Elements of production
Sound effect: sound effect was very good, the cast members were audible
Editing: the filming and production was really good, so I’m not surprised the movie editing was also good. The movie was also good. The focus, the blur and the coloring was spectacular.

OVER THE SHOULDER
Couple of days is an interesting movie with a difference and it’s a movie I will recommend one to watch. The story line was good but the movie had a really sparse content. However it was a good break from the norms of the Juju/religious contexts, the trademark of the Nollywood industry. The movie employed the best cinematography money can buy and the settings was good although much time was spent focusing on the scenery and the likes of Ibadan than the story . they also spent a lot of time advertising brands like Linda Ikeji and Agoda park, makes one think they were the major sponsors of the movie. There was comic relief in the movie, Falz”s scenes got me laughing and we see quite a few good acting from our upcoming artistes. The suspense was intriguing as we waited to hear more secrets about each couple and why Cynthia who was believed to be dead was at her funeral?!.
The movie was interesting and there will be a sequel. Honestly I anticipate the sequel, I just hope they can overcome the flaws they had in the first one and we will see something better.
