the boy with the broken stomach
‘Pak! Pak! My Dr. Kwak!’, under the direction of Tony Y. Reyes is totally a blockbuster after earning Php 15 Million on its first day of screening. It’s the first movie pairing of Vic Sotto and Bea Alonzo. Also in this movie are the child wonders Zaijan Jaranilla and Xyriel Manabat and comedians Pokwang, the Wally and Jose duo. With its powerhouse cast, it’s not a surprise to have a hilarious time watching the movie.

The movie will engage in conflicts between science and faith. The belief of Filipinos on mystics has always been rooted to culture. Vic Sotto as a quack doctor and Bea Alonzo as a medical doctor will have a feud. Both will fight for their beliefs but will later find themselves fighting for love they develop to each other. Another romantic subplot of the movie is between Zaijan and Xyriel. Zaijan Jaranilla on the other hand will play as an angel, giving a fantasy appeal in the story.­­

A movie like this has been part of the industry, to which we play along. This is part of our culture and the Philippine cinema, making money to something shallow. I have not personally watched the film but I think it’s good. I hope that in the future we can make more movies. Not only can we watch a miraculous boy doing all the movie magic, but even better.
