The Fabulous Filipino Brothers - 2021 CAAMFest Capsule Review

The Capsule Movie: The Fabulous Filipino Brothers

The Director: Dante Basco

The Cast: Arianna Basco, Cheryl Tsai, Dante Basco, Darion Basco, Derek Basco, Dionysio Basco, Joe Jitsukawa, Liza Lapira, Solenn Heussaff, Tirso Cruz III

The Story: In the lead-up to a family wedding, four brothers experience shenanigans of a wide range, as captured in a series of vignettes.

The Review:
Dante Basco's directorial debut is a four part tale of brothers played by Basco himself and his real life brothers. The story is a deep dive into Filipino culture and family all wrapped around he brothers' own personal journeys, each of which is told in a fun, if uneven and kind of awkward way.
