Many became interested with the film 'Lihis' as it tackles the life of two NPA rebels who were gays.
*First Posted 7/11/13

It has become more interesting because hunk actors Jake Cuenca and Joem Bascon sexually play the lead roles. Plus the fact that they had this very intimate sex scenes (in bed and along the river) that went viral a few weeks before the premiere of this film.
To make the long story short everyone was curios about this film. It is indeed interesting and it has a very creative plot.
With great expectations you can speculate that this will give a lot of good scenes.
However the story's narration was quiet slow and it tends to bore the audience.
The flashback parts are confusing. Medyo walang progression hanggang dumating sa last part.
It was not totally an ugly film at all. Just Good enough. You can still recommend this film to your friends because it is made by a Master director.
The selling point of this film would be how it imposed an importance to our history and it was derived from a true story.

Its his first time to play a gay role in a movie. But Jake Cuenca first played a gay role in an episode of "Maalaala Mo Kaya."

"I'm an actor. For me, I'm very comfortable with my sexuality. I know where I stand in life. To do scenes like that, it won't bother me. Of course nakakailang pero si Baron yon kaibigan ko naman si Baron so OK lang. For me, I'm an actor and I'm willing, basta nagustuhan ko yung materyal ay haharapin ko 'yon at hindi ako magba-buckle," he said.

He said that he could not say no to the project because he believes that he is in good hands with director Joel Lamangan and co-stars Geisler and Lovi Poe.

"I couldn't say no to Joel Lamangan (ang director), Ricky Lee as the writer. So many good actors and actress sa movie. At matagal na akong naghahanap ng indie movie and this is the perfect one," he said.

He said that, "Lihis" is an epic story of two men who fell in love with each other while fighting for their principles.

"Maganda yung movie, epic movie ito, made in the 80's. Ito yung panahon ng mga aktibista at NPA at makikita niyo yung life ng mga homosexual noon ay hindi pa klaro at hindi pa tanggap," he said
