Fable of the Fish 2011

A risky and also rewarding new work, Fable of the Fish comes from acclaimed Filipino wunderkind Adolfo Alix Jr., director or co-director of over 10 features since 2006, including the acclaimed ADELA (6th HKAFF). Impoverished, childless and living in a garbage dump, Miguel (Bembol Roco) and Lina (Cherry Pie Picache) become instant celebrities when Lina miraculously becomes pregnant. But Lina gives birth to a fish, which increases her celebrity but leaves Miguel humiliated and the couple at odds. What follows is an illuminating examination of how this unusual family copes and compromises in the face of a modern-day miracle.
