The movie ‘Tango with me‘ brought to you by Brickwall communications is not just a regular nollywood movie. Unlike others, it is absolutely realistic and able to carry its audience along right from the insighting incidence to the climax. The intention of the movie maker and the satisfaction of the audience are on the same track at the end of the movie.
The movie director makes use of imaginative filming language in his expression of ideas. The camera tricks, Lighting are wonderful and used appropriately.
The concept of the costume is the best I have ever seen in a nollywood movie. In as much as the movie is a standard contemporary work of art, the use of cultural and local fabrics amongst the characters is visible. I’m yet to comprehend Jibike’s mode of dressing in relation to her role as the MD/CEO of a major company in Lagos. Her make-up is awful. She looks like a total drag queen in most of her scenes.
There is no use of unnecessary sound effects… The few songs used in various parts just flows with the mood and makes it as emotional as possible. The use of original figures is a huge plus. An example is NTA’s Cyril Stober acting as a newscaster in the movie. It’s amazing.
The dialogue is great, good use and command of language. The characters were able to interprete their roles perfectly. The storyline is unique and I call it ‘The movie with a difference’
