“I think the new generation and the coming generation would learn more about history. Our ancestors and fathers always say that if you want to know the future you always have to go back to the past. It is a great movie to watch, it is something that will teach us a lot, and it is something more than just a movie,” said Fahed Alblooshi

explained: “This story needs to be remembered and told to future and current generations. I strongly recommend that anyone and everyone see this film.”

“The Filipinos will really feel very proud of President Quezon,” said JJ Jarder
right after watching the film. She adds that “doon mo rin mapi-feel 'yong independence na tinatamasa natin ngayon, we really have to give importance to this because people from the past really worked hard for this.”
On the other hand, Lou Parroco
said, “I did not expect it will make me feel prouder being a Filipino as soon as I get out of this cinema. The film will make you feel proud to be a Filipino. Actually, it will make you happy being a Filipino. It is a big legacy of President Quezon that we should really be very proud of as Filipinos.”
