Well written, unique story of OFW
5 October 2013 | by Sirfaro11See all my reviews

Glad to have caught this running in local cinema, the Philippines' submission to Oscar this year holds promise to get at least a nomination, unlike previous contenders. This tells the story of a Filipino family's trials and tribulations in a foreign country, Israel.

The movie tells the story in five different views, some scenes keep repeating but I feel some scenes could be trimmed down. For example, when the two siblings came home from city rollicking , there was really no significant addition in Joshua's story. The story of Mercedes Cabral also felt out of place, other than to emphasize Medina's selfishness.

Overall, this is a well written, well directed by first time lady director Espia. The story is unique and provides a tender drama that OFWs go through. I am glad that the OFW here is not portrayed as maltreated by an employer, but instead show the innocence of a child caught between political and social issues.
