Today's Movie for review is Desecration.
I almost cried after seeing this movie because I was angry, disappointed that I wasted a substantial amount money and my precious time at the cinema.
Synopsis: This story of enthrallment and obsession explores how a chance meeting and a casual encounter quickly becomes a living nightmare for Olusola Daniels (Joseph Benjamin), a brilliant medical doctor and his young family. Following a romantic weekend with the gorgeous Linda Bruce (Rita Dominic) Olushola assumes he can just walk away.
written and produced by Bode Odetoye.
Set in London, UK, this 2017 directed by Niyi Towolawi tells the story of a Nigerian Doctor, Sola Daniels, his wife Adesua, who is a legal practitioner, and his mistress, Linda, who is a professional pest. Adesua travels with their nine-year-old for one weekend, and Sola gets together with Linda who becomes obsessed with him. She demands that they continue the affair even after his family returns, and while he is reluctant, she doesn’t let up until she gets pregnant. Then she goes full throttle on her quest to ruin his home.
Everything...characters, acting, story line ....everything was so boring. Joseph and Rita are perhaps the most outstanding as expected from their wealth of experience, but even their showing is not one of their bests.
It had no inspiration, no soul and had so many errors too.
Imagine Joseph Benjamin waking up after sex with all his clothes on, including his belt while the woman beside him is naked. It is confirmed that they had sex; who dressed him up while they both were asleep?
The only thing praiseworthy about Desecration was the fine picture quality and choice of location.
Everything else as rubbish.
The good guys at cinema movie pointer already described it as " Uninspiring. Sorely predictable. Just watchable. Expect nothing special. 'Desecration' is a depressing melancholic made for TV drama. Lukewarm at its best. Tortuously boring at its worst. And the "worst" is twice as much as the best. Do the math." but I went on to watch cos I was a die hard fan of Rita Dominic and oh boy, I regret it.
