If you enjoyed the 2016 movie “couple of days,” then this movie might also be quite appealing to you. It is about three different couples going through a lot in their marriages and at the verge of a divorce.
Although, we have being seeing a lot of movies about marriages and couples recently, this one had a unique story and a couple of lessons one could take home. This is a fantastic movie for singles and even those already in marriage, please take your time, when you need to make life changing decisions that would affect your lives and that of others around you. I liked the twist and the suspense towards the end, and for me I felt happier, that the end had a happy ending. Who likes it when couples divorce?
This movie was produced by Mike Ezuruonye and I must confess that I was impressed, considering his first entry in 2016 with Bro Jekwu, which didn’t quite cut it for me. I would say that this is a quantum leap and in the right direction. I really didn’t understand the storyline of his first ever directed movie, so I was worried to go watch this again, but then he proved me wrong this time. We could see that he paid more attentions to details and provided the audience, with something more engaging, interactive and interesting. One could tell that they gave in more this time. The script was good, the locations chosen were nice, cast, costumes, crew and production were also on point.
The movie started well with the 3 different couples telling us a brief history about their families and what made them unique, how they cope and why they couldn’t divorce their wives. It was like a narrative, where one person talks to the screen and then ask us some questions or our opinion like they really counted. For most of the scenes and questions, you could associate with them or even better still have a friend going through one of those problems or the other. So to Mike’s family, he was married to a very religious and disciplined woman, who would not bend the rules or disobey God, she took it to the extreme, if you may ask me, she virtually prayed about anything and everything and was so quick to cast and bind, each time any little incidence occurred, she totally ignored the physical and sexual need of her husband, thereby leaving him with no choice but to cheat on her, with one young, hot and sexy young lady. He almost left her for this young girl, till he saw at the very end that it wasn’t all that glitters that were truly gold and he learnt his lesson.
The second family was a young vibrant, famous actor who was popular at what he did, but had a wife he couldn’t display to anyone, despite all he did to make her leave and divorce him, she was determined to stay and make it work. He couldn’t understand the kind of patience she had towards him and why she was always willing to forgive him despite all that he did to her.
The last couple had a man who was willing to sacrifice anything in the world to make the marriage work, despite his selfish, bossy and arrogant wife, who wasn’t willing to make any sacrifices on her end. She neglected and disrespected her husband even in the presence of her staffs, this hurt him so badly that he wanted to file for a divorce.
There was something different about each couple and how they fought their different battles and were able to come out victorious, they all understood that for you to succeed in marriage you had to make sacrifices and give up some certain things. They also had to learn patience considering the varying backgrounds they all came from and the issues in life that fashioned them into who they were now. It was a beautiful end as they all had to learn to study and understand each other.
