It was through those moments that I am having a hard time breathing because of too much things to accomplish for the week, that I truly find solace in winding my time inside crowded places. In most cases, I find myself walking inside a bookstore and a music store without even realizing it. Next thing I knew, I was standing at the cashier purchasing something. It’s like a pattern…bookstore, music bar, and movie house or movie, book, cd.
The other day, I found myself purchasing a ticket to watch Ploning, Judy Ann Santos’ first venture into film producing. Ploning was shot entirely in the beautiful and quiet town of Cuyo, Palawan (such a stunning place, really). The film is refreshing to watch. I could go on and on about the strength of the film but the bottom line is… I love both the plot and the cinematography! And note: I didn't snooze half-way through the film, as most of the people who watched it predicted. The movie is silent. It doesn't give away much at first, but I got a lot from it...something which truly makes it more pleasurable to watch.
