u people should really check out some filipino films. i urge u guys to do so, im a fan of the Philippine Cinema. i've seen alot of filipino films and they can really move and touch u because of the strong points they're giving to the audience. the story lines and plots are very different..inspired by the unstable society and diverse,colorful strong willed people there in the Philippines. judging from the filipino films i've seen so far,i find them very unique. the actors are fairly great, there are far better filipina actresses than Gong Li of Raise the Red Lantern..that i can really say.
