The Gods Are Still Not To Blame
The Gods Are Still Not To Blame

Shot in Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon, “The Gods Are Still Not to Blame” has the trappings of an authentic African movie(from the music to the language) with a breathtaking scenery and top notch costumes that appeals to a global audience. The film is a contemporary treatment of Oedipus Rex.  The acting is of a very high standard from both the old and new faces of Nollywood. Unfortunately, the film is marred by poor lighting and inconsistent subtitling. As a whole, the movie works with its infusion of history, drama, culture, literature and romance.
