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.
