25 August 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This is the best movie ever made about Jose Rizal as both seen in the past and now. Although we just finished watching it 2 days ago and have to make a deconstruction paper about it for tom., I realize that it is the only movie that gives you 2 sides of the life of Rizal and gives you all the "facts" that can help you make you own opinion about our National Hero. It also has humorous ideas that somehow makes you very interested to see what, how, where and when it really happened. It's like a sherlock Holmes' case and you are Watson who is trying so bad to find out the truth. Although you don't go through dark alleys, you go through time and even meet the characters themselves... The way the movie was presented was not even confusing. The writer must have been a very organized person to think of how the whole movie would really love this movie....not to mention that you can really feel the "times" because of the color used.. Every person should watch it and it is true, as one of the comments said, that the director is a hero for making such a movie...Amazing! ponder ponder......was Jose Rizal really heroic enough to be our national hero..or heroic for that matter...or does Andres Bonifacio have a chance of stealing the title from the Pilibustero? or was he even a pilibustero?......hmm...... watch the movie.......
