Title: The Young Smoker

Genre: Short film

Starring: Adedoyin Jaiyesimi, Kunle Fawole and Adeleye Jaiyesimi

Director: Tope Oshin Ogun

Year: 2011

The Young Smokermatches the retro theme of the story excellently with quality photography but still falls into the same ditch retro-themed films fall. The ‘Unity is Power’ picture in front of the house shows an attempt to pay attention to detail, but this attempt is foiled by three objects. A Toyota Camry, DSTV dish and an unchanged scenery across the road. Dapo (due to his mildly greying hair) is in his mid-thirties, and arguably 20 years ago neither Camry (appears after the ‘omolanke’ passes) nor DSTV (hanging behind the ‘cigarette’ shop) existed. Wait. Young Dapo’s smoke was fake. Right?
