A man and a woman play ten different characters in ten scenes, all of which take place in a car traveling along the North Diversion Road. Together, they go on a journey to self-discovery, summing up everything we know about love and redemption.
This is one of the best Filipino films that I have ever seen.
This film is an adaptation of a play by Tony Perez, "Sa North Diversion Road". This play is included in the "Tatlong Paglalakbay Trilogy"--the other two plays are "Bombita" and "Biyaheng Timog". Originally, the play "Sa North Diversion Road" is a story of ten different couples who are fighting about infidelity while driving along the North Diversion Road (now called the North Luzon Express Way). In the film, Dennis Marasigan inserted some flashbacks which were not included in the original play. It was good that the director thought of adding those scenes because it aided in understanding the film and made the storytelling more visually inclined. Also, the ten different couples in the play were portrayed brilliantly by only two actors in the film, Irma Adlawan and John Arcilla. The acting of these two actors was really convincing to make the audience think that each couple that they portrayed were really different people.
This is one of the best Filipino films that I have ever seen. I highly recommend everyone to watch this movie.
