Man's best friend.
12 November 2013 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Bwakaw (2012) is a movie from the Philippines, written and directed by Jun Lana. Rene, played by Eddie Garcia, is a misanthropic older gay man. Rene lives in a semi-rural area, not too far from a larger city. He has no real friends, because he repulses people who try to engage him in friendship. Eddie's great love in life is his little dog, Bwakaw, played by Princess.

There are two threads to the plot--a serious illness suffered by Bwakaw, and a developing friendship between Rene and a younger man. The movie is worth watching to see how these plot lines develop.

We saw the film at the Little Theatre as part of Image Out--The Rochester LGBT Film Festival. It will work well on the small screen.
