Forget the movie Brokeback Mountain movie, according to Joel Lamangan, this movie script was developed even before the Brokeback mania hits the world cinema, there are many times that this script was rejected and now... with the new trend of gay story in movies and also TV series like the My Husband's lover, the movie Lihis can now fit in and I think everyone are now comfortable with it and to watch two gay NPA soldiers in a relationship. This movie should be called... My NPA husband's lover. For me this is very different, and first time to see gay NPA soldiers in love.
warning: the movie trailer is bit NSFW and R-18. ( see two hunks in a ping pong bout)
Set in the 70s, two young male NPA warriors find themselves entangled in a web of frustrations, despair, and victory as they struggle to fight for their love in the middle of war against despotism and dictatorship.Lihis is a story of a fight for freedom and against bigotry.
