What is any life, if not the pursuit of a dream? – Vanilla Sky

Nairobi Half Life is a movie about a young man who leaves the country side to come to Nairobi in pursuit of his dream. He gets to Nairobi and action starts almost immediately. The movie follows the things the young man goes through in his pursuit and trying to make it. There is violence, fear, crime, robbery, guns, death,  extortion, but also hopes and dreams, plans and pursuits.

The acting is very good. The story-line is captivating. A number of scenes evoked audible reaction from the audience, so someone in the production team did something right. My wife felt that some of the language was stronger (read: more vulgar) than it actually is in the street. That may be hard to determine, unless you actually operate in the kind of places depicted in the movie. But be warned that sometimes the language was indeed strong.  There were subtitles for the parts where the dialogue was not in English.

The life and settings shown in the movie are probably very different from what most of the people reading blogs on the Web are familiar with, though some indeed may have experienced some of it.

I was provoked to thought by the story and the events shown and made to think a bit more about our society and people trying to make it, which is usually all of us.

I certainly would recommend watching it, but not with children.

Oh, the quote at the beginning of this post is one of my favourites, though I did not watch Vanilla Sky. 🙂
