ABOUT THE FILM: Julio Madiaga goes to the city to look for his long lost love, Ligaya Paraiso. His search leads to a radical shift in his character – from a naive country boy to an angry young man thirsting for justice.
“A brave and extraodinary picture.” – Martin Scorsese
“The vicious depredations of the urban jungle have rarely been bared with such fierce clarity as in this 1975 melodrama, directed by Lino Brocka.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
