Nyff 2012: ‘Bwakaw’ is a movie full of quiet surprises

8 October 2012 2:49 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written by Jun Robles Lana

Directed by Jun Robles Lana

Bwakaw is a movie full of quiet surprises, and the great pleasure of watching it results from the matter-of-fact way the script leisurely unfurls its secrets and piles layer upon layer on what initially appears to be an uncomplicated story. At first glance, Rene (Eddie Garcia) seems like your standard grumpy old man bitter about how life has treated him, but then comes the somewhat unexpected revelation that Rene is gay and his grumpiness isn’t just part of his personality but it stems from a lifetime of denial and deferred happiness considering he only came to terms with his sexuality very late in life.

Now in his seventies, Rene has stopped putting off happiness and has just given up on it. He focuses all his energy on performing a job he’s already retired from and preparing for his eventual demise. »
