a masterpiece
29 June 2003 | by (quezon city, philippines) – See all my reviews

Oro, Plata, Mata is one of the best films directed by Peque Gallaga. It is considered as one of the films that most likely to be a masterpiece in the Philippines.

It tells the story of a family who is scared to be involved in the war and decided to go to the woods in which they have created huts and rooms for their family but as the longer they stay there the nearer they get to danger.

Acting and directing were superb and originally the movie's running time was 5 hours so they are a lot of scenes cut to shorten it. I would recommend this film to people starting to appreciate Asian or Filipino movies from the 80's because it is a landmark in film making history.
