Decent Psychological Drama
18 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is about a young just married couple ho settle into his home in a remote area of the Phillipines. There is no electricity and no cell phone signal even. The wife, Tess (pretty good job by Diana Zuburi) has to deal with her husband being a traveling salesman. The husband, Rico (Polo Ravales) has to away for three days, leaving her with the elderly caretaker. Through this time, Tess begins to suspect Rico is not faithful. She meets Celia (Francine Prieto) and she comes to live with her, especially since Rico is gone longer than three days since there was a storm. When Rico returns, Tess suspects he and Celia are having an affair and plots revenge. The film isn't bad, it keeps your interest, but it moves slowly to the conclusion. There are a few decent twists, and I recommend it to anyone who likes these kinds of dramas, but I don't think its terribly special. Diana Zuburi has the potential to be a star, maybe even cross over beyond Phillipine cinema. It'll be interesting to see where her career takes her.
