10 May 2017 | by tsimshotsuiSee all my reviews

it is very hard to make a film about the topics that Director Lawrence Fajardo chose and do it right, but Imbisibol certainly accomplishes that. The film about undocumented Filipinos in Japan never demonizes them and understands their necessities, which is a treatment that makes the film for me. Exploring the 4 different characters with very varied situations that intersect every once in a while was such a pleasure. The scene compositions were perfect for the subject matter, the tone of the film is great in that it never becomes too melodramatic, and the director certainly knows that Ces Quesada is one of the best actors in his film and takes advantage of that. My only negative point is that I think it is necessary to leave a sparkle of hope for films like these and times likes these.
