The film started with a scene showing Rizal at Belgium writing a letter. The letter contains his thoughts that the Philippines has a serious illness and that it is plagued by the Spanish domination over our country. Crisostomo Ibarra was also introduced in the film, and it is Rizal’s alter ego. Ibarra had been forced to have two personalities because of the worsening problem in our country. He cursed the revolution and even the youth because they are asking for chains and not freedom with Spain. He said, “Mamamatay kayo bago pa man dumating ang inyong kamatayan.”

Rizal had published books such as the Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, as his weapons against the dominions of Spain in our country. These novels became an inspiration over the “KATIPUNAN” or the “Sons of the People.” Andres Bonifacio condemns the friars and he said that the Spain is deaf and blind, they only make people become imbeciles and criminals. The only way for independence and freedom is through revolution. The Katipunans tear their ‘cedulas’ that symbolizes to end all of their ties with Spain and unity with revolution.

The friars have discovered such revolution; they even interrogated Paciano (Rizal’s older brother) just to gain information about the uprising in the country. The male members of Rizal’s family left their home at Tondo, Manila because they were being hunted by Spanish forces. Meanwhile, Governor General Blanco was subject to the commands of Monsignor Nosaleda.

On November 1896, Rizal has been brought to Fort Santiago in Manila, and he was being interrogated by a colonel of Spain. He refuse to admit that he knows anything about the revolution and the colonel accused him as a traitor, just like Fr. Burgos. Father Burgos has been sentenced to death together with other priests such as Father Gomez and Father Zamora (GOMBURZA). The death of Father Burgos was witnessed…...

...Life of Jose Rizal JOSE RIZAL, the national hero of the Philippines and pride of the Malayan race, was born on June 19, 1861, in the town of Calamba, Laguna. He was the seventh child in a family of 11 children (2 boys and 9 girls). Both his parents were educated and belonged to distinguished families. His father, Francisco Mercado Rizal, an industrious farmer whom Rizal called "a model of fathers," came from Biñan, Laguna; while his mother, Teodora Alonzo y Quintos, a highly cultured and accomplished woman whom Rizal called "loving and prudent mother," was born in Meisic, Sta. Cruz, Manila. At the age of 3, he learned the alphabet from his mother; at 5, while learning to read and write, he already showed inclinations to be an artist. He astounded his family and relatives by his pencil drawings and sketches and by his moldings of clay. At the age 8, he wrote a Tagalog poem, "Sa Aking Mga Kabata," the theme of which revolves on the love of one’s language. In 1877, at the age of 16, he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree with an average of "excellent" from the Ateneo Municipal de Manila. In the same year, he enrolled in Philosophy and Letters at the University of Santo Tomas, while at the same time took courses leading to the degree of surveyor and expert assessor at the Ateneo. He finished the latter course on March 21, 1877 and passed the Surveyor’s examination on May 21, 1878; but because of his age, 17, he was not granted license to practice the profession until......

...We knew Rizal was our Philippine national hero but do you even wonder who Jose Rizal really is? Having this privilege to fully watch the documentary film about the life of a hero directed by Butch Nolasco made me think that it’s very rare to find such person who would give his own life knowing he have all those wealth and intelligence that others don’t have for the sake of his motherland and fellow citizens. If you would be dare to die for your country, will you have the courage to accept it given at this particular moment? That’s the question that surely most of us would decline, wouldn’t we? The documentary film of Jose Rizal shows his life starting from his young age up until the day he died. There featured all the information about his family, the schools and courses that Rizal entered and toke up, his travels across different nations, the particular people he had made friends with and those of his enemies as well, and of course his sacrifices he did for the success of the 2 novels that play an important role in the awakening of patriotism among Filipino patriots .It was also featured the women that Rizal had flings with. As I remembered Segunda Katigbak was Rizal’s First girlfriend while Leonor Rivera his cousin became his first love that lasted for 11 years until her parents arranged a wedding to Kipping. It’s a genuine frustration indeed for a person to be in that kind of situation. Despite Rizal is in the moment of great sorrow with how his relationship......

