    10. To the wonder of Terrence Malick

    One of the most anticipated presence in Venice is that of Terrence Malick and his new job that has a cast that includes Ben Affleck and Javier Bardem. After winning last year's Palme d'Or at Cannes with The Tree of Life, Malick has made To the wonder in record time for what is often their usual frequency. Once again we are presented with a film difficult preciosistas image that may end up splitting the audience dramatically.

Definitely one of the essential.

    8. Aprčs Mai Olivier Assayas

    Aprčs Mai Gilles follow in the footsteps of a Parisian student, in the early 70s, he becomes involved in the tense socio-political climate that characterized the decade. Olivier Assayas returns after the resounding success of the miniseries Carlos seems a convincing portrait of European youth who participated in the tumultuous events that marked the early years of the 70s, after protests took place in France during May 1968 .

    7. Paradies: Ulrich Seidl Glaube

We are aware of this filmmaker who claims to go in search of the boundaries between reality and fiction.

    6. Penance of Kiyoshi Kurosawa

    Miniseries for television will also be presented entirely in San Sebastian, after after passing through Venice. With more than 4 hours, the renowned Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Pulse, Tokyo Sonata) focuses on the mysterious murder of a girl who disappears into his own school in front of their classmates.

    5. Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers

    The controversial and controversial director of Gummo (FIPRESCI Honorable Mention in Venice 97) returns to Lido and is intended to provide one of the most radical films of the Festival. Spring Breakers will be a portrait, true to his unique style of street gangs in the capital of California presenting a suggestive casting with Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine at the head. A highlight for the more daring.

    4. Thy Womb by Brillante Mendoza

    You could say that ultimately a film festival is not a festival without the presence of acclaimed filmmaker Brillante Mendoza Filipino. Captive presented a few months ago in the Berlin Film Festival and now brings us Thy Womb at Venice.

    LUMINOUS LOOK. As good as orgasm, the spiritual arousal conveyed by Ms. Nora Aunor in the apparition scene from "Himala" (Miracle) will be witnessed once again at the 2012 Venice International Film Festival where Aunor's latest film "Sinapupunan" (Thy Womb) has been officially selected for competition. Cited by CNN as the Best Asia-Pacific Film of All Time in 2008, Ishmael Bernal's 1982 masterpiece defines timelessness as the organizers of the world’s oldest filmfest include it in its showcase for digitally restored classics, sharing the spotlight with the rediscovered works of Orson Welles, Ingmar Bergman, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Billy Wilder, Michael Cimino, Joseph Mankiewicz, etc. Long live, world-class Filipino cinema!

    ....speaking of BONA na relevant pa din til now... GO UGE!!!

    The original Bona, Nora Aunor, surprises today's Bona, Eugene Domingo, on the PETA stage

    William Reyes

    Tulad ng naunang plano, sinurpresa ni Nora Aunor ang bidang aktres ng dulang Bona kagabi, September 1, sa PETA Theater Center, New Manila, Quezon City.

    At the last minute, hindi talaga alam ni Uge na kagabi ang surprise appearance ni Ate Guy kaya naging emosyonal ang actress-comedienne sa curtain call.


    Nang tawagin sa stage si Nora ay mahigpit muna silang nagyakapan ni Eugene.

    Napaiyak si Eugene sa sobrang tuwa at halos hindi makapagsalita.

    Nang ma-compose ang sarili, Eugene was her usual self na nagpapatawa, kahit hindi makapagsalita nang tuluy-tuloy.

    "Ay, sana po talaga ma-picture-an niyo kami.

    “Hindi ko talaga... ni sa hinagap, hindi ko akalain na mangyayari ito...

    "Ah, artista po akong... artista, na bata pa lang ay humanga na sa isang katulad mo," sabi ni Uge habang nakaharap kay Guy.

    "At hindi ko inisip na mangyayari ito sa buhay ko. At magkakaroon ako ng pagkakataon, na aliwin ka, at ulitin sa harap mo ang isang napakagandang pagganap."

    To her audience, sabi rin ni Uge, "Mapalad po tayo na pinagbigyan tayo ngayon...dahil alam ko naman na si Ms. Nora Aunor, bilang artista, siyempre iba na ang kanyang iniisip. Pero hindi pa rin siya tumitigil at gumagawa ng pelikula..."

    Matamang nakikinig lang si Ate Guy at nakangiti habang nagsasalita ang komedyana.

