Bakit Bughaw ang Langit (Why is the Sky Blue?)

I finally, finally saw Mario O'Hara's "Bakit Bughaw ang Langit," about Nora as a mistreated young woman and her relationship with a retarded man, played by Dennis Roldan.

To put it bluntly, it's a tremendous little work, one of the most beautiful Filipino films I've ever seen, and one of Nora's best performances. I can't believe a film like this attracted so little attention. It blows a Hollywood effort like "Rain Man" right out of the water.

I'd write more, but I need to digest what i saw a little. This film deserves to be considered one of the best of the '80s. At the very least.
