The movie ‘FALSE’ from the joint production studios of Uche Jumbo and Iroko comes one of the simplest movies of Nollywood’s history. FALSE had a cast of mainly 3 people, locations of not more than 6-7 (well it might have been less) sets and a script that was somewhat genius. The movie features the delectable Kate Henshaw (long time no see) as Toyin Ogunjobi, Kalu Ikeagwu as Greg Ogunjobi and of course Uche Jumbo.
As lovers of popular American Television Law series like Suits, Boston Legal, SVU or any other legal drama, there is what is known as spousal testimonial privilege, where a wife or husband cannot testify against each other but if there is a divorce, that privilege ceases to exist. Now this law applies only in the American Judicial system, with the British, spousal communication is no longer privileged, except in limited circumstances. Not sure what is acceptable legally in Nigeria, but I seriously doubt that a policeman will say a particular person’s statement is inadmissible.
On my final grievance or better still, disgust, I do not get how the doctor can withhold evidence, which was contained in the file she got (from Imelda’s doctor) which was crucial to the investigations only for scenes later; the doctor is shown sharing the information with the patient’s sister and accusing her of knowing her sister was sick and not doing anything about it. Haba nah, we aren’t kids!!! If she was working with the doctor patient confidentiality clause, then she had no right to share that information with the patient’s sister, a coroner’s report should have been prepared and then that can be shared, but I guess that’s asking for too much.
