GREAT WORK
13 August 2002 | by fab-oneSee all my reviews

A 10/10! A must see movie. Great script, great direction. Cesar Montano's performance is very moving. His acting is much better than his movie, Jose Rizal.

This movie, dealing about the Muslim rebellion in Mindanao and its effect to the civilians, is worth for your collection!
