Storyline

Babae Sa Bintana contemplates the likehood of a world where the city ceases to be a symbol of progress, and becomes a mere showcase of lives ruined by modernity's failures. Suffering severely from depression after being left by his wife, Mitch (Gomez) finds momentary distraction with the woman who just moved into the house infront of his- Jack (Roces). Her beauty is one thing that saves Mitch from hopelessness and desperation, but is also the very thing that unconsciously pushes him into the dangerous and inexplicable underworld of Manila. Their precarious affair turns into perilous conflict, brought about by their descent into the dark, decaying streets of the capital city, where corruption and organized crime prevail.

Wildly Uneven and Ultimately Disappointing
16 May 2006 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

In some ways a creative and highly unusual film based in a Manila slum. The Tagalog dialogue and quirky characters give the film promise. Unfortunately there are enough egregious scenes and acting to make you cringe.

Lots of gratuitous sex and violence punctuate a very thin plot. Without sexy Rosana Roces to highlight unrated DVDs, I bet this movie disappears after release. It might have been better that way. Too many scenes with people yelling and breaking things quickly become grating. The main character is particularly annoying. You almost root for the bad guys when they torture him.
