Aishite Imasu (Tagalog w/subtitle) Netflix

Great Filipino movie with English subtitles available in Netflix: Aishite Imasu, about a young Filipino man, Ignacio, who is attracted to other men. The Japanese invade, and the Commander sees Ignacio, dressed as a woman, and called Inya, and falls in love. This serious drama is a sensitive exploration of gender role issues and same sex love. But it is also an exploration of patriotic loyalty, treason, guerrilla resistance, and some valid reasons why America might have been perceived as an enemy.
