What critics say about "Ang Larawan"? Well, check out their comments below:

 “A stirring musical drama… a class act… impeccably performed… beautifully decorated… highly emotional and tremendously satisfying finale.” – Richard Kuipers, Variety

“A lavish, absorbing family drama… an elaborate feast of the eyes… Rolando Tinio’s elegantly written lyrics… Ryan Cayabyab’s affecting soaring score has found its heartbeat” – Oliver Oliveros, Broadway World

“If you’re a fan of #PauloAvelino, I urge you to watch his stellar #AngLarawan.  He doesn’t sing as well as the others, but his acting!
He will be one of the greatest as he continues to grow!” – Lea Salonga, Twitter

“Joanna Ampil, in her first film, has delivered the strongest performance… Her performance at the end of Act 1 alone is heart-rending, a cry that stays with you for the rest of the movie.” – Paolo Barazon, Cinemabravo.com

“But no one speaks and sings more eloquently than Paula and Candida. Ampil and Alejandro’s voices and performances soar as the sisters resist the temptation of a quick fix in the belief that their father’s work represents something far more valuable than money.” - Richard Kuipers, Variety

“A new film adaptation of the beloved 1950 Filipino play “A Portrait of the Artist as Filipino: An Elegy in Three Scenes” should win over anyone, regardless of national origin, who appreciates a musical that delivers an emotional wallop. This evocative, dark-edged work does justice to the literary legacy of the late Nick Joaquin, the Philippines’ greatest modern writer, poet, and playwright.”
- Lawrence Harmon, The Boston Globe

“This is a film that will not only entertain you with its garish yet top-notch production value but will also make you think how we consider. what is important in our personal lives.” – Jed Chua, ReelAdvice.net
