Wow
16 August 1999 | by (California) – See all my reviews

wow...this is the reaction I felt after watching this movie documenting the life of Jose Rizal. I couldn't help but feel a sense of pride when watching certain parts. I'd recommend anybody to see this movie, but I think filipinos should see it too, as the movie is a perfect blend of the Philippine national hero's life and his two books, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibustrismo, and will leave you feeling this sense of pride in your country.
