About the Film
Workaholic Jaci will go to any lengths to protect the boutique advertising agency she works for from being bought and dismantled by a ruthless businessman known as ‘The Jackal’. Hope exists in the form a huge contract for a prestigious wine farming family. But winning this contract won’t be simple. Jaci needs to convince the farm owner that she lives up to his company’s ideals of family values and commitment by proving that she is in a loving, long term relationship. Desperate to appear to be living the balanced life she has long discarded, Jaci hires a drop dead gorgeous man she finds standing outside the modelling agency on the floor below her offices to be her fake fiancé for the day. At the pitch meeting the facade seems to have worked until the client insists her and her fake fiancé come away for the weekend to experience the wine farm before she pitches for the contract. Things start to get very complicated, very quickly for poor Jaci, especially since the man she has hired to be her stand in fiancé, is the very ‘Jackal’ himself who is trying to sink her company.
I am not on to watch Afrikaans movis but this has changd my mind. REALLY enjoyed the story and had a lot of laughs.
I real feel good movie
A must see!
If this movie is an indication of the future of Afrikaans and South African films - I am a fan! Great laughs, a romantic comedy with an South African flavor - beautifully shot and a great soundtrack.
If you live overseas and miss home, this is the perfect movie to enjoy!
This was a great movie by any standards…I laughed a lot. I liked to see Braamfontein and the Winelads being featured and to see the lead actress also being one of the producer…that is a lot on one plate for one person. I hope all the sponsors received the upside associated with the success of this movie. Best acting by the lead girl herself…I always hope for less stereotypes in SA movies however…this movie is laced with them, its comedy at its South African best that way.
