It may look normal for movie enthusiasts to tear up after seeing a very emotional movie; I do too. But it becomes abnormal for a professional actress to do the same over a script!
For Bisola Ayeola, an award winning Nigerian actress, to confess to have messed up her make-up by seeing Still Falling, a movie starring Sharon Ooja and Daniel Etim Effiong, then the movie by the power couple filmmakers, Dimbo and Karachi Atiya, is indeed a good movie to see.
It is then true what Michael Cimino, an impressive American actor, once said that ‘a very simple definition of a good movie: a good movie makes you forget you’re watching a movie.’
Bono Kuku (Sharon Ooja), a strong and successful young lady, who is obviously not successful in the area of relationship or maybe never makes attempt at it, is busy crashing hookups unashamedly and licking it all up like vanilla and strawberry flavoured ice-cream.
And no matter how hard they try, no male could penetrate her world without hitting retreat with his tail tucked between his legs.
But her world and walls come crashing down like a pack of cards when a former vampire boyfriend, Lagi Gowon, flies back into her territory. With the speed her fence, facade and every brick making up her defence come down at the sight of Captain Lagi, it is obvious the boss lady isn’t impenetrable afterall!
What really happened during their university days together and what hold does a single and mere pilot could have on Bono, the dreaded bosslady and menslayer?
The movie also featured a first time actor and popular Nigerian gospel singer, Panam Percy Paul, veteran Liz Benson Ameye, Lulu Okonkwo and Laura Fidel.
Others include Eddy Madaki, Chavala Yaduma and Zeal of Styl-Plus.
Nothing but the best could have been expected from the producers of the award winning Sons of the Caliphate and Drawing Strength. One of the producers, Dimbo, CEO of Innovative Television Kontents (ITK), who has also created other world class television contents which included short films like Flip and That Awkward Moment, is indeed carving the niche for the family business in the already saturated Nollywood industry hitting right from the north.
He exclusively revealed to Nollytrailers that though a little of his private life was thrown into the film, the whole Still Falling script was inspired by God.
“There is a tiny aspect of it that is pretty much me and her (Karachi), it is pretty much a story inspired by God. When the idea came to write Still Falling, it just started dropping.
“We wanted to focus on the issue of forgiveness, which is something we don’t talk about most of the time,” he said.
Still Falling will be hitting the cinemas February 12, 2021 and there is nothing more that could serve as pre-Valentine Day’s gift for lovers than this.
And according to Aiyeola, the movie as seen by her was ‘an emotional roller coaster’.
“It made rethink my relationship with God and I didn’t know I was going to cry so much. I did and I love it,” she revealed.
