NAME OF REVIEWER: Oresanya Touwalope Emmanuel
• I noticed a lot of Crane shots coupled with panning towards the left and right.
• Not a lot of tracking shots were applied i noticed just twice or thrice.
• Averagely 65% of all the shot were Mid -angle shots
• As for the high shots it was used when introducing a new scene or place.
• The extremely long shot was used only about thrice and these were the first scene, and the first time Ibadan was showed.
• The most used type of transition in this movie was the ‘cut’ and Fade-out.
The Camera speed was moderate or normal.
THE LANGUAGE/ DICTION
• The language used was simple English language and clear for anyone at all to understand.
QUOTE 1: In this we did that the youth of our colleges and Universities might learn
QUOTE 2: FIWAJOMI don’t forget your God... (MAMA FIWAJOMI- Rev. Mrs. Janet Oluwoye)
SOUNDS: the sound/ tune played as the background was not actually specific, it was just the instrumentals of some gospel hymns.
The movie tries to capture the experiences of two teenagers from two different family backgrounds who are news to a university setting, the movie portrays their reactions to these temptations and challenges and how they either fall for it or overcome it...
The film made use of two main settings:
RURAL SETTING- possibly a little village at the outskirts of Ibadan, oyo State, Nigeria
URBAN SETTING- Bowen University. Iwo, Oyo State, Nigeria.
(The movie begins with a crane-shot of the rural/ village setting and environs then begins panning right and left).
Fiwajomi (Adewusi Oluwagbemileke), a boy in his mid- teenage years, gains admission to study law in a private University, but receives the greatest shock of his life-‘’there is no money’’ were the words of this poor father.
He becomes down cast, Abike this kid sister tries consoling him with the aim of believing all will be well all to no avail, She prays all things will get well.
Fiwajomi is prescribed to apply for a scholarship scheme which will see him through school, since he had a good jamb and post UME score, this was a suggestion by his uncle- James.
On the other side, Wuraola (Olakunle Ayobami), another girl in her mid teenage years gains admission from an average family that resides in the City; she is the only child of a single father Carpenter, due to this situation, her father cherishes her so much.
Fiwajomi, after so much warnings from his parents at home not to make bad friends and all, he has this so much in mind, he finally resumes in school and meet a like mind- Daniel another from a morality upright background in the city:
Due to Fiwajomi’s good and commendable performance at school works, he attracts the attention of way-ward boys. T-man and Ganja (final year student), both contact him to help them with their carry-over courses, since convocation will not be
Possible without those courses cleared.
On Wuraola’s path, a bet is placed on her spiritual standard by T-man and Ganja. Dickson, a final year student took a bet to get her in two months with the reward of clearing his previous debts. After so much cohersion, she succumbs to Dickson’s proposal...
When she refuses Dickson’s advances for sex, he breaks up with her and leaves her heart broken and remorseful.
Fiwajomi on his part was set up by his friends who took hard drugs, he could not defend himself and due to the lack of evidence to buttress his points, or claims, he was expelled in his first year just few hours before his scholarship was approved by the board...
(Medium shot) Camera movement (Dolly-In)
FINALE: Wuraola had a second chance to repent for her way-ward life style, but Fiwajomi did not...
I would say that the movie was actually a great success, compared with most Nigerian movies that generally are produced in a rush. It was a job well done; the story behind the movie was good enough.
I will rate it 73%... it was nice...
