Ben & Sam

Ben & Sam is a 2010 Filipino indie film, directed by Mark Shandii Bacolod and starring Ray An Dulay, Jess Mendoza, Micah Munoz, Ana Abad Santos and Tara Cabaero. The movie is about two campus kings who are in love.

Ben is haunted by painful memories of his abusive father, and is suffering even more at present due to his increasingly eccentric mother. He is eventually toughened by this condition. Sam, meanwhile, is still grieving the murder of his activist boyfriend. Both boys turn to recreational activities to forget their painful precedents; Ben becomes involved in basketball, while Sam takes up dancing.

Although Ben is surrounded by friends, he is unhappy, until a deep emotional connection and mutual admiration brings Ben and Sam together. Although Ben is confused, Sam is persistent and sincere, and their liaison eventually blossoms into something deeper.

  9. Finally, a gay-themed movie that makes sense and gives justice to the meaning of love - without necessarily alluding to a 'normal' man & woman relationship.

    Thanks to this site and to the maker of this film.

    Another masterpiece that showcases that when the Filipino wants to do good, it actually does better.

  21. I am Lance from the UK. I must submit that amongst all filipino indie films that I have seen, I LOVE this! So real, so unique, so sweet, etc. Masterpiece indeed! I am very hopeful that this will be recognised and awarded internationally. Beautiful gay love story!

    1. i do agree with you lance..the movie is really an eye opener to everyone. love conquers all..:) this is the real meaning of awesomeness..

  22. Very well presented. I have to agree with most of what the people said here, it's a delectable movie. It encompasses every real pieces of what true Gay life means.

    P.S.
    My tears fell down when Ben was in the class. He leaned to his left to view Sam's chair. Ben's arm reached over as if Sam's there to be hugged. whew.

  26. very informative...it helps in widening the horizons of an individual and at the same time touches our hearts.. it widens the imagination and way of judging one's self and identity... not just that, it shows how should we accept what is in front of us.. to be realistic and not more of an idealistic type... its not just a typical gay themed movie... im looking for more indie films like this..
    KUDOS to the people behind it..

    1. there is so many sugar out there who will keep on resisting and destroying this kind of relationship. we must know how to defend ourselves and be tough enough to face ourselves to anyone.

      Delete
    2. but in the end sugar had been still the friend of Ben and Sam.. un ngalang yun babaeg umarte msyadong OA and bungagera, but still she is good in acting..

  33. i think they are not both gay per se rather they are bisexual.. homo and bi are different from each other.
    btw, the story was terrific.. thumbs up!! another outstanding filipino masterpiece..

  36. i thought twice to watch this indie film when i saw it. i told myself, its just another trashy movie which caters so many sex scenes and bad acting. but im glad i gave it a chance to see. I think this is one of the most beautiful storyline i have ever seen so far in the philippine movie industry. The story is well narrated and delivered to the audience clearly. I was moved by it personally. I could not help myself not to to think of my bf while watching this. I felt the anxiety, worries, and even happiness of ben in the movie. that's how i experienced them exactly. Now that, we are in the midst of complications, this movie strengthen my love to my bf. That i really love him and i want him beside me forever. My relationship with him means a lot for me. To the staff and crew, to the actors, the director, the writer, i congratulate all of you for a job well done. i appreciated your movie very much. you left a smile on my face, tears in my eyes that signifies love and happiness.

  41. what a great indiefilm even if i just brows it i skip some scene but in my mind i had watch the movie the full scene the actors and actres are good there are no wondering what is he doing or what is she doing the story line of the video was full chunck of lessons just try to reflect it part by part we will understand what is the story is all about so i encourage to all blogers and directors to continue to post a movie like this this movie deserves a standing ovation and a award in cinemlaya to the director and to the one that post this movie a job well done :-)

  46. Great indie film...A wake up call to everyone na sa katotohanan ay mangayayari...ipinakita ang lahat ng tamang dating ng storya na pawang hango sa katotohanan ng buhay...na minsan makikita mo ang totoong ikaw...at ano pa man sila as long na marunong silang magmahal at suporta ng bawat magulang...kaya't wag pag alipusta kung ano man sila sapagkat lahat ng tao may karapatang magmahal...2 thumbs up and standing ovation for this indie movie...

  50. ang ganda sana ng film, ang ganda ng story

    kaso may mga hindi inexplain mabuti,

    E.G. may WALANG KWENTANG COMPETITION, di masyadong inelaborate kung ano ung competition na un.

    but as a whole, its good...

    DI NAMAN SILA GALIT SAYO NA BAKLA KA, GALIT SILA DAHIL NAGSINUNGALING KA.


    PANALO!
