Jocjoc Bolante’s foray into the world of acting was met by very bad reviews.  But the fault is not his alone.  Whoever the director is, his sense of realism is terrible.    It was bad enough that Bolante’s acting was limited to a right hand placed on his left breast, as in flag ceremonies, and an unaffecting grimace that is not quite a grimace, the props are for someone who tripped on a pavement, fell badly and broke a rib.  Hence, the long episode meant to be a tearjerker about a besieged fellow with a failing heart condition near the peripheries of death drew giggles and guffaws instead.
