Movie Review: Captive

"Captive, Even Choice Is Not an Option" was a film directed by Brillante Ma Mendoza which is an adaptation of the Dos Palmas incident which is the kidnapping of two US missionaries by the Abu Sayyaf Group that happened in 2001. The film was starred by Isabel Huppert, a French actress who has appeared in different movies, she plays the role of Therese Burgoine, a French national and a volunteer social worker for a non-government organization based in Palawan. The film is quite intriguing because the story is like a documentation of what had happened in the Dos Palmas incident, though, 25 percent of the film consists of fictitious characters and places.

The movie itself is more of an informative type of movie that let viewers knows the sense of what actually happens when an individual is held captive. There are also some other elements that are shown in the film to give significant or meaning like the mythical bird Sarimanok. Aside from these the film also showcases belief and rituals.

According to some who have watch and made their critics already about the movie, it is something out of the ordinary. For me the movie is informative and linear. It focuses on its purpose.

Other casts of the movie are Sid Lucero, Angel Aquino, Ronnie Lazaro, Raymond Bagatsing, Rustica Carpio, Maria Isabel Lopez, Mon Confiado, Mercedes Cabral, Kathy Mulville, Timothy Mabalot and Coco Martin. The film will be shown in theaters nationwide on Sept. 5.
