Enchong Dee and Janine Gutierrez team up for a movie that brings a true-to-life comedy drama in the movie ELISE. This is Regal entertainment's opening salvo for the year 2019.

ELISE is Enchong Dee and Janine Gutierrez's reunion in the big screen after their previous movie in 2016 entitled Lia.

This time, Enchong, a Kapamilya star, and Janine, a Kapuso star, pair up for a movie that tackles about finding your soulmate and seeking your purpose in life.

What is special about this movie is that it is based on real life events, which was revealed by director Joel Ferrer.

"It's a biopic romantic comedy that depicts events in the life of Bert (played by Enchong), who is quick-witted but sickly emotional and independent guy, who falls for Elise (played by Janine), who is a strong tough, independent woman."

Early on since childhood, Bert developed feelings for Elise. But puppy love is not yet something that should be taken seriously.

Later on, they get separated to pursue education, chase their dreams for a bright future. In short, both of them move on with their lives.

But years after, their paths cross and old feelings get rekindled. Unfortunately, their situation is different now, they are not young kids anymore and love is not a children's game.

New struggles arise when their situations and people around them do not work in their favor.

Are they willing to beat the odds to be finally together?

Direk Joel clarifies that ELISE is not just a love story.

"It's a long journey from start to finish. This is a story of finding your purpose in life. We start from naging sila na bata, ganyan."

"It talks about love, moving on, loving again, chasing, and finidng your dream , and your values."

Janine explained, "ELISE is a lifelong love story about these people na parang their whole lives parang nag-i-intertwine ang mga buhay nila. Ang tanong ay magkakatuluyan ba ang first love nila o hindi."

For his part, Enchong points out that the fact that this happened in real lfie makes it a movie worth watching.

"Nangyari siya sa tunay na buhay. it's a biopic. ang hirap kasi minsan tatanungin ng tao, 'Posible ba 'to? nangyayari ba talaga ito?' The fact taht it's a love story na coming from a person na specially close to Direk, I think yun yung part na maganda kasi may pinagkukuhaan kami ng tunay na kwento."
