José Rizal is a 1998 award-winning Filipino film biopic directed by Marilou Diaz-Abaya. It was GMA Films' entry to the 1998 Metro Manila Film Festival. It is touted as one of the biggest films ever made in the history of Philippine cinema with a record-breaking P80-million budget despite the fact that historical films are often notorious flops during that time. GMA's faith was rewarded. Released on Christmas Day, the movie packed theaters and swept awards ceremonies. The movie depicts the life of the Philippine national hero José Rizal, who was played by Cesar Montano.
