Critique Paper: War is a Tender Thing (Final Draft)
19 December 2014

A Greater Heroism All is fair in love and war, most people would say. Someone in love and someone in battle are both willing to go through great lengths to come to a turning point. In War is a Tender Thing, director Adjani Guerrero Arumpac, through her mother, demonstrates how love in the midst of war is able to bring about what Emily Thorne refers to as “an undying devotion to a cause greater than one’s self, and a moral duty to see a journey through its absolute completion.”
Speaking as a teenage girl who knows little about what’s really going on in Mindanao and how people are coping with the hostilities, feuds and wars, I may never fully understand how someone can deal with such tribulations. I may have experienced struggles myself but theirs is completely different, especially when it has to do with the coexistence betwixt love and war.
Love and war, these are the two things in this world that have a gigantic impact on one’s existence. They have the power to either build up or tear down your life. In the case of Adjani Arumpac’s parents, it’s both. How they choose to react to the situation is what determines their destiny.
Adjani’s mother shows indifference to a number of political issues in the beginning. Her character is stoic. The way she answers her daughter’s questions suggests she doesn’t care about any of it at all.
The film also introduces that Adjani’s mother is Christian while her father is a Muslim. For Christians, the most important ideal is “to love your enemies and die in the pursuit of bringing them love”. On the other hand, for Muslims, it’s fighting the enemies of Islam and dying as a martyr of Allah. Sacrifice is an important ideal in both religions but its meaning in each religion is completely opposed. “A Christian can never be in love with a Muslim”, she says as she talks about the conflict
