Bwakaw (An Independent Film): From a Commoner's View
Bwakaw embarks upon the life's journey of Mang Rene, a cranky old homosexual man. I've seen other gay movies but this is so far the most natural, every-day-scene, or could-be-my-neighbor kind of setting. The delivery of lines are so natural that it didn't feel scripted at all. But of course! This was a powerhouse cast! Led by none other than one of the greatest actors that has ever graced the Philippine Cinema Mr. Eddie Garcia himself! Add to that another classical icon in the industry Ms. Armida Siguion-Reyna. Now, who could possibly top these two actors who are, to quote a line from the movie, "older than the Philippine Constitution??? And I mean that in the most positive way, that their length and quality of service to the Philippine movie industry is already immeasurable. So, it is only right for us to give honor.
Other good actors who graced this film are: Gardo Versoza, Soxie Topacio, Alan Paule, Luz Valdez, Rez Cortez, Beverly Salviejo, Jonathan Neri, May-I Fabros, Soliman Cruz, Roni Bertubin, and Joey Paras. I will not detail who played who, so as not to preempt other would-be watchers of this movie. Go figure that out yourself! ;) Or just go to their Facebook Fanpage. Actually, I'm just too lazy to write it down because it would just be a waste of time and space when you can find it in their Fanpage already. Am I right?
