Much better than anticipated...
11 May 2014 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

It was a nice change of scenery to actually see a Tagalog movie that wasn't a romantic comedy for once. And "One More Try" does prove that the Philippine cinema can manage other genres than romantic comedies.

The story told in "One More Try" is about Grace (played by Angel Locsin) whose son Botchok is very ill and desperately needs a bone narrow transplant. Grace seeks out Edward (played by Dingdong Dantes) whom she had Botchok with, but given the situation Edward is not knowing of the fact that he has a son. This puts a strain on the marriage between Edward and Jacqueline (played by Angelica Panganiban).

Actually there are more layers to the story that this, but that is essentially the main storyline. And I will say that it was an interesting storyline that was nicely executed on the screen, so thumbs up to director Ruel S. Bayani for managing to piece together this movie.

And the movie would be nothing without talented actors and actresses, and the people hired for the roles in this movie were doing great jobs in portraying the characters and situations. And there is a very genuine and believable vibe to the entire movie.

The dialog was good and well scripted, helping the movie along quite nicely. Personally I don't understand the constant switching between Tagalog and English, but that is how most people speak in the Philippines.

"One More Try" is an entertaining movie and a movie with a good sense of realism, and it is well worth watching and a well deserved step away from the usual romantic comedies that are spewed out from the Philippines.
