YesAsia Editorial Description

Pinoy Sunday is a true Panasian production - director Wi Ding Ho is a Malaysian living in Taipei, its funding mainly comes from Taiwan and Japan, and it's entirely shot in Taipei with a mostly Filipino cast. Such a background is certainly appropriate for a film about two men away from home facing barriers in a culture they have yet to fully understand. At first glance, Pinoy Sunday appears to be a mildly humorous exploration of Filipino migrant workers in Taiwan and the hardships they face as foreigners in a strange land. However, Ho instead steers the story to a hilarious road trip with universal themes like friendship and self-discovery that will connect to an audience anywhere.

Dado (Bayani Agbayani) and Manuel (Epy Quizon) are migrant workers from the Philippines working in a factory in the outskirts of Taipei. Every Sunday, they - along with their fellow Filipino laborers - get to have a free day in the city. This Sunday starts off like any other, with Dado spending time with his girlfriend and Manuel attempting to meet a girl he met the previous week at the local bar. Even though various circumstances ruin both men's plans, they find a little spark of hope when they come across an abandoned couch on the street. Determined that it's a gift from God, Manuel convinces Dado to carry the couch all the way back to the factory, setting off a road trip through the Taipei suburbs and the various characters that inhibit it. However, the two must return to the factory by their nightly curfew to avoid being deported.

Product Information

一張沙發,兩個天兵,過了一個雞飛狗跳的…台北星期天!

身為近萬在台菲勞大軍的其中兩人,馬諾奧,年輕單身、自命風流,一心肖想能和雇主有一腿的美麗菲傭賽西麗拍拖。而在同一工廠上班的老鄉迪艾斯,篤實憨厚、內斂寡言,一方面時刻掛念遠在家鄉的妻小,卻又和同在台灣工作的安娜勾勾纏纏,搞七捻三。每到星期天,兩人總是懷抱不同的期待,用力把工廠、門禁拋諸九霄雲外,直奔台北市中心。但這個星期天,馬諾奧和迪艾斯的美夢卻一個一個破碎。一張被遺棄在路邊的火紅沙發,勾起了兩人的目光。閉目想像這樣一張沙發放在宿舍的天台上,喝著冰涼的啤酒、看著天上的星星,這大概就是天堂了吧。就這樣,馬諾奧與迪艾斯這兩位天兵,一前一後,在這尋常的週日午後,扛起沙發,上山下海,一起穿過台北城市的大街小巷,展開一段爆笑連連,卻又萬般滋味的奇幻旅程。
