POTATO POTAHTO
Dir. Shirley Frimpong Manso
Nigeria, Ghana. 2017. 70 mins. English.

A divorced couple who decide to share equal space in their ex-matrimonial home soon realise that this ingenious idea is easier said than done. Bent on flexing their egos and scoring points, Tony (OC Ukeje) and Lulu (Joselyn Dumas) devise various hilarious tactics that soon inflame jealous emotions and turn an already complicated situation into a roller coaster ride. Prolific Ghanaian director, Shirley Frimpong Manso, reunites Ukeje and Dumas again, following their roles in her 2014 film Love Or Something Like It, and the duo reproduces their onscreen chemistry in this colourful comedy of manners. A strong supporting cast includes Joke Silva, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Chris Attoh, Lala Akindoju, Nikki Samonas, Adjetey Anang and Victoria Micheals.
