A movie to ponder for life
27 March 2014 | by (philippines) – See all my reviews

One movie that really put an edge in my heart is this movie..

It has a lot of merits specially to the main actors who portrayed their roles and of course Ms Dyan at her best yet... transcending from a young to elderly character is really convincing for the viewers...

The drama in the movie is touching ..

Watch it till the end and you will find it memorable ...

id give a 5 star for this excellent crafted TV movie..

I was hoping to find a copy from anywhere in the internet to you-tube but unfortunately my old VHS will have to do for now...

if anyone who knows where a secure a copy (DVD for sale) please let me know...
