Why do they potray those who have gone abroad and returned in such a negative way? I mean. are we all that bad? Do we have to turn into thugs and bad women once we've stepped foot abroad?

Anyways, when i went home last, my language, mannerisms passed even those of my fomilik member at home.

Moviemakers, not everyone that goes abroad comes back wayward ooooo!

some parents are just cruel! haba :(

I will need to go watch the movie again in order to confirm this statement. If I remember well, she kinda reminded me of someone completely different from Stella.

There are times when i am close to giving up on nollywood flicks,EMG or YMG,but then,filmmakers like TK(Tunde Kelani) come out to remind me that a new higher level or standard is very much around.Though not yet dominantly active,but definitely idling and is getting ready to start revving.
Then i make a U-turn of hope and start to watch again,anytime i have enough time to do so.
That is what happened when i watched ABENI yesterday(thanks to olaafol).This flick atleast gives me hope(one more time) that nollywood is capable of going one step higher and maintaining that standard.
For real,every quality hungry nollywood nollywood fan should wake up every morning and give serious thanks to God almighty for giving naija's budding film industry a master filmmaker like TK,and then follow it up with fervent prayers to give us atleast 10 more TKs before the end of this year.
Abeni,as a movie(yes,i call it a movie and not a homvie) does not pretend to be a groundbreaking work,but what it does is wander into a very familiar premise and still come out looking as fresh as a daisy.Now that takes a mastery of filmmaking to achieve,and who else possesses that but TK,and he proves it once again.
Abeni is a beautiful flick to watch.Visually,it is a feast for the eyes.The photography is masterful,way higher than we are used to by other DP pretenders that parades their trades in the industry.
Abeni is a grade A nolly movie that will delight any moviewatcher that lays a lot of value on the aesthet.
Movies like Abeni feel me with pride and hope that nollywood will not fail,but realise it's full potential as a moviemaking industry capable of delivering worldclass productions.
Abeni is beautiful to watch,very beautiful.
Nice camera shots but story is nothing to write home about.

The story is not the most original,that is true,but the delivery is what this movie is all about.And that is what is appreciated here.You will not see such a delivery anywhere else but with TK and Mainframe.

Can't argue there.The use of area shots was very beautiful.

I'm really interested in getting my hands on Abeni and/or Madame Dearest 1 and 2, but the usual places in NYC don't carry them. I will gladly paypal/Western Union the appropriate kudi/ego/owo/moni to a trustworthy NR member anywhere who can get me these two, or just point me to the right place in or around NYC. All I can seem to get my hands on are third-rate pirated copies of EMG movies (which seem to be everywhere).
