crying ladies

Some people have the mistaken notion that Nikki and I snub Filipino films. That's so far from the truth - we'll watch it if it's good. Like "Crying Ladies" starring Sharon Cuneta, Angel Aquino, Hilda Koronel and Eric Quizon. In essence, it is about 3 women who are hired as professional mourners for a Chinese wake.

I'm not in the habit of describing films in detail, so suffice it to say that we enjoyed this one tremendously. It was finely acted and written. Only two qualms: editing needed to stricter; and certain conceits simply did not work. But regardless, it is an excellent film, comparable with some mainland Chinese films I've seen in terms of quality.

Go and see it for yourself.
