Thousands of movies are being shot and produced each year in Africa, helping or messing the already saturated movie industry—depending on how you decide to view things.
Far in the West, great movies that meet certain standards are also being made—making millions in the cinemas.
For a movie shot in Africa to make that jump and meet the strict scrutiny and standard requirements in the West and be granted UK Cinema release approval, that movie must stand tall among the thousands being churned out each year.
This is exactly what ‘Flower Girl’ has done—making it to UK Cinemas so that you can walk into a posh cinema like VUE in Stratford Westfield with your friends, sit and enjoy an African movie on the big screen too.
From 4th October, 2013 (2 days from today), ‘Flower Girl’ which is dubbed the Best African Movie of 2013—so far, will be showing at Odeon Greenwich, Odeon Surrey Quays, Odeon Streatham, VUE Stratford, Cineworld Enfield (TBC) and Cineworld Wood Green (TBC)…
Apart from the fact that the romantic comedy is directed by Michelle Bello with the help of award winning filmmaker Mahmood Ali-Balogun (Tango with Me) which should tell you about its quality, it features outstanding actors like Chris Attoh, Damilola Adegbite and Chuks Chukwujekwu who will never compromise on standard.
In Flower Girl ‘Kemi (DAMILOLA ADEGBITE) is dying to get married. Umar (CHRIS ATTOH) is dying to get ahead in his career.
When their relationship hits troubled waters, Kemi seeks the help of movie superstar Tunde (CHUKS CHUKWUJEKWU) and they hatch a plan to get Kemi what she wants – but the plan doesn’t quite work out as they anticipate and soon they realise why people say love is a funny thing’.
