As this issue goes to press, Vivamax has something up its sleeves again for the Filipino movie buffs as another certified hit streams this weekend, specifically on July 22.

“Tahan na,” mixed with words of comfort, is normally said to someone who is weeping uncontrollably in hopes that the crying would stop.  In the sexy drama/thriller “Tahan,” the main character has so many reasons to shed tears of anguish.  Can someone help stop her suffering?

Cloe Baretto plays Elise who works as a high-end escort for wealthy businessmen and politicians.  Even before she reached her teens, Elise was already thrown into prostitution.  What makes it more tragic is the fact that it was her own mother that put her in that situation.   

Veteran actress Jaclyn Jose plays Nora, Elise’s domineering mother.  She dismisses Elise’s plea to quit her job by saying that it’s the only thing Elise is good at.  Nora gives Elise the obligation of paying off her debts.    

Elise wants her mother out of her life, but Nora makes it clear that she cannot get rid of her so easily.  Nora goes on a killing spree.  The first kill is to save Elise from her abusive client.  But, soon, Nora becomes a deadly threat to any man that Elise becomes intimate with. And, in comes Marcus.

JC Santos plays Marcus, Elise’s high school sweetheart.  Now that they have reconnected, Marcus doesn’t want to lose her again.  Elise tries to shield him from Nora, just as Marcus tries to save Elise.  

But, there’s more to Nora than what Marcus or anyone can see.  And, Elise’s troubles are bigger than what they seem.

The story of “Tahan” is a product of the creative mind of Cloe’s friend and fellow sexy actress, Quinn Carillo.  

Quinn shares that while writing the script, she can already envision Cloe Baretto and Cannes Film Festival best actress, Jaclyn Jose, portraying the lead characters.  She even called Cloe about it and the latter was so excited and flattered to be on a lead role again after her launching movie, “Silab.”  JC Santos’ portrayal of Marcus gives this movie the romantic feel that Pinoy audiences would surely love.

Directed by Bobby Bonifacio Jr., “Tahan” is available for streaming on Vivamax starting July 22, 2022.
