watch it for the travel footage
26 July 2010 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Depending on what you want from this film it's either really good travelogue with a story sew on to it or an okay romance with too much travel footage attached. This shot in the Philippines film is largely a travelogue of life among some of the islands. Its a great slice of life film with some truly amazing shots of life in the small village. The problem is that grafted on to the documentary footage is the story of forbidden romance. Its not bad, but it isn't really good since its hampered by actors who aren't actors and a sense of unreality that isn't in the rest of the film. Worth a look if you are inclined but just be ready for split nature to the film.
