Remember we brought you the trailer for The Housewife, well, NdaniTV (Frostbite) made it available online on the 16th of February, 2018. The short film, powered by Guaranty Trust Bank, follows a working executive (Blossom Chukwujekwu) on a visit to his doctor’s (Kachi Nnochiri).
He was worried about his health, believing his family to be the cause of untold stress. A round of questions however, centered around his marriage (to Kiki Omeili as a dedicated housewife) and other extra marital liaisons, lead to a light-bulb moment for him. Its a gradual reawakening as the scales fall from his eyes and he makes a course for restitution.
The background music (supervised by IBK Spaceshipboi) at every point was dope and the picture quality wasn’t in question. The casting was stellar and the actors, especially Blossom (Okafor’s Law) and Kachi (Fifty), gave a performance that’d bind anyone’s attention. The plot was on course the entire time, the costumes impressive, and the salient issues highlighted between a typical office man and his stay-at-home wife remains a clarion call to deterring husbands.
Mention must be made of the brilliant use of gestures to substitute the dialogue in one or two scenes. Written, directed and produced by Jay Franklyn Jituboh (Dinner), The Housewife is a 14-minute must watch that ends on a comfortable note, not the tragedy we witnessed in Ifeoma Chukwuogo’s highly moving Bariga Sugar.
Shot by Muhammad Atta Ahmed and rated 9/10, the cast also includes Ekaete Enobong, Abegunde Christiana, Queen Rennee, Chimamanda Enwerem, Munachi Enwerem, and Ekene Enwerem.
