Nagpapanggap ( pretending)  is a short film that tackles the issue of a family torn apart when wife discovers the husband's affair with another woman.  The wife continues everyday life although the daughter chooses to move away from them.   Acting can still be improved but  the film brings with it a message that's profound,   sometimes people go on and pretend everything is okay,  although they're hurting inside.   The song "Balatkayo" (camouflage)  seems like a fitting  conclusion to end the film.

  • I'd say the cinematography is good, acting not so much. The model of jeepney in the film is not circa 1960's. Long jeepney's came out during the late 70's and 80's.
