Ploning


Paunawa: Ang sumusunod ay hindi para sa mga taong nagsasabi ng "Eww, hindi ako nanunuod ng Tagalog. English lang pinapanood ko kasi baduy pag Tagalog." Sa mga ganun, isang sampal at sipa para sa inyo kasi hindi ninyo malalaman na napakaraming magagandang pelikulang Filipino sa nakalipas na hindi hamak na mas maganda sa mga komersyal na pelikulang Hollywood. Ang Ploning ay isa sa mga iyon. Isang makabagong obra na maililinya sa hanay ng mga klasikong pelikulang Filipino na ating maipagmamalaki.
Ang industriya ng pelikula sa Pilipinas ay unti-unting namamatay dahil sa ganitong mentalidad. Kung lahat ng tao ay agad iisipin na mas maganda ang pelikulang banyaga, at walang manonood ng lokal ng pelikula upang mahinuha man lang kung maganda ito o hindi, ay lalo lamang papangit ang kalidad ng mga ito dahil mawawalan ng gana ang mga producer na gumastos para pagandahin ang mga pelikula natin.

Oo, minsan nakakafrustrate manood ng pelikulang Filipino. Lalo na kung alam natin ang potensyal ng kwento na nalapastangan lamang ng garapalang pag-aadvertise ng mg produkto ng mga sponsor kagaya ng lahat ng mga pelikula ni Vic Sotto na sinasama pa ang plugging sa script. Naroon din ang mga kwentong ilang daang beses na nirecycle at mas matanda pa sa tambalang Guy at Pip o Sharon at Gabby na ngayon ay nilapatan lamang ng makabagong setting pero halos ganoon pa din ang kwento. Nariyan din ang mga jokes na kasitanda na si Dolphy at ng Tito, Vic and Joey... na ginagawa pa rin at isinasapelikula (parin) nila Vic Sotto at Dolphy.

With the production of independent films of late, true lovers of cinema are now able to produce movies without studio intervention. This is not to say that movies produced by the bigger studios are crap, but along with the big budget that they use are major sponsors that they have to please and the pressure for an ample ROI. Making an independent film however means more artistic freedom and a license to express anything and everything that the auteur wants to express. Sometimes, this freedom is also license to produce soft core pornography in the guise of an "art film" but if we just patiently look through the heap, we can sometimes stumble upon cinema masterpieces among these films.

Ploning is one such movie. Based on a local song of the same title, Ploning tells a very sincere story of love, family and keeping promises as seen from the point of view of a young boy. Having waited for the return of the man that she loves for almost a decade, Ploning was asked in one scene, "Kung nagmamamahal ka, pero hindi mo naman kasama araw-araw, at hindi ka din sigurado kung babalikan ka, anong tawag dun?" (How do you call it when you love someone even if you're not together and you don't have any guarantee that he will come back for you?) She simply replied, "Nagmamahal. Kasi ang nagmamahal, nagtitiwala."(It's called love. Because when you love someone, you trust him.) Never has this kind of movie been so affecting since Cinema Paradiso... and that is saying a lot.

Now officially, our country's entry to the Oscar's Best Foreign Film category, this is the first year in a long time, that I am actually rooting proudly for our film entry to at least be part of the top five. But no matter the outcome, this movie is something that we, as Filipinos, can be proud of. Catch the movie on DVD if you haven't seen it yet.

  2. I saw this with my mom on the first screening day back in April or May. Never had a chance to write about it since my blog wasn't active then. :)

  3. it is a beautiful beautiful film, and it's definitely a huuuuge step away from the usual mainstream crappy kilig movies....

    although there are some slight slip-ups in the movie (was the kiddo ploning's son?) i still strongly recommend this to be watched...

  4. The kid was Eugene Domingo's son. Domingo btw, while very good in comedy, is brilliant when she isn't trying to be funny.

  5. I love this movie. A lot of people have trashed it but I think this is an awesome masterpiece. I have some complaints on the acting of the main character (the grown up boy) but all in all I have enjoyed this movie a lot. There is a great depth to it not found in many Filipino movies today.
