What matter death if one dies for what one loves, for native land and cherished ones?
"Jose Rizal" is considered the biggest blockbuster film ever made in the history of Philippine cinema.
Directed by Marilou Diaz Abaya (UP graduate and London trained director) under GMA Films, this movie won over 70 international awards, including 16 awards from the 1998 Metro Manila Film Festival, 11 awards from the 1999 FAMAS Awards, 6 awards from the 1999 Gawad Urian Awards, 8 from the 1999 Star Awards for Movies and various awards from different film festivals worldwide like the Berlin International and Toronto Film Festivals.
Multi-awarded actor Cesar Montano stars as Jose Rizal, who was able to give justice to our National hero as he played the role perfectly.
Other equally good actors and actresses like Joel Torre, Gloria Diaz, Chin-Chin Gutierrez, Monique Wilson and many more have contributed to making the film truly spectacular.
A true gift in the Centenary year of Philippine Independence (the film was released in 1998) to all Filipinos around the world.
