to celebrate mother’s day, my mum and I went to the mall to watch “ploning”, an independently produced 35mm film starring judy ann santos and directed by her BFF dante “nico” garcia. I expected it to be a good film, almost indie-ish. but I was in for a surprise – it wasn’t just good… the storyline was brillliant.  too bad star cinema decided to support the movie “when love begins” rather than this one. boo-hoo.

I haven’t watched as good a tagalog movie since “hihintayin kita sa langit” (an adaptation of wuthering heights) and “muro-ami”. I highly recommend that you go watch this film before its marquee lights are put off.

me and a friend ascending from the escalator of a mall way before ploning’s playdate:

my friend: “uy, ano basa diyan? ” pointing to the poster. 

me: “cloning.” without batting an eyelash/ medyo naka-ismid pa nga.

my friend: “ows? eh bakit si judy ann santos ang starring? sci-fi ba ito?”

me: taking a second look at the poster: “ay, hinde! ploning ngapala iyan!”

ayus! 😀
