Description
A drama that follows the travails of the Pineda family in the Filipino city of Angeles. Bigamy, unwanted pregnancy, possible incest and bothersome skin irritations are all part of their daily challenges, but the real "star" of the show is an enormous, dilapidated movie theater that doubles as family business and living space. At one time a prestige establishment, the theater now runs porn double bills and serves as a meeting ground for hustlers of every conceivable persuasion. The film captures the sordid, fetid atmosphere, interweaving various family subplots with the comings and goings of customers, thieves and even a runaway goat while enveloping the viewer in a maelstrom of sound, noise and continuous motion.

There seem to be two themes to the film--one dealing with service and the other with family (that happens to be the name of the movie house.) Service refers to the hustlers who sell themselves inside the theater and here morality is questioned. Here is a society that is full of self-pity and poverty and as the family struggles, the hustlers are making good money right under their noses. Interestingly enough the film is based on the truth. The word "serbis" or service refers not only the service provided by the rent boys but the service that is required of family members to each other as well as the service the movie house provides for the people and the service of the populace to each other.

Gina Pareno as Nanay is a domineering matriarch of the Filipino family. This is the traditional role for women in the Philippines; it has a matriarchal society with men in the forefront but behind each man is a powerful woman. As the camera follows each character, we learn about them from their actions. This, in turn, provides different levels of understanding.
This is quite a different approach to family dynamics and as the camera plays the role of the eyes of the director, we get a look at family and culture that we do not often get.
It is easy to see why people might dislike "Serbis"--it is raw and bleak and there are highly sexual scenes but despite that there are images of optimism for the future of the characters and it certainly seems if there will be a change for the better.
The film is one that is not easily explained. It is a different kind of film and has to be seen with a clear mind.
