“6 Hours To Christmas” Came To London Last Friday, My Sincere Thoughts!

Photos were posted on 29 Nov 2010 at 9:40pm

I’m a BIG time movie buff and will avidly watch a variety of movies including movies from overseas. West African movies have always glued me to my couch clutching my sides with laughter or shaking my head in disdain.

One thing I can say is that I’m sincerely not biased when it comes to reviewing movies and African movies are surely no exception. I guess it was different this time around as I’ve not watched an African Movie on a large screen so this did add some good points towards the movie, I feel it gives the movie some credibility.

I had to commend the scriptwriter/director of the movie “Shirley Frimpong Manso” and the rest of her production team. After all they made the effort to bring ‘6 Hours to Christmas’ over here to London on the big screen.

When I first heard it was coming to town I was more that excited as I was pretty much prepared to wait for the DVD to come out.

It was fantastic that the two main characters of the movie “ Chris Attoh & Damilola Adegbite” made it down for the film’s premiere where they posed for red carpet pictures and interviews.

Shirley Frimpong Manson was especially hospitable and fabulous to meet and gave us a warm welcome and a short introduction in the theatre before the movie started.

The theatre was absolutely packed out with enthusiastic cinema goers, you have to know it was worth the trip as people were willing to pay £10.00 a ticket and came out in the freezing cold temperatures for the premiere.

I think Shirley Frimpong Manso’s success with her previous movies were enough to bring people out even in this cold weather for the premiere of her latest.

I’ve watched all of Shirley’s Movies and I’ve watched enough west African movies to know she does more than a compelling and creative job.

The movie came with an awesome story line, with a surprise twists at the end and humour all the way through.

You could surely tell that huge sums of money have not been thrown into the movie but I was too distracted by the jokes and new faces to really care. As always with African movies a lot of the scenes were dragged on longer than was really necessary (no surprised there though).

My only disappointment was with the red carpet, I was thinking the stars would hit that red carpet in amazing glamour and style! I guess that is what we’re used to with the western movie industry.

Then again it is November and I “myself” was covered from top to the  toe to shield out the minus degree temperature. As you can see from the photos below, Chris Attoh did not disappoint in this department and looked pretty sharp complete with the trade mark million dollar smile.

The Dvd is due out soon….

    The light skin lady is the Lead Actress Damilola Adegbite believe it not. I did not recognize her at all! Her hair is diff in the movie, very diff is suits her better the short style she had.

    much preferred her hair in the movie with the block fringe and black suited her face and skin tone much better she is a good actress though and i can definitely see her going mainstream.
