PAGLIPAY (Zig Dulay, 2016)


One of the best-looking films filled with screencap-worthy scenes. I never had problems with drone shots and they were effectively utilized here.

Inasmuch as I loved the terrific Anna Luna (and the traditional vs modern romance theme), I was more fascinated with the other aspects of the Aeta life. Hearing one character describe an 8-10 hour walk from town to town was enough to break my heart.

I really wish it had less hugots and more insights.

Rating: ★★★☆☆
