Death of virtue
29 June 2009 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Story of ignorance very common in small isolated barrios in the Philippines. The movie however exaggerated the sexual orientation of the people.

Stars former Ms. Philippines, Ma. Isabel Lopez, including the soft-drink beauties of the late chief exploiter, Dr. Rey Dela Cruz who was murdered sometime in the '90s. It was so disappointing that Ms. Lopez, a UP graduate, used her beauty and brain to trash herself and the institution and country she used to represent.

This movie was produced during the era of the Experimental Cinema of the Philippine when some starlets in local show business were exploited to create sex-oriented movies. Marcos was still in power, and maybe this passed his approval to divert Filipinos from the worsening political and economic problems. Most of these experimental cinema allowed "pene" so don't be surprised if the there were actual "penetration" in this movie.

Produced by Elwood Perez and directed by Ricardo Lee. This experiment was definitely an on your face spit to the only Catholic nation in Asia.
