Reviews:

4.5         Rito Asilo (Philippine Daily Inquirer)

“With a strong ensemble, Reyes’ movie steadily gathers steam as it examines the ties that bind Filipino families—even those who have succumbed to the Filipino diaspora.” (Read full review)

4.5         Renelson Morelos (Re[e]l Thoughts)

Ano ang Kulay ng mga Nakalimutang Pangarap? puts such well-regarded values like family ties, loyalty, devotion, dedication and responsibility to the test, with the family home becoming a haunted courtroom of sorts as it turns into a venue for deciding the fate of the household help.” (Read full review)

4.0         Oggs Cruz (Rappler)

“Reyes, true to his mission of exposing either the excesses or the shrouded inhumanity of his class, aims to use his film to move for compassion. Thus, subtlety is not an option.” (Read full review)

4.0         Mario Bautista (Showbiz Portal)

Ano ang Kulay ng mga Nakalimutang Pangarap? is a tearjerker but not in the usual soapy, overly sentimental kind of way. Joey Reyes intentionally avoids mawkishness and maudlin emotions. You don’t see the characters caterwauling. ” (Read full review)

3.0         Skilty Labastilla (Young Critics Circle)

“Reyes crafts a material that refreshingly deviates from his recent, tired for-the-mainstream-crowd comedies and the result is a frills-free examination of old age and life-long servitude. I just wished the film took me somewhere I’ve never been to before, because the film, restrained as it is, never really takes off.”

2.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The film reveals a history of sacrifice without looking much into the relationships that informed these choices. It still manages to lay out quite a powerful tragedy, but it sometimes feels like it’s using shorthand to bring those emotions to fore.” (Read full review)
