The Film’s Comic Form




Bright colors – red, blue and yellow
Music – lively rhythm
Characters – a pleasant contrast in figure (thin vs. fat),
skin colors and personalities.
Linguistic – an interesting mixture of English (e.g.
“confidence,” “for special occasion”) and Filipino.
Manuel and Dado: Their Desires
Manuel:
 “no Christine, no
Celia, …all by himself.”
 Romantic, wanting to be
able to relax in the
evening and to have a girl.
 Simple desires: steak,
sofa …
Dado:
 family back home, lonely
 Realistic Concerns: does not
want to be imprisoned, or
deported.
 Juggle between his girl friend,
Anna, and his wife and
children.
The Filipinos



Buddies, knowing each other since high school
willing to share (steak dinner) and compromise
Dado – stimulated to strive harder to scare away the dog
Manuel and Dado

Their Fear and Difficulties

Manuel and Dado: Missing the curfew 3 times, being fired
and deported.



Bribing “the boss” (guard of the factory) with beetle nuts to
get in.
Celia: being used sexually by her employer. 41:00
Anna: haven’t got a break for two months; lonely like
Dado.
Their Dignity & Adaptability
They are presented as individuals—not just in terms of
their roles.
 Anna: Just want to be happy



Call the policeman and the “boss” dummy or idiot
