I must commend the director for the way the camera moved when Bobby (Majid) was taking pictures. That was cool.
I finally figured out why I ended up liking this film, it was not just a Desmond Elliot thing, Daniel Ademinokan also had a hand. No offense Desmond, but you need to brush up some more. I admire your tenacity but either keep working with Daniel or go back for some more training. I want you to be good but it's just not there yet.
Nse has an ass. Omoni did well.
Watching the Kenechi (Rob Loner), Boma (Mercy Johnson) and Nse (Omoni) affair was hilarious. Mercy plays a deliciously evil person but I could have done without the acrylic nails and the distracting bangles and earrings. The acrylic nails ruin every romantic scenes.
Terso (Ramsey) and Liz (Nse) want to go on a vacation trip and Terso recommends somewhere in Nigeria. I love that the script has them looking to Nigeria rather than abroad. Now, if only he actually named several places. But I still love that the director and screenwriter had the characters look to vacation spots in Nigeria. Also directors, use scenic shots of Naija's beautiful natural sights. If the setting is in Lagos, have scenes of landmark areas, the roundabouts, the tall buildings (I'm fairly certain that we have some skyscrapers) not just the grand houses. The vacation spot in question is Kato Ranch, no idea where that is, or whether is fictional. Regardless, it was mentioned.
I love when actors point to their sternum and call it their heart. This is a plus because most people do it, so I do not see it as much of a gripe, more of a short-laugh-that's cute moment.
Omoni has the pretties brown eyes I have seen, although she does not stand out off camera. I see her picture during movie premieres and whatnot and there is nothing spectacular about her. But put her in front of the camera, in a film, and she strikes something.
Nse has green eyes? hazel eyes? If they are contacts, they fit well, unlike Mercy's cat eyes.
Majid is an excellent actor like no other. I want to see him, OC Ukeje, Femi Brainard and Segun Arinze together in something, particularly him and Segun Arinze. His rawness is explosive, and his body is divine. So, please no tattoos sweetie, please. And if you do happen to get one, please steer clear from that mess on Tonto's back.
Ramsey playing a brooding, jealous husband is something else. He is good, there is no doubt about it. And he nailed it.
I love the voice-overs, they are placed nicely sound-wise.
I take it back. I found another great kisser: Majid Michel. Majid or whomever taught him needs to give our Naija actors a lesson in making out. First, your eyes should not be open unless you manage to convey some passion with your eyes (Muna, Majid). Second, there is an art to this, it is not just sucking face. And it helps if your hands are not just glued to his face, you're an actor. Act as if you want this person and you'd have them right there and then, cameras be damned. Otherwise, do not do it at all. Merely hold hands, forehead to forehead, nose to nose, and then hug.
Desmond's character: "It is very important that we address ourselves on first time basis."
Terso: Do you know how much you embarrassed me in there?
Elizabeth: Do you know how much you bored me in there?
The telly is on again. I actually love it. Whatever it is that is showing on the tv is usually more interesting than whatever is going on. And even when it is the weather.
At the end, Terso is beating up his wife and the telly is still on. Mind you, he was outside waiting for his wife and brother to return.
The ending was more humorous than anything for me. Nse's cries sounded a bit too constrained. I laughed at her tears because she sounded constipated. It also did not help that there was laughter in the background.
