StoryLine
Lily is hawkish and vociferous so renowned for her sheer flangrancy. On the other spectrum, Lydia is calm and reserved, buttersed by her loving parents. With the experience of such a comfortable environment however, she still fells an innate unusual feelings: gets wierd dreams at night feels awkward in her actions, and a general mystery quite undefined. Two separate worlds, two separate personalities, puzzles incomprehensible.
(Abeg this oxford english storyline above was not my grammar, i copied it from the back of the dvd box :lol: )

My Reviews
The story line was good - but the production and direction and acting was overly dragged and just not on point. I cant rave over this movie like i would Guilty Pleasures, Reloaded, Keeping Faith etc etc..
.
Overly dragged and annoying. Not worth your dime (DONT SPEND YOUR PRECIOUS MONEY TO BUY IT) - same ole nonsense campus theme movies, masquerade make up, smokings like chimneys, pidgeon english, cult blah blah blah. Just not my type of movie. The very kind of movie theme i describe here -
.
The type of nollywood themes to stay away from but i gave it the benefit of doubt due to Ini and Desmond .
.
I got a question for nollywood "Why do they always think a supposed bad character that overly smoking constitutes someone being a bad girl/boy", I mean really" ???? - you did not convince me much - Its so annoying. Cant you direct a movie and protray a bad ruthless character (and convincing one at that) without necessarily making them smoke as much.
.
There were several bunch of very bad actors in this movie - not one bit convincing in their roles, but i leave you to watch it and make your judgement call. Though i understand pidgeon a lot, i'd advice the director to have subtitled the areas where so much pidgeon english was spoken by Ini and Tontoh. Not all the audience will get it. Either way the movie was simply not up to par in my books - I wasted my time watching this. Too damn dragged and they had the nerve to put it in 3 parts :lol: na wa ohhhhhh.
.
I respect Livinus Nnochire (man who played Lydias dad) and have always liked his acting, but the other lady who played Lydias mom - Cassandra Odita (thats another story) - bad acting is an understatement.
.
One scene made me laugh though, Ini Edo wearing some serious Long Winter WHITE boots. I almost choked laughing.
.
I mean at this pace of nonsensity we are no where near gonna get to SLUMDOG MILLONAIREs calibre of gaining an oscar. Yes i said an Oscar, because to be best in the world you need to use the best as your yardstick.
.
Be more creative in your writing, producing and directing (and the acting too). Nollywood is 20yrs plus now -please as part of a growing audience we ask - lets graduate from mediocre movies such as this right here (unless your target is to a very small group of ppl in naija). You can still have a small budget but still come out with something great that makes us audience walk away feeling good and that we got our monies worth. I REPEAT THIS IS NOT WORTH A DIME.
.
My Ratings:
3/10
(i predicted it wasnt going to be that good by watching the previews, so i am glad to say i didnt spend my precious money to buy this rubbish)
