Launched on Saturday, April 2, 2011 at the Alliance Franco-Camerounaise in Buea, Cameroon, The Wedding Corpse Smiles is a film directed by Nji Derick and produced by Beatrice T. Suh which comes to enrich the Cameroon movie landscape. Attended by more than three hundred guests and movie lovers, Mathew Takwi reviews the Film, and his review is presented in its entirety for readers of The Entrepreneur NewsOnline.
''The Wedding Corpse Smiles demonstrates a typical African society caught in its own throes of traditional and cultural values and practices which must not only be kept but must also be respected and withheld to the letter. A synoptic presentation of the major issues raised, the manner by which they have been raised and the validity of their being raised at all in the third millennium, will quickly wet our appetite to grab copies of this film.....It is important at this juncture for one to find out what the lessons are that the viewers get from watching The Wedding Corpse Smiles. How is tradition conflicting with modernization? Are basic universal human rights being respected in this third millennium? Is the African society adamant to positive change? What is the fate of the African girl child in society? These and more are the burning issues you should find answers for, by watching the film keenly.'''
