A Sting In A Tale, the latest movie from Sparrow Productions premiers next weekend at Accra International Conference Centre in Ghana. It features Adjetey Anang, Lydia Forson, Majid Michel among others.
A twisted tale of two unemployed graduates who embark on a journey to make it in a world where you need more than what you have to get what you want. Kuuku is overwhelmed with the urgency to succeed and frantically searches for a reward to his several years of school.
Frustrated and constantly reminded of his failure by the presence of his girlfriend, (Frema); Kuuku will do anything to make the odds work in his favor. Nii Aryee, Kuuku’s abstemious looking friend is more positive about the future until the rejection letters begin to mount and his landlord comes to town.
Driven by the fear of poverty, these two friends go in search of a destiny that takes them to the most obscure places. In a tale where the unexpected is always lurking in the shadows, from the natural to the supernatural, among all ploys, grief and struggles, nothing prepares you for the sting, in a bizarre ending.

Really? GHC 30 for a movie? Really? Are we trying to make movie-going an elitist activity or what? That’s a great shame. $25 to go see a movie – wow!
30 GH Cedis is actually equivalent to about $20.71 as of today but that’s besides the point.
The 30 GH Cedis is for the grand premiere only. I am sure the ticket rates would crash to 10 GH Cedis when the movie is screened in the cinemas.
I fervently hope it does reduce to ghc10
I THINK SPARROW PRODUCTION HAS CHANGE GHANA MOVIE INDUSTRIES
I love Shirley….She’s great…..She’s given ghana movies a face-lift…..I have all her movies so far…..and waiting for this new one……can’t wait!!!
I hope this one has less nudity!! I hope i would feel comfortable watching it with a friend.
I watched the new movie last night. Full gist soon! 🙂
OOOOH MY GOD. I SAW THE MOVIE TONIGHT. I THINK ITS THE BEST YET FROM SPARROW. THE MOVIE IS SOOO FUNNY AND TWISTED> I LOVED IT. SPARROW HAS SET ANOTHER BAR.
Shirley Frimpong Manso i dont even know what to say all i say is when will you give me a role in your movies.
I saw the movie last night and i’ll say its a great movie, i actually saw a Ghanaian movie to the end and was entertained. Shirley you are Good but i will rate this one over Perfect Picture.
-Story line was good
-Picture was great
-Acting was generally wonderful(for the first time Majid impressed me)
-Sound was good (but foot steps did not account for the distance)
Suspense need more work but hey even some Hollywood movies are not void of suspense glitches
MY FAVOURITE SCENE was where the artist drew Micheal Essien’s Picture claiming to be listening to all the descriptions.
Your comment made me to watch the movie over again (I bought the VCD earlier this week). The scene about Michael Essien made me chock with laughter. 😀
I watched a pirated copy of this movie and i feel so guilty. I’ll buy the original no matter the price. This is the best west african movie ever. No goofs, scenario or script errors as you see in every nollywood movie. This one is clean. Reminds me of slumdog millionaire. Thumbs up to the director.
i know the movie will be of good quality but why is shirley’s movies only premiered in accra one kumasi premiere wont be that bad.
The settings were exquisite. I think Shirley has done a great job. Cheers
please i will be very glad if you can get me the contact of sherly frimpong mansoi really have movie for her
