After one year of absence in last year’s MMFF, the Bossing Vic Sotto is back in the MMFF bandwagon. Not as Enteng Kabisote but with something different. “The Metro Manila Film Fest is meant for the family”, says Sotto; “it is the only time of the year were we are with our families.” “So, I am making something different by doing something family oriented.”
Joining Bossing is the multi-generation of casts like JC Santos, Sue Ramirez, Daniel Matsunaga, Andrea Torres, Gabbi Garcia, Ruru Madrid and making his movie debut is the cute TV sensation Baste. Reuniting with Vic Sotto after 20 years is Dawn Zulueta. Bossing and Dawn last worked together in an OK Ka Fairy Ko movie.
Besides Dawn and Bossing, the only supporting cast present was JC Santos, whom I saw transcend from his career in theater to mainstream entertainment. For Vic Sotto, it was also a humbling experience. Knowing that the younger cast members are also professional and he also learned from them. Dawn also said that it was also their task to make themselves an example to cast members so there won’t be barriers between them in any way. JC felt honored when he said, “So this is what is like to work with Bossing.” Vic Sotto adds, “Baste is such a revelation that he will be big someday. Not just literally but also figuratively, he jokes.” He is also professional at his young age.
“Meant To Beh” is directed by Chris Martinez for OctoArts Films. It will run for the whole duration of the MMFF from Dec. 25, 2017 to January 7, 2018. For more movie blogcon coverage, follow this blog and like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
