    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.

    Gugu!!!!
    to quote BBfly, you defintely reached in my brain and extracted my thoughts.
    YES!!!
    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.

    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.

    Omot was the business in this movie, and I loved the pairing with Majid.
