The film cinematography almost felt like a filmed play at times.....but that is just my observation.
The plot was thick and readable part way in but far enough in to keep my interest.
I really liked the setting, the clothing, and the characterizations. The best obviously, is the old inspector.
This gave me a feel for what I hear is an up and coming Nigerian film scene.
The mixture of culture and language was very interesting. Some English, mostly subtitles. Some British influence, mostly Nigerian.
Cheesier parts like the murder scenes and investigation of murder scenes at really real locations sparked my interest.....I guess. On the whole, the nature of these just added to my interest in the film.
