A Filipino movie that has English as its main language isn’t always what’s offered in the Philippines. That’s why Kaizen Studios’ Antonio Diaz says it’s time for Filipino films to have a more global appeal. But the language isn’t the only appealing thing in ‘Way of the Cross.’
Way of the Cross is set against a small religious town in the Philippines, “WAY OF THE CROSS” follows Rogelio “Rogue” Marquez ( Anthony Diaz V), a Las Vegas based Filipino American FBI agent, whose estranged father living in the Philippines, is diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
Rogue travels to the Philippines to visit his dying father and half sister in Manila. A string of murders occur during holy week celebrations in the nearby town of San Antonio that send waves of terror among the local town people, and stuns the NBI and its top agent.
Rogue’s curiosity and FBI instincts lure him into a dark cat and mouse world of religious abstracts as he attempts to uncover the motivation behind these murders in hopes to solve the mystery.
We’ve seen the movie, and yes, the quality is outstanding. The shots, the color, the music, the editing, every technical aspect of the film is commendable.
It is quite weird to hear the Filipino actors speaking in English, but you’ll get used to it.
WAY OF THE CROSS is being produced by KAIZEN STUDIOS, Co. Ltd., which belongs to a International Holdings Company called, ZENZA GLOBAL.