    "Alam ko... Thy Womb! Alam ko yan! Gagawin kong stage play ‘yan!" biro pa ni Uge, tungkol sa latest indie film na tampok ang Superstar na nakatakdang magtungong Venice, Italy, para sa lalahukang international filmfest ng pelikula, kasama ang direktor na si Brillante Mendoza.

    VIDEO | ‘Thy Womb’ official trailer looks majestic
    InterAksyon.com · Sunday, September 2, 2012 · 8:47 am

    The official trailer for Brillante Mendoza’s “Sinapupunan” (“Thy Womb”) debuted at the website of the 69th Venice International Film Festival on Saturday. Clocking in at two minutes and 50 seconds, this trailer is different from the one-minute teaser on YouTube.

    For a director known for crushing realism, the trailer suggests that “Sinapupunan” might be Mendoza’s most visually appealing film to date, thanks to the sweeping vistas of the Tawi-Tawi seas and the vibrant colors of Badjao customs and costumes captured by cinematographer Odyssey Flores.

    However, the female narrator’s spiel sounds a bit crude and didactic in Tagalog. It is clearly meant for a local audience.

    “Sinapupunan” stars Nora Aunor as a Badjao midwife who, despite being barren and too old, is determined to give her husband (Bembol Rocco) a child. Also in the cast are Lovi Poe and Mercedes Cabral.

    It has been hailed as a “heartbreaking and devoutly humanist work” by Steve Gravestock, a programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival, where it is headed after its September 6 world premiere in Venice.

    Pag-reject ng MMFF sa ‘Thy Womb’ walang isyu kay Direk Brillante




    Sa Nobyembre 28 nakatakdang ipalabas sa Pilipinas ang Thy Womb.

    Ang Solar Films ang distribution ng Thy Womb at kakausapin ni Direk Brillante ang TV5 at GMA 7 (mother studio ni Lovi) para tulungan sa promotions ang kanilang pelikula.

    “Siyempre, may presscon ang pelikula namin at maraming gustong tumulong sa publicity at pati na rin sa promotions, pero hindi kaya ng film outfit ko ang magbayad sa mga TV station para maipalabas ang trailer ng Thy Womb.

    “Makikiusap kami sa TV5 at GMA 7 na suportahan ang Thy Womb sa promo dahil nasa TV5 si Nora at nasa GMA 7 naman si Lovi.

    “Pagbalik namin mula sa Venice, kakausapin ko ang managers ng mga artista ko na tulungan kami na masabi sa kanilang TV networks na tulungan kami sa pagpo-promote ng pelikula,” dagdag ng premyadong direktor.

    Syanga pala, ipapalabas na bukas sa piling sinehan sa Kamaynilaan ang obra ni Direk Brillante na Captive.

    Tampok dito sina Isabelle Huppert, Ronnie Lazaro, Sid Lucero, Rustica Carpio, Raymond Bagatsing, Angel Aquino, Mon Confiado, Maria Isabel Lopez, Neil Ryan Sese, Kristoffer King, Mercedes Cabral, Madeleine Nicolas at Allan Paule.

    Brillante Mendoza grateful for having worked with acclaimed actresses Nora Aunor in Thy Womb and Isabelle Huppert in Captive

    William R. Reyes
    Tuesday, September 04, 2012 @ 08:45AM

    Aminado si Brillante Mendoza na mahigpit ang labanan ngayong taon para sa Volpi Cup.

    Ang Volpi Cup ay katumbas ng Best Actress award sa kasalukuyang ginaganap na 69th Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica della Biennale di Venezia—o ang Venice International Film Festival—sa Italy.


    Si Brillante ang direktor ni Nora Aunor sa comeback film-starrer ng aktres na Thy Womb (Sinapupunan), na in competition sa nasabing international filmfest.

    Kabilang ang Superstar sa contenders para sa Volpi Cup.



    Nagbukas ang La Biennale di Venezia noong August 29 at matatapos sa September 8.

    Sa huling gabi ng international film event gaganapin ang awards night.

    "Mahigpit ang labanan!" tahasang sabi ni Direk Brillante nang makausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kagabi, September 3, sa red-carpet premiere ng pelikula niyang Captive sa Greenbelt 3, Makati City.

    Ayon sa mga naunang report, kabilang ngayon sa malalakas na contenders sa pagka-best actress sa Venice International Filmfest 2012 ang mga nagbidang aktres na sina:

    Cho Min-soo ng South Korea para sa pelikulang Pieta; Franziska Petri ng Germany para sa Russian film na Betrayal; at Isabelle Huppert ng France para sa Italian film na Dormant Beauty.



