ANINO SA LIKOD NG BUWAN (2015) Review
Directed by Jun Robles Lana
A bravura feat in Philippine cinema. From the direction to the story and the acting, Anino Sa Likod ng Buwan is no holds barred in delivering excellent production. Jun Lana who wrote and direct the film made sure his passion for filmmaking is felt all throughout the film and the result is something unimaginable. Small productions have a hard time financing their films but most of the time they’re the ones surprising the audience with something big and special to offer. Kudos to the cast especially to LJ Reyes for successfully pulling off something that demands more than acting skills.
The technicalities of the film is immensely intricate, being a one-shot feature film, the audience will find it hard to imagine the work being done behind the camera and the things that goes inside the heads of the actors. The experience of watching the film is incomparable to any movie released this year and this is Jun Lana’s best work so far, well-written, ambitious and well-executed.
