Skillful, tasteful, powerful
3 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Though the plot was based on an actual murder case, the movie is a imagined recreation of what led to the homicidal incident. Vic Silayan, a patriarch who carries more than mere fatherly love to his daughter, is the ultimate personification of evil here. Unable to accept to accept the impending marriage of his daughter (Charo Santos) to beau Jay Ilagan, he makes life miserable for the pair. Ilagan, slowly learns the hideous secret the family carries and despite his plight, is unable to stop it. The imagery and music add to impending tragedy that awaited everyone. Great acting from Silayan, great directorial work from de Leon!
