The Ghost Bride, 5 Reasons why it’s a must-see
The Plot Revolves Around Chinese Tradition
Director Chito Roño is known for his expressive style of storytelling especially when it comes to obscure tales. Now he deals with the ancient Chinese custom of being betrothed to the dead. The characters being of Chinese descent adds authenticity in portraying the traditions on screen. Chito felt the lead role was perfect for Kim Chiu, who is of Chinese heritage. Chiu has expressed her excitement about the film, as it can inform viewers about another Chinese tradition which is not too known to the public. “The Ghost Bride,” was even filmed in Chinatown Binondo. It helped guide the story around the concept of unfamiliar Chinese customs and ancient traditions.
The cast also includes Christian Bables, Robert Seña, Ina Raymundo, Alice Dixson, Beverly Salvejo, Isay Alvarez, Nanding Joseph, Mon Confiado, Cacai Bautista, Victor Silayan, Luz Valdez, Matteo Guidicelli, and Jerome Ponce.
It Is Kim Chiu’s First Solo Movie
“The Ghost Bride” is Chiu’s first movie without a leading man or a love team partner. The actress has been in the industry for over a decade now. If you look at Kim’s filmography, you would notice it was either with Xian Lim or Gerald Anderson. And it’s a great start for her first solo film. Earning 15 million on its first day means success for the actress’ future solo endeavors.
Her rumored boyfriend, Xian Lim may not be starring with her in the film but he fully supports her. On Instagram, Lim posted a photo of him cuddling with Chiu and wrote: “To this delicate petunia, congratulations!” He also attended the first screening of the movie to support Chiu.paranormal,paranormal,paranormal
