Movie Review: Little Cindy by Billy Bob Ndive Lifongo

Little CindyLittle Cindy is a movie that has balanced all its features to make a great movie. All the characters and roles make the plot come to life. The costumes, soundtrack and graphics were a plus as they enhanced the emotions and feelings of every line in the story. The movie falls in the genre of feature films with Mayohchu Ebai playing the role of Little Cindy and she does an excellent interpretation of her role.

The main idea behind the film is that life is filled with unknown surprises. The atmosphere in the movie quickly switches from a happy and cosy one to a tensed and at the same time captivating one. Having the atmosphere changed in a movie, emphasizes that what is happening is actually serious and will have consequences. The whole plot takes a tremendous turn when Mark Alom (Libota Macdonald) finds out Cindy is not his. All the love and affection he had towards her suddenly turns to hatred and despise. This movie had as cast the likes of Libota Mac Donald, Solange Orock, Mayohchu, Syndy Emade, Valery Nchifor, Stephanie Tum, Lyno Lovert, Hexy Val and a host of others. This movie portrays the maturity of African movies in the lenses of a Cameroonian film director Mr Bob Billy.
Little Cindy centres around the disappearance of a 7yr old, Cindy during a party thrown for her by her parents at their residence. Her mother and father Mr and Mrs Alom decide to do something special for their kid which didn’t turn out as they planned due to an unexpected twist. What we can promise you is suspense, murder, comedy, emotional scenes and most importantly a message! TRUST

237Movies: A Man For The Weekend – Trailer

Watch Trailer for A Man For The Weekend

A Man For the weekend

After watching this trailer you sure wouldn’t miss the movie premier! A Man For The Weekend tells us the story of Candace Ayuk (Candy), a young business executive. Driven by her career, she has no time for the pleasures of life, much to the chagrin of her mother who wants to see her settle down. This drives a wedge between the two as Candy finds herself avoiding her mother’s calls for obvious reasons. Fate however plays a prank on her as she finds herself trapped by a promise to her mother, and must pay her a visit over the weekend with her “boyfriend”. A character obviously non-existent in her life. This starts the quest for a man for the weekend, coming to an end when she agrees on a business deal with Bryan Mbah, an intern with her firm, who unknown to her, is a secret admirer.

This is how, Candy and Bryan head off for a weekend at her mother’s were they are joined by her senior sister Christelle who is their mother’s favourite. She is the yardstick by which Candy is always measured, and her husband Richard. We are taken through a roller-coaster weekend wherein age old sibling rivalries emerge, family secrets are revealed. Bryan then gets a better picture of why Candy is the way she is, deepening his admiration for her. The weekend however takes a turn for the worst when Candy’s story turns on its head and her man for the weekend is revealed for who he really is a hired hand. Tempers flare, the family splits in discord with each person going their way, attempting to resume their lives as they were before. Christelle’s marriage is already fragile before the weekend get-away is crumbling.

Candy, hitherto driven and career-minded, finds her thoughts drifting towards Bryan. Their mom now conscious of how unfair she has been to Candy seeks out a means to make amends. In a nutshell, A Man For The Weekend is a romantic comedy that bares everyday family issues. It puts a comic spin to events while accentuating the overriding message that it is ok to be you, stay true, be patient and let life happen. This movie was shot on location in Limbe and Bonanjo in Douala. Produced by Syndy Emade and Directed by the multiple awards winning Director, ACHILLE BRICE.

Movie Premiere: Breach of Trust set to screen in Cameroon

Breach of Trust set to hit Cinemas in Cameroon!

Breach of trust

 

After creating major buzz in the UK, Breach of Trust a movie which tackles incest and abuse is set to hit the big screen in Cameroon. The movie which features actors from the UK, Cameroon and Nigeria, first hit the big screen in June 2017 at a star studded premiere at the Imax Odeon Cinema, Birmingham. Now it’s time for this revolutionary movie to make its debut in Cameroon come October 21st 2017 at the Canal Olympia Cinema Bessengue, Douala.
Incest and sexual assault by family members who we trust is a common but poorly addressed issue in our society. This is often due to societal pressures, fear, guilt, not knowing who to talk to, where to get support, the need to protect abusers reputation and even the fear that no one will believe you.  It is with this in mind and drawing from a true life story that Roseline Fonkwa –Moundjongui, a UK based Cameroonian producer developed the movie concept.
