Death of Nintendo

Although it will take some time for [the characters] to laugh about it, the endearing comedy lets audiences do so immediately.


Death of Nintendo

Death of Nintendo begins with Paolo, a sheltered and obedient son who is stifled by his overprotective mother – and ends with his friend Mimaw, a tomboy who finds herself after getting her heart broken for the first time.

A series of earthquakes leading up to Mt. Pinatubo’s historic volcanic eruption has been causing blackouts across the country, preventing kids from playing video games. After roaming the streets and getting beat up, Paolo and his friends, Kachi and Gilligan, decide on traditional circumcision as the ultimate answer to their problems.

Paolo gets sidetracked and falls in love with the neighborhood “It” girl Shiara. Against his mother’s wishes, he makes an elaborate plan to take her on a ghost-hunting trip on Good Friday, coercing Mimaw to help him along. Mimaw agrees, out of secret feelings of infatuation that she is developing towards him.

On the night of the hunt, everything goes wrong and the friends realize that not everything is fun and games. Mimaw realizes she must become her own person and no longer be one of the boys. They reunite the next summer, changed.
