Norma (Maricel Soriano) straddles between being a mother to Ruby (Tala Santos) and being a nanny to her employer's daughter, Louise (Erika Oreta). Norma left her daughter in the province to be a nanny to another person's daughter. An emergency forces Norma to bring Ruby with her to Manila and her employer is kind enough to accept Ruby in the household. However, Louise (Erika Oreta), the daughter of Norma's employer, competes with Ruby for Norma's affection. Now, Norma has to balance her love and attention for the two special people in her life: her daughter and her ward.

"Tearjerker"-type of Movie
15 December 2006 | by (Pasig City, Metro Manila, Philippines) – See all my reviews

On Monday, December 11th, here in Philippines, I decided to watch this movie, alone, at SM Megamall, as my wife had to work at her office. Since my Tagalog comprehension is limited, I wanted to watch a movie that has a GP rating and with young children, so I can understand the Tagalog language easier. So, I watched it, not knowing that this movie is a Tearjerker.

While watching it on Monday, I sent my wife an SMS that I am watching this movie and she told me she wanted to watch this movie, too. At this moment, I did not know this movie is a Tearjerker. (Most often, I avoid tearjerkers because I grew up under the condition that men are not supposed to cry.) Throughout the movie, many people were crying, then there were scenes that made people laugh, especially how Maricel Soriano acted when chasing for the taxi.

The scene that affected me, most, was when Ruby entered the Louise' home and she seeks the attention of Louise, but was constantly ignored as her mom continued to iron the clothes. -- For me, growing up in the USA, I am able to recognize & reflect at that emotional scene.

Ruby was restricted from doing and saying everything, as identified on the bus ride. -- When I was growing up in the USA, I recognized "restrictions" being raised by a Filipino father in the US Navy and American mother from New England part of the United States.

On Thursday, I watched the movie, again, but this time, with my wife, and she also enjoyed the movie. During this time, she saw me cry, however, she cried more and the group of people behind us and around the cinema, also cried. My wife enjoyed the entire movie. She said that the movie portrays the True Lives of People, worldwide. I would agree because I see the Nanny-scenes, almost daily, when living in the USA.

My mother in-law (mother of my wife) is very interested in watching this movie, as I type this comment for IMDb.

As I have seen many Filipino movies, from 1992 to present time, I strongly recommend this movie as a MUST WATCH. (The last movie I enjoyed as much, as "All About Love.") I plan to buy the DVD of Inang Yaya as soon as it is released.
