Singer-Comedian Angeline Quinto Does A Serious Drama Role In Cinema One Filmfest Pangasinense Entry, 'Malinac Ya Labi'

AFTER DOING comedies in “Beauty in a Bottle”, “Four Sisters and a Wedding” and “That Thing Called Tanga Na”, singer-actress Angeline Quinto now tries doing drama in “Malinak Ya Labi”, the directorial debut of Abdel Langit that’s an entry in the Cinema One Originals Filmfest that starts showing on November 14.

“Mahirap yung role hindi lang because it’s drama kundi it was filmed using the Pangasinan language or Pangasinense,” says Angeline. “Yung title naming ‘Malinac Ya Labi’ means ‘Silent Night’. Galing ang family namin from Pangasinan kaya familiar na ko sa words nila, naiintindihan ko yung ibang words, but I cannot speak them fluently. But for the movie, nag-aral talaga ako ng Pangasinense and our director, Abdel Langit, taught me how to pronounce them correctly.”

What’s her role in the movie? “I’m a teacher here, seryoso, may pagka-loner, na malayo sa’kin sa totoong buhay. May nahukay na bangkay ng isang bata in the story at doon magsisimula ang complications sa movie. Si Allen Dizon naman na kapareha ko, isang sundalo na niligawan ako kahit may asawa na pala siya. First indie film ko ito kaya abangan nyo dahil naiiba siya. But after this, balik ako sa romantic comedy na ‘Never Been Kissed, Never Been Touched’ with Jake Cuenca na ginawa namin sa Regal Films, under the direction of Joel Lamangan.”

Mother Lily tells us they intend to release Angeline’s movie on November 30 but they want to change its title first. “Napanood ko na, nakakatawa si Angeline,” says Mother Lily. “But we want a new title na mas bagay sa young audiences today.”
