Breath taking is the Word
26 November 2004 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

This is a movie or would I aptly say a tale about EL I EF E(I mean LIFE). It has got it all- relationships, family, betrayal, trust, greed, faith, bravery and of course LOVE. It takes us on a journey of one man's life(a Good man I might add) from his birth to death and the events that shaped his situation all the way.

I do recognise that it may not appeal to some movie lovers, however I think

if it is given a chance at least for the first 20mins, u gonna get glued to the edge of your seats. Funny enough I saw it as a consolation for missing an action movie at the cinema, and I am Grateful to have watched it. U really cannot guess what the next scene would be all about unlike so many movies that are churned out- I was proved wrong on about all my predictions of what I thought the next scene would be based on mi experience.

It is a Fine Movie- it brings out so many Lessons which I think are useful as one moves on in life......
