Chikkaness Review: Baybayin - an accomplished masterpiece and moving characterization that deserves moviegoers attention




“Baybayin” is lensed with spectacular cinematography and featuring a pair of winning performances from Assunta and Alessandra de Rossi.  It tells a grand story of two sisters who fell in love to the same deaf/mute man with “Baybayin” (an ancient Palawan script) as its means of communication. 

The characterization of Alban (Assunta) and Alba (Alessandra) along with Bagtik (Adrian Sebastian) are filled with real moments and genuine emotion. Their eyes swept emotions that filled the absence of voice in expressing their love for each other. 

The pleasures of “Baybayin” are all over the film -- the landscapes, the shots of aquatic life, the moving musical score -all of which would fit neatly into an Animal Planet layout. Solito did a superb job in establishing the mood and atmosphere of the small town in Palawan. And the HD experience made this more appealing that this could pass for a commercial movie release. 

This second installment of Solito’s Palawan trilogy is a topnotch higher than “Busong.” What more on its third and last installment? 

"Baybayin" is indeed an accomplished masterpiece and moving characterization that deserves moviegoers attention.
