Manny the Movie Guy: “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral”
There’s a new Filipino film that will make you proud, so let’s talk about “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral.”
Slow and deliberate, forceful and passionate, Batang Heneral is an eye-opening historical biopic of Gregorio del Pilar, one of the youngest generals of the Philippine-American war.
Paulo Avelino effectively embodies our hero. At once a young man smitten with love and a cautious leader with great responsibilities, our boy General must grow up, and grow up fast.
