Philippines, 2008
Drama

Synopsis

An eight-hour meditation on the maddening persistence of sadness in this world, divided into three parts following a prostitute, a pimp and a nun who wander the countryside.

Our take

An untold number of persons have disappeared in the Philippines over the years, before, during and after the Marcos dictatorship. Melancholia is devoted to the grief and search for meaning over such disappearances, told across a vivid array of Philippine society.
