Simon, for me, it should be "Gaano Kita Kamahal" as Best Picture of the 1993 Metro Manila Film Festival and Boyet de Leon and Lorna Tolentino as Best Actor and Actress. Masasabi kong isa ito sa mga pelikulang merong kurot sa puso. Pare-pareho kong napanood ang "Kung Mawawala Ka Pa", "May Minamahal" at itong "Gaano Kita Kamahal", pero mas nagustuhan ko talaga ang story ng "Gaano...".

Choice ko rin James and "Gaano..." It was based on true story. Just saw it again, superb ang acting nina Boyet de Leon and Lorna T. Btw, the movie will be shown again, Dec. 11 at CCP as part of the ongoing "Overlooked Films, Underrated Filmmakers," a project of SOFIA.

Gusto ko manood ng "Ito Ang Pilipino" sa November, sa "Overlooked Films, Underrated Filmmakers". Magpapa-reserve na ako kay Mr. Monchito Nocon ng seat.
Manonood ka rin?

James, I've seen "Ito ang Pilipino" when it was first shown in 1966. But it's worth a second look. I hope they would invite Joseph Estrada, Barbara Perez and Eddie Garcia. That would be an eventful one! Hope I can make it!
