Naniniwala si Direk Yam Laranas na malaki ang laban ni Anne Curtis na manalo ng acting award sa Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry na Aurora at ito raw talaga ang pinaka-wish niya para sa pelikula.
“Sa lahat ng wini-wish ko for the movie, next to making it the way I wanted it and the way I wan ted it para ma-entertain ’yung mga tao, my other big wish is for Anne to win best actress,” ang deklara ni Direk Yam sa presscon ng Aurora last Friday night.
Paliwanag ni Direk Yam, ang buong pelikula ay dinadala lang ng isang karakter at ito ang ikinaiba nito sa ibang MMFF entries.
“In all of the films that are out there as an entry, and again, of course, will all the biggest respect to the other actresses in the other entries, this is a movie, a kind of a big scope of a movie that there’s only one character that carries the entire film from start to finish. Isa lang, isa lang ’yung character na ’yun and that’s Anne.
“And that’s my biggest wish, that she wins the best actress,” pahayag pa ng critically-acclaimed director.
Para naman kay Anne, wala raw siyang ini-expect na anuman pagdating sa award.
“I don’t think whenever you do a film, you do it because you wanna win an award. I do it because I love to do films, I love acting. Getting an award, I think, it’s just a cherry on the top.
“Of course, you’d be thrilled to receive an award, ’di ba? But I don’t think you should go in there expecting ‘I’m gonna win an award,’” pahayag ni Anne.
Showing na ang Aurora sa Dec. 25 mula sa Viva Films at Aliud Entertainment.
