Manila by Night: City After Dark

1980 NR

Set in Manila's edgiest hoods, Ishmael Bernal's ensemble drama explores the Philippine capital's seedier characters, including pimps, pushers and poverty-stricken prostitutes. A drug-dealing lesbian, a blind bathhouse worker and a gay clothing designer figure prominently into this unflinching trip through Manila's dark alleys. The talented cast features Cherie Gil, Mitch Valdez, Charito Solis, Orestes Ojeda, Rio Locsin and Bernardo Bernardo.
