Director: Tchidi Chikere Main Actors/Actresses: Patience Ozokwor, Justus Esiri, Tchidi Chikere, Rita Dominic. Brief Synopsis: Old widower falls in love with his widow cook, sparking a wave of jealousy in his younger washer-woman and the widow's son who both believe it is not right for them to do this at their old ages. The son, (in my opinion) is suffering from an extreme case of Oedipus complex, going as far as calling the widower a "mother-snatcher" (SCANDAL) and making things impossible for the two love birds. Meanwhile, the widower's daughter arrives from the US (where else?? :eyes ) and has given her father her blessing to re-marry and her path crosses with the widow's son (without knowing who he is) and they fall in love. Will the old love-birds marry? Will the potential step brother and step sister be able to marry? (watch out for part two) Ok. that is a brief syno of the movie. Now my thoughts. I looooooooooved the movie. It was refreshing seeing older actors playing this story of love. This movie touched on some essential human elements that abound in our society when it comes to this scenario: Jealosy, fear of being alone, Love, especially loving again after you've hit the "over the hill" mark, and one I find interesting: the extreme stigma placed on older women who want to marry again, and a son's love for his mother and his fear of loosing her. It was lovely seeing Patience in this role. She was so great, playing a shy bashful woman being chased by the widower. The concept of love among older folks was very tastefully done and developed. I could feel myself moving along with the characters and falling in love with Patience like the chief did. And I also knew the washer woman was going to make trouble and she played her part well. The ungratefulness and selfishness and fear of abandonment and neglect were unfeelingly portrayed by the actor, I heard his lines, but I couldn't feel them. The obstacles that love faced in this movie was great, although the actor who was presenting this challenge did a piss-poor job. This must be why older women in our society don't remarry, the stigma associated with the whole remarry business when your husband dies. The movie was simply done, but that didn't take away from the movie. The widower got me when he told Patience's character: "Am I the one to rekindle the dead fires of passion within you?" Old school macking. Gets the women every time. :D I would have loved if the stigma of loving again for older women angle were developed more, but all in all, it was nicely done. The actors/actresses in this movie were superb, (except for tchidi chikere, and rita dominic.) they did an excellent job in portraying this story. All in all, I loved the movie, it was superbly done with the exception of a few kinks and bad acting by Tchidi chikere. It almost suffered the same fate of most Nigerian movies, it almost faltered at the end, but it picked back up. Em, on another note: what the f**k were the writer and director thinking? Potential step brother and stepsister developing feelings? We're told to watch out for part 2 to find out. I think I'll skip it. Part 1 is too beautiful and ended just right to let a part 2 ruin it for me. Verdict: 8.5/10. (p.s: for such a brilliant director, Tchidi Chikere is a lousy actor. He should stick behind the camera and not in front of it.) If you've seen this movie what are your thoughts?
