Written By Nikki Mendz on Thursday, July 18, 2013 | 7:42 AM

In English, Tuhog means to pierce through or fasten together with a skewer, like a barbeque stick holding pieces of meat together for roasting. In the movie, the characters of Eugene Domingo (Fiesta, a bus conductor), Enchong Dee (Caloy, a student) and Leo Martinez (Tonio, a retiree) are literally fastened together (tinuhog) when they are pierced through a giant steel bar in a freak bus accident.

Tuhog is showing in cinemas nationwide starting July 17 2013. It is also available for viewing online on TFC.tv from July 17 - September 17. 2013 through pay-per-movie. The movie was submitted as an entry to the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival, but was excluded in the 8 official films for showing in December.

Due to a road rage between two buses, an accident occurs which puts the lives of its passengers in jeopardy. But the ones greatly affected by such event are a middle-aged woman named Fiesta (Eugene Domingo), an old and retired family patriarch Tonio (Leo Martinez), and a lad named Caloy (Enchong Dee). These three people are pierced through a single steel bar – a dangerous situation that even their doctors find hard to solve. But even before this unfortunate circumstance, these three have their share of ill-fated lives.

Fiesta is a bus barker of Janus Express whose life revolves around taking care of her demented father Carding (Noel Trinidad). Being a dedicated daughter to Carding turns her into a lonely spinster that scares men away with her fierce and masculine demeanor. Until she meets Nato (Jake Cuenca), a new driver hired by Janus Express that eventually wins her heart. But just when she thought that she’ll finally have her far-fetched happiness with Nato, things start to get complicated when she finds out Nato’s painful secret.

Tonio is a retired old man who after getting past his prime and being a refuge to his family, now wants to fulfill his shrugged off dream of becoming a baker. He decides to use his pension to fulfill this dream. At first, his own family is skeptical about it but he eventually gets their support along with his friends to make it happen. Now, it’s all up to him to make this work and find out if this is a dream worth all that risk.

Caloy is a young man preserving his virginity for his girlfriend Angel (Empress Schuck). They have made an agreement to give up their virginity to each other and only to each other. However, Caloy gets challenged to remain faithful to this pact because of the difficulties of the long distance relationship she shares with Angel. Moreover, he starts to doubt the loyalty of Angel to him and to their relationship because of a guy named Jun Rey who is seemingly getting involved with his girlfriend.

Through one horrible mishap, the lives of Fiesta, Tonio, and Caloy get tied together. Who will be given another chance to live and make things right? And whose life is really bound to end?

Movie Review:

Tuhog has a unique plot that does not usually happen everyday. Although it is possible to happen in real life, a freak accident wherein the lives of three different people are at stake, with the dilemma that only of them may be saved, couldn't be an ordinary occurrence that anyone would ever want to take place. This makes it an interesting concept that moviegoers can ponder about. The characterization of each person involved and the respective actor portraying the role, is also worth looking at. Just basing on the preview, the performances of Eugene Domingo, Leo Martinez, Noel Trinidad, Enchong Dee, Jake Cuenca and Empress Schuck are all a pleasure to watch. The irony of mixing comedy with tragedy and the blending of ordinary lives with an extraordinary event is something new in Philippine movie viewing.
