Manny Pacquiao bigo kay Gov. Vilma Santos
by Walang Kiyeme /Peter S. Ledesma Mar 4, 2012
SUPPOSEDLY, last Saturday ay special guest sana si Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos sa game show ni boxing champ Manny Pacquiao na Manny Many Prizes sa GMA7. Kaso mo, nataon naman na katapat na katapat pala ng Kapamilya Deal or No Deal ng binata ni Gov. Vi na si Luis Manzano ang show ni Cong. Manny. Siyempre for delicadeza naman, isang linggo bago ang kanyang guesting ay nagpasabi na si Ate Vi sa production people ng Manny Many Pries na hindi na siya matutuloy rito.
Pero kung hindi talaga masasagasaan ang show ni Luis ay talagang gustung-gusto nitong mag-guest kay Manny. Alam niya kasi ni Ate Vi na maraming natutulungan ang programang ito ng nasabing kongresista kaya nakikiisa siya rito. At sa tinagal-tagal na panahong pamamalagi ng Star for All Season sa industriya ng showbiz, kaya siya minahal ng mga tao rito ay dahil isa siyang propesyonal na artista and public servant.
At mukhang this year kung matutuloy ang plano ng Star Cinema bilang bahagi ng pagdiriwang ng golden anniversary ni Ate Vi sa showbiz, may balitang aside sa movie nila ni Kim Chiu na The Healing, pagsasamahin ang sikat na actress politician at Aiai de las Alas ng Star Cinema para sa Metro Manila Film Festival 2012.
Aba! Kapag natuloy ang movie nilang ito ng komedyana ay sure na sure na ang pagtabo nito sa takilya. Congrats nga pala kay Luis at buong staff ng Deal or No Deal dahil waging-wagi sa rating ang pilot episode nila. Ayon pa sa datos ng Kantar Media, pumalo ang show sa national average TV rating na 21.7% kontra sa kalabang Manny Many Prizes na 10% lang. Cheers to dat gyud!

BROKEN MARRIAGE comes as a second wave to the noisy ripple created by Vilma Santos’s award-winning performance in Relasyon. The Regal people have banged their bongos so much harder this time that viewers will expect that Ms. Santos’ cards for this year’s awards derby will be more than secure. The hint is that Broken Marriage is a Vilma Santos movie. Lest the moviegoer expect too much from this year’s quadruple winning best actress, he should be forewarned that the movie is about, well, a broken marriage.
Vilma Santos is not about to be a letdown, not this time when the most important female roles are coming her way. A new intelligence she infuses in the character Ellen. Like De Leon, she turns Ellen into a woman-child, but the stress is less on her part as she has done similar roles before. Her beautiful face is flush receptive: the quiet moments of just observing the people around her are moments of perfect acting. Her body moves with an agility that is both funny and dramatic. Her two monologues - the first with her friends in the cafe when she informs them that she is bored, and the second with Rene when she tells him that they are not children anymore - are her best scenes: the camera lingers upon her countenance and she enunciates in return with ironic ease. She should watch out for next year’s awards race - there is simply no stopping her at the moment.

Broken Marriage pa rin...
Paano malalampasan ng Broken Marriage ang Relasyon? Kung pagbabasehan ang intensiyon ng direktor, higit itong nakaaangat sa Relasyon. Mula simula hanggang sa pagtatapos nito, hindi lumihis ang Broken Marriage sa mensaheng nais nitong ipahatid. Mahusay ang pagsasalarawan ni Ishmael Bernal sa domestikong suliranin ng mag-asawa bagama't sumasang-ayon sa patriyarkal na gahum habang pinagbibigyan nito ang di inaasahang pagkamulat ng lalaking protagonista ay nagpakita ding ganap sa semiotikong detalye ng kompleksidad ng resolusyon sa pansariling loob. Ang sensitibong paglikha ni Vilma Santos kay Ellen ay isang marubdob at personal na layon kung ihahambing sa kanyang pagsasakarakter ng papel ni Marilou bilang kerida sa Relasyon. Hinamon ni Ellen ang kumbensiyonal na depinisyon ng pagiging asawa at pagkaina sa paghahanap ng mga alternatibo sa gitna ng makainang pagpapalaki sa mga anak. Ginawan niya si Ellen ng sariling silid kung saan nakahanap ito ng solitaryong kanlungan nang hindi pinuputol ang pakikipag-ugnayan sa asawa. Iniugnay ni Ellen ang ang kanyang pribadong hapdi sa spectrum ng kanyang relasyon. Samantala, nakatutok ang tunggalian sa Broken Marriage hindi lamang kay Vilma Santos kundi kay Christopher de Leon. Nasa asawang lalaki ang bulto ng suliranin kaya sa kanya umiikot ang kuwento, ang relasyon ni Rene kay Ellen at ang relasyon ni Rene sa kanyang mga anak. Ang maalam na pagpasok ni de Leon sa katauhan ni Rene ang lumiligalig sa mga kontradiksiyong talamak sa sistemang patriarkal. Kaakibat ng Broken Marriage ang manipestasyon ni Bernal sa pagbibigay ng representasyon sa reyalidad at partikular na pagsasaayos ng iba't-ibang elementong kaagapay sa masining na pagbuo ng pelikula.

In critical acclaim and commercial grade, Lualhati Bautista’s “Dekada ‘70” is the most significant Filipino novel in the 1980’s. That’s just about saying it is also the most difficult to adapt to other versions, notably film. Chito Rono and Star Cinema have taken on that challenge and the result is what to many estimates is the best movie of the 2002 Metro Manila Film festival, not withstanding the vastly different estimation of the jurors.
“Dekada ‘70” is difficult to adapt partly because as a best-selling novel, it is like a film that has already been made in the minds of its many readers. But a bigger difficulty it poses to adapters is its socialrealism since it is basically a chronicle of the Marcos era. Its time-bound character makes it difficult to transcribe on screen in as much as a logistical gulf divides the original material from its realization in another medium.
Pascual plays, along with Vilma Santos as Amanda, one of the centers of gravity of the movie; the other center consists of Santos and Christopher de Leon. As arguably the first unabashedly feminist Filipino novel, “Dekada” shows a woman’s awakening to her nature and gender through the men of her life-her husband and her first born. Their age, generation and preoccupation divide both men, and Amanda serves as their bridge and transition. In the process, Amanda herself is transformed. She becomes herself.
The most moving scenes of the movie are of Jules and Amanda meeting on the sly and forced to carry on mother-and-son endearments hurriedly because of the threat of arrest. But the most poignant scene is Julian and Amanda confronted with the terrible loneliness of their advanced years, left by their children, he turning away from her to hide his tears, and she asking him to face her and not to be ashamed. It helps that the scene is played by Santos and De Leon, truly one of Filipino cinema’s most effective screen couples.
As Amanda, Vilma Santos shows again why Brocka, before he died, had likened her to water. “She can register anything,” he said. In “Dekada”, its the same Santos of vigor and transparency. The only difference is the depth, the resonance, and the greater confidence. Can she ever go wrong? - Dekada ‘70 makes the creative leap of faith by Lito B. Zulueta, Philippine Daily Inquirer, 30 December 2002
