The origin of this post is my newly-minted at recently-claimed ninong, Joel David idea. Gawa raw ako ng omnibus MMFF2016 post where you guys can find all the reviews, so here it is. 🙂
Humarap si Irma sa camera na puno ng emosyon pero walang luha, parang gumamit ng Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, no more tears! Lumitanya siya nang mahaba, ramdam mo sa bawat kataga yung kontroladong galit niya na biblical in proportion. Righteaous anger meyn, righteous anger! Parang Jesus na nangwarla at the temple lang.
Oro may have lost La Aunor due some differences pero it gained something else with Adlawan. If Ate Guy have stayed sa movie and did what the script asked, it would have been another Aunor moment, nothing more. But with Irma, Oro became an ensemble piece, walang bida, tulong-tulong lahat to present a believable slice of life…however bitter it may be.
