Pascual will star opposite fellow Kapamilya actor and rumored girlfriend Shaina Magdayao.

People are raving about the period film that competed in the Berlin International Film Festival.


The movie covers a dark era in Philippine political history, Martial Law.

The movie, with some scenes shot in the mountains of Malaysia, revolves around the journey of Hugo Haniway (Pascual), a poet searching for his wife Lorena (Magdayao), who fell victim to rebels.

In a past interview, Magdayao said she was proud to be part of the movie although, as a non-singer, she did not ever expect to appear in a musical.

However, with the movie’s gripping story, Magdayao said there was no reason for her to turn down the project, directed by no less than critically-acclaimed filmmaker Lav Diaz. /vvp
