Tagalog Movie

Directed by Gregorio Fernandez
Screenplay by Consuelo P. Osorio
NOTE: Wide-screen VHS version only

Rosa and her brothers,
Medasto, Alberto, Leonides, Vedasto, & Avelino

Starring the foremost dramatic stars of their time: Charito Solis, Vic Silayan, Leroy Salvador, Carlos Padilla Jr, Rey Ruiz, Eddie Rodriguez, and Rebecca del Rio

Rosa (Charito Solis) lives with her mother (Rebecca del Rio) and four older brothers in the slums. When their drunkard father is run over by a train and dies, their mother wastes away in guilt and alcoholism.

Rosa is engaged to be married to Candido (Leroy Salvador), a man who loves her deeply but cannot understand why Rosa chooses to serve her brothers first, when they treat her no better than a servant.

Candido hopes to take Rosa away
from her miserable family

Melanio, the eldest (Vic Silayan), is a an obnoxious womanizer. Alberto (Carlos Padilla Jr), is a man deeply affected by the unsavory reputation of his family. Driven by desperation, he attempts to rape the girl he loves, and in despair, commits suicide. The violent Leonides (Vic Diaz) kills a man and dies in a bloody encounter with the police. The crafty Vedasto (Rey Ruiz) persuades Rosa to work for a wealthy man (Johnny Reyes) who has designs on her. But the youngest, Avelino (Eddie Rodri guez), is the only brother who is patient and responsible enough to help bear the family's burdens.

Directed by Gregorio Fernandez, the film transcends the typical Filipino melodrama through the use of sophisticated story-telling techniques and distinguished performances. Rebecca Del Rio, a familiar kontrabida (villain), subsequently won the 1958 Asian Film Festival best supporting actress award.
