A lot Filipino movies are not known for its quality. Most producers only make movies for commercial purposes. This was a refreshing change from their "success formula." Carlos Siguion-Reyna adapted Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" and gave it a local flavor--it was well done although I didn't care much for Richard Gomez' acting abilities.
The film was pretty accurate in its adaptation and quite ambitious for Philippine cinema. The choice of Batanes island as the setting was perfect...we don't have moors here in the Philippines--we have beaches! Dawn Zulueta fit "Cathy's" role to a T. I only wish the producers of this film will continue to give us Filipinos a higher level of cinema experience. Hopefully, they will issue a DVD copy for us who want to watch it again.
