Moments in a Stolen Dream
(Kung mangarap ka't magising)

by Mike DE LEON


Joey, a bourgeois college student and dilettante, meets Anna, a pretty girl unhappily married who became a mother at too young an age. Joey is played by the up-coming star of Filipino cinema, Christopher de Leon (no relation to the filmmaker) and Anna by Hilda Koronel, the unforgettable Insiang of Brocka’s eponymous film. Moments in a Stolen Dream seems to be a light-hearted chronicle of student life marked by Western influence and intergenerational conflicts. Yet, under its kitsch paraphernalia and insipid photo-story atmosphere, the film slides towards a subtle melodrama, as the meeting between Joey and Anna is – even more than a dream – the moving but short-lived union of two wounded hearts.
