Nimbe is an enjoyable film even though we’ve witnessed this story in film many times before. However this is the version by Nigerian film makers.
The action and acting is of Latin-American tele novela styly and the language was slightly jarring for me at first but was quickly overcome by the presence of believable characters, although the mother has some odd lines and does occasion act eccentric but this may be a Nigerian trait.
All in all I really enjoyed and would recommend to any lover of non English language film.
