Over Again
Starting Over Again, is not the usual love story that depicts a man and a woman who meet and fall in love and live happily ever after. In contrast, the film is centered on the story of two former lovers who meet for the very first time after their break-up. The film dares to pose the question on whether or not romantic love between two people who strayed apart could truly be rekindled despite the passage of time. The lovers in the film, as portrayed by Piolo and Toni, are faced with the seemingly insurmountable task of dealing with a huge unfinished business in their failed relationship.

Fall in love all over again in a different kind of love story this Valentine with Star Cinema’s 20th anniversary presentation Starting Over Again with Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga.

"Starting over Again" follows the love story of Ginny (Toni) and Marco (Piolo). They met on campus where Ginny was an Architecture student, while Marco is a professor. Ginny pursued Marco, her crush.

In time, Marco also fell for Ginny and they began a one-of-a-kind love story. Unfortunately, their relationship ended when she left for no apparent reason. When she returned, Ginny found herself wanting to rekindle her past with Marco. Can her love be enough for him to forget the pains of the past? Can they ever start over again?

Starting Over Again is Olivia M. Lamasan’s 11th full-length feature film under Star Cinema. Her impressive body of work comprises some of Star Cinema’s most unforgettable and classic love stories which include Hanggang Kailan Kita (Mamahalin, Maalaala Mo Kaya, Sana Maulit Muii, Minsan Minahal Kita, Madrasta, Got 2 Believe, Milan, In My Life, In The Name Of Love, and 2012’s blockbuster hit The Mistress. With the film outfit’s greatest love stories under her belt, Star Cinema’s anniversary celebration will not be complete without an Olivia M. Lamasan film.

“I’ve always wanted to work with Toni Gonzaga and it has been years since I worked with Piolo Pascual,” says Lamasan, who is fondly called Inang by the industry. “I wanted to do a light romantic film again since the last movie that I directed that falls in that category was Got 2 Believe which was way back in 2002. It was just a matter of putting all the right elements together and looking for the perfect material that will best work with the very first big-screen team-up of Piolo and Toni who are two of ABS-CBN’s biggest stars.”

“A lot of people have been waiting for the big film collaboration of Piolo and Toni and I’m very happy that Star Cinema entrusted this movie to me,” explains Inang. “Piolo and Toni were first seen in a commercial 13 years ago and they never really worked on a big and major project like this, so even they themselves are very excited.”

Inang openly admits that she has missed working with Piolo whom she last worked with in 2004’s Milan. “He is such a humble and brilliant actor. Piolo’s dedication to his craft is unbelievable.” As for Toni, Inang is very impressed with her timing and professionalism. “Toni loves what she’s doing and she is filled with so much energy and passion with everything she does. Her timing is impeccable and she is a thinking actor. It’s a joy to work with such talented artists like Piolo and Toni.”

Piolo Pascual has worked with award-winning director Olivia M. Lamasan in “Milan” back in 2004, and now, they reunite for the movie “Starting Over Again.”

“Milan remains to be one of my top three favorite films. Working with Inang is like going to school because I always learn something new from her everyday. She is fantastic and learning never stops with Inang.”

While Piolo endearingly refers to Olive as both mentor and teacher. 

In his years in the business, Piolo thought that he knew everything, but working and reuniting with Direk Olive made him realize that there are still a lot of things that he has to learn

Toni on the other hand sees Lamasan as an iconic figure in the film industry that she is honored to work with for the very first time. “Inang is awesome. She is a dream to work with. I’ve been waiting for a long time to finally work with Piolo and it has always been in my bucket list to do an Olive Lamasan movie. Now it’s finally done. I couldn’t contain my happiness when I learned that this project is pushing though. This is a major highlight of my career.”

“Starting over again could mean a lot of things,” Inang shared. 

“We should all be ready to forgive, move-on, and grow in whatever choice we make for love. We should all let go of emotional baggage to live a life with no regrets. You have to watch the movie to find out what we mean when we say starting over again.”



Starting Over Again is written by Carmi Raymundo and it also stars Iza Calzado, Joross Gamboa, Bryan Santos, Beauty Gonzales, Cai Cortez, and Edgar Allan Guzman. Starting Over Again is showing in all cinemas nationwide starting Feb. 12.
This is the movie theme song by Lani Misalucha.


And when I hold you in my arms I promise you
You're gonna feel a love that's beautiful and new
This time I'll love you even better than I ever did before
And you'll be in my heart forevermore

We, we're just too young to know we fell in love and let it go
So easy to say the words goodbye, so hard to let the feelings die
I know how much I need you now, the time is turning back somehow
As soon as our hearts and soul unite
I know for sure we'll get the feeling's right

And now we're starting over again, it's not the easiest thing to do
I'm feeling inside again, 'cause every time I looked at you
I know we're starting over again, this time we'll leave all the pain away
Welcome home my lover and friend, we are starting over, over again

If we never leaved alone, then we might have never known
All the times we spent apart, all we did was break each other's heart

And when I hold you in my arms I promise you
You're gonna feel the love that's beautiful and new
This time I'll love you even better, than I ever did before
And you'll be in my heart forever more

And now we're starting over again, it's not the easiest thing to do
I'm feeling inside again, 'cause every time I looked at you
I know we're starting over again, this time we'll leave all the pain away
Welcome home my lover and friend, we are starting over, over again

Now we're starting over again, this time we'll chase all the rain away
Welcome home my lover and friend, we are starting over, over again
We are starting over over again
