Hopeful Filipina goes to Japan and subjected to various hardships and torture
26 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Really awful movie.The script is stereotypical-local girl goes to big city, encounters numerous difficulties, is tortured and thrown off a building.Well, the ending is not exactly Pretty Woman but at least I got the first part right. The main problem with this movie is that they shot in Japan (supposedly) but maybe they lacked the necessary permit to shoot legally that the lighting was so bad, in one point you could only discern the lead character's eyes in the dark. And the color of the film borders on sepia mixed with greenish tint.Miss Gutierrez's "scream at the top of my lungs" acting technique certainly did not help the movie much. I watched this during Holy Week and was my penance for my last ten years of sins. It's that bad.
