Trivia

Lav Diaz was inspired by the Leo Tolstoy story "God Sees the Truth, But Waits", first published in 1872. Diaz then wrote the treatment for Ang babaeng humayo (2016) in two days and sent it to lead actress Charo Santos-Concio and the film's producer, Ronald Arguelles. An hour after he sent the email, Concio said yes. [CNN Philippines, Sept. 2016] See more »

too little to impress
6 November 2016 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Seen at the Viennale 2016: No, this movie is not too long. Don't be afraid of the many minutes. Lav Diaz knows how to entertain the movie buff. Most of the action takes place in the night and is filmed in black and white. I wondered, whether the use of b/w-film for the night scenes in the small village streets was a good idea. To my feeling the nights are darker in color. Anyway, too less story for the long-timed frames. The drama was not catchy enough for me to stay within the story. The long-timed frames provided (to me) too much time. So my mind wandered away from the movie and came back again and wandered away again and so on. This is okay with certain abstract movies, when your mind is set free with ideas and inspiration. Ang Babaeng Humayo did (to me) not provide this inspiration. Only the end is non-real enough to start dreaming. But there the movie ends abruptly. I saw it yesterday. And already today this nearly 4 hours are nearly forgotten. Left me unimpressed. But, praise to Lav Diaz! He wants and he dares. And for sure, I will go and see his next movie.
