Up for binge-watching some classic Filipino movies? Restored versions of iconic films like Himala, Markova: Comfort Gay, Oro, Plata, Mata, One More Chance, and Dubai are now available to stream on Netflix.

ABS-CBN Film Restoration and its Sagip Pelikula initiative will be bringing remastered classics across all genres—from drama, romance, comedy, and horror—to the streaming platform up until the end of 2022.

Here's a list of the classics you can stream now on Netflix.

Oro, Plata, Mata

A 1982 historical war-drama, Oro, Plata, Mata follows two haciendero families on the island of Negros amid World War II. The families escape to a jungle hideaway, but are soon faced with the violence of war.

The classic film stars Sandy Andolong, Liza Lorena, Ronnie Lazaro, Joel Torre, and the late Cherie Gil.


Director Ishmael Bernal's Himala stars Nora Aunor as Elsa, a young woman from the province who claims to have seen the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. She later heals people with various ailments.

This 1982 flick went on to win awards from the Metro Manila Film Festival and the Berlin Film Festival.

Markova: Comfort Gay

Meanwhile, one of the late Dolphy's most iconic films of all time, Markova: Comfort Gay follows a gay man recalling living in the Philippines during World War II. It also stars two of Dolphy's sons Eric and Jeffrey Quizon as younger versions of Walter Dempster Jr.

One More Chance

One of the most quotable Pinoy romantic movies of all time is now on Netflix. Relive the story of longtime couple Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) and Basha (Bea Alonzo) who, after facing a series of misunderstandings, eventually break up.

Do you still remember all of the lines from this heartbreaking flick? Here's one we'd doubt you'll forget: "She had me at my worst. You had me at my best at binaliwala mo lang lahat 'yun." 

Now That I Have You

Another John Lloyd-Bea starrer, Now That I Have You sees two strangers riding the MRT form an unlikely bond. Bea's Betsy is a hopeless romantic thinking John Lloyd's Michael would be her ideal man, but it turns out to be the opposite.

The 2004 romance is arriving on Netflix on Nov. 11.


After working for nine years in Dubai, Raffy (Aga Mulach) is finally at the cusp of fulfilling his lifelong dream to move to Canada with his younger brother Andrew (John Lloyd Cruz). However, things go awry as Andrew falls in love with one of Raffy's girlfriends.

Ang Cute Ng Ina Mo

This 2007 drama-comedy follows a young woman who looks for reasons to reject her estranged mother, who has returned after 20 years. Ang Cute Ng Ina Mo stars Ai-Ai delas Alas, Anne Curtis, Luis Manzano, Eugene Domingo, and John Lapus.

Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo

First-time parents Angie (Judy Ann Santos) and Jed (Ryan Agoncillo) leave their kid at home for a long-delayed honeymoon. Their quarreling mothers (Gloria Diaz and Gina Pareño) sew chaos as self-appointed caretakers.
