237Review: Elian Achu Reviews #SavingMbangoTheMovie

Saving Mbango revolves around the titular character (Godisz Fungwa), an ambitious young man caught up in a dysfunctional family

Directed By: Nkanya Nkwai
Producer: Stephanie E. Tum
Main Cast: Godisz Fungwa, Onyama Laura, MacDonald Libota, Stephanie Tum, Malvis Ann Mohvu, Einstein Young Jr, Ralph Obi Tambe, Ngonga Elizabeth and Otia Vitalis.
Release Date: November 29th, 2019
Genre: Drama/Romance

Saving Mbango revolves around the titular character (Godisz Fungwa), an ambitious young man caught up in a dysfunctional family who constantly get in the way of his dreams and ambitions. The only snag is that he falls in love with a village girl Mbango (Onyama Laura) who almost everyone considers an outcast. John quickly realises his problems are secondary to Mbango’s and his overbearing family stands in the way of this love.  John is therefore torn between acceptance by his family and his almost ‘impossible’ love for Mbango.

There has been a lot of hype about Saving Mbango both pre and post production and  especially during the promo for the grand premiere of the movie in Douala which was proudly sponsored by Orange Cameroon and now I see why. The movie was indeed a mighty fine one. What particularly endeared me was the simple and basic plot which was easy to follow and not overly complicated.

Shot in Mondoni village, the storytelling was decent and appealing and was brought to life by some really good acting especially that of Godisz and Laura. Their character was so relatable that after a while, you start seeing them as John and Mbango rather than Godisz and Laura. Laura’s innocence and pure nature were charming and really cute and that swayed the audience to her side. I was also impressed with the characters of Stephanie Tum and Solange Ojong who went completely 360° anti-clockwise from their usual selves to fit into these roles perfectly.

Other than the acting I must specifically note that the technical aspects of the movie making were top notch. The colouring was marvellous and the camera work was superb. I especially liked the way they transited between scenes. Another commendable aspect was the soundtrack – they used really appropriate cameroonian rhythms which aided with the overall feel of the scenes.

The plot twist at the end was really a move to be commended. I’m really proud of this movie because of its simplicity and cultural fitting for local and international audiences and I do recommend it to everyone especially the Cameroonian film doubters. Saving Mbango is scheduled to stream in Canal Olympia cinemas all over Central Africa starting with those in Yaoundé and Douala.
