Odie and his best friend Irene are two outsiders who find a second home in the Philippine underground music scene.
The two decide to form a band and put together an unlikely crew that consists of the school bully, an ex-punk-turned-barista, and a former childstar-turned-band manager.
The film follows their misadventures as they face satanic S&M bands, samurai swindlers, narcissistic rockstars, the pretentious Philippine art community and the freakiest music video auteur ever.
Co-written by Diego Castillo, the guitarist of one of the Philippines’ biggest rock bands SANDWICH, and directed by multi-awarded music video director Quark Henares, Rakenrol is a heartfelt ode to the underground scene both filmmakers spent their formative years in.

Stars Jason Abalos, Glaiza de Castro, Alwyn Uytingco, Ketchup Eusebio, Diether Ocampo, Matet de Leon, Ramon Bautista, and Jun Sabayton.

I’m excited for Quark Henares’ Rakenrol.

Rakenrol is now CINEMALAYA’s closing film on July 23, 2011.

It reminds me too much of Scott Pilgrim.  Yung band name din parang name ng band ni Zooey Deschanel sa Yes Man.

I thought that Rakenrol  is a true-to-life, iniisip ko yung bida ay si Quark talaga mismo kasi nga diba he got his taste of music from his Dad( accdg sa trailer) which is true kasi his Dad, Atom is the founder of NU then may ‘titik O’ pa, ang pinanggalingan ni Chito Miranda haha !But when I watched the whole trailer, hindi pala… I love the concept of this movie. Ok to’  kasi Rock N Roll is now gradually dying here in PH. 🙁 That is sad lang, we have lots of good opm rock bands pa naman. We miss… Read more »
