About supernatural powers and the nature of fear
10 November 2011 | by anneschumannSee all my reviews

Three friends find a figurine reputed to have magical powers in a remote part of Nigeria and bring it back to Lagos. Suddenly their luck in life radically changes for the better, but when they meet again seven years later...

A brilliant film: it treats one of Nollywood's (Nigerian Hollywood) common themes - sorcery, witchcraft and the supernatural - in a novel way to ask questions about the nature of fear, and about the source of evil.

To lighten the suspense there are many wonderfully comic moments, multiple love interests, all played convincingly by a very talented cast. Could not recommend this highly enough!
