Okwe plans to use his new identity to return to his young daughter in Nigeria, and Senay plans to start a new life in New York City. He fishes out the blockage and finds a human heart. Jan 25, A great movie He asks about the recent occupants of the room, but nobody seems to know anything, not even the helpful hooker who acts like an unofficial member of the staff.
A natural actor with leading-man presence, he has the rare ability to seem good without seeming sappy, and his quiet intensity here is deepened by the sense that his character carries great sadness from his past.
A touching, sharply crafted story. He drives a minicab during the day, works all night at the hotel, buys illegal herbs at a local cafe to keep himself more or less awake.
Our favourite is the dry Chinese hospital morgue attendant Wongwho plays chess with Okwe, dispensing romance and survival tips, along with purloined medicines.
