I want to watch this Cinemalaya 2008 finalist. Setting: Davao City. Nice. We should make more movies set in Davao City. I believe we have a very interesting history. =) Dig up those stories filmmakers!

Concerto is about how, in the last part of World War II, a special piano concert is held in the forests of Davao. In these boondocks, a displaced Filipino family becomes acquainted with a group of Japanese officers, similarly camped nearby. Based on true stories from the director's family, Concerto celebrates a family whose reverence for life, expressed through their love of music and friendship, can survive even war, and shows how beauty and compassion can grow in even the harshest of conditions.
