ⓘ On Vodka, Beers and Regrets

On Vodka, Beer and Regrets is a 2020 Philippine romantic drama film directed and written by Irene Villamor and starring Bela Padilla and JC Santos. A story about an alcoholic 20-something who keeps self-sabotaging, and a guy who makes a valiant effort to help her. The film was theatrically released on February 5, 2020.

                                     

1. Plot

Jane Bela Padilla was a successful actress as a child and through her teens. However, after being involved in a scandal with another actor, her career had been on the wane. Since then, she would always take refuge under the influence of a bottle of alcohol, which caused her to make destructive decisions in love and career.

One day, while having another drinking binge in a bar, she was noticed and befriended by Brisom band frontman Francis who then helped her get through that night, and several other nights to follow.

Jane was drunk practically the whole movie, maybe 95% from Scene 1. She was catty, unprofessional, reckless, annoying -- very unlikable. The scene of Jane with a bat in the parking lot was suffused with imminent danger. The scene of Jane with a broken shard of wine glass exquisitely dripped with hopeless desperation cinematographer Pao Orendain at his best. That painfully explicit song "F**king Circumstance" by Pappel was the perfect song to accompany Janes downward spiral. Amid all that emotional muck, Bela Padilla still managed to shine through with her raw, dedicated performance, bringing out Janes vulnerability and humanity to fore.

                                     

2. Production

According to Bela Padillia, she calls Irene on the phone and told her that she wanted to make a movie again with her. This will serve as their third collaboration in a film after Camp Sawi and Meet Me in St. Gallen.
