Kita Kita : My Two Cents

A lot of good reviews have come out about “Kita Kita” – a romantic comedy film starring Alessandra De Rossi and Empoy Marquez and directed by Sigrid Bernardo.  The unlikely pairing of the actors is what made this initially attractive to curious viewers like me. With the tagline “ang love team na hindi mo inakala,” Lea and Tonyo are two unforgettable characters played well by Alex and Empoy.

Set in the quaint Sapporo City in Japan, it was one delightful and heartwarming love story. Lea suffered temporary blindness when she discovered that her fiancé is cheating on her and her neighbor Tonyo befriended her. The friendship develops as they went around the beautiful places in Sapporo and eventually romance followed.

Though the movie ran for roughly one and a half hours, it felt even shorter. Perhaps because it was fun to watch given that there were many comedic moments though the latter half made us cry.  It was one bittersweet story and I would never be able to listen to “Two Less Lonely People” in the same way again. It would always remind me of Tonyo and Lea and how my heart ached at the sight of a blindfolded woman in picturesque destinations and of bananas and hearts dancing.

  1. I found it amusing at first but by the end I was less enamoured. I felt that the jokes Tonyo came out with were pretty awful and the story was trite. The director herself was absolutely fun to be around, though.
