“gemini”: what you don’t see won’t hurt you…

gemini

 

Habang naniniwala ka sa nakikita mo, sa kuwento mo, walang puwedeng magsabi sa iyong hindi ito totoo… Simulan natin sa pangalan mo (While you still believe in what you see, in your own story, no one has the right to tell you that it isn’t true… Let’s start with your name).”

 

In SCIENCE:

The mind creates, it takes you to journeys, in life’s many labyrinths and puzzles… Sometimes, once you took those journeys, you’ll never gonna come back again. And very seldom, you can manage to cope those mind’s journeys and go back all over again.

In LOVE and FANTASY:

Only a soul or a human being with a great and powerful love can save you from the bondage of your own “phantoms”. There’s a hand reaching out on you, a love as powerful God’s grace and sacrifice, that will awaken you and cuddle you with coldness and with warmth.

It could be a FANTASY recreated by human beings. It could be a work of certain imaginations… but only then, you would be FREE.

Science, Love, Fantasy. All combined in one very delicate and intellectual film, that only a few could analyze and comprehend- just like the DUALITY that existed in the film Gemini.

Once more, the indie film industry has mastered its freedom away from commercialism. It went further beyond the horizons, traveled in and out of a mind set- and fulfilled an artistic work of ART.

Director Ato Bautista surely got there. The flow and the rhythm of the movie Gemini could be more appreciated when you close your eyes because you could feel its heart beating and pulsing, even if you’re gone and dead. To achieve this was such a monumental task- because you could feel the beauty of the film Gemini even if you didn’t see anything, even if you were blind- because what you didn’t see won’t ever hurt you.

Sometimes, the movie just stood still (as in “still life”), but even when it stood still- it journeyed far beyond your wildest imaginations.

But you would want to open your eyes again to see how the lead actor of this film- in person of Mon Confiado- acted-out with great subtlety, power and compassion. His speaking lines in the film were all too perfect, and very challenging to deliver. And only an actor like Mon could do justice on those very meaningful lines.

A very underrated actor, that is, Mon, was the one who brought life into this film. Despite the director’s very artistic rhythm and flow and the cinematographer’s graphic but beautiful “eyes” (for the camera)- someone had to stay to make it all ALIVE. And, only the ACTOR, could very well do that.

Surprisingly, the scriptwriter of this film was only just a KID. With the name of Shugo Praico. How could he ever travel so much in terms of psyche, love and conflicting feelings and versions of a marvel-like life by one set of twins- whether conjoined or not- was indeed a fantastic mission and assignment. But he delivered.

The ending of the film’s story was a mixture of science winning over love, but if you’d analyze it all over again, it was love who prepared the WAY to make Science win.

The other half twin was gone in the mind of the more natural twin-mate, but the more that the other half twin EXISTED … and lived. Yet, in the film, it was presented only in a VERY PHYSICAL WAY. Just analyze further, you’d know.

AND THE OLD TELEPHONE MACHINE RANG.

Someone would be calling again… but you’d never see who’s on the other line.

Because-

it was meant to be that way…

as the truth suffers, the eyes lingers on.

 

“GEMINI: WHAT YOU DON’T SEE WON’T HURT YOU”

“GEMINI”, 5 STARS *****!

GEMINI3 GEMINI4 GEMINI5

(from robert manuguid silverio’s facebook status, reprinted below):

A MILESTONE! Mon Confiado’s superb and very subtle acting performance in the movie Gemini is comparable to the acting styles of Hollywood actors like Nicholas Cage, Robert de Niro and Benicio del Toro (actors who can do character roles and lead roles at the same time, with much intensity and clarity)… Napaka-low key lang kasi ni Mon dito movie industry natin, lagi siyang nano-nominate sa mga acting awards pero bakit tila mailap yata ang acting trophy sa kanya? Ang dating tuloy niya ay tila Richard Burton sa Hollywood na more than 9 times na-nominate as best actor sa oscar awards, but never nanalo? Kainis. Watch another splendid performance of Mon sa “Gemini” movie niya na entry sa darating na MMFF sa New Wave category. It’s the kind of acting I have hungered for in years!!!… P.S.: Kudos to direk Ato Bautista for his very artistic kind of direction and story, Shugo Praico for a superb script and Rain Yamson II for his majestic cinematography… In this film, ibang Lance Raymundo na naman ang nakita ko, a total change of look and acting style, while the Mcbride twins- Brigitte McBride & Sheena McBride Bonus were good, too, as new actresses, nakuha nila ang “soul” ng characters nila. Maski walang dialogue o speaking words si Don Gordon Bell sa movie, ang lakas ng dating niya onscreen. While ang actor na si Alvin Lorenz Anson naman, kay lakas ng sex appeal sa film na ito!…Congrats to all the people involved in this film!

