Shot in full HD and presenting stunning visuals by top Cinematographer Rufaro Kaseke, the Joe Njagu film is set between Harare and Johannesburg: A tale of twin brothers whose worlds have gone drastically wrong. With one staying in South Africa and the other in Zimbabwe, fate throws at them financial situations that force them to drop the principles and integrity and pick up survival tactics. As they reunite, after eight years, they get entangled in the unfamiliar worlds of Zimbabwe's manipulative corporate darkness and South African mafioso.
Presenting a tightly woven storyline, the star studded film boasts of bankable names with pre-existing fan base: Munyaradzi Chidzonga (Big Brother Africa (BBA), 2010); Presley Chweneyegae (TSOTSI), Sheila Kwamboka (Big Brother Africa (BBA) 2010 and, also a wide range of Zimbabwean celebrated entertainers.
The Gentleman is a distinct fast paced-nail biting feature, with a "film" look, brought to life by powerful actors, each scene moving the story forward, pushing you towards the edge of the seat as adrenaline pumps every fraction of a second...frame by frame!
The Gentleman premiers in Harare, Zimbabwe's Celebration Center 1 October, 2011 before touring other international cities: Melbourne, Kular Lampur, Blantyre, Johannesburg, Nairobi amongst other cities.
