A Nostalgic & Coming-of-Age Story: Thoughts on 100 Tula Para Kay Stella

One of the 12 films shown during the first-ever Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino organized by the Film Development Council of the Philippines is Jason Paul Laxamana’s 100 Tula Para Kay Stella. At first, I wasn’t interested in this entry. When I saw the trailer, I was a bit thrown off by the first two seconds where Bela Padilla (Stella) is channeling her inner rocker. There’s nothing wrong with that. The reason I dislike it is I’ve seen way too many films with that character during my college film days. But the moment the guy says that he has a speech defect I knew this film is going to offer something different. Advertisements
