Seminal Movie in Nigerian Cinematic History
26 September 2018 | by tigerleapgorgeSee all my reviews

Living in Bondage the film that marked the start of Nollywood. It is a story of love, betrayal, suffering and redemption. The motifs of God and Satan plays a central roll in this film. Andy, played by Kenneth Okonkwo, makes a faustian bargain early on in the film. And his material gains is mirrors by his psychological loss. This duality of the material realm mirror the duality of the spiritual realm as there is no rest for the wicked. I walked out of the theater strong in faith. And faith in Nigeria is what I have now.
