Give me a bwreak
Let me take a pause before I present the conclusion of the study by exploring an issue that has been bothering me since I saw an episode of Hiram. For those who are not familiar of this soap opera (including me), this afternoon series stars Kris Aquino, Dina Bonnavie, Heart Evangelista and some other stars whose names I cannot recall.
It is not about Kris. It is not about Dina. It is not even about that Heart Evangelista whose face always reflects that of a suffering mater dolorosa.
If not for well-coiffed hair and fashionable dresses, I could say that she is the lady "na dala ang hinagpis ng mundo" with her eyes that are always ready to shed buckets of tears at a drop of a hat.
But it is not what made me wonder if there is something wrong with me or to the director or writer of the soap.
There is Geoffrey Eigenmann, who I believe is a son of Gina and Michael de Mesa, a grandson of Rosemarie and Eddie Mesa and nephew to Cherie and Mark.
Every time I see him, he is delivering kilometric dialogues about his pain,about lost love,about his sacrifice, blah,blah.
While he is mouthing his speaking lines, tears form in his beautiful eyes. The emotions run high as the lady partner delivers her tear jerking piece.
Now you see the young man soaked in tears as if he needs two aspirins to prevent heart attack.
Ang sakit ng panga ko. Ang sakit ng dibdib ko. Tigilan ninyo na ako.
Ako po iyan. That's my feeling while watching the drama unfolds.
In my experience with the boyz, I still have to find a guy who is going to share his innermost thoughts and feelings with you IN TEARS without the aid of eyemo.
Don't know. But the guys I met sure, admitted that they were hurt... they also felt depressed after a major quarrel but it takes time before they will allow anybody to probe beneath their macho exterior. They would not let you catch him agonize about how he takes the pain. Those are the men.
The director must have wanted to develop the young star to a dramatic actor that he asks him to forget realities of life.
Come on, direk, men are not supposed to cry; it is not their psyche.
