BETWEEN, a movie was written and directed by Daniel Ademinokan and starred his wife, a veteran actress, Stella Damasus, premiered in London on Friday 12th April 2019 at the Odeon Greenwich.
The movie was well crafted and the delivery was excellent.
The story is about a lady Chelsea played by Stella Damasus who has had a few failed marriages and has lost hope in finding love. The irony of it is that she is a marriage counselor. Funny right?
She decided to live her relationship life like a man. She believes that she can predict how a man perceives love or should I say dating.
Chelsea enjoyed her single life and has a habit of picking up men at bars just to fulfil her sexual desire but she missed the memo that says a man is wired differently when it comes to random sex.
In one of her regular night out, she picked up a man; lets call him Cowboy X. (You will find out why when you watch the movie)
After spending a couple of nights with Cowboy X, the unthinkable happened. Cowboy X said and did the right things that Chelsea, who we will call Agent Q (watch the movie to find out why) fell in love. But is Cowboy X who he made out to be? Has Agent Q finally found true love to live happily ever after?
I can tell you that you will enjoy this movie very much.
Stella Damasus is an actor and more. She interpreted the role perfectly and delivered on it. All the expressions were in the right places, not exaggerated and the variations in the tone of her voice in her dialogues was on point. We shouldn’t expect less from a veteran actor the she is. But I must say this woman can cry for Africa kilode?
After leaving the acting scene for so long, she reminded us of what we have missed. She carried the character from the opening of the first scene till the end. I must say this is an Oscar worthy acting.
All the other characters in the movie were well cast. From the inquisitive assistant that believes she must not only manage her bosses official duties but also her private life, (she is just an Amebo) to Cowboy X, the supporting lead actor.
One character actually stood out in the movie. It was the office nerd, that I believe has a crush on his boss, Chelsea, but dare not say it. His is a minor role but he shined with it.
The story, which is well written and directed by Daniel, is layered with so much twists. Whenever I thought the movie has ended, there will be a twist and then another journey. I will crown Daniel, the master twister.
Daniel did an amazing job in directing this movie. The only question I have for him is how did he direct those love scene of Chelsea without him killing somebody (Cowboy X)?
The transition from every scene was genius. The sound is at the right level, picture perfect I couldn’t just find any fault in the movie. But in the quest of fault finding did I mention that the film is 2hrs 20mins long with a cast of 95% white and 5% black.
I can say it is 2hrs 20mins worth spending in the cinema.
I will give this movie a 5 Star.
The movie will be released in the cinemas in Nigeria on the 3rd of May 2019 make sure you go and watch it.
