The Manila Lover

Johanna Pyykkö -Norway
2019 — Fiction — English subtitles — post@barbosafilm.no

A Norwegian man is in the Philippines with a beautiful woman. This is a tried and tested story and you know how that narrative goes. Not in this film though, as here, something completely original plays out. A thought provoking portrait of a middle aged man in crisis, which turns our prejudices upside down.
