Duma (DVD)

I encountered this movie two years ago on http://www.pinoydvd.com/. Many of the forumers like it because it is heartfelt and it is carefully written. I decided to buy it in Manila last March just to see if it is memorable.

The movie has a very solid plot and the actors are convincing. The cheetah is not CGI so it does what a trained cheetah does--hit its targets.

I really like the relationship of the father and son and I wish it was explored more deeply. It felt really real but it could have been more dramatic.

Is it a good movie? Yes, indeed. Is it memorable? I am afraid not. There are better children's movies out there.
