Missing the Diamond Star


I was able to catch Persona on CinemaOne with Maricel Soriano. Tamang-tama kakatapos lang yung Federer-Nadal Wimbledon championship. Talo si Nadal! Had to switch channel after seeing Federer in white champion's jacket habang nakashorts!Sagwa!
Maricel's interview with Direk Wen Deramas was entertaining. Nakakaaliw din yung edited clips ng iba't ibang pelikula ng ating Norma. I still couldn't believe that I was able to work with one of the best actresses in Philippine Cinema. She prepares for her role and studies the script by heart.
I still couldn't forget the experience everytime I see her walk towards the set for a take. She has this mesmerizing, gleaming superstar aura but when she steps right into the frame, she gently pulls down her yaya-costume-blouse... simpleng hatak lang... and then MAGIC!...she becomes Norma the yaya! Amazing! I will never forget the experience.

CinemaOne celebrates this July with a Maricel Soriano, Ang Natatanging Diamond Star Filmfest.
Nuod tayong lahat and be mesmerized!

Thanks also for all the IY bloggers! 500 hits for its first week! Have a great week everyone!

Sa Cinema One, makikita ang ibat ibang mukha ni Maricel. Iba iba ang hitsura sa bawat pelikula.

I have to stay late at night even madaling araw na dito sa Saudi para lang mapanood ang mga lumang movies niyang hindi ko napanood.

i wholly agree with you direk, kakaiba talaga ang aura ng diamond star in person, ang luminous nya, sabi ko nga sa kasama kong maricelian, para syang aparisyon! haha :)

i was also able to witness, albeit briefly, that bit of Diamond Star magic you described in your entry, when she flawlessly transforms into her character as the cameras start rolling. ang galing nga. walang kapantay!

i'm also aware na featured sya sa cinema one this week and the next, kaya lang wala akong cable sa dorm so, ayun. happy watching na lang sa nyong lahat :D

ang ganda naman nung picture, is that a movie still? or candid lang?

Napanood ko ang Nanay-nanayan episode ng The Correspondents kagabi.. tindi. Maraming yaya ang kawawa at mas malungkot at complicated ang buhay.

Maiintidihan mo rin kung bakit minsan mas matimbang pa sa iba sa kanila ang kanilang alaga kesa tunay nilang anak.

Direk kung napanood mo ang The Correspondents, ganun ba katindi ang mga eksena kasi nadala ako sa episode ng The Correspondents.

hi renz!medyo tail-end na ang nabutan ko nung Correspondents' Nanaynanayan. iba pa rin ang documentary feature kaysa sa paggawa ng pelikula. Mga totoong mga tao,lugar,pangyayari ang tinutuunan ng dokumentaryo habang ang pelikula tulad ng Inang Yaya ay mix ng totoong karanasan at kathang isip. Mahirap icompare ang dalawa dahil iba ang approaches nila sa paglalarawan ng buhay.

I am not any big fan of movie actors/actresses and not really a movie goer. But when I watch a movie starring Maricel, I am really awed, moved and touched. I think she's the only one that makes me believe the character she portrays.