“I DIDITH SHOW” …. “EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER” …. “GIRL ME” …. AND “ABATOIR”….

Ito ang apat na dulang “one-act-plays” na nasaksihan ng isang blogger kamakailan lamang sa isa sa kanilang mga naging performances sa SM North Edsa Cinema 9. Sa muli, full-packed ang nasabing venue, na karamihan sa mga nanood ay pawang mga College students ng San Beda Alabang at Far Eastern University. Tunay namang naka-relate sila sa apat na nasabing mga dula dahil it dealt with fame and success, failure, love, pregnancy, mistresses and wives, bisexual boyfriends, personality crisis and horror.

“I DIDITH SHOW”

Sa apat na nabanggit na dula, pinaka-nagustuhan namin ang pagkakasulat ng dulang I Didith Show, na mula sa akda ng isang Stager na si JP Lopez. Pulidong-pulido ang pagkakasulat ni JP sa dulang ito at wala kaming nakitang “loophole” sa mga sitwasyon at mga pangyayari sa dula. Malinaw na nailahad ni JP ang kahalagahan ng salitang “loyalty” sa bawat indibidwal, na ito’y kusang ibinibigay at hindi hinihingi. Lalo na sa mundo ng showbiz na sadyang malupit at ungrateful. Higit sa lahat, kapag ika’y isa nang papalaos na artista, dapat na mas bigyan mo ng pagmamahal at atensyon ang mga taong hindi ka iniwan magpakailanman, lalo na ang mga FANS.

Mahusay na nagampanan ni Ms. Cindy Liper ang karakter ni Didith, isang “50-plus something” nang singer na very self-centered, pero sa bandang huli ay may puso din pala. Nakakaaliw tignan si Cindy sa entablado acting-out a “greyish” woman na ayaw pang sumuko at tumigil sa laban ng tagumpay at pagkanta. Na dahil sa ilang pagkakamali sa buhay, hindi sinasadyang nagkaroon ng pagkakataon na maghiganti sa kanya ang mga taong nasaktan niya- tulad ni Freddie (na ginampanan ni De-Rotsen Etolle ng makatotohanan), ang dati niyang manager, at nu’ng floor director na ginampanan naman ng ubod ng taray ng Stager ding si JP Lopez.

Low-key lang ang acting dito ni Chin Ortega, na gumanap sa papel na Lilibeth- ang ever-loyal alalay and make-up artist ni Didith. Pero damang-dama mo naman ang puso at intensidad ng kanyang pagganap.

Sina Poul Garcia at Angelica Mercado na gumanap na showbiz couple/lovers sa dulang ito ay kay gagaling din. Napakaguwapo ni Poul tignan sa entablado, samantalang si Angelica naman ay very promising ang dating. Hindi siya nagpahuli kay Cindy Liper sa galing sa pagkanta.

Maganda ang leksyon na ibinigay ng dula. And we predict, malayo ang mararating ng playwright na si JP Lopez pagdating sa pagsusulat. Ang direksyon na ginawa dito ni Vince Tanada ay moderno ang approach. Parang kaparte ka rin ng dula as part of the audience. Kaya mabisa ang atakeng iyon upang mas manamnam mo ang tunay na “essence” ng dulang ito.

“EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER”

Super namang naka-relate sa dulang ito ang mga College students na audience nu’ng araw na pinanood ng isang blogger ang 4-C plays. Kasi, ang dulang ito ay ukol sa pangangaliwa ng isang lalaking malapit nang ikasal sa simbahan. Napapanahon ang dulang ito dahil may hawig sa teleseryeng Two Wives ng channel 2 at sa pelikulang Secret Affair ng Viva Films.

Hanga talaga kami kay Jordan Ladra. Pulidong-pulido ang atake niya sa kanyang role bilang isang piloto na secretly married na sa isang very ideal and decent woman at nakatakda na niyang pakasalan ito sa simbahan, pero minsang nalasing siya ay nabuntis naman niya ang isang flight stewardess na katrabaho niya.

