Point of View

I won't be surprised if Janice O'Hara's Sundalong Kanin ends up as this year's Audience Choice. It was flawed but completely engaging.

Not even the overacting of Marc Abaya (who just graduated from the post-80s Christopher de Leon School of Acting) made me dislike the movie.

I hope they give the Ensemble Cast award to the kids of Sundalong Kanin, easily the most charming kids since last year's Iskalawags.
