So, there’s this short film titled The Life of a Nigerian Couple, that was released online sometime last week and everyone’s been talking about it (by everyone, I mean most of the filmmakers and actors on my twitter feed). You can check it out in the embedded player below.
Produced and directed by Adeola Osunkojo, and featuring, Okey Uzoeshi, Bisola Aiyeola and Uduak Patrick, The Life of a Nigerian Couple is a 12-minute film that follows a young couple living in Lagos, as they try as much as possible to live peacefully without killing each other.
Right from the third minute or so, I already had a very big grin on my face that was punctuated by outbursts of laughter every now and again.
All in all, it was a well written script, good acting and top notch production quality. It feels like a project that could easily become a regular series which, going by a video I saw on the directors YouTube page, is very likely what will happen.
Watch the short film below, and be sure to share your thoughts with us in the comment section below.
