Ganap na Babae (Garden of Eve) (2010)

Directors: Rica Arevalo, Ellen Ramos, Sarah Roxas
Stars: Boots Anson-Roa, Mercedes Cabral, Romalito Mallari

Mercedes Cabral plays a prostitute who bares her soul as a mother. Sue Prado is a devoted sister who prefers to stay in her drought-ridden barrio to take care of the family. Boots Anson-Roa plays a widow who falls in love with a younger man.

Three stories are interwoven to see the plight of Filipino women from the sensitive eyes of three contemporary women directors. Hubo Productions support the different voices of women and aims to expose the complexity of the individual through Ganap na Babae.

★★★★☆

Kung gaano kami ka-disappointed sa napanood namin nung nakaraang araw, ganun naman kami ka-satisfied sa pelikulang napanood namin nung sumunod na araw. Ganap na Babae. Trilogy siya, ang ganda lang, hands down, lalo na yung unang pelikula, yung kay Mercedes Cabral. (Trivia: Nanalo siya ng Cannes’ Most Beautiful Actress.)

Alam mo yung mga kwentong feeling mo predictable pero mindblowing yung twist. At mapapa-wow ka na lang. At ang gagaling ng artista.

Sulit ang paggising ko ng maaga (kahit pa na-late pa rin ako :p). Sana makahanap ako ng physical copy nito sa mga video shops. Nakakabilib lang talaga.
