Yep..a very familiar scene to us African...
Man...African men are so elegant!
African Paradis!!!... Somebody had to one day come up with such a fierce theme for a movie in which African People are the positive role models of success that White People aspire to be .
I can't wait to see this movie, it took to the director Sylvestre Amoussou from Benin, (himself an accomplised actor) ten years to get this project done.
At first, Western investors didn't believe in the project and thought that it was too eutopique to be able 2 sell.
But our director never gave up, while playing in different cinematic projects , he kept pushing for this project and like it's commonly said the rest is now history....
The movie is about French people, and among them a french couple who tired of the poverty in their continent decide to immigrate to a now prosperous Africa. While doing so, they face the same challenges that African illegal immigrants had to face in their lives . Of course it's a bit contrervosial in France because the movie touches upon a society theme that" bothers"(qui derange)....
Africa Paradis has also been selected to be presented at the FESPACO this year...(I will devote an entire post to that Festival a bit later ..)
The cast seems amazing with such good actors as Mariam Kaba (that I loveee bcp de classe cette femme) the gorgeous Eric EBOUANEY,and many others..
