Audience Reviews for Kaleldo
I need to separate my friends list so I can have the horror movie fans separate from indie fans from B-movie fans from big budget action fans, etc. So I apologize for sending this to all. I watch everything, so it?s a big mix under my profile. With that, here is a foreign movie that?s director is making some noise. This movie is going to be dismissed by some as soap opera fodder and the beginning is a bit hard to overcome visually because of the up and down angles the director stages and uses too often. But when you get through it, it is great subtle progression of a story of simple family evolution in 3rd world countries. Of the 4 real chapters, 3 have direct symbolism that is told out and out. Then there is the main idea of the recovery from a volcanic eruption. You build on/near something volatile and when it erupts, you build up again. Although this movie is in the Philippines, it can be any religiously oppressed 3rd world country. I, of course, have a personal interest in this movie because my wife is from the area this is film and when I visited where she is from, I toured some of the buried cities and they are amazing, even more so that people just built on top of it and kept on going. With that, this is a real piece of life that doesn?t unfold in a Hollywood way. It does have strained lighting, which may have been on purpose but makes for strange visuals, hard to read subtitles in the copy I have and a very forced artsy sex scene for the lesbian sister after realistic portrayals of hetero sex with the first sisters, but this movie is a great portrait piece and I hope this movie is a first step movie like how Aronofsky went from Pi to Requiem and others. The director is getting a lot of buzz around festivals (Cannes included) with his latest movie Serbis about a movie theatre that is a haven for male prostitution and how the family is torn about this ? so we?ll see if he?s moving up.
