Ulan: Desire according to the modern fairy tale – Tinig ng Plaridel
Romance movies have long been powerful tools in teaching audiences how to want, and how to desire. With decades full of them, it's no wonder that they have created an aimless culture of romance-seeking among this generation. However, romance movies cannot compare to fairy tales in terms of influencing the culture of desire through centuries. With her new movie Ulan, Director Irene Villamor offers a different take on romance in film as she conjures a whimsical fantasy with a touch of magic realism. However, despite its surreal production design and believable chemistry, Ulan is, as fairy tales are, rotten in its core.
