Movie Review: 'Brave' told a beautful love story that will move you to tears!


So this week i saw a short film titled 'Brave'..great movie!

BRAVE is an inspirational short film inspired (but not based) by a true story on page 88 of T.D Jakes 'The Lady, Her Lover & Her Lord'. It is a heartfelt story based on the lives of a young couple, Nathan (Wole Ojo) and Layo (Adesua Etomi) who seem to have happiness, love and comfort.
Tragedy strikes on a Night which was meant to be special and marks the beginning of a nightmare both may not wake from and suddenly, love is not enough.

Directed and written By: Lowla Dee
DOP:Miju Diya
Genre: Drama
Year: 2014
Cast: Adesua Etomi, Wole Ojo, Diana Yekini and Funmi Sobayo

The Script

Inspired by page 88 of Bishop T.D Jake’s The Lady, Her Lover & Her Lord, “Brave” is a well-behaved, inspirational love story about a couple; Layo and Nathan who have been married for two years and are both very much in love with each other. This is established in the first scene where we see Nathan consoling Layo about their inability to bear a child after two years of marriage. The dialogues are well written and makes the story the more believable and appreciated.

Wittingly and subtly, we are told that they aren’t a strong Christian couple when he takes permission to quote a bible verse (which he intended for sexual use anyways. Talk about a sharp guy) which made the woman a little bit surprised. This is used in establishing an important message in the movie. An element which tells me the script writing was smart.

'Brave' is one of the most emotional movies from Nollywood I have seen in a while and was capable of accomplishing what a feature film would have set out to do in its mere thirty minute length.

The sound design was good and within the limit of resources choice of location, set design, makeup and costume was impressive.

Wole Ojo and Adesua Etomi’s execution of the simple and well written story was heartfelt and made it easier for the message intended to be delivered beautifully. Wole Ojo who is the winner of the 4th edition of the popular actors reality show Amstel Malta Box Office proved his worth with the good range of emotions and how quickly the tears rolled down his chick.

It was touching. As the lead actress, She holds her ground solidly against the performance of Wole Ojo and together, they made the movie the marvel it is.

I tottally loved it.
