Cherry Pie Picache,
A digital feature has five episodes that all deal with wild gay fantasies involving men in uniform. It starts with "Biyahe," about a jilted taxi driver and his jealous passenger who find comfort in each other's lovesick arms. The second episode is "Linya," about a lonely homeowner whose phone conks out. Two handsome repairmen arrive and they end up engaging in a dizzying threesome. Next is "Laro," about four basketball players who are taking a shower in the locker room after an intense game, and a shy guy who takes a peek at them and later joins in the fun. "Bilis" is about a hunky delivery boy in a hurry who delivers pizza to a bored yuppie who is working overtime in his office. They get instantly attracted upon seeing each other. The last episode is "Bantay," about a horny security guard in the graveyard shift. He sees two lovers fighting. Rhyme dumps Jon and Jon finds solace in the arms of the easy going guard. Written by
This film is about 5 different men's sexual fantasies regarding other men in uniforms.
"Pantasya" is really not as interesting as it seems to be. Though the hand-held digital camera was held quite steadily (unlike Cloverfield), the lighting and choice of camera angle were bad. The subjects are often filmed against the bright light source such as windows. The result is that we can't see what the guys are doing. All we see are patches of darkness moving about. For a visual film like Pantasya, this cannot be good.
The narration is good though. They are thoughtful and thought provoking. If it wasn't for the narration, this film would have been a complete bore.
