The Set Up for flashbacks
4 May 2020 | by colbertadrianSee all my reviews

The main reason for me watching this film was Adesua Etomi-Wellington, I've watched a few of her movies and have enjoyed them, she is (IMO) very beautiful, and a good actress, so I hoping for another enjoyable film featuring her, this movie didn't deliver on that premise, flashback after flashback, left the movie very disjointed, and gave no reason to care for any particular character, looking at Adesua was the only reason I hung around, however big UP to Netflix for featuring International films, there are really good Nigerian films to watch.
