Recently I was able to watch the trailer of ROSARIO by accident. I am very curios about the role of the Comedy King, Dolphy in the movie so I decided to watch it until the trailer has ended.
I would definitely watch this movie, a must seen. The production is very classic and sophisticated, which is great. I think Jennylyn here is so promising. This film is directed by Albert Martinez.
Here is the story:
The film tells the saga of Rosario, a young and liberated Filipina in the 1920s who has just arrived from New York, and is spending her vacation in their hacienda.
There, she meets and falls in love with Vicente, an older man who manages the tobacco plantation owned by Rosario’s family. When Rosario’s father finds out about his daughter’s scandalous affair, he sends Rosario to a convent.
She escapes, and elopes with Vicente to Manila where they raise a family. But Rosario’s life of married bliss slowly crumbles when Vicente becomes ill with tuberculosis, and she is lured to committing adultery. Temptation and scandal still hound Rosario as she continues to defy the moral restrictions of her time.
Based on a true story and set in one of the most colorful periods in Philippine history, ROSARIO is destined to be a modern masterpiece in Philippine film making. It is a monumental yet intimate portrait of a woman’s emancipation and the sometimes painful consequences of following one’s desires.
