When Timawa Meets Delgado Movie Review

I learned about “When Timawa Meets Delgado” when I saw its movie poster on my landlady’s door. Apparently, she is the Production Manager of this movie. When we got to talk, she told me that it was shown in Iloilo last January and is currently showing in Robinson’s Mall here in Manila. She eventually invited me to watch it. Just this week, she came knocking on my door and gave me a DVD copy of their movie, “When Timawa Meets Delgado.” I only got to watch it last Thursday.

The movie is an independent film that tackles about students taking up Nursing. The film showed that majority of nursing students were forced by their parents and peers. They were even attracted by the large remuneration by working abroad. The film also showed that some nursing students are second courses meaning they shifted to Nursing from a different course.

The film evolved with two main characters, Timawa and Delgado. Both artists but suddenly wanted to study Nursing because they failed in chosen fields. Timawa is a poet even won acclaim for his poem, “The Pig”, while Delgado is a videographer for events like birthdays and burials.

The movie was actually boring. It ran for about one and a half hours but it seemed forever. The only saving grace for the film is the wonderfully written poems narrated by who knows who. I even find the movie incomplete. If only the movie tacked about the life of a nursing student and nurses, it could have been interesting to watch.

If you like this post, buy me a cup of coffee.

hmm never heard of this movie.. pro that is the sad truth about nursing studs.. akala kase ng mga magulang pag nag nursing at napasa board kikita ka na agad ng malaki.. hindi nila alam na may ibat ibang klaseng exam pa na uubos ng malaking halaga..

Make or Break
