There have been many wedding movies out of Nollywood in the past few years alone. But how many of them have been bachelors’ eve/wedding eve films?
And we all know the day before is as important as the day itself.
There was the Ale Ariwo classic from over a decade ago but until now, there seems to have been no movie with beautiful pictures, amazing music and a delicious blend of melanin.
This is what The Eve brings and here are five reasons why this movie is the most beautiful movie so far in 2018.
- The music is beautiful
This is probably the best music score ever out of Nollywood in a very long time. A rich blend of familiar sound and original music, the music in The Eve, could never bring grieve, best believe.
Maybe Tosin Igho needs to do more sound design and mix work on many more Nollywood projects.
- There’s loads of sex. Sexy sex.
There is a lot of talk about sex in this movie and a lot of sex is had. And guess what? The best part? Actual hot people – Mawuli, Hauwa, Uche and co – are the ones having the sex.
- Mawuli Gavor shirt-less.
Mawuli Gavor is a man that could never get us used to him removing his shirt. And of course, he serves all that chocolaty goodness on a platter in The Eve, giving not just eye candy but eye cookie, eye ice cream, ice vanilla pudding, eye pounded yam, eye jollof… Okay.
- The picture is actually beautiful
There is no need to tell the obvious – that Nollywood has grown incredibly where pictures are concerned in recent times – still, there is no harm in telling the obvious; Nollywood has grown immensely in showing good pictures in recent times.
And The Eve is a movie that doesn’t hold back in showing that goodness.
- There is no unnecessary Lekki/Ikoyi bridge shot
After too many years in the ‘we must shove Lekki/Ikoyi bridge in your face whether you like it or not’ phase in Nollywood, a film that plays with different shots in its cinematography resists the urge to use that overused ‘monument’ in its pictures. After the very first scene, the film concentrates on what it came to do – tell a story, and resists the urge to be predictable in shots.
Which means, they’re not regular.
If this doesn’t make you extra interested in seeing the film, I really don’t know what will.
The Eve will premiere on Saturday, March 24 at the Landmark Towers in Lagos.
