When Kita Kita's trailer first came out, we were honestly intrigued. But we had no idea it would be such a big hit when it came out in theaters.
Sigrid Bernardo's rom-com is about Lea (Alessandra de Rossi), a Filipina tour guide working in Sapporo, Japan, who goes blind after she discovers that her Japanese boyfriend has been cheating on her. Tonyo (Empoy Marquez), also a Filipino, appears in her life after going blind and they start to develop a friendship and even a romantic relationship.
There are movies that make us go on and on about how good they are or how much we loved them, except that Kita Kita isn't one of those. We're just in awe of how beautiful everything about it is. And in the last few scenes, we were dumbfounded, silent.
So, we're letting these posts from social media tell you why you need to watch it. because it's definitely one movie you shouldn't miss watching on the big screen this year.
2. Ugh, Sigrid Bernardo, why you do this to us?!
3. You have to embrace the whole story with open arms.
