|ASTIG (SQUALOR) A Cinemalaya presentation of a Boy Abunda Production Starring Sid Lucero, Arnold Reyes, Edgar Allan Guzman, and Dennis Trillo with Glaiza de Castro Cinemalaya 2009's topgrosser and most awarded film is an episodic tale of four young men whose tories parallel and contrast with the landmarks and various images of Manila. It tells the story of Ariel (Dennis Trillo), a conman who has to leave his girlfriend upon learning that he is in love her: Boy (Edgar Allan Guzman), an expectant young father who has to sell his body to pay his wife's hospital bill: Ronald (Arnold Reyes), a Chinese mestizo who is coming to grips with his identity: and Baste (Sid Lucero), an overly protective son of an OFW who has to avenge her sister. "Portraying the severe reality which doesn't allow even for small dreams, the film captures the hope and despair of four men and their low lives in Manila. The complicated inner story goes on with a vivid dynamic camera work and a straightforward narrative. The respectife characters are intertwined, but they don't recognize each other like the indifferent city they are living in." Cho Young-Jung / The 14th Pusan International Film Festival "Crisp and seamless blend of the caucophony of city life and the whispers and screams of its shattered lives...Startling and powerful juxtapositions of life in the city and the jarring yet startlingly seamless intermingling stories of its four young men...Powerful portayal of stillness and soicism amidst the ghosts of his past and the choas os street life in Manila, even as it is brought to tragic breaking point..Storytelling excellence and technical brilliance in weaving the elements of the cinema into a coherent tale of tragedy and chaos." - The Cinemalaya 2009 Jury|
