Philippine Culture and La Visa Loca

If you're interested in Philippine culture, watch the movie "La Visa Loca"

The movie talks about the life of driver Jess Huson (Robin Padilla) who's struggling to get a U.S. visa, so that he can fly to the US, work as a nurse aide, and be with his girlfriend Annette. The story reveals various aspects about Philippine culture: Holy Week, spiritists, how Pinoys look at tourists, crime and punishment, families broken and mended, AM radio, food, and choices.

If you listen carefully, you'll catch quite a number of jokes. Try not to laugh too loudly. :-)

If you groan "Oh no, not another Robin Padilla film!" then you're in for a surprise. You won't see the usual swaggering macho action star persona. You won't hear the usual slurred, string-your-words-together Padilla.

You'll find an intelligent, relaxed, perfectly-cast Robin Padilla. His performance is "the best in the world!"
