KUNG PAANO SIYA NAWALA

Kung Paano Siya Nawala (2018)

Directed by: Joel Ruiz


JM de Guzman has face blindness wherein he easily forgets the faces of the people he meets.


Easy for this movie to tell his condition and give awareness. But hard for them to share his story and raise empathy.


Pilit ipamumukha sayo ang karamdaman ng karakter. Pero hindi mo pa rin sya makuhang mahalin.


You want to feel sorry for JM, because his face blindness makes him blind too with the beautiful things around him, such as family, friends, career and love. But as you look closer into his character, you’ll see no deeper reason to appreciate him further.


His process of acceptance, healing and recovery is not shown. His own character is missing.


Who is JM in the first place?

Sino ba sya maliban sa isang taong may sakit?

Anong nakikita ni Rhian Ramos sa kanya?


Bigo silang ipakita ang ganda ng pagmamahalan nila. Sa tuwing may pagkakataon na pwede nilang pag-usapan ang mga mahahalagang bagay, parati nilang puputulin at magsisimula ng panibagong usapan.


Ang mga usapan nila ay napupunta sa wala. Duon ka na nga lang pwedeng kumapit. Pero pati yun ay parati nilang pinagkakait.


Pinagkait nila sa atin na makilala ang isang taong pwede mong mahalin at intindihin. Nawala sila sa kanilang hangarin. Nabulag sila sa sarili nilang sakit.


This movie only presented a sick person in a literal sense, more than a person beyond his sickness.

And that’s how they got lost.
