Zimatar (1982)


In this Filipino adventure, King Dalmacious of Salina has three sons by his first wife. When the new Queen Farida becomes pregnant, he prays for her to give birth to a daughter, but the daughter is stillborn. In his grief, the king turns to a wise hermit. The hermit then predicts that the Queen could still give him a daughter, providing they drink the nectar of the Golden Flower. Stars J.C. Bonnin, Ace Vergel and Al Tantay. Also with Michael De Mesa and Rosemarie Gil. (In German language).

Ace Vergel was dubbed the “The Original Bad Boy of Filipino films.” A warrant for his arrest was issued in Caloocan City for a rape charge filed against him in 2000, but he was later released. Vergel was also linked to illegal drugs, but that case against him was also dismissed. He died from a heart attack on December 15th, 2007. He was 55.
