Kakaibang uri ng pag-asa ang mararamdaman ng mga makakapanood ng heart-wrenching tale of hardship na ito. Based on an 80s TV show ang pelikulang ito, at medyo global ang reach niya. May fans siya from all over, mapa-Middle East man yan hanggang South America. At paano namang hindi papatok, eh napaka-universal ng kuwento. The whole story of the series ay isang mala-epikong rags to riches ng isang peasant girl sa Japan na, through perseverance and hope, ay naging may-ari ng isang chain ng shopping centers pagtanda niya. Kaso syempre, hindi kasya sa movie format ang ganito kahabang kuwento (unless si Lav Diaz ang direktor mo), kaya this new movie focuses on her beginnings lang muna. If this will be a franchise, hindi ko pa naresearch. Pero sana.

This movie, quite predictably, is a patok for me. Ito’y sa kadahilanang through this girl named Oshin, marami ang mga natuto na at matututo pa na with thirst for knowledge, earnestness, graceful resilience and all around good vibes, puwede mong baguhin ang itinadhana ng society para sayo. All it takes is for one to just really want it. Wala nang mas hopeful at positive pa diyan.
