ADOBO is a tasty dish of a movie. A tender film with genuine insight into
the urban heart. The way it treats the totally non-ethnic aspects of life--love,
loneliness, dying, friendship--is what makes this Filipino film so attractive
and also so American."
--John Anderson, New York Newsday (Chairman, New York Film Critics Circle)
ADOBO is an intimate, good-humored comedy with lots of heart. Delicious
and very funny!"
--Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times (Chairman, Los Angeles Film Critics
ADOBO is sophisticated and entertaining. A solid step forward for the
emerging Philippine-American cinema."
