"Spanish period set adventure 1898, LOS ULTIMOS DE FILIPINAS which is out in Spanish cinemas this December. In the late nineteenth century in the Philippines, a Spanish squad was surrounded in the town of Baler by Filipino revolutionaries for about a year. In December 1898, with the signing of the Treaty of Paris between Spain and the US, the war was finally ended between the two countries and Spain ceded sovereignty over the Philippines to the United States. This film tells the story of the squad, known as "The Last of the Philippines". Luis Tosar, Javier Gutiérrez, Álvaro Cervantes lead the cast"
