Ghana: Movie Review - 'Somewhere in Africa'

If you think you have seen the best of Majid Michel, Martha Ankomah, Eddie Nartey, Roselyn Ngissah , Kofi Adjorlolo and the veteran Actor David Dontoh yet, then you must be kidding yourself.

A movie "Somewhere In Africa" tipped to take Africa by storm and has by all standards the potential to win an international film festival award will soon be hitting our screens.

Considering what is happening in African countries such as Libya, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe and others, one can only say the timing of "Somewhere In Africa" is superb.

The relevance of the movie to the current state of affairs in Africa coupled with the fact that it features some of the best talents in Africa should tell you that you are about to see a blockbuster coming out of Ghana.

The storyline and acting is so much on point that after seeing it, I said to myself "What has Frank Rajah Arase been waiting for if he had this up his sleeves".

"Somewhere In Africa" is written and directed by Frank Rajah Arase with Kwame Boadu as Executive Producer, Louis Aquahman & Martha Ankomah as Associate Producers, Screenplay By Pascal Amanfful and Adams Umar as Director of Photography.

Synopsis: In a town where blood thirsty militant subject making life simply unbearable, it is difficult to know when you will wake up to a brilliant morning sunshine which promises a day of solemnity.

In the wake of the seeming normalcy of a capricious life, a new regime is established in Kimbala town: a superlative regime of Yusuf Mombasa.

Thirstier and fiercer than his predecessors, the people of Kimbala are dumb by his ruthlessness.

The strongest of men are hit down to noting more than murmur. The influential are coiled in their shells in total stillness and the civilians hide behind hypocritical facet of patriotism. Who will dare stop Mombasa?
