So I have enjoyed movies like "fire on the mountain", "A stab in the dark", "under fire", ukwa" etc and now I have madam dearest on my list. But the special thing though about this movie is that I can see myself watching it again. All the charaters acted very well and it looked so real. The only thing was I do not understand the language and had to read it off the screen. Not too clear reading. It was a one dvd with two discs of part one and two for me but boy were they long. I spent the most part of last night watching it.

I liked the ending too when he narrated the stuff to us. It appearred long yes, but I found myself going thru different emotions when I listened to him. He is a brillant actor...All of them were. i will give the movie 8 out of 10.

But did the movie end after he narrated the events that took place to his son and ex-wife when all three of them finally met? I think I read up there that there were three discs. Someone please let me know.

Thanks. Now I wonder, if Daniel and the ex-wife got back together? After all, she left the husband or at least he allowed her to go. Damn, did you see how he treated her with those college girls? Oh my God, I could actually feel my blood boiling thru my veins. What I do not understand was why she still chose to stay with him and take all that verbal abuse? I am surprised he did not also get physical with her. I felt sorry for him and then angry. With the wife, boy can she act and although she was silent, she still sent out messages and one could tell exactly how she felt without her opening her mouth...that was classic right there. The so-called friend of the wife's was also an expert in that field... :roll

Daniel too also had that silent acting skills and he delivered well well. I just kept watching their facial expressions and could relate to how they felt. The movie was a classic...Ama darling the movie was the bomb...my first Yoruba movie...it took me three weeks to finally watch it as I took the movie off the shelf by accident and I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever....in fact, I give it a 9.5 out of 10:) smokin:

What about that scene where the husband(the one that went to prison) was going over their past and afterwards, told the wife that she was free to go, sad as the man had nothing left; what a waste!

True o ma sister...I had tears in my eyes...and what got it really bad for me was when he kept looking at the pictures against the wall of himself and herself at a younger age. that was when it hit me how real the events were. that was really the turning point of the movie. i went thru different emotions for all of them...but he was really the only one though that i found myself getting angry at as he was quite annoying in some scenes....but the funny thing was he really did not deserve what happened to him.

The lady should have told him the truth when he came back from prison. But she was so scared and probably did not want to hurt him after all that he has been thru. A terrible situation. In the end, it appeared that she did not have much to lose like he did. He was obviously the reason why they could not have kids. She at least had one child.

Ama, some of the scenes in the movie did not add up. They say Daniel was a Ghanaian but his Twi was not good. His Twi does not have to be all that, but they should have had someone who spoke the language better than Daniel did...but he is a wonderful actor and I can understand why they preferred him though. When he went back to Ghana he still spoke Yoruba and that did not make sense to me. His friend was also from Ghana and so the two of them should have been seen speaking in Twi. Even his friend’s daughter kept speaking to him in Yoruba. Had the friend been from Nigeria, it will have been understandable why they spoke Yoruba, as that was the friend’s language. That part of the movie did not flow well. I know it is a Yoruba movie but if you are going to say one is from a certain country and in fact have him acting in that country, then you need to let the story flow well too by having him speak his language with his people. Even the son who was raised in Benin most of his life was also speaking Yoruba...he could have spoke broken English or so.

Good points. I also wondered how no one told the husband about his wife and the houseboy/man.

Go for ABENI by Tunde Kelani.I am recommending it because it has excellent subtitling.
There are quite a few excellent YMG flicks but most of them have very poor subtitles.

I will try that one..if there is a thread about it, i will post my comments there later. thanks
 
This movie gets a 9/10. it was good. i even cried @ the end. the only thing was i notice minor errors in the movie, with the english transalation and the ages of the actors and actress. but nobody is perfect. over all the enjoyed the movie and wouldnt mind seeing it again. i espeically loved sola shobowale's acting with the way she just threw out insults anyhow.
