In the film Dr. Jose Rizal is a funny child. the 7th kid of Francisco Mercado Rizal and Teodora Alonso y Quintos. was born in Calamba. Laguna. on June 19. 1861. Francisco Mercado was 43-years old when Rizal was born. holding more than mean tallness ; his face was serious and baronial. He was a adult male of few words. dignified and hospitable. Having studied in the Colegio de San Jose in Manila. he possessed an simple instruction that was sufficient to successfully transport out the direction of the big agricultural belongingss that were leased to him. He was the first Mercado from the neighbouring town of Binan to settle in Calamba. Teodora Alonzo. who doubtless was the most dramatic personality in the household circle. owing to her intelligence. civilization and temperament. A well-read individual. She knew how to appreciate literature. corrected her son’s poetries and guided him in his survey of rhetoric ; she had a good cognition of mathematics.
His parents had 11 kids: Saturnina. Paciano. Narcisa. Olimpia. Lucia. Maria. Jose. Concepcion. Josefa. Trinidad and Soledad. When he was merely a child. his brother Paciano told him about the GOMBURZA. Barely three old ages old. Rizal learned the alphabet from his female parent. His female parent taught him how to read and compose. I think Paciano played a immense function in Jose Rizal’s personality. Paciano. keeping up the sacred fire of nationalism. was able to convey this fire to the psyche of Jose. The shadow of Paciano may be clearly visualized in the image of Rizal. In his kernel of the highest and purest of ideals. He studied at Colegio de San Juan de Letran and he graduated from Ateneo Municipal de Manila. In the film. when Dr. Jose Rizal was analyzing he was fearless. he asks his instructors bold inquiries although he was a Indio. and he besides protected other Indios when Spanish pupils bullied them.
