i fell in love with this movie
2 October 2007 | by rolando-parelSee all my reviews

Once in while, a very long while, a film comes that really hits home. The last time i felt like this for a Filipino movie was with Brocka's "Maynila, sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag".

My sister told me about this film and she says that I would like this film. We like mostly American films. Like our favorites are The Godfather, Gone with the Wind, Midnight Cowboy, Young Frankenstein, In Cold Blood, Groundhog Day, The Good Earth, you know, well-crafted, quality movies. So she gave me the CD to watch. I was doing some take-home work that night and thought I'd watch just the beginning of it, so i could tell my sister i watched it. Half-hearted, I put the CD on the PC and started watching, while i worked, expecting some typical corny soap opera drama, etc. and seeing the names of some of the actors, during the opening credits, I said to myself, this is definitely going to suck.

I ate my words that very night. It took me almost 4 hours to finish the movie, because from the very beginning of the film, where Carol Banawa starts singing a church song, i just had to keep rewinding and re-watching almost every scene up to the end, reading the credits and seeing the name of Laurice Guillen. She has told a good story very very well, the screenwriter was very good too, everything about the movie is excellent. Simply, one of the best Filipino movies of all time.
