Synopsis: Gary Barbar, Marine Transportation Management teacher is a troubled man. His entire life and aspirations hinge on finding the truth and meaning behind the nightmares, violent flashes of visions of a past that knows nothing about. He expects to find answers as he journeys to his fatherland but he is totally unprepared for the complications awaiting him in Benin as the reincarnation of Ifagbai, the rejected son of Akukuo Eghosa, the great warrior, who must be reunited with his love from time past, Esohe. As in the days of Ifagbai and his love Esohe, the same forces have also reincarnated, this time, to frustrate their love a second and final time – A story of undying love, unflinching loyalty, deviously woven intrigues and traditions.

Verdict: Bland. Mechanical. Tactless. Frankly speaking, ‘Esohe’ is a good attempt. The only problem is; we are at a loss as to what they were trying to create. Ultimately however, regardless of whatever it was supposed to be; in the end, ‘Esohe’ turned out to be a below average offering that plays more like a stage play that is boring as hell or a maniacally disjointed slide-show that is poor at communicating its own message. And that’s not even the worst part.

The worst part is that; for some uncanny reason, the producers chose to belabor their poor audience with unwieldy subtitles that disappear very quickly. Consequently, considering that whilst seeing ‘Esohe’, you will spend well over half the time reading these long unfriendly subtitles (languages other than English are extensively spoken), ‘Esohe’ becomes closer to arduous school work than it is entertaining. So, if you choose to see this, you have got work to do- Prepare to read, plenty and fast!

Not recommended. ‘Esohe’ is too stressful to be any fun.
