Mariquina (Cinemalaya X) | Point of View

About Mariquina

Unlike the former Philippine First Lady, Imelda is indifferent towards shoes. To her, they are fraught with the bittersweet nostalgia of childhood, one that was marred by a difficult relationship with her shoe-maker father, Romeo. Growing up, all of hers were handmade by him. Now a mature woman, she takes a pivotal call from the morgue, spurring her search for the perfect pair of shoes for her dead father. The deeper she searches for the perfect shoes, the more she finds herself.

Point Of View

Milo Sogueco's Mariquina has a certain bittersweet charm to it. The attention to detail and fluid direction were really commendable.

Expect Mylene Dizon, Ricky Davao, and Bing Pimentel to figure prominently during awards night. Such great performances.
