Wednesday, June 13, 2018 - 14:54

“’n Goeie voorbeeld van hoe ’n puik film in Suid-Afrika vervaardig kan word! Dit is ’n aangrypende verhaal oor liefde, opoffering en wat jy sal doen om te oorleef, en sal jou op die punt van jou stoel hou – in afwagting op wat volgende gaan gebeur!”City Press se Andrea Johannes oor die plaaslike riller, NOMMER 37, wat vroeër in die maand aan Suid-Afrikaanse gehore vrygestel is en reeds ook opslae oorsee gemaak het.

Hierdie Hitchcock-styl rolprent, deur draaiboekskrywer en regisseur, Nosipho Dumisa, is baie positief ontvang deur plaaslike gehore, mediaplatforms en rolprentkenners en komplimente stroom reeds, sedert die amptelike vrystelling, onophoudelik uit verskeie oorde in. Channel 24 se Leandra Engelbrecht beskryf die fliek as ’n “opwindende avontuur met verskeie kinkels, verrassings en spanningsvolle oomblikke, en dit word bevestig deur Bruinou.com se Ryan Swano, wat sê: “Dit is rêrag ’n kwaai film. Dit maak nie saak hoeveel moontlike eind-scenarios jy probeer voorspel nie, want dit is propvol verrassende elemente en verwikkelinge.”

Hierdie Kaapstadse produksie, wat aan die wêreld bekendgestel is tydens die internasionale SXSW-rolprentfees in Texas, is ook gekies is om die land verder te gaan verteenwoordig by die agtiende jaarlikse Internasionale Neuchâtel Fantastic-Rolprentfees (NIFFF) in Switserland, vanaf 6 tot 14 Julie 2018. Daar is ook onlangs aangekondig dat Dark Star Pictures eksklusiewe regte bekom het om die fliek in Noord-Amerika te versprei. Die Noord-Amerikaanse vertonings sal in New York en Los Angeles begin, waarna dit ook vroegwinter op ’n DVD-op-aanvraag-basis vrygestel sal word. Reel Suspects het ook verspreidingsregte vir die rolprent in China, Duitsland, Oostenryk, Switserland en Japan bekom.

NOMMER 37 is gebaseer op die SAFTA-bekroonde kortfilm met dieselfde naam, waarvan Nosipho Dumisa en Travis Taute die regisseurs was. Die fliek speel af in ’n arm en gevaarlike Kaapse buurt. Dit vertel die verhaal van Randal Hendricks wat onlangs deur ’n ongeluk gestrem gelaat en nou rolstoel- woonstelgebonde is. Hy is kniediep in die skuld by ’n sosiopatiese geldskieter met die naam Emmie (Danny Ross), wat sy pond vleis eis. Wanneer sy toegewyde meisie, Pam (Monique Rockman), vir hom ’n verkyker present gee kan hy sy bure dophou en sien hy op ’n dag hoe ’n gevaarlike bendeleier, Lawyer (David Manuel), ’n moord pleeg en besluit om hom af te pers vir geld. Met verraad en gierigheid om elke hoek en draai, neem die gebeure wat volg hulle op ’n lewensgevaarlike reis, soos wat die wêreld rondom hom verder en verder in chaos gedompel word.

Sandi Schultz, Deon Lotz, Elton Landrew, Ephraim Gordon en Amrain Ismail-Essop is ook in die fliek te sien. Dit is vervaardig deur Bradley Joshua en Benjamin Overmeyer, van Gambit Films, saam met XYZ Films.

NOMMER 37 is ’n spanningsbelaaide grootskerm-ervaring, wat kykers op die punte van hulle stoele sal hou tot en met die laaste toneel en nie iets wat misgeloop moet word nie. “Jy swem deur die drek van misdaad, maar jy verstaan ook waar die mense vandaan kom en waarom hulle doen wat hulle doen,” meen fliekkenner, Leon van Nierop.

Die fliek is vervaardig deur Gambit Films in samewerking met kykNET Films, M-Net, XYZ Films en Die Departement van Handel en Nywerheid (DTI). Dit word plaaslik deur Filmfinity (Edms) Bpk versprei en is tans by bioskope te sien! NOMMER 37 bekleë tans die nommer nege posisie op die Top 10-rolprentloket.

Local Blockbuster, Nommer 37, Well Received By Sa Critics

A good example of how great movies can be made right here in South Africa! It is a captivating tale of love, sacrifice and doing everything in your power to survive and will have you at the very edge of your seat with anticipation of the next move!,” says City Press’s Andrea Johannes about local crime thriller, NOMMER 37, which was released in cinemas earlier this month.

This Hitchcockian style film, by scriptwriter and first-time director, Nosipho Dumisa, was very well received by local audiences, media and film critics and compliments have been streaming in, non-stop, from various sources. Channel 24’s Leandra Engelbrecht describes it as a “thrilling ride that has twists, turns and a lot of suspense”, which is confirmed by Bruinou.com’s Ryan Swano, who says: “It is rêrag ’n kwaai film. No matter how many outcomes you try to predict, the twists become more and more surprising.”

This production, which had its world premiere at the International SXSW Film Festival in Texas, was selected to represent the country at the 18th annual Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) in Switzerland from 6 to 14 July 2018. It was also recently announced that Dark Star Pictures gained exclusive North American distribution rights. The North American screening of the full-length feature will kick off in New York and L.A., followed by an early winter video-on-demand release. Reel Suspects has also managed to clinch distribution deals for the film in China, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Japan.

NOMMER 37 is based on the SAFTA-award-winning short film of the same name, which was co-directed by Nosipho Dumisa and Travis Taute. Set in a dangerous and poverty-stricken neighbourhood of Cape Town, it tells the story of Randal Hendricks, a recent paraplegic, who is given a gift of binoculars by his devoted girlfriend, Pam (Monique Rockman). But he is in financial debt to Emmie (Danny Ross), a sadistic loan shark, and when he witnesses a powerful criminal, named Lawyer (David Manuel), commit murder while observing his neighbours through his binoculars, he initiates a blackmail scheme in an attempt to settle his debt. With deception and greed around every corner, what follows is a thrilling ride that puts both their lives in mortal danger… as the world around Randal deteriorates further and further into chaos.

The film also stars Sandi Schultz, Deon Lotz, Elton Landrew, Ephraim Gordon and Amrain Ismail-Essop. It was produced by Bradley Joshua and Benjamin Overmeyer of South African production outfit Gambit Films with XYZ Films.

NOMMER 37 is a thrilling big-screen cinematic experience that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats until the credits start rolling and a must-see for everyone. “You are confronted with a lot of crime scenes and scenarios, but you also understand where the characters are coming from and why they are doing what they’re doing,” Leon van Nierop explains.

The film was produced by Gambit Films in association with kykNET Films, M-Net, XYZ Films and the DTI, and is distributed by Filmfinity (Pty) Ltd. locally. It is currently showing at various cinemas across the country and holds the number nine spot on the local circuit.
