Bayaw Gets X

by: rddantes August 27, 2009 | 33 Comments |

The Paolo-Janvier starrer with lots of dick shots recently got an X rating from the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board [MTRCB]. Bayaw was scheduled for its commercial run starting on 2 September 2009 at the Robinsons Galleria and Ermita theaters but it seems this will be delayed for a bit as the producer, Climax Films tries to file for a reconsideration of the harsh order of rating by the MTRCB. The producer wants the movie to be shown in its integral version as was done in the Cinemalaya festival a month ago at the Cultural Center of the Philippines [CCP]. Hopefully, the MTRCB will reconsider and give the go-signal for the uncut version in its commercial showing.

    What do you expect – knowing the MTCRB hindi ito papasa. The movie was directed by Direk Monti, the controversial director of Sagwan so what could you expect. Honestly speaking the frontal nudity is not necessary for the said movie. I saw it twice when it was shown in CCP last month. Hindi maganda! Pilit lang ginagamit ang frontal nudity scene (Kuno!) ng mga pangunahing artista para mapag-usapan ang pelikula.

    the MTCRB is full of hypocrites. Mababawasan ba ng morality ng filipino or tataas ba ang immorality natin if this film wil be shown in its entirety? Outlet na nga lang ito among us middle class gays of our society to at least enjoy whatsoever with this film, even if this is trashy, to the mega-negative political and corruption issues in our country daily!

    tanong ko lang, makatotohanan ba ang mga ganitong scenario sa Philippines? Babae kasi ako at wala naman akong nababalitaan na kabaklaan na mga ganyang pangyayari sa Philppines. Baka di lang ako aware na may mga ganyang homo incidents na nangyayari, sana may makapagpalinaw, thanks!

    Ho-hum. Huwag na kasing piliting matawag na “art film” kung “soft porn” naman talaga. I have nothing against porn… JUST CALL IT WHAT IT IS!

    So sino’ng nagpakita ng mga titi nila? Sa mga nakapanood, i-describe nyo nga. Pati ba si Fresh Man Miguel?

    i need help from people who have seen the movie. me mga tanong po ako to help me decide whether to watch it or not. whether pilit or not ang nudity scenes, questions of fact lang po ang mga tanong ko dahil hindi po ako magpapanggap na artistic merits nito ang habol ko:

    1. yung mga scenes showing nudity, mabilis lang po na dinaanan ng camera (joash sa heavenly touch) or babad ang eksena (marco in walang kawala)? malayo po ang kuha ng kamera (joash in heavenly touch)or close up? madilim po ang eksena or maliwanag?

    2. sino-sino po ang nag frontal nudity?

    3. may kissing scenes po ba ang mga actors and if yes, mahaba (joash-paolo serrano in heavenly touch) or maiksi (harry and justin in parola) ang esksena? pa-twetums po ang kissing or maalab?

    4. are there explicit scenes and if yes, what do these explicit scenes consist of and who are the actors involved.

    maraming pong salamat. no need to watch the artsitic merits kasi po this could be very subjective and i will just judgeit on my own kapag napanood ko na.

    Ikaw naman ateh, ito na nga lang yung the only frontal ni Fafas Janvier sa movie, diniliman mo pa.

    In pernes, I enjoyed the movie. Bonus na lang yung forntal. Galing ng akting nina Fafas Paolo at Janvier. Pati notes nila umaakting. Ay! Yun nga lang, kinatay uli ni Manang La Guardia. KJ talag. Gusto, sila lang ang makakakita. If I know, tilam ever din sila.

    napanuod ko na yung movie, chaka talaga. hindi to art. walang kwenta ang story, halatang ang main goal lang ay magpakita ng nota at iTITIlate ang pink audience. another exploitative film. just like sagwan, it’s a soft porn flick na dapat straight to video release n lang, hindi na for public showing! di ba better naman yun sa mga ganyang movies. as if naman makakapagpalabas kayo ng libido ninyo sa public cinemas noh! at least sa dvd mapaupause ninyo pa ang mga eksenang nakabuyangyang ang nota since yun naman ang habol ninyo.

    Napanood ko ito sa CCP. May frontal si Paolo..ok lang. Si Janvier, meron din dito sa scene na naliligo sya..Pipihit sya jan dahil iniiwasan nyang mabasa ung brasong nasugatan sa kanya kaya tinutulungan sya ni Andrew sa paliligo..Makikita ang titi nya jan pagharap nya..Big time si Janvier at ang maganda, ahit ang bulbol nya..smooth ang titi nya

    i like the movie I have seen it na. bonus na lang ang frontal no

  17. i’v seen it, i like it, i think janvier did very well on his acting…

    at first medyo nahihilo ako sa habulan scenes pero yung mga twist at surreal scenes towards the end made up for it….

    a ‘better’ movie by monti

    oh, and did i say i love the ending too (kilig) 😉

    Thanks for the info. Kawawa pala si Andrew kung sumabay siya sa pagpapakita ng titi kay Janvier. Parang “Little Mn, Big Man” ni Altarejos. Hehe.

    I have seen the movie and I like it because of the compact narrative. Visually, it is also great because the director had a vision of a dark movie with tragedy all over as theme.

    sana nga makalusot ang movie sa mtrcb kasi di ko ito napanood noon sa ccp at gusto ko sya panoodin. makita ko sana ang kwan nina paolo at janiver.

    Whats all the fuzz over a 1 second “titi exposure”? Is that such a big deal? This is truly a land of hypocrisy! Is the MTRCB living in caves? Hello! In this age of internet and information access, kailangan pa ba natin ng MTRCB?

    Tama na ang pange-exploit sa mga artistang gustong sumikat. Mga balahurang directors. Kung gagawa din lang kayo ng movie na mga ganito gandahan nyo naman like Maurice with Hugh Grant or A Home at the End of the World with Colin Farrell etc etc at hindi yung mga ganitong mga cheap movies na halatang iniexploit ang mga artista.

    i think bading na rin yan si paolo rivero, puro gay themed movies na lang ginagawa nya, at andami na nyang naka torrid kiss at bed scene na hubo’t hubad na male actors. di kaya nila tinutuloy yon after takes? :))

  32. Sino ba pwedeng mag offer sa kin for indie movie?

    what’s wrong with the human body? it’s just a skin. can anyone from MTRCB and hypocrites people figure this out?
    Morality? physical body has nothing to do with morality. it’s a gift of nature.
    Folks, it’s time to change your views. Gone were the days where “titi”, “puke”, “kantutan” was labelled taboo…all these are just natural. part of being a “homo sapien”….think about this!
