Movie: Mamarazzi

I. Synopsis

The movie opens focusing on Violy’s everyday life as a manager/make-up artist at her very own funeral parlor named Funeraria Langit; To Die For. It shows how she manages and handles every customer’s desire and almost crazy request for their deceased love ones such as doing a make-over on a dead gay, comforting an old woman who’s crying over the coffin of her husband on the age of twenties calling him “babe” and making a cadaver smile. The scene was cut when the maid called Violy because of Dingdong (AJ Perez+) who again gets imprisoned because of trouble. She gets Dingdong out of jail and decided to go home riding their business’ hearse, which made Dingdong decide to just go home walking. This opens to another scene with Mandy (John Lapuz), a baranggay captain and Violy’s best friend, as they walk to the town hall, discussing Dingdong’s behavior. On the other hand, Violy sends her advice and tip to Strawberry (Andi Eigenman) who dreams to be a popular figure skater and even say “go skate somewhere else” to a skater who blocks Strawberry’s way. Unfortunately, Strawberry loses her balance and falls down, making the overreacting mother to help her out of the rink and protect her from Strawberry’s detractors. On the parlor, Violy reprimands her staffs about their business and explaining how people made their life end easier and even mentioning their slogan “Habang may Patay, May Pag-asa”. Witty and clever Peachy(Andi Eigenman), Strawberry’s twin sister, then came home and discussed why she came late.

She then uses her charm to her mother so that she can have enough money to buy a new make-up set then left. Violy noticed Dingdong and tell him where he’s going, when Strawberry revealed that he’ll be courting a girl, Violy then offered their hearse as a ride and Kalachuchi flowers as a gift saying “Mabango na may meaning pa!” making Dingdong left immediately.

Dingdong came and gave flowers to Mimi as a gift for their tutorial sessions on Chemistry. Suddenly, Mimi’s boyfriend who is involved in Showbiz industry came cutting their “so called Mutual understanding.” Back to Violy’s house, Peachy is seen busy making herself beautiful in front of the mirror. Violy then walked in and consulted Peachy for her teacher’s call regarding Peachy kissing her boyfriend in the locker room. Peachy then said that her teacher’s accusation is wrong explaining that the boy is not her boyfriend. Peachy then explained that her ex’s are as usual not smart and not suited for her, telling her mom not to worry for she’s born a genius. On the other hand, Dingdong, Peachy and Strawberry looked for their mom asking questions where the hell their dad is. Peachy researched Violy’s alibi of their father involve in a shipwreck last April 7, 1996 which is proven to be false. Violy then fixed herself and said that it is not a ship but a submarine, she explained that it might not be reported and not to rely on the internet because she is older than it.
