Did You Know?


Manager Wenn V. Deramas pulled out his talent, DJ Durano, from the production for alleged unfair treatment. Deramas said Deejay was hired as supporting actor, but he was only used as extra. Wenn said they accepted the Baler project despite the minimal talent fee, believing that Deejay would have a good role. Also for 10 straight days, Deejay's call time was 7 a.m., yet the actor had to wait for 10 hours for his take, the manager/director claimed. Wenn said he had to sacrifice the filming of Ang tanging ina n'yong lahat (2008) due to Deejay's absence for the filming of Baler. See more »

One of the best Filipino movies for me, I am from Maria Aurora a nearby town from Baler and i never known how great the story of the Baler Siege is until i watched the movie.

I'm surprised to know that the love story of Celso and Feliza really did exist as what is mentioned on the last part of the movie.

The direction is good, while the cinematography was superb.

Though a lot of people keep on saying that there are character mismatches in the film, the actors and actresses particularly the lead characters really did a great job.

Anne Curtis was beautiful and really effective in her portrayal. She is really commendable Well for me, the movie DEFINITELY deserves its wins especially when you are gonna compare it to some other festival entries.
