Dekada '70 (English: "The ’70s") is a 2002 Filipino drama film released based on the acclaimed novel by Filipino author, Lualhati Bautista. The film was restored by the ABS-CBN Film Archive.

Synopsis[edit]

The film tells the story of a middle-class family in 1970s Philippines, and how they become aware of the political policies that have ultimately led to state repression and Martial Law.

Vilma Santos stars as Amanda Bartolome, who realises the implications of living under a dictatorship after sorting out the contradictory reactions of her husband and five sons. Her husband, Julián (Christopher de Leon), supports their eldest son Julian, or "Jules" (Piolo Pascual), in his efforts to rail against the government and who later joins the underground Kilusán (Movement); he also refuses Amanda her wish to find a job. Their second son, Isagani, or "Gani" (Carlos Agassi), is in the United States Navy. Their third son, Emmanuel, or "Em" (Marvin Agustin), writes illegal political exposés and other banned literature. The fourth son, Jason, (Danilo Barrios), was found stabbed to death by corrupt policemen, and the youngest, Bingo (John Wayne Sace), is still a carefree adolescent. She also gains two daughters-in-law: Gani fathers Annaliza with his girlfriend, Evelyn (Dimples Romana), while Jules is revealed to have wed Mara (Ana Capri), a fellow member of the Kilusán and mother of their son.
