Family Matters (MMFF 2022)

Directed by: Nuel Naval

Nakakaiyak sa ganda.

Tumatagos ang bawat linya at eksena.

Nag-uumapaw sa puso ang pelikula.

Ramdam mo ang pagmamahal ng pamilya.

Hindi man perpekto… ngunit kaninong pamilya ba ang hindi nagkakamali ?

Hindi rin perpekto ang pelikulang ito. Pero ang pagmamahal na ipinakita nila ay higit pa sa sapat para ito’y maibigan mo.

The ensemble is perfect and lovable, embodying a big family with a big heart. The movie has too many actors and actresses, but each one of them was given enough spotlight to impart a message or two.

Every generation, from grandparents to parents to grandchildren, was given importance. Every character has flaws and those flaws were acknowledged.

All the scenes are relatable. Everything feels familar. Filipino culture is highlighted, and love for family is evident. This is one beautiful Filipino movie, made by Filipinos, for Filipinos.

Masarap maging Pilipino sa mga pagkakataong ito. Ipinamukha ng pelikulang ito kung paano tayo magmahal bilang Pilipino at bilang Pamilya.

This movie puts Filipino Family on pedestal while also embracing its imperfections.

Cliché as it may sound — every Filipino should watch this movie, because it values what truly matters… and that is Family.

This movie matters.

Definitely a great and wonderful movie. This is like seven sundays but much darker.