...soldiers with bayoneted rifles moved. A few meters behind, Rizal walked calmly, with his defense counsel (Lt. Luis Taviel de Andrade) on one side and two Jesuit priests (Fathers March and Vilaclara) on the other. More well armed soldiers marched behind him. Rizal was dressed elegantly in a black suit, black derby hat, black shoes, white shirt, and black tie. His arms were tied behind from elbow to elbow, but the rope was quite loose to give his arms freedom of movement. To the muffled sounds of the drums, the cavalcade somnolently marched slowly. There was a handful of spectators lining the street from Fort Santiago to the Plaza del Palacio in front of the Manila Cathedral. Everybody seemed to be out at Bagumbayan, where a vast crowd gathered to see how a martyr dies. Going through the narrow Postigo Gate, one of the gates of the city wall, the cavalcade reached the Malecon (now Bonifacio Drive), which was deserted. Rizal looked at the sky, and said to one of the priests: "How beautiful it is today, Father. What morning could be more serene! How clear is Corregidor and the mountains of Cavite! On mornings like this, I used to take a walk with my sweetheart". While passing in front of the Ateneo, he saw the college towers above the wallls. He asked: "Is that Ateneo, Father?" "Yes", replied the priest. They reached Bagumbayan Field. The spectators crowded a huge square formed by soldiers. The cavalcade entered this square. Rizal walked serenely to the place, where he was......

...Although José Rizal, now eleven years old, had passed a good entrance examination in Manila in June, 1872, he nearly failed to matriculate in theAteneo in July, because his mother's arrest had made him a month late, and because he looked so little, so slender, so young. He would not have been admitted at all but for the intercession of Dr. Manuel Burgos, a nephew of the recently executed Dr. José Burgos. When finally the boy was accepted, he went to mass and prayed fervently. (01) He had something to pray about and to study for! Tragedy had set purpose ablaze in his young soul --, purpose that would never die. He did not know how to help his home and country but he wouldfind a way! Following the rigid methodical habits which he had learned from his father and which were taught by his Jesuit teachers, he prepared a schedule so that he would not lose an hour: study and reading until four p.m.; four to five, exercise; five to six social and miscellaneous obligations. This careful husbanding of every minute began to show results almost at once. He began at the bottom of the school, but within a month he was "Emperor of Rome". The Ateneo had divided the students into two "empires", Roman and Carthaginian, to fight for academic supremacy. It was this war that soon brought young Rizal triumph and prizes. At the end of the first quarter he received the grade "excellent". When one of the teachers hurt his feelings he stopped trying for honors, so that at the end of the year he came...

...learn and love our own first as a symbol of being nationalistic. The western influences especially their languages are influential and embraced by the Filipinos without hesitations. Even I, I came to a point that I do not like and patronize OPMs and local films--- why? I believe that the language used is so “cheap”. This should not be! These foreign influences are rampant and contagious! Rizal is right in writing a poem that encourages us to enrich and love our own dialect, our own language. In the poem he cited, “Ang hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika, mas higit pa sa hayop at malansang isda…” I am one of those Filipino who is obviously guilty of the crime--- I hated to speak in Filipino even my text messages and Facebook status shows that English is my medium to express myself. As I read thoroughly the poem, I have realized that we still have the same issue in Rizal’s time. One good example is the teaching of Mother Tongue Language to the primary years of the pupils in the K-12 curriculum. Some understands its value but almost criticize it. “The youth are the hope of the nation” Rizal taught us that. I hope each of the Filipino people can understand and discover the value of teaching the Mother Tongue language to children. Yes, to speak in English in necessary to the era today but mind you, people, have you ever learned to love your own dialect as much as you love English? Are we really worthy to be called as Filipinos? Maybe, it is time for us to think, reflect, act......

...The movie Jose Rizal which was excellently played by Cesar Montano as the lead role was a heartwarming one that shows how Rizal runs his life. While watching the movie, I felt mixed emotions given the fact that it was made to help us, Filipinos, understand what our national hero had done for the country. It shows how Rizal really love his mother country for him to sacrificed his own life. The film also works through a series of flashback showing Rizal as a genius, a write, a doctor, an artist, a lover, a friend, a brother, a son that gives texture to his character. It shows the great explanation of the Philippine history, the nationalism and heroism in a non-violent manner, though, there were times that the characters speak in Spanish language and I couldn’t understand it unless I will read the subtitles. I could also say that the other characters weren’t having any difficulties in reciting their Spanish lines. The actors’ dedication for the film is inevitable especially Cesar Montano who is very perfect for the role of Rizal. His values and great performance as the lead actor is impeccable and has a great impact on me as the audience of the said film. Also, the supporting casts like Jhong Hilario who played as Rizal’s servant, Jaime Fabregas as Rizal’s attorney did a great job on portraying their role fluently. They made it easy for me to understand the flow of the story. However, there are also negative comments that I must say about the movie. The plot......

