    Metro Manila

    ★★★

    Opens well with a gripping set of scenes depicting the migration of a young family from rural Phillipines to the capital, but then gets a bit silly. Certainly worth a look though.

    ★★★★

    I really didn't expect much from this - I'm allergic to science, particularly physics, and I tend to prefer my pics to be fictional rather than of the bio variety. So this came as a slight revelation. The film made science stuff kind of interesting and the love story was beautifully done. Some of the shots were a real sight for sore eyes, too, and to top it all off Frank Leboeuf made a cameo appearance as a Swiss doctor, which was only confirmed when the cast was listed. Superb.

    I only watched it because I felt I had to (girlfriend had taken both this and Before Sunrise out).

    Aside from the almost unbearable jiving in the final scene, it was marginally less annoying; not by a great deal, but enough to make me think that signing off three hours to these two films wasn't a complete waste of a Sunday afternoon.

    This is the last time the girlfriend goes near my Lovefilm lists, though; tonight, I'm going to change the password.

    ★★★

    Quite good, but not a patch on Dead Man's Shoes or This is England. Bit short. Or perhaps that was the point? The Polish kid was very sweet.
