Road To Yesterday – Nigerian Nollywood Movie Review

“Why do we love? Is it our way of finding our place in this world?
Finding someone who completes us? Or are we just afraid of being alone? Does life still have meaning without love or trust? – Genevieve Nnaji

Road to Yesterday (RTY) is a drama filled movie that tells the story of a particular couple, Victoria and Izu, and their turbulent marriage. The movie starts out telling us of their rocky marriage and thereafter takes us back to the beginning of their love story, and how they ended up where they were in the present time.

The Good
One of the first things that caught my attention in RTY was the casting. Having Genevieve Nnaji back in screen was a delight and the chemistry between herself and Oris was beautiful to watch. However, one of the things that make RTY stand out was the technical aspect of the movie: Picture, Sound design, Lighting.
