JELSON BAY AND SUE RAMIREZ, THE NEWEST PAIR ON NETFLIX! TO LOOK OUT

THE new Filipino movie, Finding Agnes is now headlining on Netflix.

 

Starring Jelson Bay of Ang Pangarap Kong Holdap and Sue Ramirez (female lead of films such as Cuddle Weather, Dead Kids, & The Girl Allergic to Wifi.)

 

The movie follows the story of the successful businessman Brix, who was left behind by his mother, Agnes, when he was just a young boy. Twenty years later, he discovers that during those years, his mother had been in Morocco.

 

He travels to the North African country to piece together his estranged mother’s life story and there, he meets her adopted daughter, Cathy, who joins him in his journey.

 

Jelson as the serious businessman, Brix Finding Agnes marks the directorial debut of director Marla Ancheta. Despite having Bay on its lead, this film is far from a typical goofy comedy flick. It is in fact, a heartwarming movie that explores bonds with family, friends, and other people in general. But this is not to say that it didn’t have its comedic moments.

 

In an interview post in the clickthecity.com Director Ancheta picked Bay who is a known come- dian, play such a serious role, here’s what she has to say:

 

“Sabi nga kapag komedyante, magaling magpatawa, eh since balanced tayo, magaling din yan magpaiyak. Kumbaga hindi lang natin nakikita pero kung tutuusin, minsan mas malalim ang hugot ng mga komedyante.”

 

According to Bay, when he first heard about the offer for the film, he initially thought it was a prank. Still, he was happy when he really got the role, despite it being a challenging one for him.

 

“I’m a natural comedian so kailangan kong pulutin lahat ng pain pabalik para lang maintindhan… kailangan mong balikan [sila] ulit,” Bay shared.

 

 

In his journey to Morocco, Brix finds the bed & breakfast his mother had once managed. Here is where he meets his mother’s adopted daughter Cathy, who has become the manager of the place.

 

According to Sue Ramirez, what she liked most about her role is that her character is just filled with passion in running the bed & breakfast. As for its challenging part, it was playing the role of someone who grew up in a different country.

 

“Yung pinakamalaking adjustment siguro for me was learning the culture,” said Sue. “[Dapat alamin ko] kung ano yung mga mali atsaka yung mga tamang gawin, kasi for different countries iba-iba yan eh, and you have to respect yung culture ng bawat country that you go to.”

 

Often standing as backdrops in the film are the empty landscapes of Morocco which worked perfectly in this film that tells about isolation and soul-searching. Of course, it also gave us a glimpse of the country’s people and their culture.

 

Finding Agnes is a heartwarming and thought-provoking film about people searching for family, or for themself.

 

“Either family yan, kaibigan, katrabaho, kahit sino sila, wag natin silang lagpasan. Wag natin piliing mag-isa kasi sa buhay kailangan mo yan eh. Kailangan mo sila. So don’t choose to be alone. Nandyan tayong lahat, we can help each other.” The director explained. (ROHN ROMULO)
