MMFF 2016: Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2: #ForeversNotEnough starring Eugene Domingo and Jericho Rosales
BABAE SA SEPTIC TANK 2
Official Entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2016
a film by Marlon Rivera written by Chris Martinez
MMFF Selection Committee Citation: Where the original film satirized the sensationalistic tendencies of the indie film and the dishonesty of directors who make films for foreign festivals, this sequel launches a pointed but hilarious commentary on the pretensions and machinations that characterize the mainstream movie industry and its stars and superstars in our day. While this comedy may be seen as a film reflecting on itself or a self-reflexive film, it is nonetheless a film that will appeal as well to all moviegoing Filipinos who will profit from and enjoy seeing through the falsities and frivolities of the mainstream movies they have been watching for decades.
With wit that sparkles in carefully-crafted dialogue and acting that shines way above the commonplace, this comedy tickles both the mind and the funnybone. The film is -- Babae sa Septic Tank 2. Starring: Eugene Domingo, Joel Torre, Jericho Rosales, Kean Cipriano, Khalil Ramos and Cai Cortez.
