Its a beautiful movie, the depth of the Yoruba language, the rich cultural values, the casting, the storyline and interpretation are all beautiful. I am sure Prof. Soyinka would be proud of this.
Yet, I do not expect all to appreciate this movie because not all would understand the logic and hard work embedded in the adaptation of a stage play into filming.
