The Bet Collector2006

  • 3.9
Amy, the family matriarch, makes ends meet by running a small convenience store out of her home. In a struggling economy, customers are scarce and without the help of her husband or pregnant daughter, she is forced to supplement the family income by collecting bets for an illegal numbers game. In this starkly realistic narrative, director Jeffrey Jeturian presents a captivating portrait of a once-proud woman, haunted by memories of a dead son and hounded by the police in the midst of her fragile and lonely life as a Kubrador ("bet collector") on the streets of Manila.

The Philippines are an enigma to America, in spite of a long, complicated relationship between the two countries. I understand-- and like-- the country a wee bit more because of this movie.

Idea for movie was good. However the movie was slow moving, poorly edited, poor photography. Very little developement of character. Very disappointed.

Very realistic look into the lives of the poorer Manila peoples lives. Very heart wrenching at times.
