"Ded Na Si Lolo" Movie Review -- the Oscars Best Foreign Film Entry of the Philippines!

5 December 2009 5:32 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

"Ded Na Si Lolo" ("Grandpa is Dead") is the entry of the Philippines to the 82nd Annual Academy Awards for the Best Foreign Film category. The dramedy is written and directed by Soxy Topacio starring Gina Alajar, Elizabeth Oropesa, Dick Israel, Roderick Paulate, Perla Bautista, and Manilyn Reynes.

I'm proud of this movie! It blends comedy and drama well to tell the story of a death in a family told through the eyes of a child, Bobet (Bj Forbes). When his grandpa dies, Bobet learns our steep superstitious beliefs involving death.

Good luck to Topacio and company, I hope the Academy chooses this film, but for now, take a look at my movie review of "Ded Na Si Lolo" as seen on Balitang America in The Filipino Channel.
