Actor Coco Martin reportedly has frontal nudity in the movie Serbis, which competed at the recently-concluded Cannes International Film Fetsival. Coco's manager, Noel Ferrer, said that there was a "breach of trust" in that particular scene.



Was there really a"breach of trust" when Coco Martin did the frontal nudity scene in Serbis?

In competition angSerbis ni Brillante "Dante Mendoza" sa katatapos lang na 61st CannesInternational Film Festival. Last year, nakasama si Dante sa Director's Fortnight ng Cannes forhis film Foster Child. Cannes has this strict requirement na hindi puwedengmag-compete ang isang direktor hangga't hindi pa ito nakakapag-exhibition.

Although Serbis didnot receive glowing reviews from the critics, may isang pinag-usapan na eksenasa pelikula, ayon na rin sa mga nakapanood na Pinoy na nandoon. Ito ay angfrontal nudity ni Coco sa isang eksena.

Tiyempo namang nakitang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sina Coco and his manager Noel Ferrersa Starbucks Tomas Morato last Thursday night, May 29. Kararating pa lang thattime ni Coco from France as part of the Serbis contingent.

We askedCoco outright kung tunay nga siyang nag-frontal for the movie. Pero ang manager niyangsi Noel ang sumagot on his behalf.

"Kapatid, ibigay mo nasa akin ito. Ako na lang ang sasagot, hindi ito maipalalabas sa Pilipinas,"paikot na sagot sa amin ni Noel.

So we asked again ifthere is such a scene. Mas nakakaintriga ang dagdag na paliwanag ni Noel.

"There was a breach oftrust," sabi niya.

Hindi sumasagot siCoco sa sunud-sunod na tanong namin, letting his manager do the talking forhim. His facial reaction revealed though that he was not happy about what happened.

Sa tanong kung saanpart ba ng Serbis nag-frontal si Coco, hindi ito masagot exactly ng aktor dahilit turned out, hindi niya pinanood ang pelikula noong nandoon siya. He was atthe gala performance pero hindi siya pumasok sa sinehan.

We returned to the"breach of trust" thing, pero hindi na ito na-explain fully nina Coco at Noel.

"Wala ito sa usapan.Napilitan lang siya to do the scene dahil nanay-nanayan niya si Dante," sabi niNoel. "Pero nangako naman si Dante na hindi ito ipalalabas sa Pilipinas."

We asked Noel to bespecific—ang frontal ba o ang pelikula? Ang pagkakaalam namin, nagpapatulong nanga ang production ng initial press release for Serbis.

For sure daw na hindimaipalalabas sa Pilipinas ang frontal nudity ni Coco, sabi ni Noel, dahil partna ito ng usapan nila after all has been said and done. Hindi naman siya siguradosa movie dahil very sensitive ang topic nito, about a family whose business isgiving "service" in an old theater.

Both the careers of Dante as a director and Coco as an independent actorwere launched successfully via the independent movie Masahista (The Masseur).
