A live action-packed film on the hazards that medical workers face to save 193 lives from the fire trapped at the 70th floor of a Yokohama skyscraper. Based on the TV series of the same title, the movie adaptation deploys a team of emergency professionals on wheels formed by the Tokyo governor with one mission only: to prevent a single death.

Tasked with rushing to the scene of major accidents, disasters, and crimes, MER is armed with state-of-the-art medical equipment, a mobile operating room, and an elite staff ready to risk all to save lives.

“The Boy and The Heron”

Dubbed as a big fantastical film, the movie follows a boy named Mahito (voiced by Soma Santoki) who enters a magical world with a talking grey heron after finding an abandoned tower in his new town. Yearning for his mother, Mahito ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead where death comes to an end and life finds a new beginning.

“The Boy and The Heron” is a semi-autobiographical fantasy about life, death, creation and a tribute to friendship that can only come from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.

The films on this list are brought to us by Encore Films and distributed through Warner Bros. Philippines.

    Oppa is Life is a fan page created in 2019 when I felt the need for another virtual space to pour out my feels, musings and fangirl experiences. It started as a Facebook fanpage but I later on decided to open other social media accounts because a single Facebook page just doesn’t feel enough.
