Kita Kita is a romantic comedy-drama film directed by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo and was released in 2017. The film stars Alessandra de Rossi as Lea, a Filipina tour guide in Japan, and Empoy Marquez as Tonyo, a Filipino expatriate who is suffering from heartbreak. Junpei Yamamoto also appears in his debut role as Yusuke, a charming Japanese photographer.

The story follows Lea as she enjoys her well-ordered life as a tour guide in Sapporo, Japan. She leads a comfortable life in a small flat and earns enough to live a contented life. However, one day, everything changes when her fiancé leaves her for another woman without even a goodbye.

Feeling lost and broken after her unfortunate incident, Lea becomes blind. Her world turns to darkness, and she isolates herself from her surroundings, becoming suspicious of everyone. She lives her life in solitude, afraid to meet people due to her fear of being hurt again.

It is then that she meets Tonyo, an overly confident and care-free man who happens to be her neighbor. Despite his somewhat unpleasant first impression, Tonyo emerges as her only source of hope and company. The two form an unlikely friendship as he tries to help Lea to regain her confidence and find meaning in life once more.

Throughout the course of their friendship, Tonyo and Lea start developing feelings for each other, but Tonyo is unaware of Lea's blindness. As a result, Lea decides not to reveal her condition to him, fearing that Tonyo might pity her or leave her like her past fiance.

The two spend their days having fun and enjoying the beautiful sights of Hokkaido, and Tonyo's infectious energy and jokes make Lea forget her troubles, even if it's only temporary. Meanwhile, Tonyo slowly begins to realize his feelings for Lea but refrains from telling her, not wanting to risk their unique connection.

Kita Kita is a film that beautifully captures the rawness of pain and how it can make one feel helpless and alone. However, it also shows how strong love and companionship can be and how they can help lift one out of the depths of despair.

The film stands out with its unique use of cinematography, sound design, and the stunning visuals of Hokkaido that contribute to the overall atmosphere of the movie. The acting from both Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy Marquez is top-notch, and they play their roles with such sincerity that their on-screen chemistry is palpable.
