  • DaisyJ's rating of the film Pepe en Pilar

    What?! Not even a picture? This is one of my guilty pleasures. This is not really considered a Filipino classic but I've always enjoyed watching this farce. It is about a woman who won a trip to the US and found herself not having a place to live until she finds a fellow Filipino whose family she can stay with. My review won't really give justice to the movie so you might as well just watch it and see for yourself.
