WHAT I LIKE?
Seven Sundays is a cinematic masterpiece and one of Star Cinema’s finest films after Tanging Yaman. The film is a perfect blend of family drama, romance and heartwarming message that cuts deep. What I like about the movie is its faithfulness to the Filipino Family spirit and its direct and on-point interpretation of family-oriented values that most of us can relate to. Its very close to the Filipino audience as it tackles different issues within an ordinary family setting from indifferences and struggles that are realistic. I really commend the creativity on majority of the scenes specially the Opening Credits. Cinematography-wise, its impressive. Phasing and variety of sequences are great since the scenes were supported well with superb performances and consistent story-telling technique. The scenes and conversations were just right with the plot. I really love the script and choice of words too. Seven Sundays’ main strength is its impressive cast of characters. All of them were just great in their own roles and were all good compliments with each other. Aga Muhlach was a perfect choice as an eldest sibling. Dingdong Dantes’ portrayal of a rich sibling was good too. Cristine Reyes may play the same role of a estranged wife but this time, she is realistic. Enrique Gil’a role at first maybe vague and irrelevant but as the story progresses, he will bring us into a deeper take on his side in the family. Overall, Cathy Garcia-Molina did a great job in combining a stellar cast with a very heartwarming and inspiring plot material close to our heart. Worth-watching indeed.
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
The ending is a bit off and cringe-worthy for me. Its forgivable though.
