“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!

    Yeap, i thought Jericho was the indio and Anne was Spanish before i watched the movie. Haha.

  • incredible me! says:

    ..i saw Balercould be a great movie for us phil,that could reminisce the past of our Filipinos,,who survive under the ruling of Spaniards,,

  • nora says:

    HUKBALAHAP?! He He. That’s just messed up. :D Nice Movie though. Although, they could have made it more gory-ish so that the siege would be more realistic. The spaniards just looked like they we’re acting like dying, not really dying. Thumbs up for the product!

  • Smile says:

    the movie project the true events happened at the province of Aurora particularly in the town of Baler where the last stand of the Spanish soldier was measured, and the true Filipino values was projected by the cast and of course the director of the film together with the writer.The movie is nice and the actors are good. It realisticaly project the history of Baler which was almost forgotten by the grown-ups like me today.

  • ivz says:

    Heres the summary of the movie..hope i can help…

    The story happened during the siege of Baler. A battle between the Filipino forces and Spanish battalion in 1898.

    A young Filipina, named Feliza who fell in love with a half Spanish and a half Filipino young man, named Celso who prefer to be a Spanish soldier rather than to be a Filipino katipunero. Feliza and Celso’s love has to be kept as a secret because Feliza is the daughter of Nanding, a rebel leader who has the burning desire to completely annihilate Spanish soldiers in the town of Baler.

    Filipino troops including the father of Feliza started to attack Spanish soldiers. The Spanish battalion inhabited the church as their barracks to protect them from attacks of up armed Filipinos bounding the church.

    As the siege prolongs, little by little the Spaniards’ supply of foods diminish and many soldiers got sick because of no more supplies of food to eat. Commander Las Morenas and other subsequent commanders got wounded and sick because of being isolated for a number of months. There were some soldiers surrendered because they could no longer bear their sufferings. Even Celso who knew that Feliza got pregnant planned to escape together with his colleagues. That night of their escaped Celso was trapped due to his friends’ own fear. He was betrayed by his own friend. Feliza who was patiently waiting for Celso, knew nothing about the execution happened to her love inside the church.

    Filipino troops have many times tried to convince the Spaniards to surrender because Spanish fleet in Manila was already defeated and the war was actually ended. But still they refused to believe. “Viva España!” their principle.
    The last commander who discovered that the news was true was Commander(cant remember his name). After the confirmation of the news At last he and his follower peacefully surrendered.
    The sad thing was that poor Feliza, who longed for her love, who could instead be the happiest woman in the world that time because finally she and her love could be together, did not find Celso in the flock of freed soldiers rather found him inside the church….with life, no more . =’(

    I have learned that…
    Love is not easy in a time of uneasiness. But above all, Filipinos were really a freedom fighter. As Spaniards did not surrender, much more the Filipinos.
