The release of Ghanaian Director, Shirley Frimpong-Manso‘s movies always inspires major excitement amongst African movie lovers. Over the years, Shirley via Sparrow Productions has disguised herself among others as her movies consistently rule box office and have won several awards.
‘The Perfect Picture‘, ‘A Sting In A Tale‘ are two of her most popular movies while her most recent movie prior to this new release was 2009′s ‘Checkmate‘ which starred Nadia Buari.
The latest movie from Sparrow Productions, is ’6 Hours to Christmas’, a comedic thriller starring Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite. Chris and Damilola are castmates on MNet’s Tinsel and this is their first movie collaboration.
It looks like it’s going to be a typical 24th December day for suave creative director, Reggie (Chris Attoh) and perhaps a slightly more memorable one as his girlfriend promises him dinner and fireworks before the stroke of midnight.
Things however take an exciting turn for him when his office colleague and the girl (Damilola Adegbite) he’s lusted after for a long time gives him a Christmas present he finds impossible to refuse.
As Reggie’s mind goes into overdrive, events unfold into very hilarious and yet bizarre circumstances and it seems a day that started with the promise of Christmas may just end in heartbreak and a gun to Reggie’s head.
The movie is set to premiere at the National Theatre in Accra on the 29th of October 2010. We are so proud of Shirley, she had a baby recently and she is still on top of her game. The presentation, packaging and marketing of her movies is always top-notch and is an area other movie makers can learn from. Check out movie stills and the trailer below.
