After 17 years, I got a chance to watch this film during the Stars Converge…The Stellar Art and Career of Elwood Perez at the UP Film Institute.
About the film? Nora Aunor is Nora Aunor! Perfect story line, very strong climax and ending, very good directing by direk Elwood. But I realized that audio and cinematography is very very bad in the early 90’s
Trivia: Direk Joyce Bernal, then apprentice editor in this film also appeared as extra, the rape victim complainant at the police station.
I was the Assistant Production Manager, my first job after college. After 17 years, I finally saw my name at the closing credits… LOL
