The production values are above average for a film from the Philippines and the acting is first rate in this heartbreaking true story of a woman who may have been falsely convicted of murder. The success or failure of this film hinges on Nora Aunor's performance and she delivers the goods. The ending is particularly powerful (even for those who know how this true story ends). Look for Vina Morales in a smaller role.
This film came out a few months after the title heroine was executed in Singapore, causing audiences to go and figure what really happened. It worked, in part due to Nora Aunor's award-winning turn as Flor Contemplacion. Although the script is a bit melodramatic at times (for sure you'll know what will happen in the end), good performances from the actors guarantee a boost in this movie. No wonder it won well-deserved awards for Best Film and Actress at the Cairo International Film Festival, as well as the local Oscars. See it for you to prove what I'm saying is true. Rating: 9/10.
