UP Film Institute screens Troika


The UP Film Institute holds the fitting grand finale to its summer season of screenings with the debut film by Ihman Esturco. Troika (Threesome) from Daven Productions screens thrice daily for three straight days in three separate sets of playdates as follows: May 15-17 Tue-Thu; May 22-24 Tue-Thu; May 31, June 1, June 2 Thu-Sat at 3, 5 and 7 p.m.

Introducing Andre Soriano, Jamil Basa and Mara Altiera, the sizzling indie flick from Eric Ramos’ screenplay tells the story of an engineer’s troubled marriage with his wife of Indian descent and the miner of ethnic Ibaloi ancestry who would arouse passion in both spouses against the backdrop of a mining site filled with sweaty, swarthy, naked men and badgered for its ill effects on the environment and the indigenous community it has displaced.

The acclaimed film with English subtitles is strictly for mature viewing. Completing the principal cast are Criselda Volks, Lauren Novero, Raven Villanueva, Carlo Lacana and Lara Morena.

    I will not be the least bit surprised if half of the audience walks out midway through the film (at sa UP pa gagawin, hala!) This movie sucks! Kaya nag belly up ang local film industry because of films like this getting made at all. Nood na lang tayo ng Spiderman.

  5. Matteo Says:

    Yeah, didn’t like the movie either. It was just an excuse to show off some skin. Actually, even the sex scenes are lame. And Janvier appeared for like a few seconds.

    I agree. There was a lot of hype before the film came out. Pero nung pinanuod namin, Diyos ko, it was really crap! Forgive me, pero hindi ko maintindihan ang acting ng mga main actors, at saka si lara moreno, parang sya lang nagsasalita (nagmomonologue?) dun sa bar nung dinala nya dun ang bidang babae. At paano naman nakarating dun sa cave yung bata at nasindi pa yung dinamita? Masyadong maraming “unnecessary coincidences”. Hindi na kapani-paniwala. Kahit ayoko sanang magtangkilik ng foreign films lagi pero kung ganitong films din naman ang pinapalabas, eh, mag Spiderman na lang talaga ako. Sensya na. Mataas lang siguro expectation ko sa movie.

    First time I watched a film being screened exclusively sa the UP Film Center, Orapronobis ni Lino Brocka ang palabas. Fast-forward to 2007…yikes!

    I wish they would include this movie in the upcoming Brisbane Queer Film Festival. Looks like we will have a rerun of Maximo Oliveros.
