Catch ufo Pictures' award-winning film ENDO as it opens today, Wednesday, February 13, in Gateway, Glorietta 4, and SM (Megamall, North Edsa, Manila, Southmall, Fairview, Centerpoint) cinemas!
Graded "A" by the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB), Endo is the story of Leo (Jason Abalos), a temp worker who is used to the temporary. Typical of many young Filipinos, he hops from one contractual job to the next in order to earn a living for himself and his family. His relationships are similarly fleeting. When he meets the spirited dreamer Tanya (Ina Feleo), he is suddenly faced by the promise of a better future, but he doesn't seem equipped to handle it.
"Endo shows a certain pride in indie filmmaking that is... very timely, very human," said the CEB. "The problem of labor contractualization, though a glaring truth both in real and reel, is brilliantly crafted by the director in a style that is understated and unobtrusive."
The CEB lauded Feleo and Abalos for their "very real and excellent"performances. Feleo, who won Best Actress in the 2007 Cinemalaya Film Festival, is "luminous and fills the screen with her performance," said the CEB. "She is brilliant and she should do more movies."
The movie industry "should support real talents like Ina and Jason," said many of the CEB reviewers.
The board commended Endo's writer/director Jade Castro, as well as co-writers Michiko Yamamoto and Raymond Lee, for their "refreshing" treatment of a common experience "that is not done in the mainstream."
