Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos-Recto (born Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos November 3, 1953 in Bamban, Tarlac), commonly known as Vilma Santos-Recto or Ate Vi is a Filipino actress and box office queen for almost four decades. One of the original Philippine movie queens, she rose up to become the versatile actress that has been given the fitting title of “Star for All Seasons” because of her capacity to adapt to the changing mores and values of the Filipino woman, giving a face to their plight and struggles, albeit in success both critically and box-office wise in some of Philippine cinema’s classics such as Trudis Liit (1963), Lipad, Darna, Lipad (1973), Burlesk Queen (1977), Relasyon (1982), Sister Stella L. (1984), Alyas Baby Tsina (1984), Pahiram ng Isang Umaga (1989), Dahil Mahal Kita: The Dolzura Cortez Story (1993), Anak (2000) and Dekada ’70 (2002). She is currently the governor of Batangas, Philippines (2012)(Wikipedia).

Special Film: Bilibid Boys (1981)


"...Sa unang panonood pa lamang ng Bilibid Boys (Regal Films, Inc., 1981), madali nang malaman ang pakay at hangad ng ganitong uri ng pelikula. Payak lamang ang nais itumbok ng pelikula at siyempre pa bukod sa walang patumanggang bakbakan, suntukan, habulan at patayan, hinaluan din ito ng kung anu-anong sangkap tulad ng iyakan, sigawan, konting seks at pagpapatawa upang ikasiya ng manonood nito. At bakit nga hindi kung pakakaisiping ang tinatalakay ng Bilibid Boys ay kasaysayan ng mga kabataang naligaw ng landas dahil sa panggrupong impluwensiya. Sa bandang ito, naiiba ang pelikula dahil walang iisang protagonista, hati-hati ang maraming tauhan sa daloy ng naratibo na pinag-isa ng tema. Dahil payak lamang ang nais ipahatid at aliw ang pangunahing layon nito, pinalabas ng pelikula na isang simpleng di pagkakaunawaan lamang sa pagitan nina Don (Jimi Melendez) at Arnold (Allan Valenzuela) ang naging puno't dulo ng kaguluhang kinsangkutan ng barkadang sina Andong (Al Tantay), Noel (Mark Gil), Steve (Alfie Anido), Butch (Gabby Concepcion), Luga (William Martinez) at Caloy (Choy Acuna). Pinalabas ng pelikula ang salimuot ng karanasang pinagdaanan ng mga binata sa loob ng bilangguan. Ang hindi tinlakay sa Bilibid Boys ay ang ilang mahahalagang bagay ukol sa kalagayang panlipunang higit ang kinalaman sa mga isyung inihain ng pelikula..." - Jojo Devera (READ MORE)
