It was mostly positive reviews as the movie “Half of a Yellow Sun” was screened in Calabar for its first review in Nigeria yesterday.

The movie which is based on a civil war novel of same title by Nigerian author Chimamanda Adichie was screened at the Film House Cinema, Marina Resort yesterday.

Certification of the movie which was initially delayed by the Nigerian Film and Video Censors Board is slated to be released on August 1.

Mr Zac Almeida, a technical director with EbonyLife TV, described the movie as exceptional.

“It was impeccable. As a TV expert I can tell you that the integration between the old actual footage and new shootings blended perfectly. The directing was good. The story line was fantastic. I have been in Calabar for over two years and I could tell most of the local places the movie was shot. I was impressed,” Almeida said.

Also Nonso Nwanah said the movie was well done.

“It was scripting and good editing. Kudos to the director of photography also for a good job.

“It was a story well told. I would say it is not as good as the novel but it is still excellent. Of course there’s no way it can be exactly the same. But it was an excellent story and well presented,” Nwanah said.

Branch Manager of Film House Cinema, Glory Okwuoha, said, “I can say the movie is fantastic. It’s a good love story of two sisters caught in the outcome of the Nigerian civil one.

“The quality is good and we expect it to do well. So we encourage the public to try and see it. It will be open to be shown in all cinemas from August 1.
Despite having scenes that cut across various cities in the country, the movie was shot in locations on in Calabar, Creek Town and the Studio Tinapa.
