From Audiences, Critics, Child Welfare Advocates, International Programmers:
"Sobrang galing. It is a must-see!" - Dr. Honey Carandang, Child Psychologist
The film got three minutes of standing ovation. Four encore applause during the end credits. Two national artists cheering and 1,800 people shouting “Bravo!". Cinemanyak Dennis blog
“Boses takes a grim situation (child abuse), matches it with high-art therapy (classical music), and unfolds the narrative with a strong dose of pleasure, as startling in its effectiveness as it is unexpected…betokens not just some of the best moments of the local industry, but also that of Classical Hollywood – Joel David,Professor and Critic, Korea
An extraordinary film from the Philippines, it is my personal choice, my favourite and must-see Chuck Boller, Executive Director, Hawaii Int’l Film Festival
"BOSES will soothe the uneasy, fearful, troubled breast ... -without being preachy and didactic. Never has a local movie integrated social advocacy and the promotion of classical music so seamlessly, movingly, and beautifully. … movie collaboration at its creative best." - Mario Hernando, Malaya, Urian
Boses should be seen and enjoyed by as many people as possible, especially the young and those who have anything to do with the young…, CBCP Cinema Should be viewed by everyone. PG-13. MTRCB
If there is anything that comes to near perfection-as a film that is-
I’d say it is Boses. Butch Francisco , Philippine Star, Urian
