Movie Info

The screenplay, written by Mario O'Hara and Lamberto E. Antonio, is based on the teleplay of the same name created by O'Hara. Set in the slums of Tondo, Manila, the film stars Hilda Koronel as the eponymous character, the young daughter of a resentful mother (Mona Lisa) whose much-younger lover (Ruel Vernal) rapes her. Following her assault as well as the betrayal of her own lover (Rez Cortez), Insiang settles revenge. A representation of urban poverty, the film explores themes of betrayal, revenge, and despair.

Audience Reviews for Insiang


Powerful Shakesperean tragedy with the slums as the primary setting in this Brocka film. "Insiang" is the evidence that Lino Brocka is a master, not only of Philippine cinema, but of opening sequences.
