Irma Adlawan and Ina Raymundo , stars as mother and daughter in this Pinoy bold movie. Raymundo as the subject of her grandfather's (Nante Montreal) affections, eventually gets raped, in news of this a gung-ho filmmaker and his scriptwriter, interested in it approaches the family in hopes to get the heartfelt story across. Unbeknown to Adlawan is that what is extremely personal will get skewered on screen. As scenes from the film flashes before the audiences eyes, we also get a glimpse of the truth behind it. And most often than not, what we see is farther from the truth. In the finished film, we see Jacklyn Jose portraying Adlawan, Klaudia Koronel as Raymundo, and the cynical Dante Rivero as the soulless grandfather.
After being through the wringer, the mother and daughter, feels more vulnerable when they first sold their life. We feel their anguish as they are mocked as cutouts, as if they actually consented in the appalling acts of incest. The awful truth is made fun of, allowing viewers of the film take in what suppose to be horrifying, but as a soft p*rn flick to satisfy the urges. Tuhog (Larger than Life) proves to be one of 2001's best Filipino feature.
