The world should see this movie!
29 December 2018 | by filmreviewphSee all my reviews

A film must connect to the viewers and the audience should be able to relate to the story and characters and those are the signs of a good film.

The issue of a Senior Citizen coming out and opening up to his family on his long standing love for a childhood male friend may be a new and interesting theme but Rainbow Sunset has gone beyond the issue of LGBT.

Rainbow Sunset is a Family film that connects to all of us, to every family regardless of your economic standing. It is about the double standards of our society; RAINBOW SUNSET IS a well written screenplay, very grounded, direct and natural lines and dialogues. Direction is very fine, no fancy shots, focusing on the objective and intention of the scene that resulted to a great storytelling. Most of the sequences were shot in a lock frame that gives the audience a clearer understanding of the message in almost all of the scenes.

Rainbow Sunset brings the audience to a natural flow of emotion. There are some light moments and there are many dramatic points. Rainbow Sunset makes the audience cry. But the drama and the tears you shed are not redundant, it escalates and builds up without the feeling of contracting chest or heart attack. it seeds down to he core of your heart towards the end.

Lead cast Eddie Garcia, Tony Mabesa, Gloria Romero with Tirso Cruz III, Aiko Melendez and Sunshine Dizon is indeed a casting coup!

Acting was superb! No overacting and I would say everyone has attained the "being" state of the characters.

After all the dramas, the most important take away is the importance of family. The family is basic core of our society and it is the fundamental support system for each of us. No matter how huge or heavy your burdens are, your FAMILY is there to support and help you.

PLEASE WATCH RAINBOW SUNSET! You will get your money's worth!
