    The film splits its plot between a strained relationship and the Nigerian Civil War, and never fully explores either aspect, however it's still a decent drama.

    This story was a beautiful picture of the balance of joy and sorrow during the time of the Nigerian Civil War. The actors paint vivid images of the realities of setbacks and victories in life set against the backdrop of a country in turmoil and seeking to grasp its own identity. I loved it and I would recommend it. If you are looking for something that will give you shallow stereotypical narratives of Africa, this is not the film. However, if you are seeking a film that will challenge your previous understandings and grow your compassion, this is DEFINITELY the film for you

    This is a soulless muddled mess that does great disservice to a great book.

    Quite difficult to get into, and painful to watch, this is nonetheless a worthwhile film about the futility and stupidity of war - among other issues. I did feel that it could have been done better. A worthy attempt.

    Could have been a great movie but muddles along with many scenes rushed as it cuts back and forth between the historical backdrop and the love melodramas
