TAHAN

Tahan (2022)

Directed by: Bobby Bonifacio, Jr.


A mother and daughter relationship

is getting tainted with sex and violence.


Both two actresses are impressive.


Jaclyn Jose never fails to give a solid performance; restrained yet striking. Cloe Barreto surprises us with her acting range; from drama to thriller.


Naging maganda ang pelikula

dahil sa tambalan nilang dalawa.


Sa tuwing magsasalita si Jaclyn Jose,

mas lalo siyang nagiging nakakatakot.

Sa tuwing iiyak si Cloe Barreto,

mas lalo siyang nagiging nakakaawa.


Sa tuwing umuusad ang eksena,

mas lalo itong nagiging madugo.


Kulang ang rason kung bakit isang araw ay umabot na lang sa patayan at saksakan ang lahat. Ang mga kaibigan ay parang hindi kaibigan dahil hindi nila alam ang nangyayari. Hindi rin nagamit ang karakter ni JC Santos para mas patibayin ang kwento.


The ending summarizes everything through a revelation scene that’s quite long and repetitive. In hindsight, it was satisfying to learn how effective the lead actresses in prolonging the story for an hour without you knowing it.


The cinematography is decent, matching the suspenseful tone of the movie. The audio dubbing is flawed; sometimes not in sync with the actors’ actions and lip movements.


While the movie has nudity and sex, blood and violence took over. The Director utilized the thrilling part of the story, maximizing the mother-daughter relationship well.


Sa tindi ng samahan ng anak at ng ina,

mapapasabi ka ring Tahan na.
