Storyline

A young married couple, Maria and Jose (Rosa Rosal and Tony Santos) start life together creating a lanzones orchard in the countryside. They have four children - Miguel (Leroy Salvador), Arturo (Carlos Padilla Jr), Angelita (Marita Zobel), and Lito (Danilo Jurado). The eldest, Miguel, is a deaf-mute. Life is good to them and the children grow up and bring joy to the community. But trouble enters their lives when Jose makes an enemy of Bruno (Joseph de Cordova). Bruno, a widower, is much feared in the village, for it is rumored that he caused the death of his wife. And yet he wants to remarry and is courting Choleng (Mila Ocampo), Jose's niece. But Choleng avoids Bruno and one day, in trying to get away from him, she slips and falls off a cliff and dies. The village is outraged and Bruno hides in the mountains. There, he plots his revenge on the village, particularly on Jose's family. Written by Compaqbo

the youngest member of the family is Lito played by Danilo Jurado
9 January 2006 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie several times in the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Our local cable network here in the Philippines and in our local SM mall movie theater. The youngest was Danilo Jurado. I'm hoping that Danilo Jurado's name will be included in your database for Biyaya Ng Lupa.The movie gives us true Filipino values and a chance to reminisce our own past. It also gives our country something to be proud of. Since I was small I always watch black and white films. Until now, its been an hobby. Maybe it was also the reason that I took up a degree in communication in college. I am a showbiz writer here in the Philippines. Thank you.
