Tuhog: Not just another bold film
() - January 18, 2001 - 12:00am
Who says bold films cannot become brilliant classics? Not during this turn of the millennium when moviegoers are intelligent enough to discern class from crap.

Jeffrey Jeturian’s latest film Tuhog is a good example of how a bold-themed movie that delves on the often-considered taboo issue of forced, incestuous sex can rise to a sophisticated level that combines cinematic and entertainment value.

Tuhog
is bold. With Klaudia Koronel and Ina Raymundo showing not only their physical assets but their newly-tapped acting depth and propensity, Tuhog will prove that what is steamy and sizzling on the big screen can translate into something that can affect a thinking audience.

Those who have seen Klaudia and Ina’s other movies will be in for a big surprise because in the film, both actresses have shed all inhibitions, including their see-through undergarments, to make their innocent characters as real as life itself.

Klaudia and Ina play virginal barrio lasses who become victims of a sex-starved, highly-egoistic, psychologically-imbalanced grandfather who subjects the women in his family to his lustful actions.

Tuhog
is brave. The film is a brave attempt to tell an otherwise taboo story in a most realistic, simplistic entertaining way, combining the elements of documentary and cinema in letting the character’s stories flow in a most natural way.

Tuhog
dares present a slice of life in its most potent, graphic form.

With promising director Jeffrey Jeturian, and Armando Lao as scriptwriter, the film gathers a most brilliant cast. Aside from Klaudia and Ina. Jaclyn Jose and Irma Adlawan are in the cast. They play helpless mothers whose destinies are controlled by their brain-sick father.

Playing the incestuous father are Dante Rivero and Nante Montreal, who give interesting interpretations of their roles.

Shot entirely in the picturesque barrios of San Miguel, Bulacan, Tuhog is touted as the first important film of the year of the snake –thanks to the collective minds of producer Lily Monteverde, Jeturian and his talented production and technical staff.
