Pastilan!
1 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very goodly movie. Its interesting to see how Cesar Montano plays with the theme of colonial mentality. I'd have wished John Smith died in a mishap. A very hatable character. In contrast, the Japanese commander was a likable compassionate character. Remembrance. Put my heart.

Very well translated too, sometimes the word "Pastilan" goes from 'darn' to 'Oh boy'... or "Uy kalami!" becomes "How Sweet!" instead of "how tasty!".

I'm glad they used full Visayan dialogue. Ang mga bisaya, naai utok! Wa mi nanginahanglan sa inyong panabang!

Grade B+
