Indian movies are known for their music, supported by colorful sets and costumes, flamboyant cinematography, and melodramatic romantic stories. Asian movies are known for their action, supported by martial arts and wire-fu stunts. Hollywood movies are known for their big budgets, supported by everything lots of money can buy.
But what positive things are Nollywood films known for?
My opinion: the down-to-earth nature of their plots, the dynamic (shaky) camera work, the dry-looking locations and costumes: these factors give Nigerian movies a documentary feel. They feel like real life stories. Maybe that's what's unique about Nollywood movies? Maybe they are good at making us feel they could happen in real life? I know that's why my friend likes to watch Super Story; she believes the stories are based on real life stories.
What do you think? What's unique about Nigerian movies? In what respects are they superior to foreign ones?
