A. How was the portrayal of Rizal in general? |   Rizal is played by Cesar Montano with enthusiastically with impressive Spanish lines and good affectations. Lines are delivered with gospel-like fervor. While Montano succeeds in depicting the hero as should be done in this type of biopic, there is no question that he is upstaged by more seasoned thespians who are more creative in maximizing the meager roles that are written for them. Fabregas transforms his Taviel from mere attorney into a friend with believable ease and tenderness. Joel Torre, who plays Chrisostomo Ibarra, the main character in Rizal's novel, is both tragic and fearsome. Pen Medina plays Paciano, Rizal's elder brother, with adequate conviction. Sadly, the film is inconsistent in the acting department: Gardo Verzosa's Andres Bonifacio is an unconvincing romantic wreck, written as a cardboard cutout of blind idolatry, although the brash hero is more independent-thinking in real life; Gloria Diaz's Teodora Alonzo, Rizal's mother, falters with her miscarriage of melodramatic quips and mannerisms. |       Albert Martinez portrayed Rizal in an impressive way - a well-mannered gentleman, intelligent, respectable and handsome. The choice of actress of Amanda Page as Josephine Bracken was also rational - white skinned and beautiful, really American like. But Candy Pangilinan as Rizal’s sister was a bit unconvincing because she is a comedienne       The script was also excellent. Rizal used deep words, like a poet, and it showed us how intelligent Rizal was. They also used Spanish words     It taught me about the value of life and the beauty of children when Rizal and Bracken’s baby died. It taught me about the importance of freedom, and how to still live normally and fully if it had been denied of me. It taught me not to cease and wither when it comes to fighting for what I think is right.
