Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Majid Michael, Tonto Dikeh

Written & Directed by Tchidi Chikere

Produced by Azuka Odgngkwe

SYNOPSIS: There goes two beautiful sisters, of which the older one Catherine (OmoT) is involved in an automobile accident which claimed the life of her father and left her disfigured. As a result of her disfiguration, Catherine has lost her self-confidence and the ability to accept love. She has low self-esteem and differs from her younger sister Debbie (Tonto Dikeh) on most things. No man has ever loved Catherine or shown her affection; but when the rich, handsome stranger Omar (Majid) walks into Catherine's life, her newfound happiness is threatened by Debbie's desire to steal her man. Will Debbie succeed or will Catherine prevail? Who will win Omar's attention and at what cost?

Tchidi Chikere shows beautiful soul in ‘Deepest of Dreams’

I lambasted Chikere for past films like Hope for Tomorrow that lack real meaning and Friends in Love (Used People) which fail miserably at successfully utilizing actors of immense talent, but with ‘Deepest of Dreams’, Chikere succeeds wonderfully at contrasting spiritual and physical dimensions, told through rationally cadenced narrative. The hardened, thick, black prosthetic used as F/X makeup (Kingsley Godwin) as seen on Omotola Jalade Ekeinde’s face, can only compel viewers to confront predetermined, distorted notions and ideals of “good looks”.

Debby (Tonto Dikeh) is Catherine’s (OmoT) catty, devilish, whorish younger sister who makes life that much worse for her in constantly dovetailing the words “ugly” and “truth” in the same breath. Omar (Majid Michael) comes into Catherine’s life as a divine prince, clothed in royal African garb (Chiemela Nwagboso), lavishly purchasing all of her charge cards, and returning in a red-colored Hummer, offering to take her from having to work on the streets and to pay her school fees to become a nurse. Bena (Geredine Ekeocha), Catherine and Debby’s mother, is certain (and protecting of) that her daughter Catherine is indeed beautiful in spite of being facially disfigured and confined to using underarm crutches, after being involved in a tragic motor car accident which ended the life of her father. Dr. Orkah (Prince Eke) helps Catherine in rebuilding her lost self-esteem and self-worth, by presenting an affective solution that effectually transitions Catherine from “crutches” to “cane.”

The film is...

Wow!! This one is a homerun for Omot and Tchidi. What a great, deep movie!!

Great acting by all concerned!


Tchidi is a very inconsistent writer and director. Sometimes he slams it out of the park and sometimes, he screws things up. Let me by saying that in my opinion, this was a slam dunk, a grand slam, a home run! What I wonder though, is why he had to give such a good movie such a ridiculous name. Who names these things? I almost did not watch it. And yet, what a good movie it turned out to be!

Rating 8/10

Full review

Abeg, buy an original copy of this one o. Its worth keeping.

My Review:

Catherine and Debbie are sisters. Debbie is known as the beautiful sister and Catherine the ugly one because of a car accident that left her face scarred and lame in one foot. Catherine is derided by her sister and even perfect strangers based solely on her looks whereas Debbie’s looks are almost celebrated. Things start looking up for Catherine when Omar comes into her life. He stops one day to buy a recharge card from her and actually appears to looks past her physical appearance. They become close and when everything is going great Catherine discovers something that is to shatter her world.

_____________

At first this movie reminded me of The Sadist with Clarion Chukwurah (excellent movie by the way. If you haven’t seen it then you should!) but the differences become apparent quite quickly as in the Sadist Clarions character’s disfigurement make her bitter and full of anger and hatred, whereas Catherine always remains sweet natured and caring.
_____________

Omotola does a great job portraying Catherine. In one scene Catherine comes across a man that doesn’t flinch when he looks at her and treats her like anybody else and it is beautiful to watch. He even calls her “my dear” which sends her into a jubilant frenzy. She is amazed that for once she is actually being treated as a human being and excited over a situation that so many of us would take for granted. We see her elation in the way that afterwards she takes the notes that he used to pay for the recharge cards and rubs them all over her face, as though trying to remain linked with him in his absence.

I loved,loved,loved this one. Omo T is a great actress and her emotions where on point.
She is so believable when it comes to showing emotions that you tend to believe its real.
She has lost alot of weight and it suits her well.
I normally don't like Tonto's acting but she did a great job here.
Majid was good as usual and he is gradually growing on me.
I'll give this one a 8/10. Pls watch it!!!

I just watched this movie, and my hat goes off to the ENTIRE cast!!!...no jokes.
As others have mentioned, the story depicts the lives of two sisters Catherine (Omotola), and Debbie (Tontoh) after Catherine is involved in a motor accident wihich leaves her disfigured and without a father.

Omotola practically sizzles in this role. It takes a certain level of maturity, and introspection, to be able to pull off a role like this. This chick was ALWAYS in character, and soo believable. I never for once doubted that she didn't have hardened scar tissue on her face and a mangled leg. She fully committed to this role. She takes the viewer on an emotional rollercoaster. You feel every insult, and you also find yourself smiling when she has cause to smile...She made that character so real. In one scene, Catherine (omotola's) mother was saying that she used to be beautiful, but it was the accident that took her looks..my girl said, but "mama, I didn't die...I didn't die, I'm still here"...It was as if she was challenging them and the viewer to stop mourning the loss of her looks, and rejoice in the fact that Her life was spared..she almost had me crying. She really is versatile, and can play docile, disabled, bitchy,name it ...we gats to give this woman some credit Dammit...She is THAT GOOD!!!:bow::bow:

Tonto, was soo mean in this movie, that I absolutely hated her character. She delivered the role of a narcissitic Beyatch to a T...good job from her.

Majid, Majid, Majid....you always find ways to remind me, of why you're one of my top actors. It was an absolute delight seeing he and Omotola vibe off of each other...like a meeting of the minds. I really would enjoy seeing him pair off with OmoT again in another Tchidi flick.


.........and introducing Prince Eke, as Dr. Orkah. He was in the latter part of the movie, and was a nice addition, plus a delightfully good-looking one to add.

I discovered Tchidi Chikere on this site, and what a happy day it was. As an artist, you cannot please all the people all the time, but the sum total of Tchidi as a screenwriter/producer/director, is that he takes the road less travelled. In this movie, he challenged us to pick between the beauty we can see, and beauty with more depth... I appreciate the fact that he's less likely give the viewer a predictable cookie cutter movie...Thanks Tchidi...I ride for you any day for LIFEgrinning:

Rating (9/10)...Please buy this...don't rent, watch online, or bootleg...it's that good, and we need to give it up to those who don't insult our intelligence with craptastic offerings.

OmoT overkilled it for me...... I can't believe how improved she has become...... She is so internationally geared up and I think Ije has a role to play in this cause Gene also stepped up as seen in Silent Scandals.....

Thinking of it Tchidi has made some real good movies..... With a good crew, good equipments and a good story like this one, Blood sisters, Live to remember, Rising Sun, World Apart.... the guy will become one of the best.....
His consistency is really shocking despite haven made some bullcrap as well....

Very nice home video!! Very nice!!

Peckham used to have a few sellers but I don't see them anymore... they just have some dusty shops with old ass movies, so old that the colour on the covers is faded from age, sun and water damage...
