SINGAPORE—March 2, 2023— Prime Video has released the teaser key art for the new Amazon Original Movie Walang KaParis, a romantic drama which reunites the breakout tandem of Alessandra De Rossi and Empoy Marquez, popularly known as Alempoy. Walang KaParis is helmed by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo, the director of Kita Kita (I See You), which catapulted the pair to fame in 2017. Viewers will be able to stream the film exclusively on Prime Video starting March 23 in 240 countries and territories worldwide, alongside Kita Kita (I See You).
Walang KaParis revolves around Jojo (Empoy Marquez), a Filipino artist in Paris who has had many lovers, but constantly finds himself desperate to fill the chasm in his life occupied by the mysterious muse of his paintings. For years, his heart is held captive by a woman with no name and no history. Like a compass, he looks for her in every girl he meets, hoping she will be “the one.” One day, a woman named Marie (Alessandra De Rossi) walks up to him and claims to be the subject of his paintings.
Produced by Spring Films and Viva Films, Walang KaParis—which literally means “no match” in Tagalog—is a play on the story’s setting, one of the most romantic places in the world, Paris. Singer KZ Tandingan returns to record the original soundtrack for the new Alempoy movie.
“A few weeks after Prime Video debuted its first Filipino Amazon Original 10 Little Mistresses, we are thrilled to bring another quality Filipino movie to global audiences with Walang KaParis,” said David Simonsen, director of Prime Video, Southeast Asia. “We’re always on the lookout for great stories that are uniquely local and highly enjoyable, and we’re excited to work with more Filipino talents to bring diverse stories to Prime Video members in the Philippines and across the globe.”
