It was a small cast evolving around a few characters, Irene played by Agot Isidro is the main role in the movie who has a family line suffering from Schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that makes it hard to tell the difference between what is real and not real. It is a mental disorder characterized by a breakdown of thought processes and by impaired emotional responses.
Here in the Philippines, a disability survey made by the National Statistics Office (NSO) revealed that mental illness (includes schizophrenia) is the third most common form of disability with a prevalence rate of 88 cases per 100,000 population. Unfortunately, half of all patients with schizo are unaware they have the disease and are not being treated. source : PCHRD
Other cast includes TJ Trinidad, who plays the loving husband of Irene, Carlo Cruz, Upeng Galang Fernandez, Carl Alexander Acosta and Ku Aquino. “Mga Anino ng Kahapon” is directed by Alvin Yapan and is produced by Johnsons & Johnsons.
It was an overwhelming performance specially with Agot Isidro’s potrayal as Irene which perfectly matches TJ Trinidad who played ED, as husband, who sacrifices a lot in order to get his family through this dilemma of caring for her wife. There is also a notable approach the director is maintaining to retain the feeling of being in the scene, and also shows a lot of consistency through the camerawork’s. Some of the highlights of the movie includes Carlo Cruz’ scene where he tried to talk with Irene’s imaginary friends, the scene showing Carlo’s imaginary girlfriend, the part where Irene took her child in the school and acted like they were being seized by the military and the final attack of Irene, where Agot really gave her best performance.
The movie was Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board, “Mga Anino ng Kahapon” have a simple plot but conveyed a big message that touches ones emotion and understanding to people who suffered from Schizophrenia. A definitely worth to see movie.
