Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa is not your ordinary indie film. With its visuals, lines, and various elements, it’s a film that you must watch.
Why I watched it
Seeing its trailer on Facebook, I was convinced that I should see the film ASAP. The trailer included trains, urban places, and an emotional song. These things made me wonder what the film was all about. Luckily, this had been shown in selected SM malls, including Megamall. I went there, yesterday, to fulfill my “emotional” needs when it comes to films.
What I loved about the film was its plot. It did not follow the typical structure of a story. It started at the middle of the story where the protagonists were finally searching themselves. These two, Sam and Isa, were weighing the conditions if they would pursue the relationship or not. They were in the middle of decision making. Lines and scenes were quiet limited and few. Instead, the film focused on its emotional side.
Scenes in which Sam was getting emotional were my favorite. The taxi scene was also a concrete proof why this film won several awards. How could you not love the way this film featured trains? I truly loved the way it was taken. The lights, platforms, and the train stations were admirable. The natural effect of people passing by wowed me as well. The shaky camera contributed to the film, too.
