Christmas in April
A downside of having the Metro Manila Film Fest in December: we end up seeing non-Filipino movies set during Christmas when it’s already summer. The movie “Rent,” for example. And I’m pretty sure I saw “Love Actually” around this time two years ago, as well. On the big screen there’s snow, Santa costumes, and Christmas carols on the soundtrack. Outside it’s 32 degrees Celsius and inflatable pool toys are on display at SM. Good grief.
