Adela Reviews:

The fresh trend that is being employed by some of the most flourishing directors and screenwriters in movie is with the test of true time in terms of storytelling. Adela is one of those movies which made it right. The story's development is loaded with all those activities event in a day. You will never doubt Adela's energy to do all those things for her age. And yet, it adheres to the most essential elements of a movie despite the time constraint. It's nice to know that the movie was shot for seven days not really a day in Adela's life. It might be physically impossible for an actress like Anita Linda to conform to the concept of true time. I don't wish to meddle with the theories behind it as it's a various issue. What is necessary is Anita Linda's performance with of course Adolfo Alix's directing. Despite her age and the director's concept of true time storytelling (usually happens in a day), Adela is one that I will never receive tired of watching. It is simply because; Linda is magnificent! Adela turns eighty years old. It seems other ordinary day to her life. She goes to the market. She prepares the ingredients for the pansit bihon (vermicelli noodle dish). She expects a visit from her daughter to celebrate her birthday with her. She goes to the church. She visits the grave of her husband. She also visits her son in the prison. And come back to her shanty and wait with much hope that somehow, something extraordinary is in shop for her that day.The shabby production design is apparently shot in the junkyard part of Manila. Despite its understated setting, the moment Linda simply passes by the area; it made the whole zone enchanting. I am at a loss for words on how nice her performance was. Linda is the very key to the success of this movie and I have no doubt about it. Alix's directing skills with a handful of movies as his backup might have contributed a lot in bringing the greatest from Linda. If this has been done by a various director, I have this feeling that it would receive messed up. And for the role of Adela, I have exactly the same precognition. It is quite tedious to demonstrate a wide range of emotions with subtlety and Linda has done it with style.When I review Alix's film, it certainly appears to be short. Adela is a storyline which transpires in a day. The simplistic nature of the movie threatens to belie its profundity for the unseasoned viewer. No dramatizations, no histrionics, just the stark goings-on of an ordinary woman's life. Precisely this is what Filipino movies lack, brevity. Before, I really have doubts with their ideologies in its incorporation of true time for movie perspective. I basically view true time as something theoretical in nature, and will possibly distort its own views. I felt that Alix has done a nice task in this. I have a fair grasp of this supposed fresh trend in films.Adela is Alix's greatest work so far. After all, seeing a legend on the screen is one rare opportunity. Linda is simply stunning. Her past works might have not been very visible in our local theatres as well as in television. Adela is one movie you will certainly be blessed to see a performance that requires a luminary presence and charisma. Anita Linda has such qualities.Rating: 4/5


"Adela" says the storyline of an old filipino woman, who lives next to a mount of plastic trash and how she interacts with a community full of desperation, crime and false hopes.The movie has some very powerful images, especially the territories create you feel very uneasy at times. It is more of a slow and silent movie, which can be great sometimes because it supports to display certain emotions but is on the another hand my largest mission of criticism. Not much happens throughout this film. Unfortunately, I really have to tell that for me the film has its lengths. I know that many folks will disagree because they prefer a slower, more emotional approach but in this situation it doesn't work for me. What you receive is a great portrait of hopelessness, an element of thrill, not so much.All in all this is a nice movie if you like a more sober style of film-making that depicts issues without necessarily naming them or putting them in the foreground. For me there are better of this type and there would have been more potential, but I can see why folks like it.
