    While serving as a youth corper in a small town in the east Donald Eze(Desmond Elliott), a young handsome man meets and falls in love with Nkem(Genny) a small town beauty. Their love blossoms and they promised to get married as soon as Donald gets settled. Donald leaves for Lagos with a promise to come back for Nkem asap but in a twist of faith some things happen.... A must watch

    A Rob Emeka and Emem Isong Production
    Directed By Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen
    Casts include: Desmond Elliot, Genevieve Nnaji, Patience Ozokwor, Carol Cee


    I did enjoy this. Desmond and Genny did a great job. My kind kind of movie. So I will rate it 8.9/10

    i am waiting on pins and needles for this one.
    Finallly Genny in a movie with Patience again. I love them together in a movie as mother and daughter. Thanks for they sypnosis. At least one final good performance to finalise 2007 - plus its an Emem production - i can forgo seeing all the rubbish until i get my hands on this one. I really look forward to this.

    By the way AbbyA - welcome to NR, hope you enjoy it.

    Very very nice movie. :)

    Genny is a star, i never get tired of watching her.

    Genny and Dessy did a good job. The cast was well put together. The lady that played Dessy wife, knows how to scream; my tv almost cracked open.

    Genny pairs well with anyone. Now i need to see her and yelling Mike; i'm curious to know how that pairing will be like.


    Rating: 9/10

    they have already paired on Critical Decision - i am sure that was enough for her - No more screaming mike sweat:

    i'd like her to act opposite Van - After Van takes a year long intensive acting class sweat: with RMD mentoring him or something. I dont want to see them now, hell no. Van is not ready sweat: You dont want this Mr Vicker - you definately dont want this sweat: I am jokin yall, i am confident with a good director and a good script, they'll both nail it (like i said i enjoyed him in Adaefuo). I definately dont like the Beyonce / Tyra director-producer of a guy. If that movie is good - i swear it will be the bestseller of all times - A Genny Nnaji/Van Vicker combo - oooooooweeeee, I can just imagine the excitement - cos they combined GLOBAL fans is phenomenal and out of this world.

    I say the director/producer go head pay them a couple of millions each, cos he will definately recoup his money in no time ("IF" the script is good and Vans performance is up to par of Gennys). THIS WILL BE THE GREATEST CASH COW.

    My dear thressa you have a good taste on nigerian movie, if you say the movie was good then it would be a must watch for everyone, you are right Dessy and Genny looks good as a couple. genny looks good with most actors, i can't wait to watch the movie, am getting a copy as soon as possible. Thanks Thressa.

    I know. I want to see post-critical decision. Since Genny came back on top, it will be interesting to see how Mike fairs with her. Genny brings out the best in Dessy, i want to see that same magic in Mike.

    Beauty and brains together they will not disappoint. I think Van needs someone to push him, surely he will get it if he pairs with Genny. Nadia ain't doing nothing that's why we are seeing the same acting over and over again.


    Akos and Wilhemina stop wasting time, go grab this movie. If there's anything that needs to convince you that Genny has improved then this is the movie. I'm sorry but i will pick this movie over Wind of Glory. There was never a dull moment, no dragged out scene, no grammatical blunders, no irrevelant scene. Everything was up to par for me. I loved every minute of it. This is definitely a collector's item. I'm loving Dessy too, he's getting there with my girl.grinning:

    Ma sister grab - you say???
    you think i will be sitting here if this movie had landed on the soil of united states. You guys in naija and london are lucky - you get yours early. Trust me, if this movie was in NYC - i will get it ASAP, its not there yet, I am waiting patiently cos thanksgiving, thats what i will be chilling in my bed watching.

    As for Dessy he has proved to me practice makes perfect, and that is why i have hope for Van. I remember Desmond in his early years, he wasnt this good as he is now, so it goes to show, practice and gazillion of movies has made him better. I am proud of him. He is almost an A class actor in my books now. I cant wait for this movie.

    I must say that this week has been really good, i have been watching some great nigerian movies, and one of them is this movie. All i can say is vow i loved the acting and the casting, though the storyline is noting new, but the outstanding performance form the cast takes the movie to another level. My girl Genny you are a great actress you have done it again you are one of the best actress in nollywood, and you deserved an award this year, loved you in every movie. Thressa and others thanks for your good reviews i really appreciate it. Good performance form all the cast, the lady that played desmond wife was quite good, that woman can scream she is the sister of Michael Ezuruonye, when it comes to screaming. I rate the movie 9/10 highly recommend

    sweat:sweat:
    You couldn't have said it any better. She can scream, but she's good. The cast was exceptional. Like you said the story is nothing new but the story was told in a more matured way then any others and the cast did a good job in putting life into it.grinning:

    Who is this one NEWBIE screaming chick, i hope yall not interpreting SCREAMING to mean good acting, She's pretty, but the screaming is not pretty AND Ngozi (CArol Cee) honestly doesnt faze me - all the faking of accents completely put me off her b4 she even gets popular. (THATS A GREAT START CAROL - grinning: - the worst phrase of faking accent by her when she said "Why didnt i think of this beforrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" - I was like ok, Let me forward this scene).

    Loving the movie though grinning:, i will review and rate later. Nnamdi (Desmond) i cant imagine anyone screaming at their parents like that. Ngozi Ezeonu, i think has a lost a tad bit of weight, it shows in her face. I enjoyed watching it. Beautiful Love Story. My Rating 8/10 - Predictable ending, "Isong/Imasuen" usual Poetic love phrophecy scenes by Desmond sweat:

    GENNY NEVER NEVER FAILS
    LIKE I SAID B4, IF GENNY WAS A STOCK, I KNOW MY MONEY IS GUARANTEED AND WILL ALWAYS GET MY RETURNS.
    A STOCK WORTH INVESTING IN. sweat: THE WAY SHE BRINGS LIFE TO A CHARACTER IS BEYOND WORDS, LOVE YA GENNY grinning:


    Dessy and Genny are becoming a favourite pair lately. They come right after Muna and Genny for me. I'd like to see Muna act opposite Ufuoma Ejonobo and another lead role between Genny and the Edochie Guy. Genny definately has to be seen opposite Jim Iyke for '08. Anyway i am not going to give it away. Its a nice movie - very nice, so BUY it and WATCH it. Hm i wish a man would mention somebody else's name whilst, hmmmmm, i will cut it off right there and there. Anyway why nollywood movies pretend they'd just had a sex scene, yet they take the covers off and all of them are fully clothed is so laughable. I guess its a new one, "Sex whilst fully clothed" - i guess its safer.



    Favourite Phrase: "No Pension, No gratuity" (Patience will kill me with laughter )

    I saw this movie last week and it was really worth my money.As it is usual with Emem Isong's scripts,the dialogues were brilliant,the casting was spot on and the suspense was off the hook.Really good movie I must emphasise..
