    the sense of familiarity with a lot of other movies is in there. especially the nanny audition part, and an episode of charmed where a baby was dropped at the doorstep or somehting of the charmed ones an Piper and Dan fell in love whiles caring fr the baby.

    Through the looking glass

    new to naija rules. It already is the best looking Naija produced movie I've seen considering it's shot on the P2 cam. It's even better looking than Jeta Amata's Amazing Grace because the cinematographer used the lenses. For those who don't know, the lenses are what give movies the rich look. The lenses and accessories necessary are more expensive than the camera. That's why Naija movies don't look right. They don't use the lenses. It's too expensive. Live in Los Angeles. Will try to attend the premiere

    what makes it a "Nigerian movie"? the fact that it was directed by a Nigerian?

    it was not produced in Nigeria. was not shot in Nigeria. does not deal with any overtly Nigerian themes. as far as i can tell, there is only one Nigerian actor in it.

    so how is it a "Nigerian movie"?

    Brown Sugar Brown Sugar (film - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and The Wood (The Wood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) were written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa... do you consider these to be "Nigerian movies"?

    personally, i am not saying it is any one thing or the other.

    all i want to know is: if you say that it is a "Nigerian movie," tell me what makes it so.

    It was produced and directed by a nigerian. Pascal Atuma is in the movie, is he not a nigerian? that means there are two nigerians in the film. So if it is not a nigerian film or american film, maybe its a neutral film. Its safe and best to call it a nigerian film

    did Stepahnie produce the movie by herself? i am pretty sure she didn't... Pascal Atuma may have been a co-producer, but i think there might have been other non-Nigerian producers involved. so how do you categorize that?

    did she write it by herself? dunno... i guess we'll have to see the credits.

    so there are two Nigerian actors in it vs. how many non-Nigerians?

    how intrinsic is the "Nigerian-ness" to the movie? is it a key element or cosmetic? from what i can see in the trailer, the Nigerian theme is not all that central to the plot in any way.

    at least Pascal Atuma's movies--while produced in America--do tend to center around the Nigerian experience in some way. i don't know if this movie does (i mean, maybe it does in some way that is played down in the trailer).

    like i said, i am not saying it is not a Nigerian movie, though i am interested in knowing why those who claim it is believe it to be so.

    and i'd like to know if they feel the same about Brown Sugar and The Wood... are they "Nigerian films"? if not, why not?

    what about all the high-profile movies shot by cinematographer Remi Adefarasin? are they also Nigerian?

    also: do these people consider the records of Sade and Seal to be "Nigerian music"?

    (that much being said, i definitely think Raskimono is wrong to call this a "Naija produced movie".)

    If you look at the trailer well you get to see a bit of the trailer. Its written, produced and directed by Stephanie, she did this movie after getting off film school (New York Film Academy). Dont care what its called anyways, nigerian film or not. I really dont care about these factors.
