“JOSE RIZAL” is considered the biggest blockbuster film ever made in the history of Philippine cinema. Directed by Marilou Diaz Abaya (UP graduate and London-trained director) under GMA Films, this movie won over 70 international awards, including 16 awards from the 1998 Metro Manila Film Festival, 11 awards from the 1999 FAMAS Awards, 6 awards from the 1999 Gawad Urian Awards, 8 from the 1999 Star Awards for Movies and various awards from different film festivals worldwide like the Berlin International and Toronto Film Festivals. Multi-awarded actor Cesar Montano stars as Jose Rizal, who was able to give justice to our National hero as he played the role perfectly. Other equally good actors and actresses like Joel Torre, Gloria Diaz, Chin Chin Gutierez, Monique Wilson and many more have contributed to making the movie really spectacular.
A true gift in the Centenary year of Philippine Independence (the film was released in 1998) to all Filipinos around the world, this film can now be enjoyed again in the comforts of our homes as GMA Records releases its home video copy in VCD and DVD formats. DVD format includes scene selections, english subtitles and documentary on the making of Jose Rizal produced by Probe Team. Grab a copy and watch the most talked-about film of cultural and historical significance over and over again.
