REMEMBERING: BURLESK KING FULL MOVIE
Published April 20, 2013 by putrizk
Harry went to Manila with his friend James to exact vengeance on his abusive father who used to pimp him and killed his mother. He ended up working as a Macho dancer in a gay club and became involved with a gay writer and a hooker. When he set out to look for his father to avenge his mother’s death, he found him dying of AIDS in a shack in squatter’s area and told him that his mother was alive after all. He looked for his mother and got reunited with her who taught him to forgive his father. His father eventually dies.
I never thought that the film was more than just about the carnal escapades of Manila’s night life, it was actually a heart warming movie of family struggles, friendship, commitment, forgiveness, love and the search for happiness. It is definitely a must watch for the mature audience and clearly presents in a human and non-judgemental way the struggle for acceptance. In the end, the movie presents the timeless and perennial theme of human life, that love indeed does conquer all, that friendships matter and that family is family, no matter what.
