Trailer
Directed by Lav Diaz
Philippines, 2006
Drama
      Tagalog
      English
      NOT RATED

Synopsis

The odyssey of one man from his village to the city and back; more, it’s his journey from a state of absolute innocence to knowledge, disillusionment, guilt.

Our take

Filipino director Lav Diaz immerses us in the life and experience of Heremias, so beset by the corruption and troubles endemic to Philippine society. A saga of a modern Jeremiah, A modern parable told with angry compassion.
