Melodrama Negra (2012)





MELODRAMA-NEGRA-Poster-jpg_075015This has its satisfying moments and unsurprising twists.

The three ghosts are somewhat stuck in limbo, thinking that they might be at a state of fulfilling a final purpose before they are taken away by Ate Shawie which seems to be a symbolism of another realm. They go into a journey of “visiting” the ones they’ve left. Along their journey they meet three college friends who are into anything recently considered popular and conjure into the usual problems involving family, friends, love and whathaveyou.

This dark comedy nearly sticks to the direct translation of it’s title.
