PC. From Philippines, historically a politically and economically tormented territory, another filmmaker that emerges as if there was there an inexhaustible reservoir out of an ark of probabilities. A melodrama that's neither obvious nor manichean, complex in its ideological implications and courageous in its dramaturgical determination, with an impressive level of cinematic correspondence.
Explicit story on the complexities of human compassion in an oppressive, unjust exercise of power affecting intricately the lives (characters) involved in the story. Worth watching with the three best actors; Bembol Roco, Christopher de Leon and Ms. NORA AUNOR of the Phillippines on their greatest portrayals, respectively.
