This movie will make you cry. That much I can say.
Iloilo the Movie took part in this year’s Cannes Film Festival and walked away with the Camera D’Or Prize for Best First Feature Film. It also won several awards (including Best New Director and Best Supporting Actress) in the recently-concluded Golden Horse Awards for Chinese-language movies.
Catch a special screening tonight at SM Mall of Asia. If you can’t make it, watch out for the commercial run starting December 4.
You will be proud of the performance of Angeli Bayani. And you will be more touched that she plays the true-to-life role of a Filipina nanny (Teresa Sajunia) who raised the film’s director (Anthony Chen) just like her own.
Watch it. 😉
