17mins into the movie and I am so tempted to switch to some anime...

Hard work obviously, beautifully shot, but annoyingly slow. When is the story starting abeg? I'm still trying to figure out the characters, what they do, with their attrocious Yoruba...

The movie is aesthetically beautiful, it is but boy oh boy...the Yoruba, ki lo de? ahn ahn. I had this same problem with An African City and I have to endure another butchering of a really beautiful language. Other than that, it was nice.

I got to 31mins where the story is starting to pick up. They could have cut off everything before that time. I will finish it.

No probs. But, as Tunmi pointed out, it is very beautifully shot though!
Hmm, I did say that earlier, even though I question the effectiveness of several of the shots and focus choices (I wouldn't have made similar choices), but its obviously an art movie not stylistically made for everyone. Pace is questionable too. It needs an editor who is not emotionally invested in it to hack at it. It is different though. My overall views will come when I get to the end.
