A Must See ...
24 June 2004 | by GoldSunBlueMoonSee all my reviews

This movie exemplifies trials and tribulations for Filipinos dreaming of that bright future in a foreign land.

The movie touches the spirit. I extend my gratitude to the characters, the director, and all who were involved. I hope to view more movies of the same content.

Rome and Venice were beautiful on screen, and the memory of my visit there remains vivid.

Personally, I believe life offers no guarantees. Nevertheless, it is not destined to be lived too cautiously, so as not to miss life's sweet experiences.
