A true Nollywood triumph, ‘Black Rose’ excels with all round superb performances; it is almost impossible to describe. You have to see it to believe it- The perfection of Ebelle Okaro, the sublimity of Lilian Echelon, the impeccability of Betty Bellor and the “Demonic-ness” of Blossom Chukwujekwu are only a few of the wondrous testimonies to the eminence of ‘Black Rose’. The beauty of its acting is so mind blowing, it cannot be quantified.
From start to finish, ‘Black Rose’ is Mega fun. It’s that rare kind of movie you already know; you have to see it twice even before you are half way through. With a very simple story, non-complex story-telling and absolutely zero efizzy, ‘Black Rose’ succeeds in driving its audience into combo frenzies of earthquake laughs and excited banters.
Over and over again, the audience came alive, together as one; in an extravagant symphony of enjoyment. So sweet was the feeling that, we can confidently say; the only thing that has felt better for us in all things Nigerian this 2018, was watching The Super Eagles defeat Iceland last week. Nothing else comes close!
‘Black Rose’ is truly that beautiful and that enjoyable to see. Though it almost loses its grip on its audience towards the end as it begins to seem unnecessarily drawn out, it still managed a quick comeback and then goes on to close with a Bang! Leaving its audience walking out with vigorous exclamations of satisfaction. You have to see ‘Black Rose’. We can’t recommend it enough.
Synopsis: Rose has a firm understanding of the virtuous woman as imparted by her mother, not so practiced by her sister. Her desire for a better life without selling her dignity seems to be in the person of Desmond, a man she fell in love with at first sight regardless of their differences. He introduces her to everything he knows rather untimely and before she can stop herself, she is wrapped in his world, a place she would rather not be.
Starring: Ebelle Okaro, Lilian Echelon, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Betty Bellor, J.K.A Swanky.
Super recommended! It’s worth every penny and more. Go for it!
PS: It is not for children.
Verdict: Touching. Super Sweet! And absolutely fantastic! ‘Black Rose’ is Gold.
