Storyline

Three young and good-looking brothers live with and support their parents in Manila; they dance at the male Club Exotica and work as "call boys." Joel has a wife and child; he and Dennis are saving money to buy back lost family land. Sonny has dropped out of university and sees dancing as a way to make money for now. Joel has a regular boyfriend as well; Sonny spends time with Michelle, a transvestite; Dennis and his pals steal car radios. When their nanay takes in a homeless youth who is not what he appears to be, a chain of events is set in motion that brings tragedy. Is there any salvation in this late-night world of "macho dancing" and prostitution? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A portrayal of family struggling in poverty, and has forced the 3 boys into prostitution particularly in the gay world.

Every bit of "Midnight Dancers" (Sibak) was fantastic !!! This is truly a work of Art. This could be one of the best Filipino films made ever. Very Phenomenal ! ! ! Mel Chionglo was outstanding in making this film, together with the entire cast and crew. From beginning to end, the film was captivating ! Every single one in the cast did his/her part so well ! Perla Bautista (Mila,the mother of the 3 brothers) being a veteran of Filipino movies was exceptionally excellent, just as in all her other films, and so is TV/Movie Commedienne Soxy Topacio (Dominic, the manager of the gay bar). There is only one single thing missing in the film- and that is A List of the entire cast and the Roles they portrayed. Example, who played the role of Dennis (Raffy)? I don't know if this is Alex Del Rosario or Gandong Cervantes, etc. I hope that list could be uploaded for others to know who portrayed who.
