A Absolute Must

Having read hundreds of reviews on this site and never having left one, I finally have a reason to. Purely to see if a 10/10 score can be reached. Haven't actually seen the film but I will.Having read hundreds of reviews on this site and never having left one, I finally have a reason to. Purely to see if a 10/10 score can be reached.

An all Time Classic

Drawn into the Story Saving Mbango, the movie leaves you assimilated into the culture of a people yet creates a longing to be free. The ignorance about certain diseases and its impact on the community is bewildering.

Family drama in West Africa

This is an unusual film, it was shot locally with local people who, I dare say, had no acting experience. Yet it is interesting. I was unaware of where it was made when I began watching it, and it began to drive me mad trying to guess where.The actors were speaking in pidgin English, I could understand a lot of it, and it is West African pidgin, as I learned in Nigeria. But I did not recognise the local language and there were aspects of the surroundings which made me conclude quite quickly that it wasn't Nigeria. I thought it might be Ghana (Nigeria's northern Neighbour) but it turns out to be Cameroon, to the south of Nigeria.

Simply Amazing

Saving Mbango is a typical Cameroonian story which relates to every community which exists.Story - The journey of John and Mbango's love story is simply beautiful, the mixed emotions one experiences when watching keeps one routing for this love like it were ours to work out, i cannot imagine turning my head away when watching its an enjoyable piece.Performance-The lead role John played by Godisma Fungwa perfomance is one in which one cannot emuliate, he is a unique lad with potential.The overrall perfomance of the story from John to mbango and the supporting cast was pleasant, finely done and fun.Overall- Higly recomended family watch.Pontential- No bragging but this movie has an OSCAR pontential.