    Bukod sa mga nabanggit, nariyan din ang makakalaban nilang mga aktres mula sa Amerika na sina Rachel McAdams at Noomi Rapace, para sa Passion ng France at Belgium (co-production), sa direksiyon ng Hollywood filmmaker na si Brian de Palma;

    Si Hadas Yaron ng Israel para sa Lemale Et Ha'Chalal (Fill The Void) at si Cecille De France ng pelikulang Superstar (a French-Belgian co-production).

    Samantala, nakatakda pa lamang ang apat na screenings ng Thy Womb simula sa Setyembre 6, kaya maaga pa para mapaulat ang lakas o ang hina ng tsansa ni Ate Guy na makamit ang parangal.

    Interesante namang mabatid na makakalaban ni Nora ang artista rin ni Direk Brillante sa Captive na si Isabelle Huppert.

    Eugene Domingo Kids About ‘Retiring’ After Reprising Nora Aunor’s Character
    By MAUREEN MARIE BELMONTE
    September 3, 2012, 4:57pm


    Uge jokes that the next Nora film she'd restage would be the latter’s upcoming indie film ‘Thy Womb’ (Promotional Photo)

    MANILA, Philippines – At this point, the industry would undoubtedly suffer a loss if theater and movie actress Eugene Domingo decides to quit the show business for good.

    Well, it's a good thing the prime actress was just kidding when she quipped about her resignation recently in one of the shows of the theater remake of the '80s film “Bona” where she takes on the titular role.

    An overwhelmed Domingo turned emotional during the show’s curtain call last Sept. 1 when the Superstar Nora Aunor, the original Bona, was called onstage to join her.

    Soon as she had recovered herself, she quickly put her comedienne’s hat back on and quipped, "Ay, sana po talaga ma-picture-an niyo kami.”

    Amazed, speechless and still obviously dazed, Domingo enthused, “Hindi ko talaga... ni sa hinagap, hindi ko akalain na mangyayari ito...”

    To Aunor, she confessed, that, like the millions of Noranians all over the country, she’s long been an avid fan of the highly-acclaimed superstar.

    "At hindi ko inisip na mangyayari ito sa buhay ko. At magkakaroon ako ng pagkakataon, na aliwin ka, at ulitin sa harap mo ang isang napakagandang pagganap," Domingo gushed.

    Domingo thanked Aunor for the latter's unending passion to the craft.

    "Mapalad po tayo na pinagbigyan tayo ngayon...dahil alam ko naman na si Ms. Nora Aunor, bilang artista, siyempre iba na ang kanyang iniisip. Pero hindi pa rin siya tumitigil at gumagawa ng pelikula..." stated the 41-year-old actress.

    Wrapping up her speech, Domingo thanked Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) for the opportunity given to her. She likewise Aunor for being gracious enough to visit them and the other stars who have shown their support with her right from the get-go.

    But of course, no Domingo speech would be complete without a punch line. After her thank you’s, she exclaimed albeit tongue-in-cheek, “Ay, magre-retire na po ako!"

    Stunned Superstar

    Aunor, on her part, didn’t hold back in lauding Domingo. She even flatly declared onstage that “Bona’s” modern reinterpretation was actually “mas maganda” compared to the original, where she took on the titular role.

    "Pero napakagaling po. ‘Yung ginanapan ko sa pelikula, drama, ‘di ba? Mas maganda po ito ngayon," Aunor fondly affirmed.

    Meanwhile, as if to end speculations that she’s upset over the idea of her film being restaged with a completely different vibe, Aunor told Domingo, "Ah, pinaligaya mo kami, lalo na ako.”

    Alluding to how uninhibited the setup is in theater, Aunor continued, "Mahirap yun, ha! Umaarte ka, pagkatapos naririnig mo yung reaction!"

    “Bona” was adapted for stage by Layeta Bucoy and directed by Soxie Topacio. It runs from Aug. 24 up to Sept. 23 at the PETA Theater Center in New Manila, Quezon City.

    "thy womb" is globetrotting. from venice to toronto to busan to dubai --- awesome! 'even heard that this masterpiece might have a stop at the milan filmfest.

    brillante and nora are indeed royalties of world cinema. their respective works of art have toured the festival circuit; both of them have been praised in cannes, berlin and venice.

    hello, clowdette and papi! welcome back to the "grandma of sex scandals," ms. betamaxqueenvi.
