Not a comedic film. Cheers to Chito Roño's masterpiece
5 January 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

It is a terrific film. Kris Aquino delivered a convincing role of Joy, a Filipino mother and wife, living in superstition and luck for the betterment of their life. She acted like the Filipino mothers seen in the country. Also, other actors made an applauding performance. On the movie itself, as a Filipino with a culture on believing superstitions and depending luck on ancient Chinese practices, this Filipino movie has truly delivered the nature of the character's belief and at the same time the amazing plot, as thought by the writer. The light and sound effects had greatly contributed to the movie. There is no need for special effects or computer enhancement to convince. The objectives/intention of the director is clearly seen in the movie. I hope the international community will be able to appreciate & be able to compete with the international-released horror/thriller movies.
