Ang Bayaning Third World (The Movie)

Seeking for The Truth with Closed Eyes

            ANG BAYANING Third World is a Tagalog movie portraying Dr. Jose Rizal’s life. Not really Rizal’s life, but what happened way back in his time. In this detective movie, the two protagonists who were planning to make a movie out of Rizal’s life seek for the truth. They wanted to make a movie about Rizal that will catch the attention of the people. They attempt to find out what really happened. It was unique how the movie was done. The two protagonists, while searching for the answers they wanted, unconsciously traveled way back in the 18th and 19th century just to talk to Rizal and to some people who were close to his heart; Dona Teodora, Paciano, Trining, Narcissa, and Josephine Bracken. They fire such questions, questions, and questions as they were oblivious to their ranting, oblivious to their words, oblivious to whom they were talking to, oblivious to the veracity that it was just an imagination. In doing so, they end up confused and mystified for all they have are only speculations. They do not know the truth but they’re trying to find out using theories and conjectures which led them not into the truth but just conclusions. Conclusions they just made up.

The two protagonists are like the representation of Filipinos. The two protagonists are so eager to know the truth just like us. We, Filipinos, are so eager to know the truth. We are so eager to know all the answers to the questions we fired as if not knowing the answers will kill us. Just like what the movie explained; will it matter if we know the truth? Will it matter if we know what really had happened? Will it change the fact that Dr. Jose Protacio Rizal Mercado Y Alonso Realonda is our national hero? “Kanya kanyang Rizal” —the phrase quoted in the movie said it all. It is based on ourselves what we believe is to be true.

I swear that after watching the movie, just like the characters in the said movie, I was confused ready to fire questions but then some questions are rather answered by questions too.
