The discovery leads him on the brink of depression making him think of ways to have him back at all cost. He has invited Jonathan to see him on this day for the last time. And through the frenzy of his preparations prior to meeting Jonathan, we will discover his traits and personality; the 'worlds' he lives in - virtual and real; and, we will witness how he prepares for his most unique shout-out that he will make not only on his Facebook wall, but, in his life.Written by
Busy and noisy critique of how pervasive and unhealthy the web can be.
Rather a depesssing indictment of life by social media, this Filipino film. Sandino Martin is a 15 year old ditched by the love of his life Angelo Llagan at Christmas. He is determined to do all he can to retrieve the situation and the film depicts his futile efforts. We've got everything from religion, family, casual sex and self harming with little hope of redemption for anyone. Conceptually, it would be well worth paying attention to this film but the production is pretty poor; not much budget nor much idea what to do with it either. It does touch on significantly important issues for all parents with children having unfettered and/or unmonitored access to the internet - just not in a particularly engaging way.
