“Baler Movie MMFF 2008″ by Jericho and Anne Curtis
Baler is a classic set love story played in the role by Anne Curtis and Jericho Rosales. Baler is also an official MMFF movie entry to the 2008 festival and is expected to earn a lot positive criticisms from the viewing public because of the unique set up of the love story between a Spaniard and a Filipina that happened in the siege of Baler, Quezon in the World War where we fought the Spaniard colonization.
The HUKBALAHAP or Hukbo Laban sa Hapon is the main army of the Philippines that time who resisted in the war against the Japanese and can be clearly manifested in this movie as the same people who fought against the colonization by the Spaniards. The movie, Baler is played in the perfect combination by Anne Curtis, a Filipina who fell in love with Jericho Rosales a Spaniard.
This is yet another once in a lifetime team up by two of the best actors and actress in Philippine cinema and I expect this to top the charts too. Baler is a movie that captures a different twist in its story as set in the early times of the Filipino-Spanish colonization and as the warring parties come across. I give this movie a THUMBS UP!
