Finally! Today, I can now say that I have seen a Lav Diaz film. Since
his multi-awarded "Batang West Side" in 2001, Mr. Diaz has built a name
directing artistic opuses that run much much longer than usual feature
films, usually more than five hours. His longest was "Evolution of a
Filipino Family" in 2004, which clocked at a whopping 11 and a half
hours! Running for about 4 hours, "Norte" is fondly referred to as Mr.
Diaz's "short" film, and therefore the most accessible of all his
"Norte" is set in the northern province of Ilocos Norte. Fabian Viduya
(Sid Lucero) was a topnotch law student who quit law school because of
his highfalutin philosophical ideas of a society beyond existentialism
and anarchy. Joaquin (Archie Alemania) and Eliza (Agnes Bayani) were a
poor couple whose dreams of building their own eatery business are
dashed when Joaquin suffers a leg injury and they fell deep into debt.
The fates of these three people intersected when a heinous crime was
committed in their small town. Since then, these three lives were
thrown into a major maelstrom. These events happened in just in the
first hour, the rest of the next three hours follows what happens to
each of these three characters following that cruelly fateful day.
I will not pretend and say that I did not feel the four hours. I did
feel the length of the film with those static shots that seemed to be
showing nothing in particular or the very slow telling of events with
several details that seemed like they would have been edited out in
usual film. However, each of these scenes would usually precede a scene
of big importance, building up the suspense very effectively.
If we complain that there is no character development in mainstream
film, in this film, there is not shortage of that. We will get to see
how the events shaped Fabian, Joaquin and Eliza as they were caught in
their consequences. However, for a super-complex character like Fabian,
the four hours was not even enough to get to know his innermost core
that drove him to do the things he did. Fabian is a big question mark
up to his very last scene.
Sid Lucero got wrung through the wringer for his role as Fabian. You'll
admire him. You'll pity him. You'll hate him. This is such a complex
role and Lucero was more than up to the task. "Norte" is his film. It
was his actions that throw the other characters' lives around.
Angeli Bayani has taken over roles that would probably been given to
younger Ms. Nora Aunor. Even if her character barely talked, it was her
eyes, her face that talked to us. Her scenes with Archie Alemania are
tearjerkers without words nor music to build up the moment. Her back
was even turned to us. Yet the emotion was so deeply felt. There was
also that scene where she was walking with her kids at the crossroads,
and following that, a scene with her kids over a ledge -- she can
really convey tension that her director requires.
Archie Alemania's character development was rather straight-forward and
he played the character very sympathetically. Mae Paner was the usurer
Magda, such a hateful character you will feel her effect even if she
was only seen in the first hour. Soliman Cruz was another hateful
character Wakwak seen in the third hour. That scene where he was
singing "O Holy Night" was so insidiously sinister.
This film is not for everyone. Not everyone will have the patience for
it. Not everyone will have the time for it. However, for those who do
invest their time with this, you will see that this was a film of
artistic excellence. The innovative camera angles make mundane
household items and rustic scenes look and feel different. This could
be your best chance to watch a Lav Diaz film and immerse yourself in
the work of a director whose name is already lined up with National
Artists for film Brocka and Bernal.
