Captive by Brillante Mendoza Trailer

 Latest movie of the multi-awarded director, Brillante Mendoza, “Captive”is his first international film, with the French actress Isabelle Huppert in the lead role. In telling the story about the kidnapping of foreigners by the terrorist group Abu-Sayyaf in the Isle of Jolo, Brillante Mendoza apply his indie savoir-faire to a different landscape than what he is used to. The jungle might now have replaced the worn out buildings and the slums of Manila, the subject might be more obviously political; still Mendoza’s cinema revolves around the misfits, and the somewhat causeless daily struggles of the common man and woman. When the frame gets tighter on the characters, their sensations, their will and their constraint to live, their primal feelings and their urge for self-preservation, “Captive” seizes glimpses of the very meaning of humanity, as a constant opposition between life and morality.

The cast includes Isabelle Huppert, Ronnie Lazaro, Maria Isabel Lopez and Mercedes Cabral.
