The movie PAMILYA ORDINARYO has a promise because of its relatively good directing, great performances, passable [but ordinary] storytelling and somehow an interesting premise. But that promise wasn’t fulfilled. The movie doesn’t know how it should end. It is just a series of expositions and self-serving profanities just for the rawness of it.
But this is the kind of movie that international film festivals rave about. Those international film festivals that see poverty porn from countries like PH as novelty because it’s an alien concept and reality to them. But for a Filipino audience like me, this is nothing but ordinary. Indeed, this film is not only about an ordinary family. But the story too.
