Breath of fresh air!
24 April 2019 | by teetom11See all my reviews

FINALLY - a movie shot in Nigeria with international standards. Effortlessly funny and cunning, superior direction and cinematography. Eclectic, intentionally entertaining and attention gripping. Perfect blend of wit and humor depicted through deliberately complex yet simple visuals. Left me with the happy fuzzys.
