#TheChanters: #QCinema2017 #TheKneeJerkCritic Movie Review

TKJC: #Nakakabilib sina Jally Nae Gilbaliga at Romulo Caballero bilang maglolo. Hunggaling, parang may blood ties talaga sila. At ang bitaw ng mga linya, natural na natural. Paano nila nahahanap ang mga regional actors na ito? Effortless yet effective.

Napull-off ni Jally Nae yung pagka-millennial na obsessed sa pop culture pero hindi nakakairita. Si lolo Romulo naman, hungganda ng boses pag nagchachant. Dinig at ramdam mo yung authenticity.  And when he delivers his lines, may sense of mischief. Hindi niya inover-do yung pag-uulyanin part, he just… was.

 Kudos kay Director James Robin M. Mayo and writers Andrian Legaspi and John Bedia for crafting a light-hearted movie pero may cultural impact. They created a film that delivers a message yet still prioritizing the humanity of the characters.
