Erich Gonzales in Richard Somes masterpiece 'Mariposa (Sa Hawla ng Gabi)'

Directed by visionary indie filmmaker Richard V. Somes, the psycho-action thriller tells the tale of an innocent woman, played by Erich, who unravels horrible truths while in search of her long lost sister, threading together intense moments shot in the hidden areas of Manila. 

The unique rawness depicted in Mariposa successfully takes the local film scene to whole new levels, exposing how the values of innocence, helplessness, and justice are brutally translated in today’s day and age. A daring revelation on how aggressive struggles really are, this edgy work of art takes things even further by having the movie’s main star take center stage, portraying a role that demands an unexpected sense of versatility from Erich that took viewers by surprise. 

“Mariposa” will be shown from April 19 to April 27 at the Far East Film Festival. The annual Far East Film Festival, now on its 15th year, is the biggest European film festival that showcases East Asian films.

Erich Gonzales Reunites with Richard Somes in Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi

Posted on November 30, 2012 | 3:08 PM

After “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang”, Erich Gonzales stars in another dark and gritty film by acclaimed director Richard Somes, “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” that will be screened during the 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

Somes admitted that he loved Erich’s acting style, “I thought Erich really suited the lead character of Mariposa and I have already written the script to really suit her personality. The problem was, she became super busy because of her other commitments,” he said.

The director who has worked with Erich thrice was surprised when the seasoned actress informed him that she has received the script and felt ecstatic to do the film. “We talked and she agreed to adjust her schedule to make room for Mariposa,” Somes said.

In Mariposa, Erich will portray a ‘probinsiyana’ who ventures into the city to find her long lost sister. Somes said that this reunion would be fun and easy for both of them since he already knew what Erich is capable of. “Erich will portray a very challenging role here and very different from the ones she has done so far,” he said.

The director mentioned that in the film, Erich skinned a monitor lizard without any hint of fear and that she has some really amazing fight scenes without the help of a double. “You will really see a ‘kickass’ Erich in this film,” he said.

Likewise for Alfred Vargas who also stars in Mariposa. Somes said that Vargas prepared physically and mentally for this project, “Alfred has always been pictured as a kind and handsome corporate guy; very clean and gentlemanly. But here in Mariposa, he’ll portray a very different role; the characters here are dark, grim and gritty,” he said.

The film was set in 1994 in the gloomy side of Metro Manila. “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” also stars Joel Torre, Mark Gil, Rez Cortes, Maria Isabel Lopez, Dennis Padilla and John Lapus who will also portray a shocking role.

“There are a lot of compelling scenes in Mariposa. Erich was very fantastic in portraying a really strong woman,” said Somes.

Watch “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” on December 1 at 5:00 p.m., December 5 at 9:15 p.m. and December 8 at 2:30 p.m. at the Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and December 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Edsa Shang-ri La Cineplex during the 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals festival will run from November 28 to December 9 at Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and from November 29 to December 4 at the Edsa Shangri-La Cineplex. The festival’s much awaited awards night will be held on December 3 at the Studio 1, ABS-CBN Main Building.

Daughter of Beauty Queen Bares Body and Soul in "Palitan," Cinema One Originals Entry

Posted on November 29, 2012 | 10:50 AM

Set in the gritty streets of Raon, Quiapo, “Palitan” which stars Mara Lopez, Alex Medina and Mon Confiado, is an erotic film which is a tribute to the classic “Scorpio Nights”.

Directed by Ato Bautista, the film was inspired by his most favorite film of Peque Gallaga. “I made Palitan as risqué and bold as possible but it’s not really based on the story of Scorpio Nights,” said Bautista, who waited seven years to make it.

The film marks the first leads and most daring roles of Lopez, daughter of former beauty queen Maria Isabel Lopez and Medina, son of veteran actor Pen Medina.


Lopez admitted that she had to consult her mother before accepting the role. “My mom and I discussed if I am ready to accept such an intriguing role and she said she’ll always be there to help and support me. It’s my most challenging role and there are a lot to watch out for, but I don’t want to divulge anything. Let’s just say I placed my full trust to my co-actors and director,” said Lopez.

In “Palitan”, Confiado, the consumate actor who is known for his dedication by transforming himself into the characters he portrays, plays Ramiro, the cunning boss of the stupid and ill-tempered Nestor (Medina) who is badly in debt with him. Love-starved and porn-tired Ramiro wants more than money from Nestor; he wants his young and lovely common law wife, Luisa (Lopez). Ramiro and Nestor agree on a deal that will push the characters into unexpected and unexplored boundaries of power play, love, lust, deceit, and jealousy.

Bautista’s fifth full feature, “Palitan” was supposed to be his second fillm and be released as “Scorpio Nights 3” years ago but never came to fruition. And now we have the chance to watch “Palitan” in selected theaters, it will have its premiere night on December 1 at 9:30 p.m. at the Edsa Shangri-La Cineplex during the 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival will run from November 28 to December 9 at Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and from November 29 to December 4 at the Edsa Shangri-La Cineplex. The festival’s much awaited awards night will be held on December 3 at the Studio 1, ABS-CBN Main Building.

Restored Version of 'Oro Plata Mata' Opens 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival

Posted on November 21, 2012 | 4:09 PM

The restored version of the multi-awarded Filipino classic “Oro, Plata, Mata” by Peque Gallaga will open this year’s Cinema One Originals Film Festival on November 28 at the Robinson’s Galleria Movie World.

The screenplay of the 1982 film was written by Jose Javier Reyes with cinematography by acclaimed cinematographer Rody Lacap. The film was set in the Philippine province of Negros during World War II and tells the story of how two haciendero families cope with the changes brought by the war.

The film cast includes Cherie Gil, Sandy Andolong, Ronnie Lazaro, Joel Torre, Liza Lorena, Manny Ojeda, Mitch Valdes, Lorli Villanueva, Abbo dela Cruz, Kuh Ledesma, Manny Castaneda, and Mary Walter. It won the 1982 Gawad Urian awards for Best picture, direction, cinematography, production design, musical score, and sound. In the same year, it won the Luna Awards of the Film Academy of the Philippines for Production Design and for Best Supporting Actress (Liza Lorena).

“The script, by Jose Javier Reyes, is so thematically dense that a single interpretation is probably insufficient to discuss what the movie is really about. One could say, at the very least, that the film is about irrevocable change, how one can never really go back to happier times, once you’ve been touched by war. It’s about inevitable decay: gold, silver, death. It’s about the country, and how we’ve come to this point,” wrote Philbert Ortiz Dy in a review. “Oro, Plata, Mata has much to offer you. It’s the kind of film that gives you more and more to chew on the more you watch it. It’s an almost frighteningly rich film experience, one that shouldn’t be missed by any Filipino film devotee,” he added.

This marks the first showing of the restored version of the film. The restoration was made possible through a partnership between ABS-CBN Film Archives headed by Leo Katigbak and Central Digital Lab, Inc. It is the second film restored after Ishmael Bernal’s “Himala” in time for its 30th anniversary.

“Oro, Plata, Mata” is considered as Gallaga’s most significant contribution to Philippine cinema. Catch this timeless classic at the opening of the 8th Cinema One Originals this November 28 (Wednesday) at the Robinson’s Galleria Movie World. The festival’s opening event will start at 6:00 p.m.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival will run from November 28 to December 9 at Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and from November 29 to December 4 at the Edsa Shangri-La Cineplex. The festival’s much awaited awards night will be held on December 3 at the Studio 1, ABS-CBN Main Building.
