Tanging Yaman is a 2000 Filipino religious-family drama film produced by Star Cinema. Directed by Laurice Guillen, the film garnered several awards, especially at the 2000 Metro Manila Film Festival, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress.

The movie's title came from a liturgical composition by Manoling Francisco, SJ and sung by Carol Banawa.

The success of this religious-family drama film was followed ten years later by "Sa 'Yo Lamang", also directed by Laurice Guillen. The film is set to be restored by ABS-CBN Film Archive.


Separated by both physical and emotional distance, siblings Danny (Johnny Delgado), Art (Edu Manzano) and Grace (Dina Bonnevie) settle a land dispute whilst their mother Dolores "Loleng" Rosales (Gloria Romero) succumbs to debilitating disease. Old resentments begin to surface and spill over to the next generation as they cope with Loleng's sickness and the tract of land left to them by their deceased father. [1]
