joey Noodles's rating of the film From What is Before

A modern masterpiece, I thought Melancholia was very good but this just breaks straight past that and into a different realm. A beautiful, poetic and compassionate and sorrowful look at the pain the Filipino nation have endured throughout the 20th Century and scars that has created on the country. Some of the closing scenes are almost too much to handle, emotionally speaking. Extremely stirring and haunting. 5/5
