THE WIFE

The Wife (2022)

Directed by: Denise O’Hara


A wife takes care of her dying husband—with the help of her husband’s mistress.


Despite having an overused topic, this movie has some liberating and inspiring views to share.


Each character has flaws and redemption. They have beautiful character arcs. However, only the highlights were shown and not their journey.


Ang haba ng istorya. Ang daming nangyayari sa kanila. Pero hindi nila kayang ikwento lahat. Kaya pinagsisikan nilang lahat.


Yung kwento nila ay pang-teleserye na pwedeng umabot nang isang buwan. Pero pinakita nilang lahat sa isang oras.


Puro bigatin tuloy ang karamihan sa mga eksena kahit wala pang nangyayari.


Every scene feels like the climax already.


Deserving of the titular role, Louise delos Reyes is a reliable actress who can carry a scene—even if you don’t know what’s happening yet.


Naipakita niya ang kanyang pagiging martyr. Ramdam mo ang kanyang inis, pagod at pagtitiis.


Hindi bagay kay Diego Loyzaga ang mag-sakit-sakitan. Hindi siya nakakaawa. At hindi rin siya kapani-paniwala.


Kahit hindi kailangan, pinaghubad na naman si Cara Gonzales. Ngunit pagkatapos maghubad nang dalawang beses, nabigyan siya ng pagkakataon na gampanan ang kanyang karakter.


Cara’s acting needs guidance. But at least, her role here is authentic, and it has bearing.


This is a good start for Vivamax to veer away from its usual pornstar formula, focusing on the story and not on the body. But the direction in this movie falters.


It fails to tell the journey of the characters, providing only shortcuts and bits of everything.


Instead of knowing The Wife and the people around her… what we get is a playlist of emotional scenes featuring The Wife.
