I know the title sounds scandalous for avid and rabid Vilmanian. Well, freedom of speech baga, and I am basing my observation sa trailer pa lang alone. Yes, indeed, Vilma unwittingly become the ultimate symbol of Ate Guy’s legacy in this movie. This is the reason why I am excited to see this movie in full to further document my observation. Sa trailer pa lang kita mo na that this movie is a homage to Ate Guy. Here are my points
1. The trailer showed a character introducing herself as Ms. Macaspac. Decades ago, Ate Guy had a movie entered and won in annual edition of MMFF; ANG TOTOONG BUHAY NI PACITA M. And, I believe that it was revealed that M stands for Macaspac.
2. Another scene from the trailer a Sylvia Sanchez look alike screamed “I AM NOT A PIG!!!” Everyone knows about showbiz whether an insider or outsider, this is a humorous reference to a famous dialogue of an equally famous and great cinema classic “MINSAN MAY ISANG GAMU-GAMO.” Kaya ang mukha ni Ate Vi sa eksena mukhang na speechless for few seconds. Naramdaman siguro niya ang presence ni Ate Guy sa kanyang first indie movie.
3. A scene in the trailer involving Cherie Gil reminds Noranian of another important and trailblazing film of all time; nanalo lang naman ang pelikula sa isang top tier film festival. Yes, I am referring the scene as reminiscent of The Flor Contemplacion story. Parang bigla nabawasan ng fifty points ang respeto ko kay Direk Jeff. Ganito naba siya ka creative? Hahahahhahaha.
Kaya, watch talaga ako ng EKSTRA para madagdagan ang lista ko of scenes na may Nora Aunor references. And one more thing pala, gusto ko rin malaman kung comedy ba ito o social satire. Kasi ang canned music na ginamit is kahawig o katunog sa mga musical background sa mga Vic Sotto and Dolphy movies.
