I loved the movie, and have seen it many times. I thought that Justice Esiri was excellent, and the poetry in his lines about getting old, and in his proposal to Patience were unforgettable. One clearly saw the professionally trained actor in him in this movie.The part when he was reciting the names of old school songs, and what he used to be in his youth touched me. He was fit for the role. The beginning of the movie, when Justice spoke about his first wife and got "soft" made me feel for him - a success for a movie, taking you into the story emotionally.
Patience was also excellent, along with the driver, the landlord, the washer woman and her husband.
Class was slipped into the movie in very subtle ways : 1. conversation between the washer woman and her husband, he berating her for not getting the "attention" of her boss, and her response about his economic failure; 2. when the washer woman was explaining to Justice why she could not pack into his house with her husband to ease his loneliness in his big house; 3. in the very beginning when the landlord was collecting his late rent from Patience, and she was giving him the reason for lateness - due to pensions not being paid. I was so realistic. I began to really appreciate Tchidi a lot in this movie, and in All My Life. It is must see movie. I was impressed with Tchidi's script writing and directing in this movie.
to quote BBfly, you defintely reached in my brain and extracted my thoughts.
Was Justice not great? did you not fall in love with Patience's character the same time he was falling in love with her?
I see what you mean about the class thing too...
chei!! For me o, this is a collectible for me sha.
ahhhh, i have to go and find my copy of this movie, i haven't seen it in a long time.
what happened to tchidi chikere?
he used to take such care with his movies.
this one still remains one of my all time favourites.
Where does one find this one sef? So behind on homvies! :(
Love After Love is one movie I'll love to see, make i go hunting right away
if you're reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllly nice and sign a waiver promising to name your first daughter after me, and sign a form inked in blood that you will return it, i'll send you my copy
I know it's available on DVD....let me search around, and I'll holla at ya.
That Tchidi still lives......check out Deepest of Dreams.
thanks barbarellanoir, I'll look for it. I've been burned many times and took a break from the movies.
All this talk about TC and his village movies got me reminiscing and catch an update from him here
ok..ok...I see you barbarellanoir. I see you.
just saw part one and you're right. he still lives.
this guy just pulled me into that story. judging by the title if this girl is dreaming I will beat tchidi because I am so rooting for them.
I'll have to watch a second time, with a pad and pencil, this is the only movie that has stirred something mildly in my emotions in a very long time.
Tchidi is truly talented, and it's movies like Deepest of Dreams, that make me forgive/forget some of my gripes with some of his work. I LOVE what he did with Majid...seriously. Watching scenes between Omot and Majid, were great, because unlike some ghanaian movies, where you get to see how much better Majid is than everyone else, this wasn't the case here. It was a meeting of the minds, and I loved it. Just like pairing Justus Esiri with Patience Ozokwor was very imaginative and classic. We got to see how versatile Mama G is. Most people who write for her, pigeonhole her, but not Tchidi.
Thanks to everyone that talked about Deepest of Dreams! Saw it last night after a loooooooooooooong hiatus from EMG flicks and I was well satisfied!
Omotola, I bow!!!! The storyline had me shedding tears men!!! 3 thumbs up!
Omot was the business in this movie, and I loved the pairing with Majid.
