mercedes cabral delivers an astonishing performance in the international film- ‘rosita’ (an acting film review)…

rosita rosita2 rosita3mercedes: a wonder!

It’s a very simple European film with sexy undertones. But what mattered most in this unpretentious small film was the pure and concise message it implied. It spoke of LOVE.

And LOVE solidifies itself in many forms- in flowers, oceans, hills, …. and human beings, too. In the film ROSITA, love was shown in the very being and image of the actress who portrayed it- no less than our own gem and pride- Ms. Mercedes Cabral.

She was the epitome of love itself in the movie. And she delivered it well, without any harsh efforts on her part, she simply did her job, polished her acting skills, minimized her moves and all- and simply used her eyes and subtle ways of reacting in the most difficult scenes of the movie. Yes, it spoke of international acclaim. We meant, her acting skills.

It was simply astonishing. Only her lips moved, highlighted by her brows and her eyes, supplicated by her cheeks, roundish ass and well-sculpted body figure. Mercedes, indeed, was a wonder.

Too bad this was only a small independent European film, if it could have been a mainstream Hollywood film, the more chaos and “promos” could have made Mercedes a real “hot one”.

ROSITA told of a story in which every Filipinos could relate to. That, of finding someone to LOVE in the twilight years of your life. Rosita’s character came to rescue a European family out to be totally eaten-out by their strong, independent culture. With Rosita’s entrance upon being invited-in to be the father’s new mistress, changes came. But beautiful ones at that.

Even when the son left because he fell in love with Rosita, too, we could say, was a beautiful change. It was a new horizon explored.

Thank you for the director and the story-maker of this film for putting Filipinos in a good light- seen in a more profound and wonderful way. Thank you… thank you!!!

With ROSITA, life could never be the same again-

JUST LIKE…

 

FOREVER.

full photo coverage of mr. vino oriarte in the first year anniversary of ptv 4’s “personage”…

It’s a TV show with an advocacy. Paying tribute to people who had done something nice and good in their fields of work, in their communities, in the form of arts and the society. These extraordinary people speak about themselves in this award-winning TV talk show. They reveal their lives, their pains and sorrows and simple tasks to make this world a better place to live in.

And it’s been a one year of good telecast and successful TV ratings for the whole team and staff of “Personage”. Hosted by model-beauty queen Carla Lizardo, the show just celebrated their one year anniversary recently at Cravings restaurant in Katipunan Avenue, with some very important celebrity guests who had all appeared in their TV show.

Recently, “Personage” was nominated at Gandingan Awards for Gandingan ng Kababaihan together with its pretty host Carla Lizardo, the nominated episodes were about the Indie Film Actresses Mercedes Cabral and Irma Adlawan.
 
“Personage” also received Special Awards last March 26 at GADtimpala Awards for Media. 
But last May 15, they’re the ones who gave awards to celebrities, on that very night of their first year anniversary. It’s the  “Personage Katangi-tanging Pilipino Awardees”. The recepients were: Miss Mercedes Cabral, Irma Adlawan, Frederick Peralta, Brillante Mendoza and Ricky Lee.
Among the celebrities who attended that evening were Lance Raymundo, Ms. Tessie Lagman (who sang one song everybody that night), Mercedes Cabral, veteran writer Ricky Lee, fashion designer Frederick Peralta, manager-director Shandii Bacolod, theater actor JV Cruz, The Elites models, Mr. Martin Martin, PJ Aguilar and the boy singing group Freshmen, among others.
Photographer Vino Oriarte captured the full coverage of this great event. Photos below.
It was a great anniversary presentation. And to all the “Personage” team, More Power and More Luck!
