Refreshing Film!
23 March 2019 | by reynaleighdelosreyesSee all my reviews

Ulan is a refreshing film to watch. It veers away from the narrative of conventional love stories and, at the same time. tries to incorporate rich Filipino culture and beliefs. More than just the constant search for love, it centers on the growth and self-realizations of Maya -distinguishing the thin line between genuine love or merely loving the idea of love. Indeed, it is primarily a coming-of-age story. However, it does not end there. On a deeper level, the film also exemplifies societal realities i.e., unemployment, worsening traffic problem, women's vulnerable disposition in society, climate change, and many more. It shows how, in the greater scheme of things, the characters constantly struggle to reconcile the past and present. Yet, in the end, loss is imminent and inevitable. It is only upon that loss can the character be made whole. The film's experimentation of a nuanced narrative plays with emotions and evokes a sense of admiration for the characters especially Maya. Indeed, it is one of those films that will keep you thinking long and hard.
