You Idiot!

Column : Cinema/tv
Year of production : 2010
Format : Short

Most of us know that our actions will come back and bite us one day. But we do not know when and how hard.
Timo meets Alexia at the Elig-Dzoa market and fall head over heels in love. That Alexia's family loves him might be linked to the fact that no one knows what he is doing for a living; that he is in fact collecting taxes from market sellers. A profession that is frowned upon by most. When, on the day of his wedding he meets his future mother-in-law, things will no longer be quite the same.

Professionals and amateurs act in this first-time short that reminds us that as long as there is love and respect, the rest is likely to take care of itself. And when there is not, we are on our own. This first-time film by a young filmmaker has screened at multiple cinemas across Cameroon.
