    Quote:
    This quasi-sequel to The Perfumed Nightmare is not so widely known as Tahimik’s debut and yet is animated by a similar playfulness and resourcefulness and equally as inventive. Though shot immediately after “Nightmare”, “Yoyo” was only completed after Turumba, and, as such is usually considered as Tahimik’s third feature.Read More »

    Newly-widowed Marilou inherits from her husband the town’s only barbershop–a business that has been passed down by generations of men in his family. With no other means of support, she musters the courage to run the barbershop. But–as to be expected–she fails to attract any customers. But a touching act of kindness she extended to Rosa, a prostitute who works in the town brothel, leads to an unexpected opportunity. Rosa, who now considers Marilou a friend, urges her prostitute friends to pressure their male clientele into patronizing Marilou’s barbershop. The men have no choice but to grudgingly oblige out of fear that Rosa will expose their infidelity to their wives.Read More »

    Quote:
    In a time when the concept of divorce does not exist, much less imagined possible, we find Marilou (Vilma Santos), a planetarium guide who decides to pursue an affair with Emil (Christopher De Leon), a college teacher separated from his wife. They seem perfect for each other and soon decide to move in together.

    Their once happy affair turns sour as Marilou slowly discovers the real Emil – a chauvinistic, domineering, and emotionally abusive man who dictates everything to her: from how she should act and manage her life to the most inconsequential details of running their house. They soon find themselves in an on-again, off-again relationship, with Marilou going as far as laying a let’s-meet-only-three-times-a- week rule to protect herself.Read More »
