-Story: [4 out of 5] Oh! I loved it, I loved it and I loved it. I realize how I come on this category and talk about how much I loved it when in reality nobody gives a hoot about how much or if at all I loved it so I’ll just proceed to tell you that THIS was a beautiful story.

 

-Originality: [4 out of 5] Very Very original. I can’t give much away

 

-Predictability: [4 out of 5] I was 100% sure that I had a fair idea of what would happen at the end but it seemed like after every 5 scenes, the expected ending would change. This movie is very touching and if you are the “I cry at the movies” type then you just might loose a tear here and there.

 

-Directing/Editing: [2 out of 5] This movie had approximately 25 mins screentime for each part, therefore, the movie could have been done in only two parts, or dare I say, ONE part.

 

-Acting Quality: [3 out of 5] The acting in this movie was brilliant from all corners. Jackie Appiah did her thing and convinced me for real (who are the people who say this girl can’t act?). Majid was on point and in fact, he was also beyond the point as usual. I love KALSUM SINARE that lady is an actress. Herself + Jackie = Deadly combo. David Donto was good too. The baby used in this movie was too cute, I thought I should just put that out there. Plus I also noticed something else, it seems to me like Majid is gaining weight… hehe. The ego is setting in (either that or the Ghanaian equivalent of MCDs aka McDonalds)

 

-Settings and Costumes: [4 out of 5] Loved it, they were meticulous at every detail even to the point of ensuring that Jackie Appiah had swollen feet in pregnancy and I must say, the feet was tres convincing (very convincing).


-Video and Audio Quality [4 out of 5] Great

 

-Soundtrack [4 out of 5] Liked the soundtrack. Good Music

Chasing Hope, 5.7 out of 10 based on 3 ratings

    I am not really a Ghanian movie fan, but its good to know that this is a good movie. But why do they always have to have parts like 1,2,3,4 haba. http://www.secretlilies.blogspot.com
