Movie Review : Expression

Expression is a Cameroonian movie written by Tessy Esseme and produced by Tessy Esseme and Alenne Menget. It was directed by Musing Derrick

I was so excited when I found out Bolloré was building a cinema in Douala, Cameroon. When it was completed I rushed immediately to share the good news with you guys on here but I bet very few of you paid attention to it. I even got more excited when I was told a Cameroonian movie was to be premiered at Canal Olympia (not only because it was Cameroonian but because it was the first) and I told myself I must attend this premiere! The premiere was a black carpet affair attended by the creme de la creme and movie lovers nationwide including the legendary Sallé John. Now let’s talk about Expression.

Out of the four Cameroonian movies I happened to have watched Expression is my favorite. I personally like it because it is far from the ordinary. It is DIFFERENT! The story has a lot of twist and turns and you couldn’t tell what to expect when!

It was shot in the beautiful city of Buea.

This ring is headed by Jack (Alenne Menget) and he grooms Amanda for years to be his prodigy. Amanda is tormented by the fact that she doesn’t know her parents and has no identity. She decides to steal a huge some of money from Jack and go in search of her mother.

She starts following clues until she finds this lady called Jasmine whom she thinks is her mother. She then pays Tessy (Nsang Dilong) to act as an under cover agent and find out everything about Jasmine. While on her assignment, scrupulous and ambitious Tessy finds out Jasmine (Solange Yijika)  is a gold mine and decides to scheme her way through and pose as Amanda. Jasmine  thinking Tessy is her daughter starts to shower her with love and gifts. While having to deal with Tessy’s betrayal, Amanda also has Jack on her tail.

All in all it was a fun night; I got to sit in a cinema hall and watch a cameroonian movie for the first time and the experience was out of the world. Thumbs up to the entire team. We hope to have many more experiences like that in the future.
