Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen’s ATM (Authentic Tentative Marriage) has scored another major achievement with its official selection at the Denton Black Film Festival which is set to hold in January 2017.
According to a statement sent to DAYLIGHT.NG, the movie which was also screened at the Capital City Festival at Houston Texas in August 2016, had more than 8 weeks impressive run in Nigerian cinemas after its official release on Friday May 13, 2016. A run which saw the comedy flick winning the Best Comedy Film at the 2016 Abuja International Film Festival and 2 nominations from the Best Of Nollywood awards, coming up later this year at Umuahia in Abia State.
Also, within these periods, ATM was a darling of so many major foreign media as some of the leading media houses like CNN, BenTV, BBC and others made a comprehensive review of the hilarious comedy movie.
ATM, is a romantic comedy which stirred Robinson, (Alex Ekubor) a young jobless man in his late 20s who met a white lady, Emilia ( Oyinbo Princess) via online dating and started extorting money from her in pretense that he was going to marry her. Meanwhile, he has a Nigerian girlfriend, Caroline, (Yvonne Jegede) who has been very supportive and taking care of him and his uncle Gbenga (Francis Odega).
Francis fell for his brother’s caprices when he told him about his plan to make the ‘Oyinbo’ lady her ATM, by marrying her and divorce her after six months in other to inherit her wealth and marry his Naija girlfriend, Caroline.
But when Emilia arrived Nigeria, Robinson got the shock of his life…
According to Lancelot “ATM has surpassed all expectations of a typical Nollywood movie with a good story line, theme and characters.
In the movie, Claire Edun also known as Oyinbo Princess, clearly and undoubtedly excelled in her first movie appearance in Nigeria.” daylight.ng
