Leo is used to the temporary. Typical of many young Filipinos, he supports his family by hopping from one short-term job to the next – in fast food restaurants to supermarkets to department stories. Leo’s relationships with women are similarly fleeting. But when he meets the spirited dreamer Tanya (portrayed by a luminous Ina Feleo, who evokes the gamine wistfulness of Audrey Hepburn), he is suddenly faced by the promise of a better future…and doesn’t seem equipped to handle it. The film, a gorgeously-lensed romance full of outstanding performances from its charming lead actors, depicts a nation where money, dreams and love are elusive.
END OF CONTRACT won the Best Actress, Best Editing and a Special Jury Prize at the Cinemalaya Film Festival 2007.
