The film tells the saga of Rosario, a young and liberated woman in the 1920s who has just arrived from New York, and is spending her vacation in their hacienda.There, she meets and falls in love with Vicente, an older man who manages the tobacco plantation owned by Rosario's family. When Rosario's father finds out about his daughter's scandalous affair, he sends Rosario to a convent.
She escapes, and elopes with Vicente to Manila where they raise a family. But Rosario's life of married bliss slowly crumbles when Vicente becomes ill with tuberculosis, and she is lured to committing adultery. Temptation and scandal still hound Rosario as she continues to defy the moral restrictions of her time.
Based on a true story and set in one of the most colorful periods in Philippine history, ROSARIO is destined to be a modern masterpiece in Philippine filmmaking. It is a monumental yet intimate portrait of a woman's emancipation and the sometimes painful consequences of following one's desires.
Highly Recommended and High Quality in all aspects
Finally a Philippine movie that used a full orchestra of real musicians, not just an electronic mimicry of the real thing.
I think the acting was excellent and my gauge is how it makes the audience feel. Judge by the result. The acting clearly made us understand the characters and led a lot of the audience teary eyed. Kudos to Albert Martinez and he should do more films and be supported.
Yes Jennylyn didn't age in the 15 year span in the movie because she is beautiful. And it was effective in portraying that she was still hot even after having 4 kids.
I liked the cinematography and the choice of those excellent cameras was very evident.
I recommend to highly and every sensitive Filipino will be proud of this film and will be moved by it. Worth every cent.
