MANILA -- No doubt many Filipinos are familiar with "Kita Kita," this quirky, indie rom com, starring Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy, which captured the hearts of many back in 2017.
It was made with a modest budget of P10 million, but largely due to its lead stars' charm and undeniable chemistry, and partly thanks to its scenic Japanese setting, it went on to earn more than P300 million that year to become the highest grossing indie Filipino film of all time.
As announced this Wednesday, there's now an opportunity for those who fell in love with the movie the first time around to revisit it via the Indonesian remake, ""Cinta Itu Buta," or "Love is Blind."
It was given a wide release starting ob November 13, according to Viva Films. Check out the trailer for it below:
"Kita Kita" is about a woman who becomes temporarily blind following a heartbreak, and her budding relationship with a tour guide who had just moved next door in Sapporo.
The Indonesian remake stars Shandy Aulia and Dodit Mulyanto, and was directed by Rachmania Arunita.
It was made in cooperation with film's original producers, Spring Films.