...Rizal's third letter from Heidelberg: Germany, Thursday, 11 March 1886 MISS TRINIDAD RIZAL MY DEAR SISTER TRINING, Since I left our country, I have received only four or five lines written by your hand, one or two insignificant news about you and nothing more. I don't know how you are and I cannot imagine your person. When I left you, you were very small. Now within two months you are going to be 18 years and in four years I suppose that you have grown up and you are becoming a young lady. At your age, German women seem to be 20 or 24 years, as much for their faces as for their ways.The German woman is serious, studious, and diligent, and as their clothes do not have plenty of color, and generally they have only three or four, they do not pay much attention to their clothes nor to jewels. They dress their hair simply, which is thin, but beautiful in their childhood. They go everywhere walking so nimbly or faster than men, carrying their books, their baskets, without minding anyone and only their own business. As I said to Pangoy, they are home-loving and they study cooking with as much diligence as they do music and drawing. If our sister María had been educated in Germany, she would have been notable, because German women are active and somewhat masculine. They are not afraid of men. They are more concerned with the substance than with appearances. Until now I have not heard women quarreling, which in Madrid is the daily bread. It is a pity that there in our...

He is regarded as the foremost Filipino patriot and is listed as one of the national heroes of the Philippines by National Heroes Committee.[2] His execution by the Spanish in 1896, a date marked annually as Rizal Day, a Philippine national holiday, was one of the causes of the Philippine Revolution.

He attended the Ateneo Municipal de Manila, earning a Bachelor of Arts, and enrolled in medicine at the University of Santo Tomas.

...Reflections on Rizal - Three Thoughts Tiny Dancer Hero There is this idea that heroes inevitably reflect their country. When you think about it historical heroes exist as receptacles of a nation’s hopes and dreams. They are the guiding lights, the individuals who helped shape the nature of a people. Heroes are, in other words, can be considered the soul and conscience of a country. Their philosophies, ideals, and examples acting as the benchmarks for right collective action. That, as well, is why each generation must recast their nation’s heroes in new forms and view them in new perspectives. Heroes and their actions, much like all of history, are consistently up for reinterpretation. Without that process they will never be relevant. A disturbing question to ask is if our heroes are really relevant today. As a result, studying how our heroes are approached and constructed in the public sphere gives a country an understanding of who they are as a people. Heroes are a reflection of the values of a people. And if that is the case, as I strongly suspect it is, then the way we currently construct Jose Rizal (the way we approach him and his legacy) does not speak too well of us. There is something faintly disturbing about the fact that more is written, and known, in popular society (and pop history) about how many languages Rizal spoke (and how many women he supposedly bedded) than the importance of his annotated Morga. Or even that there is this pervasive sense of Rizal......

...Jose Rizal at the University of Santo Tomas Gian Linardo Mari T. Estrella  Enrolment at the University of Santo Tomas Even if Rizal liked painting much, he was not then intending to make art as his profession. He was not yet certain of what course to pursue. In his Memorias de un estudiante, he says that he was still undecided then about the university career he would follow as the school year 1877-1878 is nearing. Different authors of Rizal give different answers on what and who influenced Rizal in opting what course to take. It is the question of who made the final choice, he himself, his mother, his father, his brother or the Jesuits. Rizal tells us that his mother was worried about him pursuing a university career in Manila because of her ingenuity, or possibly her motherly instinct. His mother Teodora feared that Rizal would come to a bad end just as the fate of ilustrados before like Father Burgos. Buthe does not say in memorias de un estudiante, he did not specify what her mother preferred for him. His brother Paciano discouraged him from taking law, because of the belief that Rizal would not be able to practice that profession due to the political conditions that time. In his memorias de un estudiante, he recalls: “I enrolled in Metaphysics because, aside From the fact that I had doubts about the career I should follow, my father wanted me to study it (Metaphysics).”  Very likely, Don Francisco had pictured Rizal having a career in Civil Law. And due to this,......
