Paolo Ballesteros during the MMFF Parade
You can’t let this movie pass. Go watch it now!
The movie has also conquered India!
As of today, the movie “Die Beautiful
” is in a tight contest for the #1 spot in terms of box-office receipts in the ongoing Metro Manila Film Festival. But with the positive word-of-mouth and glowing praises about it, I wouldn’t be surprised if it will end up as the official top grosser in the annual filmfest. Despite the R-13 rating, people are coming in droves just to watch the Paolo Ballesteros flick. And you should, too. Besides, it has pageantry written all over, aside from the fact that Pia Wurtzbach photos of my coverage partner Joy Arguil were actually used in one scene.
There are so many quotable quotes to laugh or be sad/pensive about. And instead of me posting them, I will allow you – my dear readers – to reply with your favorite line from the Jun Robles Rana-directed film.
After “Die Beautiful” conquered Tokyo, Japan and Kerala, India with awards to be proud of, I’m pretty sure the MMFF Awards Night will award it with more.

“Barber’s Tales” opens today in SM, Ayala and Robinson Cinemas nationwide. So I encourage you to go out and watch it. The movie deserves a big audience.
Set in the 1970s, the movie revolves around a widow who decided to run her deceased husband’s barber shop inspite of the resistance and mockery from a male-dominated community. She slowly discovers the true meaning of freedom and liberation in the process of doing so.
The Jun Robles Lana-directed movie has already won for him the Best Director Award in the 2014 Madrid International Film Festival and the Best Actess Award in the 2013 Tokyo Film Festival for lead performer Eugene Domingo. It also got the Audience Award at the Udine (Italy) Film Festival, plus the Arri and Technicolor Asia Awards from the Hongkong-Asia Film Financing Forum.
The producers made it easy for you. Above are the screens where you can catch the movie.
Your patronage of “Barber’s Tales” will be most appreciated. Please find time to catch one of its screenings so that the theater owners will be encouraged to extend the film’s very limited run.
See you at the movies! 🙂
