While Ms. Sylvia Sanchez, her kids Arjo, Ria and Ms. Lorna Tolentino was in Cannes Film Festival last May, they were showcasing the various projects of Nathan Studios and figured, they would also look at different films from other outfits in the festival. They were a little intrigued about MONSTER because they literally couldn't get a seat for it during those days as people really flocked to the cinemas when this was shown. MONSTER's Director and Editor Hirokazu Kore-eda is regarded as Japan's Lino Brocka, so when a masterpiece like this comes out, the need for people to see it is automatic. So they did the next best thing instead, the got the rights to show this film in the Philippines so we all could get to watch it.
The critically acclaimed film already won Best Screenplay and the coveted Queer Palm for Palme d'Or in France. The story is about a kid who suddenly changed behavior, and the mother tried to find the truth what transpired at school. Although this looks like a horror film on face value, this is more of a drama piece with lead stars Sakura Ando, Eira Nagayama, and Soya Kurokawa. Several stars attended the advanced screening at SM Megamall where this will be shown. Here's Ms. Sylvia Sanchez and Ms. Lorna Tolentino who will tell you more about how they became producers for this particular release in the Philippines:
The film will be shown in cinemas October 11th, so make sure you head on to theaters to see this masterpiece. See why it's been seen by countless people in the international film festival, and why they loved it! Again, this is under Nathan Studios Inc. and Ms. Lorna Tolentino.
