Antics of landlords exposed in PATO’S PARADISE

Pato’s Paradise is a film centred on Pato, an urban landlord played by Francis Odega, and Romeo, his son played by Osita Iheme. Romeo takes over Pato’s home as new landlord while his father was away, under the guise that Pato is dead so as to partake in some of the fringe benefits his father enjoys as landlord in an apartment dominated by wayward girls.  Living condition is deplorable with about 20 tenants to one bathroom and toilet.

Yet all the ladies are determined to do just anything to win the heart of the new landlord. Also worthy of note is the subplot featuring a young lawyer, Utomi, that consults for ladies who have threatened to sue the landlord but collects his legal fees in kind. Rated 18 by the National Film and Video Censors Board, it is a beautiful comedy, loaded with wits and action.  Produced and directed by Uchena Umbumabo and Pascal Amanfo, it is indeed a movie that you should watch, but it would have been better if more attention is paid to audio quality and storyline.

It is for you to find out in this tragic comedy that fits properly into the popular saying, You Will Reap What You Sow.  Subtitled in English language, it is indeed a beautiful film that ended well Rated 18 by the National Film and Video Censors Board, we can tell you categorically that the picture quality is excellent, complemented with good sound and a well crafted storyline.

It is no doubt a beautiful film, but it would have been better if attention was paid to editing of the translations.
