Changing Faces: Will a Born-Again Christian Commit Adultery?

That is the question no married Christian can deny, because no one can deny the temptations to have sex outside the matrimonial home. Extramarital affairs are the realities married couples cannot ignore, whether they are born again Christians or not. And the answer is in Faruk Lasaki’s romantic drama Changing Faces opening at the Silverbird Cinemas, Genesis Deluxe Cinemas and other cinemas in Nigeria, Ghana and other countries from December 16, 2011.

This born-again Christian husband did not only commit adultery with another woman outside his matrimonial home, but he returned to also have sex with their house girl whilst his wife was sleeping until she woke up in the middle of the night to catch him rocking their house girl like a dog!

Changing Faces has been highly commended as one of the new movies raising the standards in Nollywood and the movie has opened doors for Nollywood at the Cannes Film Festival in France, Cairo International Film Festival in Egypt, African Diaspora Film Festival in New York, USA, Écrans Noirs Film Festival in Yaoundé, Cameroun, Zuma Film Festival in Abuja and Eko International Film Festival in Lagos, Nigeria.

Faruk Lasaki is one of the best graduates of the New York Film Academy (NYFA), which also brought out the best in Chineze Anyaene whose IJÉ the Journey broke the local box office record in Nigeria; including Kunle Afolayan who has won multiple awards for his Araromire: Figurine, with five awards at the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) for the Best Picture, Best Actor and others and Stephanie Okereke whose movie Through the Glass lifted her higher in Nollywood as an actress and emerging filmmaker.

Changing Faces has an international cast of gifted Nigerian and British actors and actresses like Marc Baylis rated as the hottest actor in a Nigerian movie by the authoritative Nigeria Films.Com.

“Marc’s thrilling role as the young white Architecture whiz kid Dale married to a Nigerian woman showed him as a better actor than Van Vicker and Majid Michel and stood him in class of his own as a world class romantic actor,” Nigeria Films reported.

“He is charming, can wait to see the movie. A powerful story line,” said one of those who read the exclusive report.

Marc is Dale the born again “Oyinbo” husband of Franca, a black Nigerian woman acted by the pretty and sexy Nigerian-Brazilian actress and Nollywood diva Alex Lopez seemed to be very faithful until he met Lola another sexy black woman at an Architectural conference in a beautiful hill top hotel. Where the seductress tempted and lured the married man into her bed on the last night of the conference and his life was never the same again. Black and beautiful British actress Rachael Young was the temptress Lola in Changing Faces. Other popular Nollywood stars in the movie are Keppy Ekpenyong who was the boss of Dale, Ayo Mogaji-Dabo and Femi Brainard.
