My Village People (2021): Movie Review
Plot: “My Village People” is a dark comedy movie that tells relatable African folklore. It follows the tale of a prince, who finds himself in a bizarre love triangle with the marine world and a coven of witches as a result of his reckless lifestyle.
Review: The story revolves around Prince (Bovi Ugboma), a well-off middle-aged man whose life dramatically changes as he returns to his village for his sister’s wedding.
The narrative begins in the village with a hint of conventional humor before launching into a flurry of dark humor and otherworldly manifestations as it travels from the village to Lagos and then returns to the town.
When bad things happen, we all refer to these entities and forces as “village people.”
However, since it is more of a comedy, some of those loopholes could be pardoned by us.
