Storyline

During the global recession, Dale, an American sales coach comes to Manila to teach the staff at a call center how to sell up. He mentions that he's learned these survival techniques from his career in sales and from acting in Hollywood. Rosa, a star-struck employee, goes on line, looks Paul up, and finds that he was in a movie with Brendan Fraser. She volunteers to show him around and texts a couple of girlfriends to join them for the afternoon and maybe the night. By accident or on purpose, messages are garbled and some people may think he's Brendan Fraser. What's next? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Probably not for animal lovers...
9 May 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

While the film isn't really explicit, viewers should be forewarned that there is a brief cockfighting scene in the film. You don't see blood but a chicken is killed and some may want to avoid the short because of this. However, I understand why they showed the brief cockfighting scene--to heighten the foreignness of the culture and the clash of values in the film.

"Teleglobal Dreamin'" begins in a Filipino call center. A boss from the United States arrives for a visit and one of the ladies is chosen to show him around the town. For the most part, it's obvious that the guy is uncomfortable and many of the sites are a bit lame. However, it is pretty funny when his guide tells people she knows that the boss is a movie star--and was in "The Mummy" with Brandon Frasier. Later, this little lie morphs into a huge one--with very unexpected results.

Overall, this film left me a bit cold. I liked how the culture clash was used, but the very end just seemed amazingly downbeat and unappealing. Still, for a young film maker, this is a nice effort and I'd like to see some films about the Philippines or misunderstandings or whatever...
