprises. While most of it are bad.


The script felt like a “script”. The language is too formal. Ang stiff ng conversations. The phasing and scoring is dry.


The good surprise in this movie is the lead star. Nakakadala si Noel Comia Jr.. Feels effortless and natural. You'll be with him throughout the show. The movie can actually revolve around him alone.


But it didn’t. The movie was ambitious to tackle more. Losing the direction along the way.
