Nolly Silver Screen Movie Review: The Gods Are Still Not to Blame

The Gods Are Still Not to Blame has the trappings of an authentic African movie (from the music to the language) that can appeal to a global audience. The film is a contemporary treatment of Oedipus Rex.


The scenery which was shot in Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon is breathtaking and the costumes are top notch. The acting is of a very high standard from both the old and new faces of Nollywood.



Unfortunately, the film is marred by poor lighting and inconsistent subtitling. As a whole, the movie works with its infusion of history, drama, culture, literature and romance.
