Madaling Araw Mahabang Gabi Synopsis

The film is about the entangled stories of a group of young people who happen to be in a bar in Puerto Princessa, Palawan on the eve of All Souls' Day. As midnight approaches, we become complicit as each of them takes the challenge of the Pangangaluluwa, a seemingly innocent Palawan tradition of honoring the dead by stealing something from the living. A young guitarist battles with crabs; an Indian guy gets caught in a crossfire; a hot cougar meets her match; Cosplayers battle for road supremacy; a religious woman finds true faith in a strange kiss; and a bartender prepares a drink that results in the most bitter of brews. The movie holds up a mirror to this dark night and bear witness to the inevitable consequences that mark the choices of the young

So surprised to know that this movie has a powerhouse cast, from Angelica Panganiban to veterans like Cherie Gil and Lou Veloso but I felt that  somehow there was a shallow story behind it all.  I felt as if there was quandary during the entirety of the movie and while there were attempts of comedic relief it just didn't somehow came out as satisfactory.  While the objective of the film may very well be to convey something still, the viewers can't help but feel shortchanged and came out quite confused.  From the roster of actors, I'd have to say Glaiza de Castro and Dominic Roco stood out in their roles.
