“My Little Bossings” is a movie whose time has come. Ever since the project was bared, the public has been counting months, waiting with bated breath how the precocious Ryzza Mae Dizon will jive with the decorous James “Bimby” Aquino Yap, Both charming and intelligent, but one street smart and the other “socially elite,” it’s an intriguing pairing indeed.
As shooting progressed and as the two kids warmed up to each other and established rapport on and off screen, it became clear that “My Little Bossings” is more than mere curious case. It’s a casting dynamo bound to shakeup the MMFF and steal thunder from anything that crosses its path. “Nakakatuwa talaga yung dalawang bata. They complement each other so well. You can see that when you watch the movie. Nagtuturuan, nagtatawanan, sabay napapagod, sabay nagugutom. Masaya lang kami sa set. Para lang kaming laging naglalaro,” said “My Little Bossings” lead star and co-producer, Vic Sotto.
The entertainment icon also noted the serendipity they had with the on-screen chemistry produced by the unlikely pairing of Ryzza and Bimby.
“Nasa treatment din ‘nung script eh at nasa execution din ng director. So credit goes to the writer and our director Marlon Rivera. Kasi kahit maganda ‘yung script kung hindi naman mae-execute mabuti at kung hindi rin naman magagampanan ng mabuti ng mga artista, bale wala rin lahat. So like what you said, trailer pa lang kitang kita na ang chemistry nung dalawa, mas lalo na kapag pinanood mo ‘yung full length na pelikula. May mga tsamba sa buhay na hindi mo sinasadya, eto ‘yung isang tsamba, yung pagkakateam-up ‘nung dalawa,” he added.
“My Little Bossings” also stars Aiza Seguerra, Jaclyn Jose, Jose Manalo, Paolo Ballesteros, Barbie Forteza, Neil Coleta, and Neil Sese from the direction of Marlon Rivera. Story and screenplay by Bibeth Orteza.
Produced by OctoArts Films, M-Zet Films, APT Entertainment and Kris Aquino Productions, “My Little Bossings” starts showing on Christmas Day as an entry to the 2013 MMFF.
