NELIA

Nelia (MMFF 2021)

Directed by: Lester Dimaranan


Si Nelia ay isang nurse na sumasagip ng buhay.

Pero lahat ng pasyente niya ay namamatay.


Mapapa-isip ka kung bakit ganun.

Lilituhin ka nila. Guguluhin ka nila.


Maglalagay sila ng maraming detalye para pagdudahan mo. Paulit-ulit nila itong ginawa hanggang sa pinaka-huling eksena. Magsasawa ka sa mga paandar nila.


Paikot-ikot na lang ang mga nangyayari.

Sinasadya nilang pahabain ang pelikula.


Putting plot twists over plot twists

has become their pastime.


It’s keeping you guessing. You are entertained for some time. But when the answers are laid down, the logic behind it seems futile.


Hindi makatotohanan

ang mga sikretong ibinunyag.


Hindi rin kaaya-aya ang

kabuuhang anyo ng pelikula.


Basta-basta ang mga shots. Kulang sa linis. Pabida ang sounds. Kahit wala pang nangyayari, may tunog ka nang maririnig.


The film’s technical aspects are downgraded. The storyline needs polishing. The asset of this film lies within Nelia herself, because of the mystery she carries throughout the film.


Because you want to know more about her,

You will stand by Nelia till the end.


NELIA
