Very Very Weird
23 August 2015 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This movie is weird yet original.

A childless couple makes a baby but results a fish that makes them instant celebrities. Both try to cooperate on what people say a modern-day miracle. Lina and Miguel, the couple in the story have different attitudes because of their son, a fish. It's been the talk of the city yet Miguel is humiliated because of this. Lina is optimistic as to her it's what God gave while Miguel is angry as to him it's God's mistake.

It's pretty absurd but I like the performances/emotions and that's all what I really like about this film. It's unpredictable well maybe not that unpredictable as I actually expected the ending to be like that. I keep looking at myself as the movie comes to an end because the only thing that's in my mind is the plot.
