Ten Little Mistresses (2023)

Directed by: Jun Robles Lana

This movie is so good.

It’s a crime not to watch it on Prime.

Bugbog-sarado ka sa mga punchlines. Hindi ka pa nakaka-move-on sa sinasabi nung isa. May panibago na namang babanat. Pang-multiverse ang linyahan ng mga kerida.

Walang tigil ang mga pasabog. Andaming nangyayaring hindi mo inaasahan. Sangkaterbang plottwist na literal na magpapa-ikot at magpapa-hilo sa iyo.

Siksik sa mga bonggang kasuotan. Lahat sila ay pwede nang sumali sa beauty pageant, dahil sa pagrampa nila ng mga long gown, swimsuit, formal attire, at costumes with matching headdresses. May bonus pang funeral outfits.

Ang bawat minuto ay buhay na buhay.

Walang patay na oras.

Si Valentin lang ang patay.

Direk Jun Robles Lana brought Pinoy Camp to a whole new level—adding fashion, drama, mystery and crime into comedy. This is campier than camp. More twisted than your usual plottwists. Lots of plotholes and still it’s making sense.

The killer guessing game could’ve been more thrilling if motives and evidences are present in all the characters. Them being “mistresses” and the variations of their love are also not tackled. The color grading should’ve been more vibrant to further exude the beauty of each dress. Not having enough screen time, this movie needs a prequel to show how they’ve all met, and a sequel to show the woman’s world without men.

The casts make the most out of their characters. The ensemble marks the most fabulous constellation of stars we can witness today.

Carmi Martin is like the Jennifer Coolidge of the Philippines, serving us with the demeanor and looks of a queen. Agot Isidro holds the title of being the most sophisticated. Kris Bernal’s banters are a breath of fresh air.

The Korean accent of Sharlene San Pedro is unexpectedly funny. Adrianna So is consistently lively just because she can. Iana Bernardez’ contrast in delivering woke lines in the most passive way is amusing. Christian Bables has all the Gs — gigil, galit and glamour.

Ang mga banat ni Pokwang, hindi mo alam kung kasama ba sa script o bigla na lang niyang sinasabi kasi ang natural. Mukha talagang mahilig makipag-catfight si Kate Alejandrino rito. Si Arci Muñoz ang manghuhula na hindi mo papaniwalaan, pero makikinig ka pa rin sa sasabihin nito kasi nakakaaliw.

Eugene Domingo is undoubtedly the master of purposeful camp. Having a powerful presence, John Arcilla perfectly fits the role. Donna Cariaga has the potential to be the next big comedy star.

Lahat sila may kontribusyon sa pagpapatawa.

Lahat sila may ambag sa eksena.

Lahat sila ay magaganda at kabogera.

Bilang mga kerida, sila ay nagsasapawan.

Bilang mga artista, sila ay nagbibigayan.

They’re not Ten Little Mistresses anymore.

But rather One Big Sisterhood

embracing Womanhood.



p.s. One of the best Pinoy original movies that we can watch online. Don’t let it go all to waste. Let’s stream it legally via Prime Video PH.