Napaka-kisig ng mga kilos ni Jordan, napaka-debonaire. Samantalang sina Adelle Lim (ang wife) at si Alence Villanueva (ang mistress na pregnant) naman ay very restraint ang ginawang mga portrayals. Hindi sila nag-overacting kaya naman feel na feel mo ang pagka-sosyal ng mga karakter nila.

Ang gaganda ng stage blockings na ginawa ng direktor na si Vince Tanada sa dulang ito. At ang ending ng dula? Magugulat ka.

“GIRL ME”

Ito naman ang pinaka-nakakaaliw na dula sa lahat ng 4-C plays. Pinahanga kami ng husto rito ni Cherry Bagtas, ang female Stager na gumanap sa pangunahing karakter ng dula. Karakter na karakter si Cherry at nakakatuwang tignan ang mga comedy antics niya onstage.

Ang dula ay ukol sa isang desperadang College girl na malas naman at nagkaroon ng dalawang boyfriends na parehong bisexuals pala. Kaya ang ending, mas pinili ni Cherry ang mahalin na lang ang sarili niya keysa magpakasal du’n sa bagong ‘bi’ niyang bf.

Nagulat kami at si Jordan Ladra pala ang may akda ng dulang ito. Hindi namin inasahan na may talento rin pala siya sa pagsusulat ng mga dula. At kuhang-kuha niya ang pulso ng mga kabataan. Pati ang lengguwahe, pananalita, at mga expressions. Kaya naman relate na relate din ang mga College students habang nanonood ng dula.

“ABATOIR”

This is a very dark one-act play na tatakutin ka talaga. Pero may redeeming value sa ending dahil ang dula ay ukol sa isang tatay na naging “human butcher” dahil sa pait ng pagkawala sa piling niya ang kanyang asawa’t anak dahil sa giyera. At sa bandang huli, hindi niya alam na ang na-butcher pala niya ay ang kanyang sariling anak na lalaki na inakala niyang nawala na.

Sa dulang ito, ibang Vince Tanada ang nakita namin. Kakaibang personalidad, malayong-malayo sa ibang mga karakter na nagampanan na niya. Tila nasa ibang dimensyon si Vince habang ginagampanan niya ang papel ng isang “human butcher”.

Sina Marina Esperida naman at Kenneth Sadsad ay tunay ding kahanga-hanga sa dulang ito. Maski nakakatakot ang dula, maaawa ka sa mga karakter nila. Nakakaloka naman ang hubo’t-hubad na eksena ng Stager ding si Regie dela Vega. napaka-daring ni Regie sa isang eksena niyang bigla siyang lumitaw na duguan at walang saplot sa entablado.

Perpekto ang pagkaka-direk sa dulang ito sa lahat ng 4-C plays.

“PARE, MAHAL MO RAW AKO?”

(Lyrics of “Pare, Mahal Mo Raw Ako” – Michael Pangilinan)

Pare mahal mo raw ako
Yan ang sabi mo raw
Nang minsan ay malasing tayo
Hindi kita sinisisi galit ay wala ako
Pare pag-usapan natin to

Pare ako raw ang yong gusto
Yan ba ang lihim na sa aki’y sasabihin mo
Hindi ako iiwas di lalayo sa yo
Pare pag-usapan natin to

Wala namang mababago
Sa pagtingin ko sa iyo
Pero kaibigan lang ang pwede kong ialay sa iyo
At kung higit pa ron pasensya na
Di ko makakaya
Pare kaibigan lang kita

Pare nandito lang ako
Nangangako sa yo ganoon pa rin ikaw, ako
Hindi ako iiwas di lalayo sa yo
Pare kaibigan pa rin ako

Wala namang mababago
Sa pagtingin ko sa iyo
Pero kaibigan lang ang pwede kong ialay sa iyo
At kung higit pa ron pasensya na
Di ko makakaya
Pare kaibigan lang kita

Hindi maiilang lagi mong tandaan
Kaibigan mo ako kailanpaman

Wala namang mababago
Sa pagtingin ko sa iyo
Pero kaibigan lang ang pwede kong ialay sa iyo
At kung higit pa ron pasensya na
Di ko makakaya
Pare kaibigan lang kita
Pare kaibigan lang kita
