Isoken is a great film showcasing the culture of the area of the country. The layout, filming, colors and dressing tell much of the tradition quite well. The film has quite a good inject of laughter and great acting (Isoken, her mother, black boyfriend). However, like most Nigerian films, it becomes too predictable and by halfway, you can guess the end. which is usually a Cinderella ending. the last 10 minutes do the most harm to the film: flying out the next day and the whole family rushing out to meet the new bf at a party ??. Not in nature of the culture around here.
The film is a worthy film of Nigeria and great to learn some of the culture. Especially about weddings and how they are planned. Great work. Expect a better 2nd part someday
Everyone in the Osayande family worries about Isoken. Although she has what appears to be a perfect life - beautiful, successful and surrounded by great family and friends - Isoken is still unmarried at 34 which, in a culture obsessed with marriage, is serious cause for concern. Things come to a head at her youngest sister's wedding when her overbearing mother thrusts her into an orchestrated matchmaking with the ultimate Edo man, Osaze. Osaze is handsome, successful and from a good family, making him the perfect Nigerian husband material. But in an unexpected turn of events, Isoken meets Kevin who she finds herself falling in love with and he just might be what she truly wants in a partner. The only problem is, not only is he not an Edo man, he is Oyinbo (Caucasian). Isoken is a romantic dramedy that explores cultural expectations, racial stereotypes and the bonds that unite families in a touching, dramatic and comedic way.
