A stark glimpse into the life of a family
I just watched this on Popcorn films and really “enjoyed” it. I put that in quotes because it’s kind of a gripping drama, it’s not a nice sweet feel-good. But it’s also not sappy and over-the-top, doesn’t feel deliberate or pushed at all. It reads almost like a documentary (as another reviewer said), with its candid acting and “unsteadicam” cinematography. This role won Best Actress at Cannes 2016 for Jaclyn Jose, in the leading role here.
Spoiler alert on the blog; it doesn’t give it all away, but anyway, knowing what the story is about doesn’t really spoil it. You need to see it happen.
The naturally unfolding pace of the film is frustrating to some (another review), but it’s really just a slice-of-life capture, that unfolds in its own time. I liked it enough that I’m looking for other films by the director and some of the cast.
Slow-paved and ultimately a generic experience…
This movie definitely had potential to be entertaining, but director Brillante Mendoza unfortunately let the movie slip into mediocrity.
It ultimately felt like you had been sitting in front of the movie for a week by the time the movie actually ended. And that was because of the storyline and the script. It quite simply took forever to almost go through no progress in the storyline on the screen. It was quite a testing ordeal to sit through, to be brutally honest.
There were some nice performances throughout the movie, and Jaclyn Jose really carried the movie quite nicely with her performance.
However, there were just way too much fillers and pointless stuff being shown and filmed that made it seem like a very prolonged experience. I am somewhat familiar with the corruption that permeates the government and also police system in The Philippines, so the movie does paint a fairly adequate image of that. Now, I can’t claim to be familiar with the drug trade in the local barangays in The Philippines, so that aspect of the movie is not one that I can comment on.
“Ma’ Rosa” is definitely not a defining moment in Tagalog cinema. But it was interesting enough to see a movie that was not the usual romantic comedy genre that Tagalog cinema is drowning in.
