After the hilarious comedy Bromance: My Brother's Romance which will hit theaters on May 15, Skylight Films and Star Cinema proudly present Tuhog, a dark comedy movie starring Eugene Domingo, Enchong Dee, Jake Cuenca, Empress and Leo Martinez.
In Tuhog, Eugene Domingo plays the role of Fiesta, a bus barker who turned spinster out of dedication to take good care of his demented father. Her life changes after she met Nato (Jake Cuenca), a driver who won her heart but with a dark secret.
Leo Martinez is Tonio, a retired old man past his prime who risked his pension to fulfill his dream of becoming a baker. Meanwhile, Enchong Dee plays Caloy, a young man who vowed to preserve his virginity for his girlfriend Angel (Empress), who also agreed to give her virginity only to Caloy. However, long distance relationship and a new guy in Angel's life challenged Caloy's faithfulness to the said pact.
The title of the movie, Tuhog (which may sound erotic to some) stemmed from an accident which pierce three of the characters in a single steel bar. That mishap tied the lives of Fiesta (Eugene Domingo), Tonio (Leo Martinez) and Caloy (Enchong Dee) together.
Who will be given another chance to live and make things right? And whose life is really bound to end?
According to Eugene Domingo, Tuhog's script is one of the best she had read for a long time and given a chance to compete in international film festivals, the award-winning actress said that Tuhog's screenplay will have a good chance of winning.
Written by Veronica Velasco and Jinky Laurel and also directed by Veronica Velasco (Last Supper No. 3 which won Best Film in 2009 Cinemalaya), Tuhog will open in theaters July 17, 2013.
