Chikkaness Cinephile's Guide: National Film Festival 2013 Entry "LIHIS"

Award-winning director Joel Lamangan comes with another epic movie that will highlight love in its purest form. The storyline is about two young male NPA warriors who fell in love with each other amidst their fight against despotism and dictatorship during the 70's.

Written by Ricky Lee, the main cast includes Jake Cuenca, Lovi Poe, Isabelle Daza, Joem Bascon, and Ms Gloria Diaz. 

Chikkaness' Impressions: This could be one love story that cinephiles will surely talk about after watching the movie. I disagree that this is somewhat a copycat of Brokeback Mountain because it has a different theme and struggles on love. Direk Joel Lamangan continues to astonish us in his works. He dared to tell a story that some people would rather ignore because of prejudices. Its trailer shows off scenes with strong emotional punch.

LIHIS is one of the entries in this year's Sineng Pambansa National Film Festival 2013 All-Masters Edition that will run from September 11 - 17 at all SM Cinema Branches Nationwide.
