20 years after its release, a digitally-restored version of 'Got 2 Believe' is streaming online

Romance is in the air as ABS-CBN Film Restoration is set to breathe new life into one of the most iconic Pinoy romantic flicks of the early 2000s: Got 2 Believe.

In the latest installment of Sagip Pelikula Spotlight, the works of veteran filmmaker Olivia M. Lamasan will take over this month's watchlist, starting with the digitally restored and remastered version of the Claudine Barretto and Rico Yan hit film.

In case you didn't know, the film revolves around Toni (Claudine), a wedding planner and a perennial bridesmaid who've always wanted a fairy-tale ending with her prince charming.

But when she turns 25, she feels resigned to being a hopeless romantic, accepting that she may be single for the rest of her life—until she crosses paths with Lorenz (Rico), a photographer who does not believe in happy endings.

After numerous attempts, Toni finally meets 'the one,' but she is left torn as to whom to fall in love with—her dream prince charming or the one who made her heart skip a beat? 

Truly, even 20 years since its 2002 theatrical release, Got 2 Believe remains one of the most well-received Pinoy romance flicks today, inspiring titles with its will-they-won't-they formula.

Apart from Got 2 Believe, audiences can watch more of Direk Olive's restored hits, including Maalaala Mo Kaya... The Movie, Milan, Sana Maulit Muli, and The Mistress.

You can catch Toni and Lorenz's amusing love story in all its digitally restored and remastered glory at for P150.
