Longest 100 miles...
18 June 2007 | by edallastx1See all my reviews

It's an important great movie for Filipinos and American alike. It brings back memories of my childhood in the Philippines specially the unspoiled scenery and sound- the song the children were singing at the end credits. I remember miles and miles of rice and sugarcane fields going north and miles of jungle and coconut plantation heading south of Manila. Those were wonderful trips my parent took me. I would also recommend "American Guerilla in the Philippines" filmed right immediately after WW2. It's part of our history and heritage as Filipinos and Filipino-Americans. And "the Great Raid". Also recommended it the PBS Special of on Filipino American who fought in WW2 "AN UNTOLD TRIUMPH" 2003 Also read "The Bloody Liberation of Manila", Lt Ramsey's War, Behind Japanese Lines, hopefully we can pass along these movie gems and knowledge to the next generation of Filipinos.
