DVD: Imoral (2008)


Adolfo Alix's Imoral was made available in DVD four months after it debuted in Cinemalaya. Although the disc's speedy release is greatly appreciated, its noticeable bungle in the features department is a big letdown.

No subtitles, no theatrical trailers, no scene selection.

Surprisingly, an extensive gallery of the cast and a nice video of the film's theme song were included. Sang by actor Arnold Reyes, "Kung Ako Ba S'ya" makes this DVD, somehow, worth it.

Hey Scud!

I like the opening scene, the screenplay is alright, the theme song is very nice, and just like most Alix flicks, the cinematography is superb. But there's something about the film's ending... I find it flat and anticlimactic.

TheScud said...

the opening was really good pero the whole film was a little bit disappointing. pangit nga din ang ending. tama ba na nag-abroad si paolo at naiwan na lang si katherine at arnold?

And the bad thing about it is, Jonathan and Abby were left leaving together in one roof. Di ba they hated each other's guts?

Dante was really lucky: he was able to leave both Abby and Jonathan and start from scratch — may pocket money pa siya. Hehe.

I agree, many Pinoy DVDs are substandard. I understand that manufacturers are trying to cut down costs, pero sana maski subtitles at scene selection man lang lagyan nila; pag wala kasi yung mga yun, parang wala na rin siyang pinag-kaiba sa VCD. Hehe.

Thanks, by the way, for adding me to your blogroll. I added you in mine. :-)

The movie is about people who thiink they know someone they love very well. The wife wonders if she is loved by the husband. The husband's male lover, despite the fact he supports them because he makes more money, surprisingly is the most admirable character. The husband, who is confused on who he loves more, the wife or the male lover, in the end, reveals that he loves himself most.

Now watch the movie again. It is a very well-written character-driven movie.

I originally saw the film at UP. I have the DVD and I'm planning to watch it again — maybe this coming weekend.
